#236: Dead Reckoning


Replete with a robust menagerie in this episode, we perhaps begin to see why anthropomorphic animals seem to feature in every other game lately. We have Dalmations (plus a cow named Doog trying to impersonate a Dalmation), horsies, goats, weasels and wombats (seldom do we see such an august alliteration!), meeses (not to be confused with mooses), and some needed stinkin’ badgers. Not a great petting zoo, sure–o of limited utility in a game of Ark Nova–but an impressive collection nonetheless.
