Draft Mechanic Episode 32: Windup War preview & designers interview; Puerto Rico on tap; SeaFall; 51st State; Betrayal at House on the Hill: Widows Walk

Hello! Welcome back to another episode of Draft Mechanic! Today we’ve got an interview with designers Jessica Chu & Katie Khau and we’re taking a look at their upcoming game Windup War, being published by Bellwether Games - and it’s on Kickstarter now for another two weeks! We’re digging into the classics as well today with Puerto Rico on tap. We’ve also got some cool recent plays: 51st State; the new “Widows Walk” expansion for Betrayal at House on the Hill; and we’re also going over our first impressions of SeaFall after two games. Finally, we’re going to discuss the news out of Massachusetts where a craft brewery is looking to help out the little guys by starting their own distribution company. We hope you enjoy today’s episode, so sit back, relax, grab a pint and enjoy the show!
