Episode 12, where we review T.I.M.E. Stories - specifically the core box, featuring the Asylum scenario, designed by Peggy Chassenet, Manuel Rozoy, and published by Space Cowboys.  To do so, we'll travel through time to prevent a temporal fault from rupturing our present timeline!  If we fail on this mission, we'll be forced to repeat it again and again until we succee--

As T.I.M.E. Stories is a very story-sensitive adventure game, we've respectfully placed any comments that venture on (light) spoiler territory into their own segment, beginning at the 0:57:24 mark.  Please skip this portion of the podcast if you have yet to play the game and wish for your first adventure to be a complete surprise!

Before this wicked time loop took hold of our lives, we had the opportunity to revisit Deception: Murder In Hong Kong (and Robert rants about why he hates being the murderer), watched Star Trek: Beyond, lament the long out-of-print Gears of War board game that we'll never get to play, and briefly check out Yooka-Laylee.

Enjoy!

Episode 11, where we sail away with Rum & Bones: Second Tide.  RB:ST is a standalone, second edition of Cool Mini Or Not's Rum & Bones, and is a 2-6 player game modelled after the ever popular MOBA style of PC games... but with pirates!  We share our thoughts on it - and we have lots! - and definitely plan on revisiting this title again in a future episode down the road, as it's been a contentious one for us.  Our Music With Board Games segment continues with our suggestions based on what we listened to throughout our pirating affairs..

We're once again joined by Joe, who shares with us his experiences in playing Blood Rage (another CMON game!) and Guillotine (a card game from 1998, all about becoming the best guillotine operator you can be).

We also had the fortune of coming across a copy of Witness, the cooperative deduction game based on the Blake & Mortimer IP.  After a solid 8 plays, we're excited to tell as many people as we can to track down a copy, and pine for it to receive another print run.
