It is late October so we thought it would be a good time to revisit the topic of great games for the spooky season. We follow that up with two unrelated reviews, The Castle Panic Big Box Second Edition from Fireside Games and the new Cryptex from Escape Welt. We wrap up talking about a bunch of card games we played at a local gaming event.
This is an edited version of our live show first recorded on 18/10/2023.
