Show #14: Dracula-For-Two, and Race For the Galaxy

Our Dusty Old Box segment features a blast from the past --Mark catapults Jeff back to junior high school days with this one. Mark then polishes-off the Dusty segment --not with a box, but with a...thing...a...Dusty Old Thing.

Once Jeff recovers from his temporal shift, we dig into our main topics. Unlike our typical main segments, in which one of us presents a game we know well and love, we thought it would be a fun change of pace to present two games that were totally brand-new to BOTH of us. Jeff starts us off by covering the game Dracula, a two-player game that is part of the Kosmos "Games For Two" series. Afterwards, Mark covers his most recently-acquired card game: Rio Grande's Race For the Galaxy.

Before signing off, Jeff brings up a "did ya ever notice?" observation about games involving a lot of dice rolling, and after some brief banter, Mark and Jeff ask for some assistance and/or guidance for YOU, our beloved Podcast Nation.

  • Great show! Race for the Galaxy is one of my favorites, but I've never played Dracula. The iconography in Race takes a few games, but then it's wonderful.
