Air, Land, and Sea - Played and Reviewed
Sophia joins me for some Air, Land, and Sea gameplay, We discuss how the game is played and give our thoughts on it. We also did an in depth review on our website: Mature Minded Gamers Published by Arcane Wonders and Designed by Jon Perry. Air, Land, and  Sea is an excellent fast paced 2 player game, involving lots of strategy  and some luck. You have 3 theaters of war, which are depicted by cards  that you shuffle and place down in between the 2 players. These are  obviously, Air, Land, and Sea. Then you shuffle the 1st and 2nd player  cards and pass them out, this determines who goes first and how scoring  will be done at the end of the round. The final step is giving 6 battle  cards to each player, and boom setup is complete and you are all ready  to begin.

Mission Red Planet - Board Game Review
Will, Brad, and Eric talk about and review Mission Red Planet the Board game from Fantasy Flight games.  Game  Description: With technology rapidly developing and the human population growing,  Victorian-era Earth is in dire need of fuel, land, and other natural  resources. Fortunately, automated probes sent to Mars have discovered  celerium, an ore that can be combusted to produce ten thousand times  more power than a steam engine, and sylvanite, the densest substance  ever found. More incredibly, the probes found ice that could be used in  terraforming the planet, bringing the idea of colonizing Mars even  closer to becoming a reality. As the head of a mining corporation, these minerals and ice found on  Mars could make you unfathomably wealthy – if you can reach them before  your competitors. You have ten rounds to send your astronauts into  space, occupy the planet's most resource-rich zones, and harvest as much  celerium, sylvanite, and ice as possible. At your command is a team of  nine professionals. Each has a unique skill set, from helping your  astronauts traverse the Red Planet to blowing up spaceships before they  launch. #10days10cards  #boardgames  #boardgame  #boardgamegeek  #bgg   #analoggames  #analoggaming  #tabletop  #tabletopgames  #tabletopgaming   #jeuxdesociete  #juegodemesa  #brettspiel  #missionredplanet   #fantasyflightgames  #areacontrol  #brunofaidutti  #brunocathala   #ethnos  #GalileanMoons  #fantasyworkhouse  #cmon  #coolminiornot   #gameofthenight  #bggcommunity  #boardgamenight  #boardgaming   #cosmiccolonies  #boardgamespotlight  #bgspotlight
