Draft Mechanic #78: The 2017 Redux!

Draft Mechanic #78: The 2017 Redux!

Draft Mechanic Episode #78: The 2017 Redux! Looking back at 2017, six months later. Plus: Tokyo Highway, Circle the Wagons, Carcassonne: Amazonas and more

It’s the middle of the year! What better time to take a weathered look back at last year’s games? We’ve played more 2017 games, and the hype has died down from others, so it’s time to recalculate those lists and see how it’s shaken out! We’ve also got Circle the Wagons on tap, recent plays of Carcassonne: Amazonas and Tokyo Highway, some odd beer news from across the pond, and a pair of Kickstarters that couldn’t be more thematically distant. Sit back, relax, grab a pint and enjoy the show!
