For this episode, we hearken back to Episode 39 of our show, where we previewed some games that were featured at Origins 2017. Anthony and Jason take a new look at games like The Lost Expedition, Caverna: Cave vs. Cave, Sword & Sorcery, and others. Most of our previewed games really delivered! Others… not so much.
We then talk about games we are looking forward to at Origins 2018, including The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Archmage, and Fleet: The Dice Game. Along with this episode, we are also giving you a separate Preview Series episode talking with Rory O’Connor about Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr from Hub Games. It will be available as a demo at this year’s Origins show.
Finally, Anthony will be at Origins. If you see him walking around, feel free to invite him to play a game!
