This episode breaks down this peculiar relationship and seeks to find out how players should behave when faced with their counterpart as a neighbor.

Daddy is away this week, so it’s up to your Show Buddy and Actual Daddy to steer the ship. And what better way than to do a player profile on our favorite guest host: EJ!

The Galactic Council has another great pick for you this month: Promissory Notes. These little things are something we notoriously had trouble analyzing early on in TI4, but now that we’ve had some time to sit with them, we’re starting to feel more confident with how to use them. There’s a LOT of meta-meat on these bones, so it’s not all going to fit in one episode!

After some notes about a recent game with our Good Yin Brotherhood patrons, Matt and Hunter begin to lay out the case for the five games proposed to be our “game #2.” The poll is live now to all of our patrons, and we wanted to make sure people had an adequate understanding of each game so that their vote could be informed. We’re excited to add something alongside Twilight Imperium, we just need help figuring out what that something should be!

The Space Kitties have gotta thirsty. Only blood will quench their thirst. Blood or the tears of podcasters. This week’s episode is brought to you by Space Kitty Yin4Life, who took Hunter on a tortuous journey. The game was 14 points, 4 players, and Hunter was required to play as the Embers of Muaat.
