Hi, folks.

Episode 217 of The Spiel is now available.

We talk about three trips in this episode:

one physical - a travelogue of our recent trip to Essen,

one fictional - a review of Lord of the Rings: Journey to Mordor,

and one psychological - a review of ...and then we held hands.

The travelogue features segments on the International Game Fair at Essen, driving up a mountain in a Tesla, and a jewelry heist via an escape room.

Lord of the Rings: Journey to Mordor is a light dice game aimed at families with some fun player interaction. Be the first to guide your hobbit and the ring to Mount Doom before the Nazgul.

...and then we held hands is an innovative card driven board game about a couple trying to save their relationship. You play together using cards from both hands to navigate toward the center of the board, trying to stay emotionally balanced. And here's the twist - you cannot talk about the game at all while you play. You dance with and around you parnter trying to anticipate his or her next move, hoping to keep the game from locking up, thus bringing your relationship to an impasse.

You can tune in using the link below or find The Spiel on iTunes or most popular podcast directories.

Thanks for listening! Spiel on!
