This week's hosts: Liam, Eoin, Icecream, Humbug

The Kickstarter Tree has been bearing fruit in the shape of boardgames all through 2014, and Adventurer Eoin Burke has been busily at harvest. This week, we review one of the games that he got in 2014 – Xia: Legends of a Drift System.

Show notes:

0.14: That's not how we pronounce “Xia” during the episode, but I looked up a tutorial video for the game that is narrated by Cody Miller, the guy who designed it, and this is how he pronounces it. 

1.12: Quote of the Episode: “...three weeks late, which in Kickstarter terms is about two months early”

4.19: Elite!

5.33: I can't give it Quote of the Episode because it's not really words, but Brian's nearly orgasmic moan in the background when Eoin says “Sector hexes” is a wonderful thing.

5.56: Here's Brian playing the tetris mini-game with his ship card.

12.54: A nice picture of the gameboard with a few tiles out and a few ships on it.

16.26: SUPER MEAT BOOOOOOOY!

17.25: And not just physically. Eoin's quite fit, he'd probably catch up with you.

20.38: OH MY GOD THE CREDIT CHIPS ARE MADE OF METAL

20.57: Actually just the one video. It's to give you an idea of how nice the ship models are.

33.49: Liam ws right the first time – it is the Great Material Continuum.
