Draft Mechanic Episode 21: CMoN Expo / The Grizzled

Cool. What is…. cool? Well, for one weekend in Atlanta, Cool was the Cool Mini or Not Expo where CMoN showed off some of their newest, hottest and freshest gaming properties. We got to play Potion Explosion, Masmorra, The Godfather, Arcadia Quest: Pets, The Grizzled: At Your Orders and loads more since our last episode and we’re ready to give you the cool, cool rundown on what’s in store from the little publisher gone big out of ATL. We continue the CMoN love today with on-tap beer pairings for their big hit in a little box, The Grizzled. Finally, we’ve got a beer traveler’s guide to Atlanta with some awesome spots to check out if you’re headed on down to Georgia. So sit back, relax, grab a pint and enjoy the show!

Two player, three player, four player and more - social games, tile games, magic games, city games, card games, games, games, GAMES! Phew. BREATHE. Ok. We also do a review of Quadropolis - let’s call it a four-pack rather than a six-pack review.
