Garrett's Games and Geekiness

Shelley and I discuss the beautiful Abyss (is it a good game too?) and Grog Island, a lighter game from eggertspiele (especially given their recent output of games such as Yedo, Rococo, etc.).

Games Discussed:

Abyss by Bruno Cathala and Charles Chevallier (artwork by Xavier Collette) from Bombyx and Asmodee

Grog Island by Michael Rieneck from eggertspiele and Pegasus Spiele

Enjoy listening!

Shelley and I tackle the re-development of 51st State and another farming game from Uwe Rosenberg this week.

Imperial Settlers by Ignacy Trzewiczek and from Portal Games reimplements his previous title 51st State and requires players to manage unique, player-specific decks over 5 rounds of play.

Fields of Arle by Uwe Rosenberg and from Z-Man uses some similar Agricola/Caverna mechanisms in a game for only 1-2 players that lasts 9 rounds.  Choose your various actions wisely!
