Draft Mechanic Episode #110: Letter Jam, Las Vegas Royale, Lanterns Dice, Keyforge Blue

Happy birthday, us! It’s the start of Season Five and our fourth anniversary, and we’ve decided to be pretty business-as-usual about this one. Especially after that Episode 100 blowout! So we’re reviewing Letter Jam, the delicious, delectable new word game from CGE. We’ve got games with subtitles in the recent plays: Las Vegas Royale, Lanterns Dice: Lights in the Sky, and Keyforge: The Blue Ones. I mean, Age of Ascension. Yep! Danielle’s gonna tell us why we need to keep draft beer lines clean, and our listeners are going to tell us what the lyrics to our theme song are, because even the guy that sung them doesn’t remember them. Let’s go!
