    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!
