Get our your cucumber sandwiches and your doilies, you precious little petunias, because we’re about to get all cultured on you. Some serious sophistication is going down, and we are not entirely certain our hosts are prepared–mentally, spiritually, let alone hygienically.

I need to play Go Nuts for Donuts with higher player count. 3 player was alright.

I remember not being impressed with Trickerion at all.


I’ve only played Trickerion with two players, and as I finished the episode just now, I was thinking… that seems to address a lot of Mark’s complaints.

The result is that I quite enjoy it and it’s one of my favorite games. I can definitely see how it would become less fun the more players you add, though.

I was tempted by this for awhile but held off due to the weight and amount of planning I had heard was required. Based on their review, I made the right choice. That level of planning just doesn’t appeal to me.
Fortunately, their other games don’t seem so heavy in that specific aspect.

On the other hand, I’m even more excited for Endless Winter!!!

I also was really unimpressed with Trickerion. I hope to never play it again. Largely played between the states of finding it boring and annoying.
