The world is upside down as we start another episode with our recent plays. Before things get too heated, we also review Twixt, a classic abstract that will appeal to particularly few people, but still offers a great game experience. Finally, we dive into a messy discussion topic that gets a little heated: are great games infinitely replayable? Should we look for games that offer a lot of replayability? Should we expect our favorite games to always stay fresh? As you might expect, Tim and I reach different conclusions! Show notes after the break.
