Hot on the heels of our 2017 redux, we’re finishing up our Near & Far campaign and talk about what we’ve learned over the 10-game story. No spoilers here, unless you’re worried about knowing it’s a great game! We’re putting Hasbro’s music mixing masterpiece DropMix on tap, and visiting Carcassonne’s “The Castle” standalone in the CarcaZone. Recent plays include the hyped Century: Eastern Wonders, and Dragoon - plus there’s news, beer talk, discussion with the Slack, and crowdfunding as well! Oh, and you see that right - Draft Mechanic shirts are REAL!
