June 17th - Benefits and Blasters
Chad, Adam and Ryan discuss the benefits of board gaming - from kids’ skills with taking turns and graceful winning to adults’ learning to work together and expanding your public speaking there’s a number of benefits that board games provide. Your three hosts discuss the great number of ways our active hobby improves the lives of its players.
After that we discuss Eclipse, our feature game of the episode. This euro-space-hybrid is soon up for its second edition kickstarter, so we spend some time enumerating how great the first edition is! Space battles, research, exploration, and colorful dice - we’ve got it all!
We wrap up talking about some of the games we’ve played and we’re hoping to play - Legacy of Dragonholt, The Shipwreck Arcana, Twilight Struggle, Incursion, Arkham Horror TCG, and more!
