On Episode 547 from last week:

Shelley and I have some fun on this August-recorded episode of two Essen 2015 releases.

Joraku by Iori Tsukinami from Moaideas Game Design

and

Domus Domini by Heinz-Georg Thiemann from Franjos



Then THIS week on Episode 548:

Shelley and I try out two games back in August for your consideration:

Sifaka - a first release from Azao Games and designed by Christian Kruchten and Jean-Claude Pellin where you are lemurs searching for mangoes on a grid you build over the course of the game.

and

Tumult Royal(e) - from KOSMOS and designed Klaus and Benjamin Teuber where players race to gather materials and build statues celebrating their own glory.
