Draft Mechanic #50: The Summer of Hot Games!

Draft Mechanic #50: The Summer of Hot Games!

Episode 50! That’s half of a hundred! I’m not really sure how we made it this far, but nothing left to do but keep going! We’re fresh back from our trip to Dice Tower Con, and boy howdy did we play a big ol’ pile of games. Such a big stack of games, in fact, that we’ve got too many to talk about in this episode… or two, or three, or… well. You see where this is going. So, with the monumental Episode 50 under our belt, we’re launching The Summer of Hot Games with WEEKLY episodes through Gen Con where we look at the latest and greatest and get you ready for the spectacle in Indianapolis. Today we’re talking about Flipships and The Fox in the Forest; we’ve got a kickstarter preview of Star Scrappers: Cave In, we discuss a pair of Felds, put Rococo on tap, answer listener questions and do a giveaway for a fun game from Green Couch Games! And to think, this is only the start of the Summer of Hot Games… you’re gonna need some sunscreen for your meeples!
