Heavy Cardboard Episode 36 – Neue Heimat

Neue Heimat. Gesundheit! This wicked little auction game is the primary topic of discussion. We love auction games here at Heavy Cardboard, and if you do too, check this one out. Also, we talk a little about Ships, the new Martin Wallace release. Macao, and older Feld design is yet another topic of discussion.

Sound quality comes and goes during parts of the first half of this episode as we had some technical issues when recording – however we sorted it out and the rest of the episode is good. Sorry about that!

Here is a link to a compilation of Neue Heimat house rules/variants.

Heavy Cardboard Episode 35 – Food Chain Magnate

Food Chain Magnate. Joris and Jeroen talked about it during our interview. We got hyped up for the game. Finally, it arrived. Finally, we played it. Did it live up to the hype? Give a listen and find out.

Also, we have a series of short discussions on the Essen games we have had a chance to play so far. Honestly, it’s been a mixed bag, but that’s to be expected. What do you guys think? What Essen games have you played?
