In this peppy and positive episode of the Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast, Tom and Quinns are talking about the first set of games they’ve played this year; a triple-bill of Ginkgopolis, The Wolves, and The Search For Lost Species! Our intrepid hosts struggle to pronounce the name of the first game, struggle to comprehend the strategy of the second, and just plain struggle with the third. Enjoy!
I’m kind of surprised they struggled so much with The Search for Lost Species. I actually did some playtesting of this when they were working on the prototype for it with two friends who also liked Search for Planet X and yes, it’s a little bit more complicated than its predecessor, but all three of us were close to finding the lost species in the two games we played, it just came down to which of the three of us found it first. Obviously the logic rules are different from Planet X (and maybe they were playing with a particularly hard animal - I don’t remember which ones we played with) but it all felt very comparable.
