Draft Mechanic Episode #84: Three Year Anniversary! The Ultimate CarcaZone, Into the Black Forest, Spirits of the Wild

Hello there! I hope you’ll allow us a bit of celebration as we start our fourth season off with a bang - the biggest CarcaZone ever! We’re going to go through all of the major expansions and share our reviews of each. We’ve got a kickstarter preview of Green Couch Games’ Into the Black Forest, talk about Spirits of the Wild, and share the biggest on-tap beer pairing ever with beers for each feature across all ten Carcassonne expansions. Our Slack channel wraps it up with a look at their favorite games of the last 3 years! Thanks so much for tuning in, and we hope you’re excited for another year of Draft Mechanic like we are!
