Shelley and I report back on two fantastic Hisashi Hayashi games we were fortunate enough to play at Meeplefest (thanks Lorna and Joe!). They made a brief appearance on BGG's store at the beginning of August (maybe you picked up copies), but are worth hunting down (or picking up to publish if you're a publisher!!!).

We thought we were done on that first Friday night, but right after pushing STOP on the recorder, Denis decided he needed to delve into other issues and started another 1/2 hour of discussion and ranting (wine helps!)

I hope you enjoy this bonus episode with the microphones picking up the ambient discussions around the table.
