Episode 42: Keep or Cull

In Episode 42 of Cards and Cubes, we talk about our experience playing the card games Custom Heroes and Trickster: Champions of Time. Then we go into a discussion about Tyrants of the Underdark, Dice Town, and some comments about our first steps into Etherfields.

Our topic today is “Keep or Cull” – a discussion about our decisions and habits involved in acquiring, collecting, and ultimately getting rid of board games.

Games on the horizon this week include Tiny Turbo Cards, Fjords, Royal Visit, L.L.A.M.A., Everdell: Newleaf, Mistwood, and The Complete Collection, and Venice.
