84 – The Family Gamers Podcast – Favorite Games for Two Players
We’re revisiting the topic of two player gaming. Plus, two items of news that will affect board gamers across the United States.
What we’ve been playing:
The Grimm Forest
Video games: Claire finally beat The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and has started playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – and is LOVING it. (She has 3 horses now, and named each of them “Epona”.)
One last thing we did, not a game: We visited the New Hampshire Ice Castles. It was cool.
Mayfair Games is closing. They have sold the rights to all their games to Asmodee North America.
Barnes & Noble laying off lots of people, even apart from store closings. Beginning of the end?
