Draft Mechanic Episode 29: Islebound six-pack review, Tavarua on tap, The Beer Primer: IPA

Take a deep breath of that salty sea air. Well, not too deep, because then you’re breathing water. Take a respectable breath of it, because we have happened upon a pair of seafaring games for your perusal! Our big review today is the new adventure sandbox game Islebound from Red Raven Games. For our on-tap feature, we talk about the surfing game Tavarua from Far Off Games, and we spice things up with a little bit of talk about Above and below, another Red Raven Games jam. Then thanks to a listener suggestion, we’re going to dig into what it means to be an India Pale Ale in the first installment of our new beer style segment, The Beer Primer! So kick off your sandals and find a nice spot on the beach for today’s episode!

Hello! Welcome to our party. What’s the celebration? Oh, it’s our first year anniversary episode! Somehow, the internet has allowed us to continue so we are going to kick things up a notch this year. How? Well, first off we are starting a Fantasy Board Game League and we need YOUR help to pick the victors! We also have the super thematic Dead of Winter on tap and we talk about a handful of recent plays. Finally we wrap up the episode with a discussion about the state of the podcast as well as a quick look into our beer histories as we each pick six beers that helped shape us as craft beer enthusiasts. Thank you so much for listening this first year and we hope to continue providing great podcastery for a while to come!
