Episode 112 - Bonfire, Hostage Negotiator, Aeon's End Legacy

On this episode Steve, Sarah and Dan discuss games that are meant to be played with kids, but are just as much fun with adults. Have you ever taken one of your child's games and played it without them? Ever watched kids playing a game and thought that it looked like fun? We share our Top 3 kids' games that you can play without them!!

In our Sizzling Games, Sarah has been rallying her gnomes to build a Bonfire, Steve has been having a blast as a budding mage in Aeon's End Legacy, and Dan has been rescuing hostages while moonlighting as a Hostage Negotiator.

We wrap up last week's Bracket Battle match-up (Teotihuacan vs Nemo's War), and we set up the next duel: Res Arcana vs Cartographers.

Finally, in Swear An Oath, Steve continues his adventure down the path of Uwe Rosenberg games by playing Hallertau. Sarah is continuing to play all of her unplayed games in 2020, while still working on her 10x10 Challenge. Meanwhile Dan is still trying to finish his first game of Mage Knight, while exploring the intricacies of Atlantis Rising. New oaths for the team are Remember Our Trip (Steve), Teotihuacan Custom Challenges (Dan), and in a charity gesture: "helping Dan finish Mage Knight" (Sarah).
