In Episode 37, Craig takes a look at expansions for two of his favorite Antoine Bauza games, in Takenoko Chibis, an expansion about baby pandas, and Tokaido Crossroads, a game about even more choices on Tokaido road. He discusses what he thinks was necessary additions in the expansions, what didn’t need to exist, and his overall thoughts of how the expansions add or detract from the base games. Also in this episode, Craig goes in depth about Above and Below from Ryan Laukat’s Red Raven Games, and if the game can blend mechanisms from Thematic games and Euro games successfully.
