In our eighty-first episode, we talk about what caught our attention on the first day of Gen Con and what we’ve been playing recently. We also review the cooperative settler destruction game Spirit Island. Then we take a break from talking about tabletop games in another Geek Culture segment as we talk about our favourite video games, as we prepare for PAX West 2017.
