In a first, Fairway plays two games at once: he reviews the metagame: Face the Consequences.
Not so long ago, Fairway reviewed the game: Ambyria. He and his son have played it a bunch of times since and has made his son’s favorite game they’ve reviewed. Now he’s back with a review of the Starlight & Vengeance expansion.
The world is round. Fairway knows he can prove it and secure the riches of the new world. Or, at least, that’s what he thinks will happen in this preview of Days of Discovery by Matt Worden Games, coming to Kickstarter on June 19th.
In episode 72, I share my thoughts regarding this gorgeous card game, Go Eco. A 2-3 player game (or up to 6 with a second deck of cards), players race to be the first to earn the predetermined amount of game-winning points by collecting cards into their hands which make up ecosystems. A little bit set-collecting, a little bit take-that, and whole bunch of nature. Learn more about Go Eco on the Kickstarter page here!

In episode 74, I’m checking out a game arriving to Kickstarter called The Duel: Point of Honor. In this two-player card game, you and your opponent will engage in combat to be the first to earn seven Prestige. You must balance your timing and attacks to win, let’s see if we’re prepared for The Duel.

In episode 73, I check out a 2-4 player card game called Zombie Road, in which players are running away from zombies, trying to accumulate the miles they need to reach the zombie-free oasis.

The Inquisitive Meeple interviews TIGR writer and game designer, Steven Aramini on his new game, Tricky Tides. Currently, on Kickstarter from Gold Seal Games, Tricky Tides merges tricky taking with pick-up and deliver mechanics.
If you haven’t heard, Fairway is judging a contest at The Game Crafter: The Solo Game Challenge. What better time for him to review a new, solo game from Grey Gnome Games available from The Game Crafter: Desolate.
In episode 68 I take a look at the trick-taking game Dia de los Muertos by Jolly Roger Games and UltraPRO. Beautiful art and interactive mechanics, a two thumbs up from me! The game comes with some awesome goodies also!
“Call me, Fairway.” That’s a paraphrase of the famous first line from Moby Dick. It’s apropos since, in today’s preview, Fairway plays as Captain Ahab (Ishmael) against his white whales in a hunt to the death in Leviathan, a two-player, microgame currently on Kickstarter.
