271 – 2021 PAX Unplugged Interviews – The Family Gamers Podcast

Andrew just got back from PAX Unplugged, and we’ve got a show for you!

Fact: The first recorded use of a magnetic compass was around 271 CE (during or just after the Han Dynasty) in China.

Thanks again to our sponsor, First Move Financial, for tips on how to make Christmas less about “stuff”.

SNAP Review – Kim-Joy’s Magic Bakery

Andrew & Anitra review this magical, whimsical, cooperative baking game. Watch the video or read the transcript.

PAX Unplugged Interviews

Pandasaurus with Danni

Skull Canyon: Ski Fest (coming this spring)

The LOOP – cooperative strategy. Keep the evil Dr. Faux from messing up the timeline!

That Time You Killed Me – another time machine game, inspired by 3D chess.

SlugFest Games with Jeff

Dungeon Decorators – design an evil lair with tile drafting

Czech Games Edition (CGE) with Nathan

Galaxy Trucker – new edition is more accessible for all ages. Now with a 3-sided board!

Under Falling Skies – like the classic video game Space Invaders. A mothership is spawning lots of small ships that come down towards you. Knock out the alien ships and keep powering up. Solo or cooperative.

KOSMOS with Tom

Adventures of Robin Hood (our review)

Ubongo 3D (our review)

The Crew: Mission Deep Sea – very much like The Crew: The Quest for Planet Nine, but the missions get more specific (instead of needing a number, needing to win the last trick of the hand).

Anno 1800

Lost Cities: Roll and Write

Gamewright with Nora

Word Heist – “a game of lifted letters”; a word game that seems accessible for kids.
