Draft Mechanic Episode 29: Islebound six-pack review, Tavarua on tap, The Beer Primer: IPA
Take a deep breath of that salty sea air. Well, not too deep, because then you’re breathing water. Take a respectable breath of it, because we have happened upon a pair of seafaring games for your perusal! Our big review today is the new adventure sandbox game Islebound from Red Raven Games. For our on-tap feature, we talk about the surfing game Tavarua from Far Off Games, and we spice things up with a little bit of talk about Above and below, another Red Raven Games jam. Then thanks to a listener suggestion, we’re going to dig into what it means to be an India Pale Ale in the first installment of our new beer style segment, The Beer Primer! So kick off your sandals and find a nice spot on the beach for today’s episode!
