ENGN 171 – Best in Class for Thematic Adventure, and Ten Underrated Thematic Games with Corey Mayo

Jason is happy to welcome a long-time listener, first-time caller Corey Mayo to the pod! He is very, very well known among solo gamers who frequent BGG or Facebook, as he always has something to say about the games of the day.

In this episode, we talk about Corey’s favorite genre – thematic adventure games. We get into our working definition of thematic adventure and debate whether many people’s number one solo game of all time, Mage Knight, falls into that definition. Corey then shows some love to some underrated games, with Jason in the peanut gallery sharing about a few more.
