Podcast #49: A Dream Home and an Ill Moon

In what’s surely our most mathematically pleasing podcast ever, today Paul and Quinns discuss 6 games (2 of which they’d recommend) before answering 4 emails and examining 2 folk games. What’s next in this sequence? Why, your enjoyment of course! Games discussed in this cast include the bucolic visions of Dream Home and Cottage Garden. We’ve got two spritely deck-building games, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle and Aeon’s End. We’ve also got two interesting spins on existing classics, 4 Gods being a wild interpretation of Carcassonne, and Mythos Tales as a Lovecraftian sequel to Consulting Detective. Enjoy, everybody. And credit to Peter Dringautzki for the podcast image, with his beautiful photo of Cottage Garden!
