We are starting something new here at RDTN, we are going to do train games in 2020. That is right, you will hear us talk about train games throughout the year. And we are starting out with a classic, Age of Steam. While the mechanics are simple, you really need to plan ahead as you play. Hope to get this on the table again before we forget the rules

When the game Francis Drake was played and we talked about it on the show in Episode 30, people said, if you really liked the progression track, you need to give Egizia a try. Well, we got the new Egizia Shifting Sands from Stronghold Games played and the mechanic of progressing with your pawns and not going backwards was very rewarding. It has been over 160 episodes since we played Francis Drake, just not sure which is best. Maybe we can get it played again and compare the two on a later show.

Be sure to check out the Secret Cabal’s 200th episode where our stinger makes sense.
