Draft Mechanic Episode #71: One Deck Dungeon (six-pack review & on-tap); Mystery of the Temples preview; Hardback; Pitch Deck; SMaSH beer & Soloable Games

Dungeons! They’re everywhere these days, right? Always opportunities to delve for treasure, so what makes One Deck Dungeon unique? We’ll find out today in our Six-Pack review of this rogue-like, pocket sized dungeon delving card game. If temples are more your thing, we’ve got a preview of Mystery of the Temples (hitting Kickstarter this week!). And then there’s Hardback, a deck builder of letters, and Pitch Deck, a company pitching game of tropes. We round this one up by explaining what SMaSH means in the beer world (no crushing is involved) and we ask the Slack about what makes a game great for solo play. Adventurer, don’t fear going into this episode alone!
