Draft Mechanic Episode 40: A Feast for Odin six-pack; Burger Up on tap; New York Slice; Paris Connection & Star Trek Ascendancy

I sure hope you’re hungry, because this episode of Draft Mechanic is super stuffed! We’ve got a big review for you - Uwe Rosenberg’s latest crate of cardboard and wood, A Feast for Odin! We’re both discussing Burger Up and putting it on tap with four great thematic beer pairings. In other recent plays, we look at New York Slice, Star Trek Ascendancy and Paris Connection. There’s a whole cartload of upcoming games news and Kickstarters, and Danielle wraps it all up to go with a collection of news bites from the beer world. Pace yourself, you can always take a second plate!

Draft Mechanic Episode 39: Two-player games six-pack; Citrus on tap; Isle of Skye & Avenue

Welcome back to another episode of Draft Mechanic! Love is in the air… or at least, Hallmark decided to place Valentine’s Day in the second week of February - and that means it’s time for a six-pack of two player games! In addition to that burst of gaming goodness, we’ve also got recent plays of Isle of Skye and Avenue. We’re putting Citrus on tap this week as well with five super juicy beers. And to round it out, we’re going back to the season to talk about beers made with aphrodisiacs. We hope you enjoy today’s show, so let’s get to it!
