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!

Civilization VI Initial Thoughts

Tonight on GeekNights, we bring our initial thoughts on Civilization VI. In the news, Giant Multiplayer Robot is likely to be able to support Civ VI, Really Bad Chess is really great, and Nintendo Switch cometh (to Scott's interest and Rym's ambivalence). We'll be live at GaymerX East, and also at MAGFest! Check out the GeekNights Patreon, Rym's youtube channel, and Scott's youtube channel!

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.

Captain Sonar

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic Captain Sonar. We're back from PAX West, Rym's back from Utah, and we're ready to return to our regular schedule!

Pokemon GO enables the lollipop farm even as the player base walks away.

Games Scott Isn't Playing

Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about games Scott isn't playing (since it's not gaming season for him), some thoughts on building a new gaming PC (both HT and regular), and the fallout of a Google Wallet argument from MAGFest. Pac-Man CE2 is coming, which may get Scott to game again. All of Nintendo Power is online for your enjoyment (including the most important issue ever).

Pokemon Go: Initial Thoughts

Tonight on GeekNights, we make our triumphant (albeit coughing) return from running the panels department at ConnectiCon and catching the plague to talk about Pokemon Go!. Lots of updates to come as we ramp production back up, including on the GeekNights Patreon! In the news, Videoball is finally out, and Overwatch had a substantial update that generated a lot of heated discussion.
