Episode 97 - The Impression That I Get

January 30, 2020

Ambie and Crystal discuss a couple games they've played recently, including City of the Big Shoulders and Fantastic Factories. We then talk about how important first impressions of a board game can be. In this week's "Board Game Etymology" segment, Crystal discusses the origins of the word "opinion."

City of the Big Shoulders Impressions

January 21, 2020

by Ambie Valdés
Note: I received a free review copy of City of the Big Shoulders from Parallel Games.

It’s not really a secret that I’m into economic games and 18xx games. When I read the rules to City of the Big Shoulders, an economic game with stock holding, worker placement, and factory production, it sounded a lot like a mix between Arkwright and 18xx to me. Since I love both of those, I was excited to try out City of the Big Shoulders.
