Come for 10 minutes of Star Trek Ascendancy review, stay for the space noises! I also got my first look at Widow's Walk, plus the new collector's edition of Escape from the Aliens in Outer Space, one of my all-time favorite hidden movement games.

Additionally, I played Fresco while singing 90's R&B songs, as you do, and compared Trajan favorably to Scythe.

SPOILERS: I talk about Betrayal at House on the Hill: Widow's Walk, Haunt #69

This week I played The Networks, Mexica, more Mechs vs. Minions, a bunch of party games, and jumped back into mobile gaming with the Star Realms iOS app!

Light spoilers! Mechs vs. Minions and Charterstone both begin by immediately unlocking content, so anything you hear is technically a spoiler. If you're ok with knowing just a little bit about each, go ahead!

I spent the weekend at the Stonemaier Games Design Day in St. Louis, and got in games with Cody from Waitress Games and our friend Melissa. Lots of new stuff, including a long talk about Secret Hitler - as a game, as an experience, and as it's compared to The Resistance.

A trip to Chicago for an old friend's wedding was the perfect excuse to play some old favorites, plus my first game of Via Nebula.

I also played the 3rd game of SeaFall this week, which was a blast.

Bonus content: listen to me ramble about why I'm bad at online game tournaments, but still enjoy playing Tak digitally.

DFW Nerd Night's 4-year anniversary was a great chance to try a bunch of new games, including Potion Explosion and IKI.

I taught New York 1901 and Innovation to old friends I hadn't seen in quite some time, and also had a great time with San Juan, Cyclades, and Tides of Madness.

A semi-weekly podcast in which I talk about the games I've played and the people I play them with.

I give my impressions of Star Trek: Frontiers, Mystic Vale, Epic PVP, and Pandemic: The Cure, as well as a recap of our Labor Day game of Mega Civilization with some special rules for a fundraiser.
