Draft Mechanic Episode 37: Santorini six-pack review; Evolution: Climate on tap; Unlock!
Welcome back to another episode! The following events take place between 11:00am and 12:00pm (or at least they did when we recorded). There’s an abnormal amount of real-time games in today’s episode (two) as we talk about the Unlock! demo kit and FUSE. We’ve got a few other neat recent plays to talk about too: Favor of the Pharaoh for rolling fistfuls of dice, and Ascending Empires for flicking discs throughout space. Our big feature today is the just released (or upcoming) Santorini from Roxley games. Abstract strategy, but dripping with theme? Say no more! Well, we’ll say some more - that’s the reason you’re listening to us in the first place! We’re rounding out this episode by putting Evolution Climate on tap with five great thematic craft beer pairings. So sit back, relax, grab a pint and enjoy the show!
