Draft Mechanic Episode 10: Mysterium on Tap, Patchwork, Babel, Euphoria, Deception, Nations, Buyouts & Mergers

It’s the last episode of 2015! Over the Christmas break we visited Empire Board Game Library in Albuquerque NM and raided their shelves for gaming goodness. We dug into the two-player battlefields of Patchwork and Babel, and then displaced some workers in the land of Euphoria. On a second visit, we stretched our lying and deduction muscles with the Dukes of Dice with a few rounds of Deception: Murder in Hong Kong. Finally, we stood the test of time with a mammoth five-player game of Nations. Our game on tap this episode is Mysterium, and we’ve got four spectral brews to help you glean understanding from the other side. Finally - 2015 has been a year of buyouts and mergers in both the game and beer industry - we dig deep into the parallels and differences and discuss whether or not we should be scared of Big Beer and Big Game.

There’s a ton of games to talk about so sit back, relax, grab a pint and enjoy the show!
