Today on Draft Mechanic, Jake and Danielle try to save a forest from an approaching blaze in Sylvion; fight for control of nebulas and planetary systems as they blast off into Galaxy of Trian; and return to simpler, squarer tile laying times and choose great beer pairings for Carcassonne. All this plus our most anticipated new releases from the Spiel convention in Essen, and the breaking news of the potential fourth biggest corporate merger in history that threatens to make even more bland watery beer!

Today on Draft Mechanic, we talk about Libertalia and Dead Man's Draw. This gets us thinking - what makes the pirate theme so ripe for use in board games? For our game on tap, we feature Seasons and pair it up with excellent beers to represent the four seasons. We close out the show discussing the results from the 2015 Great American Beer Festival in Colorado.
