The Root Winter Tournament has been going on since November of 2021, and it finally has a Championship match in sight. To celebrate and prepare you all to go check out that game, we brought on Guerric and Lily to walk us through how the tournament has gone so far and what Root even looks like these days! Turns out the game keeps getting smarter and smarter, leaving Matt and Hunter in the dust. Looks like we'll have to become the Beavis and Butthead of Root...

We wanted to get nostalgic and talk about how far we've come. What was going to be a general overview decided to get more narrow. So today, we're talking about the history of 3rd Edition and how it improved on what came before but also paved the path for 4th Edition. We'd love to give the same treatment going forward to 2nd and 1st edition, so consider this the start of a mini-series we'll return to over time!

The kind of content we design for newer players changes over time, and this particular episode is probably a long time overdue. As the community has grown and analysis has solidified, a lot of terms have started to stick in place. Some of them are logical expressions of ideas, some of them or horrible tangentially related jokes about a concept. None of this makes it any easier for a newcomer, so it's finally time we put together a proper glossary of these terms.

We're continuing our investigation of the Vuil'raith Cabal, and today seemed like a good chance to do a progress report. We come to you not with highly analyzed takeaways, but instead a handful of notes and anecdotes that we're gradually using to build a case for Cabal. Think of this like us "showing our work" when it comes to experimenting with factions.

Wowee, what a treat. Our dearest friend and board game designer Dane is here to present the upcoming release of Codex 3: Vigil! There's a slew of new things packed in it, most notably an ENTIRE NEW FACTION. We cover it all in some broad strokes, and reveal a few specific components. This is slated to drop later in April, which we had too much fun while recording to remember to mention. GET HYPE!

This is a Galactic Council episode. I repeat, this is a Galactic Council episode. There are many, many places out there where you can get this kind of content, but today you're stuck with these two idiots. I would say that no one asked for this, but turns out a sizable enough percentage of patrons did, so here we are. Here's some top 10 lists from two guys who have not played nearly enough board games for you to take their opinions very seriously.
