Draft Mechanic Episode 31: Terraforming Mars; Dan, Live from Essen; GABF 2016 Results
Space. The next frontier. Well, hopefully, anyway - we should really get going! I think the first place we should start is Mars. Maybe we should consider terraforming it, building it to our needs as a launchpad to the unknown? What better way to prepare for that endeavor than playing the new release from Stronghold Games, Terraforming Mars! We’re giving this new hotness the double-feature treatment with a full review as well as an on-tap beer pairing. We’ve also got alliterative titles galore with recent plays of Potion Explosion and Schotten-Totten! For the first time, we’ve also got a guest star as Dan from our TIME Stories team went overseas for work and coincidentally ended up at Essen Spiel 2016. Dan shares his experience after his first day in the Essen hall and talks about the sights and games. We round it up today with a look at the news from the Great American Beer Festival that just took place in Colorado. Enjoy!
