We sit down to play Sushi Go! With Matt and Jeff. Will Katie still enjoy this drafting game from GameWright games or was the hype from our Cloud City episode poorly placed. Matt also lets us know the proper pronunciation of the word Chopsticks.

Hopefully the last time that you need to hear an episode of Love Letter ever. And we kick it with the winner of our demo copy of Love Letter Ben Green. What will he think of AEG’s super hit?

Ape games is a Kickstarter darling. Most of their projects get funded and all of them look amazing. Rarrr! Is no different, with it’s stylized character cards, it’s unique drafting and battle mechanics, and it’s comic book inspired art direction Rarrr! immediately grabs your attention when spotted on the shelf. We put it on the table to see if a beautifully constructed exterior directly corelates to a well crafted interior. Does Rarrr! hold up as a game when you pull away the glossy pretty parts?

So there is this card game called Magic: The Gathering and it is supposedly popular amongst the kids these days. We take a look at this Richard Garfield classic from Wizards of the Coast. We also see if this game is worth the hype or if it is just another fad like pogs or Go-Gos Crazy Bones.
