Podcast #95: The Danish Crisis

a small ham, a terrible roundabout, quintin's simulated subconscious
In this special episode of our award-winning podcast, Matt and Quinns talk about their trip to Danish board game convention Fastaval.

Games discussed include the superb Hansa Teutonica (02:56), the as-yet unannounced Deep Blue (12:02), the also-unannounced Auto (15:50), Flamme Rouge’s unnamed campaign expansion (24:05), That’s Not Lemonade (35:43) and Mid-Life Crisis (45:23).

Finally, we close with a discussion of Fastaval itself, and what makes it so magical (59:18). Is it the terrifying, viking-like cleaning crew? Is it the black tie award ceremony? Is it the unparalleled gender equality, or the world-class roleplaying games?

It’s all of these things, and more. Huge thanks to the organisers for choosing us as this year’s guests of honour.
