Paul: Welcome! Welcome to a very particular corner of my home. While apartment life in Vancouver doesn’t afford me the sort of cavernous attic that we peeped into when Quinns talked about his game collection, I do have a very particular place where I keep mine, all safe and warm and pristine. Welcome to my Games Closet. Welcome to the home of my fun. Please, take my hand as I invite you into a midnight tour of a very snug, very intimate space in my life. Don’t worry! You’re quite safe.

Oh god, it’s too much. Asmodee has announced a new edition of Citadels – the first game SU&SD ever reviewed – and Quinns has a hangover that’s lasted all day. Is our end near?! Not yet, it’s not. In this episode Quinns proves he’s young by playing the Pokémon Trading Card Game, Happy Pigs and Via Nebula, while Paul proves he’s not by playing Meuterer, Mission: Red Planet and the profoundly apt Great Dinosaur Rush.

Anyway! Let’s kick off with some good old-fashioned wooden chunks.
