In Episode 90 of the WiscoDice podcast, the hosts discuss their pet peeves with tabletop gaming and provide tips to mitigated them. They also discuss games they’ve been playing and The Stark Raving Mad One provides an update on his hobby painting.

In the end, i managed my first win in this game, with my strategy of focusing on my career card. Consey worked hard to push the influence track and completed many battles. While it looked like he had locked the victory early on, it just didn’t pan out with end game scoring.

I don’t know if there is a right answer, but I am fortunate that my wife Suzanne loves playing games. We spent our Halloween weekend of 2020 playing several board games while the kids trick or treated.
