This week, our hosts decided to see if the Kennerspiel des Jahres Winning Game Series, Exit: The Game, was worthy of its' 2017 win over show favorite, Terraforming Mars. Is this something that can bring people into the hobby and yet still satisfy veteran gamers? Does it ACTUALLY feel like an escape room in-a-box? Or Do you feel like you are just cutting things with scissors and comparing cards to each other? Find out inside! The first half of the episode is dedicated to how our hosts feel about the game system as a whole(spoiler-free), whereas the second half is chock full of spoilers as they dive deep into each of the three first games, The Abandoned Cabin, The Pharaoh's Tomb, and The Science Lab.
