Ep 36: The Grand Ol’ Game-pry

We all met up in Nashville and played a ton of games!  In our hotel we played Fire in the Library from Tony Miller and John Prather and published by Weird Giraffe Games, The Sherlock Files by Marti Lucas and Josep Izquierdo and published by Indie Boards & Cards, For Sale by Steffan Dorra published by Eagle Gryphon Games, and Tussie Mussie by Elizabeth Hargrave and published by Button Shy Games.  We then traveled out to ... where we played Magic Maze by Kasper Lapp from Sit Down!, Formulae D by Laurent Lavaur and Eric Randall from Asmodee, and we finished up with Flamme Rouge by Asger Hardin Granerud from Stronghold!  And to think ... after all that we still went out to a hockey game too!
