Draft Mechanic Episode 44: Anachrony six-pack and on tap; Fugitive; Valeria: Card Kingdoms & Veggie Garden

So, buckle up for a wild temporal ride! Danielle wraps up this episode with a discussion about how beer tastes can change over time! In the news, we’ve got some new app implementations and a video game coming to board games. We’re also going to talk about some recent plays: Fugitive, Valeria: Card Kingdoms and Veggie Garden. Today, we dive in and do double duty with our six-pack review and our on-tap feature. It’s a big hefty euro that features time travel as a major mechanic - quite the headache! Though, that’s what you get when you’re reviewing a game like Anachrony. Bear with me, this is going to be a confusing one. In today’s episode, we’ve got quite the paradox!
