Draft Mechanic Episode 52: RAXXON review; Century: Spice Road review & on tap; Spires; NMBR 9; Unearth

It’s week 3 of our Summer of Hot Games! Today we’ve got another exciting Kickstarter preview: Before the Earth Explodes from Green Couch Games! Also, we’ve got another special Double Feature review for you this week of two hot, hot games. First up, we look at the (finally released!) Century: Spice Road, the debut title from Plan B Games, and then we back it up by putting it on tap with six beer pairing choices. We’re also going to do a full review of RAXXON, the secretly-released new [REDACTED] from [REDACTED], which features a [REDACTED] that we didn’t expect. In recent plays, we’ve got Spires, NMBR 9 and Unearth. And going on the theme of RAXXON, Danielle’s got a beer segment in which she talks about the different kinds of things that can spoil your beer and cause some very unpleasant side effects. Don’t worry, though, because RAXXON is here to help!
