The Princes of Florence

Tonight on GeekNights we review the old Alea Big Box game The Princes of Florence. In the news, after we talk about xenon lightbulbs, River City Ransom: Underground has finally come out and a member of the Swedish parliament is livestreaming Hearthstone (itself seeing big changes).

We'll be live at PAX East, Rym is in London the rest of this week, the GeekNights Patreon continues, and we're trying to get all of our tabletop reviews on youtube!

Fuji Flush and Foppen

Tonight on GeekNights, we review two Friedemann Friese games we played at MAGFest: Fuji Flush and Foppen. Fun fact: Fuji Flush fixes Doppelt und Dreifach! MAGFest was great, as always! In the news, Nintendo Switch comes, AGDQ came, AGDQ's (correct) banning of Trump Hat Guy, boot disks return with Windows Game Mode, and the most toxic League of Legends player in the world.

We'll be live at PAX South on Friday afternoon with Grind Mechanics in Games!

Patchwork

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Uwe Rosenberg's Patchwork. It's a cute, quick-to-learn two player game, in the realm of Morels or Lost Cities. Worth adding to your collection. In the news, I hope you voted, Blizzard makes serious moves into professionalizing esports, and all the Blizzard stuff happened simultaneous to all the Netrunner stuff and all the PAX Aus stuff: big week(end) for gaming news!

Deep Sea Adventure: Pressing One's Luck

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider some press your luck mechanics with the wonderful Deep Sea Adventure. It's a shared space treasure-hunting drowning simulator. In other news, Rym keeps playing Overwatch daily, Scott hates all that is good in the world, and the gold rush of pro sports buying esports teams begins.
