During this, our first Patreon supported bonus episode, we explore the untold “backstories” of many of the hobby’s most popular games. Each of the Pegs pick a game and tell the beginning of a ridiculous and entirely fictitious story about the events that inspired the creation of four favorite board games. The other Pegs then pick up the thread and improvise the remainder of the story.
During this week’s episode, the guys do a deep, deep dive into the events that transpired during 4+ days of gaming in the Virginia woods, RobbCon 2017. A slew of guys, a literal ton of games, gallons of drinks, infinite chaos, and a heap of the plague thrown in for good measure. We review more games then we have ever reviewed in any prior episode, including Anachrony, Railroad Revolution, Nippon, Vast: The Crystal Caverns, The Great Zimbabwe, The Colonists, The Gallerist, Mythothopia, Ethnos, and many, many more.
