Episode 10, whence we descend into Inferno to save the city of Arcadia!  Arcadia Quest: Inferno is a standalone expansion for the original Arcadia Quest.  This week we discuss our recent play-through of the new Inferno campaign and give our thoughts on whether it improves upon the original game or not.  Our Music With Board Games segment returns with our suggestions based on what we listened to throughout our hellish campaign.

Joe describes to us his recent plays of two games: Santoriniand Rhino Hero.  It sounds as amazing as it's title suggests.  We also share our thoughts on the Logan movie, as well as bizarre indie game on PC & consoles called Manual Samuel.

Episode 9, the one where we try to stay calm while engaged in submarine warfare (and fail)!  Captain Sonar is a real-time, team game for 2-8 players, and we weigh in on whether it's great fun on just great stress.  Our Music With Boardgames segment included some great fan suggestions, though it should be noted that the sonar soundbite used in the podcast is not from the YouTube video originally linked to us; the original creeped Robert out too much!

Joe extends his thanks to Chris Cantrell (of Riot Games) after receiving a resolution on his defective crystal (from Mechs Vs Minions).  We also had the opportunity to play the older (and sadly now out of print) WarHammer 40k strategy game Forbidden Stars (from Fantasy Flight Games) and give our initial impressions.  Rum & Bones: Second Tide (Cool Mini Or Not) is arriving in the mail and we gave the core box a quick spin.  Also from CMON, our Arcadia Quest: Inferno kickstarter arrived in one giant shipment, and we're plugging our way through the new campaign therein.  Finally, Joe saw The Great Wall: the movie where Matt Damon fights monsters on the Great Wall of China.  It's a thing.
