Hang in there, we get to the games once we get pass the discussion on music. You know us, we love our music and when we get the opportunity to share something interesting, we jump on it. The first game is Brainwaves that Marty got to play with his family. This is about helping with your memory and at RDTN, this is needed. The other discussions about the games we got to play demonstrates that point

Atlantis Rising was released by Z-Man games in 2012 and has been re-released by Elf Creek Games with enhanced components and rule improvements. When Atlantis Rising was released, the game was said to be incredible hard and may have not gotten a fair shake. However, over the years, people began to enjoy it and it became one of those “grail” type games where it was hard to find. Elf Creek Games has brought it back and it is a good thing. Such a solid cooperative game and one that if you get a chance, worth giving a shot.

Then there is Stellar that just knocked us for a loop. Two player card game that has strategy all over it. Such a solid game that challenges you to not just go through the motions, you have to pay attention to what is happening. You need to watch your opponents strategy. You must play offensively and defensively. Decisions are tight and if not thought through, it will be a major inconvenience.

Next episode the brown carpet is being rolled out for our Annual Squirrelly Awards.
