Draft Mechanic Episode 58: The 7th Continent review, Part 1 & On Tap beer pairings; Photosynthesis; Lazer Ryderz; Raiders of the North Sea; FBGL Update and Understanding Yeast in Beer


In today’s land-mass sized episode, we dig in deep to The 7th Continent for the first of what will be several reviews of this mammoth card-based exploration game. How is it holding up after ten-plus hours of gameplay? Judging by the length of this episode, we had a lot to say! We’re also giving it the On Tap treatment with five great beers for your next continental exploration session. In recent plays, we look at Photosynthesis, Lazer Ryderz, and Raiders of the North Sea. Danielle wraps up this episode with a discussion of a history of our understanding of yeast in beer. I hope you’ve got plenty of durability left on your podcast player, because this episode’s a big one!
