313 – Essen Post-Mortem!
It’s an odd numbered show and Andrew is our guest (hah!) We’re going to talk about his very first Essen Spiel experience.
313 fact – Eris is one of the largest dwarf planets in the solar system, slightly larger than Pluto, but farther away. It was originally designated 2003 UB313.

SNAP Review – Delicious
Plant the most efficient garden in this roll-and-write (ok, flip-and-draw) game. You can even play over video chat!
Watch the video (where we introduce our veggie-loving cat), or read the transcript, on the SNAP review page.
Andrew describes traveling in Germany, jet-lag, and the sheer SIZE of the Essen Spiel.
Throwing axes? wow!
The presence of certain publishers is very different in Germany than in the US (Amigo, HABA, etc.)
Food: spiral potato (“like a giant curly fry”), currywurst
Buying games: far more cash-driven than expected.
