    Coimbra

    Coimbra

    Coimbra is a city in Portugal. Or so Google taught me when I had to look up what Coimbra was. Also, we take a few minutes at the start of the episode to discuss our feelings on the Black Lives Matter movement and what we commit to do as a podcast to help people who are systematically disadvantaged. It may not be a perfect message, but we're trying, and if you have something to say to us, please do, we'll listen. If you don't want to hear anything about the situation, you can deal with less than three minutes of it before we review Coimbra.

    Hindsight Reviews: Topiary, Go Nuts for Donuts, Clans of Caledonia

    Chris and Wendy review games that we reviewed from two years ago, Topiary, Planecrafters, Go Nuts for Donuts, and Clans of Caledonia. Some of these games are still played and some haven't been played since we reviewed them. Some have donuts, some have whiskey. We're more knowledgable on donuts than we are on whiskey, so let's see if that affects our views on the games. (Not really.)
