The Grizzled

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the beautiful and unique co-op board game The Grizzled. It's deeply thematic, expresses the horror and camaraderie of war, and isn't about winning war: just surviving it. In the news, the Stanley Cup playoffs continue, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe comes unlocked, G2A did an ill-advised panel, Fig funds a spiritual successor to the original X-Com franchise, and Super Bomberman R drops resolution to increase framerate.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, bringing to fruition many of the core ideas Miyamoto envisioned when Zelda 1 was being designed. We could talk forever about this game, so we stick to a core review (TL;DL: buy it). We'll be talking more about this game in the future. In the news, Mad Catz shuts down, grenade bugs plague competitive Counter-Strike, and GeekNights will be Live at Zenkaikon!

America: A Party Game Where Close Counts

Tonight on GeekNights, defying all expectations of our taste in games, we review a trivia game called America, itself a reimplementation of Friedemann Friese's Fauna. It's mechanically fantastic, and got way more table time than you'd expect at PAX. In the news, Rym is playing Counter-Strike again, but they changed the gun sounds and also changed the gun sounds. StarCraft is coming back remastered and also free.

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!

Raptor

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the lovely little two player asymmetric Raptor. It's clever. In the news, Zelda: Breath of the Wild will have DLC, PewDiePie is as bad as you assumed he was, and Rym is obsessed with Overwatch's CTF arcade mode.

Potion Explosion

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Potion Explosion. It's from 2015, it has an excellent conceit, but it really only shines as a kids/family game. It even has an expansion. We're back from PAX South, which is a full and proper PAX! Air Hockey was finally the Omegathon Finale! PAX Unplugged becomes the fifth PAX in PA, though it's the same weekend as the anime con to save anime cons (Anime NYC): we may have to split our efforts between them.
