In Episode 13, Craig and Dave discuss the important topic of what criteria, mechanics, or other qualities make a board game a keeper, one they keep going back to. They also take a look at a number of small games, like Spyfall, releasing later this year from Cryptozoic, Lost Legacy: The Starship from Alderac, Bandu from Zoch, and the Bravest Warriors Cooperative Dice Game from Cyptozoic. They also announce their Valentines Day Games for Two Giveaway where they’re giving away a copy of Patchwork, designed by Uwe Rosenberg and published by Mayfair and Akrotiri, designed by Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim and published by Z-Man Games. They also discuss upcoming reviews from the Indie Game Alliance line of games, define FLGS in their What the What? segment and talk about a bunch of games on Dave’s list. Lastly, they pick up the guantlet thrown down by a fellow podcaster. Ball’s in your court now.
