Legend of the Five Rings, Dream On, Top 5 Games Someone Will Hate - Boards & Swords #90

IMG_2304.JPG

We continue experimenting with a few new segments this week - unfortunately I still start the show with jokes.  We then talk about various games like Legend of the Five Rings, Dream On, and Welcome to Walnut Grove.  Our big segment this week is a Top 5 list, but a weird one - games that we are excited for but that we are sure someone else at the table will hate.  Then finally, we mute Collin and Cindy while Philip and I talk RPGs.  Namely, the new Star Trek Adventures RPG.
