Draft Mechanic Episode 12: New Dawn six-pack, The Manhattan Project on tap

BOOOM! It’s a new Draft Mechanic, coming in hot! Today we talk about recent plays of Legacy: The Testament of Duke de Crecy and the Bloody Inn. We blast off into deep space with a six-pack review of New Dawn from Artipia and Stronghold Games. Our on-tap game this week is The Manhattan Project and we’ve got four explosively excellent brews to pair it up with. We’ll round this episode with a discussion of the eruption of flavored variants of beers and games. So sit back, relax, grab a pint and enjoy the show!
