Draft Mechanic #48: Near and Far six pack review & on tap

Draft Mechanic #48: Near and Far six pack review & on tap

Today’s episode of Draft Mechanic comes to you from a great distance! Well, thematically. We’re in the same studio as always, but today’s game is quite the journey: Near and Far from Red Raven games! We give it the full six-pack review, and it’s a doubleheader as well as our game on tap. In recent plays, we talk about Thrash & Roll, Secret Hitler, Jaipur, Skull and more! Also, Jake takes over the beer segment to dig into the controversy surrounding a partial ‘investment’ into the community beer rating website RateBeer. Hope you’ve got comfortable shoes on; let’s go on a journey!
