Bannings, the shape of RIX drafts, RIX effects on standard…what a time to be alive! We also throw in the usual busta-boosta, AMAZING listener questions, quizzes, flavours, neets, premonitions, garbage. It’s all in the jungle, in the jungle, whacka whacka, whacka, knees, knees.
It’s time to stick tiny coloured porcelain bits to the walls of your Portuguese palace…don’t have a palace, don’t sweat it. Michael Kiesling has you covered with his hit board game, Azul. Aaron’s back on the board game podcast with Matt and David. Much geek discussion occurs, a Matt’s quiz (which is half-decent), and an Aaron’s Top Ten (Twenty). Much of the show becomes a discussion of board games across the ages. Something for everyone in this month’s show.
We announce the winner of Photosynthesis, plus everything you need to get hold of your copy of Azul.
RIX Tricks in the Mix (unofficially) brought to you by Twix. In the excitement leading up to the ‘Rivals of Ixalan’ pre-release weekend, Anthony Lee joins the pod to answer your questions. He also discusses some RIX strategies with Aaron as everyone gets ready for this weekend’s sealed event. There’s an unmissable MTG Card Quiz, Flavour Text, and we bust our first Rivals booster…that a lucky listener then wins!!
It’s the 5th Annual 7LandHand Beer and Pizza Show. This year, LIVE from Good Games Cannington. We reflect on the year that was (2017) with thirty of our closest gaming friends. Discussion includes: MTG Sets from 2017, Essen board game recommendations for 2018, and we even check in with the Mirror Online to see what garbage board game recommendations they made for Christmas presents. Kai does forty-seconds of 40k LIVE…and Matt baffles everyone with a series of questions he called Matt’s Quiz.
Lots of beer, lots of pizza, lots of laughs.
Happy New Year, everyone.
We’re wearing Firs as we Maple some ‘Sick Amores.’ Trees, Light…chlorophyll, it’s time to photosynthesise. It’s the most beautiful game created, which we then litter with a Matt’s quiz. Jaime stretches a Photosynthesising Top Ten to include synthetic beings (much better), and we announce the winner of last month’s GOTM: Queendomino.
You are the sunshine of my life…
The domino and the butterfly effects describe pretty much the same idea, but we’ve never heard of a game called QueenButterfly…so, in this episode, we review Blue Orange Games’ Queendomino. Don’t stop Bruno now, he’s having such a good time. Matt ruins that, however, with one of his quizzes, there’s Jaime’s Top Ten, Neets and Twooze, and a winner of last month’s give-away, ‘Lovecraft Letter.’
It’s MTG A-Z with Aaron and Zoe. Zoe (from Good Games Cannington) joins us to answer some listener questions, play all the quizzes, and give her take on travelling overseas to play Magic. A lucky listener wins TWO Ixalan boosters. A seven-year-old girl drops by to describe magic cards, and Zoe and Aaron give you their picks for Ixalan hot garbage.
These are the GGMC (Good Games Magic Championship) 2017 finalist interviews. David and Aaron have a chat with each of the finalists after the dust settles on what was a super-exciting series of matches.
Thank you to Manny Lagmay, Wan Chin Lee, Jex Calder, Denby Adams, Marcus Peck, and Chris Sha for joining us in the ‘sound-proof’ booth.
…and a shout out to Amelia Wales who judged the entire event.
You have a cousin in Egypt, and they’re in trouble…sound like Love Letter to you? Of course, it does. Lovecraft Letter reinvents Seiji Kanai’s card deduction classic, and with a new spin, changes the dynamics of this short-game favourite forever. Matt gives us a love letter inspired quiz, and there’s Jaime’s Top Ten. Plus, discount passwords, and the winner of Unearth.
