It's Episode 22 and this week we're sharing our thoughts on the recent released This War Of Mine, from Michał Oracz, Jakub Wiśniewski and Awaken Realms.  A very different take on what it means to be a war game, This War of Mine has you guiding three regular civilians through the horrors of being trapped in a city under siege, hoping to last long enough to live to see the ceasefire.  It's a heavy theme and an intriguing concept, but at the end of the day the question is the same: is it fun to play?

  We share some initial impressions on recent releases like Richard Garfield's SpyNet, Fantasy Flight Games' Fallout, and Isaac Childres' Gloomhaven.  Note that as the latter two are very fresh, very big games, and very spoiler-sensitive, so we're remaining spoiler-free today, sharing only the briefest of thoughts before sinking more time into them in order to devote a fuller episode to each at a later date.

  Other preambles include thoughts on the recent Thor: Ragnarok movie, Black Mirror, Don't Starve Together, and, of course, League of Legends.

  Thanks for listening!
