Chris is gone this week, so Tom and Alana dive into three games the years of 2015 and 2016 that Dog and Thimble didn't manage to cover back then, Dice City, Santorini, and Bring Your Own Book. Plus, Alana has some facts about toads and bees and we name some bird comedians.
Is this the raunchiest episode of Dog and Thimble yet? Probably not, but among the discussion of Spynet, Sentient, and Heroes Wanted, the Dog and Thimble crew does get distracted by the question of how some sexual euphemisms came to be, so at least there's that. Plus, Tom knows how "Winston Drafting" got its name, Alana admits she has a problem, and can we really afford to buy George Washington's soul?
Some days we talk about board games, some days we discuss the Combos Twitter feed, and some days we do both. In this episode of the Dog and Thimble podcast you better believe we're doing both. We're talking about the incredible 2017 game, Sagrada, and spoiler alert we all love it.
Also in this episode, Alana promises baked goods, Chris gets poetic about who Sagrada is for, and Tom doesn't remember how to start an episode.
It's the return of everyone's favorite hard-biking, anarcho-punk, vegan biker mice, Siouxsie and the Ban-cheese. That's right, Dog and Thimble is back to continue the story of Siouxsie Squeaker, Granny Greaser, and Francis in the excellent Heavy Metal Thunder Mice RPG. Rev up your engines because it's about to pop off!
Remember, this is part two, so check out part one to catch up!
In what we can only assume is a first for any board game podcast, the hosts spend a solid 6 minutes discussing Lou Bega's Mambo No. 5. Don't worry though, we also made sure to spend some time discussing the intense real-time tabletop game Paramedics Clear! Did we love it? Did we hate it? Will it solve your relationship problems? There's only one way to find out!
