We have a new year ahead of us and we are looking forward to what is to come in Season 12 of RDTN. Thanks to all that have been with us over the years. But before we got out of 2023, we played some amazing games and one, Prime Minister from GMT, has us talking about it whenever we are together.

Got a gem to the table in a small card game that came out in 2019 and that is Ghosts of Christmas. Enjoyed the twist on how the high card below trump can change as the hand is played out. And any card game with you must make your bid is always one that I can appreciate.

Sankore from Osprey games was another big game that we got on the table. Now the biggest drawback for us was setup, but the game was probably one of those that needs many, many plays to appreciate the complexity of how to get the best score. The mechanics are straight forward, so the teach wasn’t’ bad, but how to score at the end caught us off guard. Looking forward to getting it to the table again.

Happy New Year and thanks for coming back.
