    In this show, Tom is joined by Jeremy Howard as Eric is away. We talk about Paris, Almanac, and Whistle Mountain. Geoff brings some insight that's for the birds and we dive into a slew of questions. Do we get Kickstarter regret? Are there any one-vs-many games that play well with two players? How do we deal with someone who is attached to their phone during a game day? And more! Finally, we end the show talking about our favorite hybrid games - games that combine two or more mechanics.
