    72 - The Ancient World's Call To Adventure

    72 - The Ancient World's Call To Adventure

    This week Tristan, Leki, Daz and Sam get together to play The Ancient World and Call to Adventure but talk about them in the opposite order.

    Call to Adventure is a card based fantasy game from Johnny O'Neale and Christopher O'Neale that challenges each player to evolve a character by completing several challenges and each challenge succeeds or fails by rolling runes.

    The Ancient World is a worker placement/civ builder game from veteran games designer and illustrator extraordinaire Ryan Laukat. Each player must build up a civilisation under the constant threat of attack from mythical Titans who are poised to destroy all that you've built. We played the 1st edition game with the 2nd edition component upgrade. Does this mean we played the 2nd edition game? We think so.

    Have you raised a banner for The Ancient World 2nd edition or are you a 1st edition connoisseur? Let us know your thoughts by posting on the BoardChitless Facebook group:

Mesterio Mann ,

Excellent Podcast

In-depth reviews from a player’s perspective on a variety of board and card games. Their reviews are provided via a play-through analysis recorded immediately after playing that week’s game. Often funny, always insightful, these are the types of gamers I would love to sit down at the table with on game night. Unfortunately, I can’t afford to fly to Britain on a weekly basis, so that’s a no-go. I have one minor quibble. On occasion there are three (or more?) individuals on the podcast and, at times, I find it difficult to hear some of the comments being made because the audio levels (or speaking volumes) differ by individual. Tristan is a bit of a boomer (I really enjoy 1066 btw), while another guy, Sam I think, has things to say but I’m not really sure because his comments sound like whispers. Due to this, I find myself turning the volume up and down throughout the podcast trying to keep the audio levels even. I am happy to do this, though, because Chitless is a top-notch podcast. Highly recommended!
