Episode 114 - Le Havre, Juicy Fruits, Mini Express

On this episode Steve and Def are joined by our very own Internet sensation - Mike, fresh from some online gaming sessions this week with Lincoln and Nikki from Game Night! and then Stella from Meeple University. (links below)

In our Sizzling Games segment Steve has been continuing his love affair with Uwe Rosenberg in Le Havre, Mike introduces us to the islands of Juicy Fruits (and introduces us to mangosteens, which I still swear is a made-up word!), and Def relives his childhood dreams of being a train conductor by playing Mini Express.

The Topic of the Pod is our most anticipated games: based on Kickstarters, expansions, retail releases, and rumours. Leave a comment on our socials if we didn't mention the game that you are most looking forward to!

In the Board Game Bracket 2.0 we settle last week's match-up: Cartographers vs Res Arcana, before we launch the next battle: Wingspan vs Archaeology.

We quickly check the mailbag for a quick Roast - the team share their favourite 2-player games and 4-player games, Def discloses his gaming priorities when moving house, and we laugh at the longest games the crew have ever played.

Finally in Swear An Oath, Mike fulfilled his oath of attempting 5x games solo and had an absolute blast. Def swore to play Scythe against not one but FOUR automas, and remarkably he came second! And Steve enjoyed the delightful Remember Our Trip. New oaths include Tiny Epic Dinosaurs and Stone Age (Mike), an online game with Steve & Mike (Def), and another Uwe Rosenberg classic: Caverna (Steve).
