    Episode 16, where we fend off hordes of alien bugs in XenoShyft: Dreadmire, the new cooperative deck-building game from Michael Shinall & Cool Mini Or Not, and stand-alone expansion to 2015's XenoShyft: Onslaught.  Does it stand steadfast, or will the horde of nit-picking review-creatures leave nothing but rubble in their wake?

    We also had the chance to continue playing some more Watson & Holmes scenarios, carrying off from our previous episode, and share our experiences with some 2- and 3-star scenarios.  Don't worry, there are no spoilers!  Does the increased difficulty enhance the game?

    There seems to be a lot of TV and movie watching lately.  Spoiler-free thoughts on the recent season of Sherlock, the new Wonder Woman film, Snowpiercer..

    For those interested in watching some board game-like television (seriously), we highly recommend checking out two Korean shows:  The Genius & Crime Scene. 

    Thanks for listening!

    Episode 15, where we solve the mystery: is Watson & Holmes a good game or a great game?

    We took our eyes away from the cards and dice recently to watching some shows and movies.  Joe's been watching the Geek & Sundry production, Escape: in which various celebrities are placed in an escape room and the audience gets to watch them struggle in their efforts to... escape!  Judy & Robert saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 and argue over the reds are really as red as they can be.

     Back at the table, we got to play the original, vanilla Zombicide again, and in doing so learned to appreciate the simplicity of playing with [i]only[/i] the kitchen sink.  Naturally, it's only further drumming up our excitement for the Green Horde kickstarter..

    Speaking of CMON kickstarter, Massive Darkness' delivery is right around the corner and Robert is geeking out with anticipation for it.  Meanwhile, Joe just geeks out over their expo in general.  Are we secretly CMON shills?  Time will tell..
