Lots of game talk believe it or not. Imperium is a classic style of deck building with a strong engine building mechanic. In the games played, there was strong interaction and then there was solitary play. It all depends on the factions that are on the table. Mandala Stones is going to be a favorite light game for the table. However, there are some strategic moments in the game that you will need to consider to come out on top. Mazescape is a simple game that will be a hit or miss if you like the solo style games. At first, you might dismiss it, but if you like clever puzzle games, then it might be one to try. If you like games where you have to write on a pad of paper, definitely check out Doodle Dungeon. Lots of interaction and just a simple pleasure to get on the table.

Thanks for listening and all the Dad Jokes that were submitted. See you in two weeks.

Love getting the Empires of the North to the table and when a new expansion comes out, get very excited. Egyptians is the newest expansion and it feels different from all the rest. I also enjoy it when an expansion just flows and both these factions seemed to be easy to play to us. The engine you needed to build was right there and easy to grasp. If you enjoy Empires of the North, then this might be a must add

Two players games that involve strategic war battles are always something I enjoy, but the time to set up and play is sometimes a roadblock to getting a game to the table. But 300: Earth & Water is small footprint game that is fast to play and easy to understand. Based on the battle that most of us know from the movie 300, this game is around can the Greeks hold off the advance of the Persians over five rounds. If they do, they win. If the Persians can beat down the defenses, then they win.

Thanks for listening we do appreciate it
