Note: We recorded in a room with a lot of echo, thus you'll notice that in the recording. Not much we could do about it, sorry!
Tom, Eric, Sam, Zee, and more join together to talk about some interesting games we saw at the Spiel Fair at Essen. We then do a rousing game of Stronghold vs. Iello Family Feud, then answer some questions live.
Thanks to IELLO for sponsoring the room!
