For our acquisition disorders this week, Anthony looks at Dwellings of Eldervale and Chris looks at Yggradisil Chronicles.

At the table, Anthony reviews two games – Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell: A Board Game of English Magic and Q.E.

Finally, for our feature, we look at six games that you can get for less than $30 in our budget segment.
