If you take requests

By Methos - Posted on 20 March 2008

I just started listening to the show and think it's great. I just wanted to throw some requests out there for future game possibilities: Warrior Knights Clue - The Great Museum Caper Ubongo Omega Virus Dune Descent: Journey in the Dark Age of Empire III: Age of discovery Race for the Galaxy Evil Wizard School: the final lesson Diamonte Hope to hear more soon Methos

Welcome, Methos!

We always welcome requests, so fire away any time. In fact, we do a Listener's Choice episode every year where you all get to pick the games that come off The List as well as the Back Shelf Spotlight, etc. We certainly don't limit requests to that one show, though.

Your current list of suggestions looks great. As a matter of fact, we can actually cross a few of those off already! We played Incan Gold, the new re-release of Diamant in Episode 30 and the Omega Virus was covered in the Back Shelf Spotlight on Episode 27.

**Originally posted by silk** Your review about Age of Gods reminded me on Gheos. While it is clearly different than Age of Gods, the themes are similar. I picked it up in Essen 2006 and I like it a lot.
Some shorter games and your opinions that would be nice to hear: (sorry if already done) Diamant Hive Pickomino Winners Circle Manila Wits and Wagers Bang w/Dodge City Liars Dice Qwirkle No Thanks! Hey, That's my Fish Gordon

good suggestions, chezstewart.

So good, in fact, that we've covered several of those games already.

Now this is a good thing, since you can dig into the back catalog of shows now and see what you think of our reviews. Click on the episodes Meeple in the left sidebar for links to all past show notes. We've done: Diamant, Hive, Wits & Wagers, and Qwirkle already and Winner's Circle and LIar's Dice have been featured on Back Shelf Spotlight and The Game Sommelier, too.

Hey That's My Fish is definitely coming off the List sometime this year, so there's one to look forward to as well. :)

   Guys, when you get a chance, I'd really be interested in your opinion of theses two games. I've heard some mediocre things about Hamburgum, and have yet to have the opportunity to play it. Britannia seems similar or along the same lines of Warrior Knights, and there is a copy available at a nearby FLGS. But, I'd really like to hear your thoughts on it first. Thanks, The Provost.

Hamburgum is one that looks especially intriguing to me. From looking at the game boards, our pal Jason noted that it looks like Mac Gerdts, the designer of Hamburgum, uses some similar mechanics to one of his other games, Imperial, which is pretty highly regarded. Only time (and a chance to play) will tell!

We are booked up through the end of the year, but we'll keep it in mind for 2009!
