Podcast #115: Post-Gen Con games! Freelancers, Search for Lost Species, Robot Quest Arena + more

We made a tiny dent in our mountain of Gen Con games -- and live to tell you about it.

Hosting this podcast isn't all just fun and games...no, wait, it actually is! We've got three big-box games and three small-box games to report back on, thanks to media copies provided by their publishers.

Check out this episode for our impressions of a hilarious adventure game where monsters thrive in a human-less world, a deckbuilding game with cute robots smashing each other, the sequel to our favorite logic-deduction game, a roll-and-write version of Tetris, and two party games (one involving literal junk and the other guessing your friends' D&D-style alignments).
