Draft Mechanic Episode #75: Geekway 2018 Recap & Pot De Vin on tap

In today’s episode, we’re looking back at our trip to St Louis for Geekway to the West! This episode’s going to break free from the normal structure as we want to talk games, games and more games! We talk about games new, old and rare that we found in the incredibly deep Geekway games library and about the convention as a whole.
