Podcast #114: The Ocean Grasps a Van

It’s a full house, baby! In this episode of the podcast Ava and Quinns discuss FIVE games, each and every one of which they are IMPRESSED BY. Has that ever happened on the podcast before? We’re not going back to check. That could take *minutes*.

Quinns can offer some early impressions of Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 (04:15), Ava’s been dueling a stranger in Innovation (19:36) (and you can read Ava’s splendid roundup of Chudyk’s games here), there’s a lovely drawing game called Geometric Art (34:12), a revisit of Spirit Island (41:12) and we close the show with some impressions of the hot new card game Spicy (57:35).

Thanks to our amazing community, podcast transcripts are available here, and are usually completed within a week of the podcast’s release.

Ava: First up is the news that Castles of Tuscany is a thing that exists. This is a follow up to Stefan Feld’s Castles of Burgundy, but we have yet to see how similar it is, or how different it is, or just about anything about how it is. It’s coming soon from Alea, and I’ve rarely been so excited by simply the NAME of a thing.
