Games discussed in this episode include the fascinating Taverns of Tiefan Thal (01:51), the taut little Feld game Carpe Diem (13:48), the simple-yet-delightful Luxor (26:47), the gross-yet-charming Silk (33:13) and the simply superb Rail Pass (49:37). Matt and Quinns also discuss some of the video reviews they've been working on, including Pipeline (1:00:58) and Too Many Bones (1:06:54).
In this episode Matt and Quinns share their experiences with Wingspan (you'll find the NPI review here), Chronicles of Crime (our SHUX Preview here), Franchise and Woodlouse Chaos, before strapping on their tuxedos for the annual Pearple's Choice Awards, which we last celebrated back on podcast #73.
Who will win Best Game? Best Production? Best Designer? And will SU&SD's audience finally decide that mum and dad... are bad and wrong?
Enjoy the show, everybody, and thanks again to clg6000 for putting these awards together on our forum.
And that's just the beginning of this... peculiarly positive cast. Paul and Quinns soon move on to the happy kitchens of Wok Star (3rd edition), there's talk of the fun they had in Fungi, and of the surprisingly strong Champions of Midgard. There's also some disappointment about Village Attacks, but it wouldn't be a SU&SD podcast without some vigorous complaining, would it?
Finally, the pair end with a particularly sticky reader mail. Has their taste in games changed with time? And if so, how?
