Episode 110 - Kompromat, Heroes of Land, Air and Sea, Dawn of the Zeds

On this episode Steve and our Sydney Team (Sarah and Mitch) pose the question: If you only could only have 10 games in your collection - how would you structure it, what games would you include, and how do you cull your collection down to just ten?

In our Sizzling Games, Sarah has been a Blackjack-playing spy in Kompromat, Steve has revisited the 4X epicness in Heroes of Land, Air & Sea, and Mitch has been exploring the complexities of the later levels in Dawn of the Zeds.

We wrap up last week's Bracket Battle match-up (Under Falling Skies vs Clans of Caledonia), and we set up the next duel: Teotihuacan vs Nemo's War.

Finally in Swear An Oath, Steve enjoyed the Uwe Rosenberg classic Le Havre. Sarah is continuing to play all of her unplayed games in 2020, still working on her 10x10 Challenge, and also managed to play Stephenson's Rocket. Meanwhile Mitch has every excuse under the sun as to why he still hasn't played Star Wars: Rebellion. New oaths for the team are Bonfire (Sarah), Hallertau (Steve), and to complete all levels of Dawn of the Zeds (Mitch).
