Ep 169: Oil and Water Don’t Mix

Unless you have an emulsifier like an egg or something, and then you can get them to combine. But that has nothing to do with this game, it's just what you get when Kiwi is going to hear it for the first time when it publishes just like all the other fans out there! This week, Kait and Eric and maybe others (who knows) are play The Spill by Andy Kim and published by Smirk & Dagger Games in 2022.
