If you like tabletop games and you’re looking for an in-depth review of the latest and greatest offerings, you’ll love the Dice Section podcast. Hosts Michael Harrison, Dave Kirby, and Geoff Morochnick spend a whole month playing a single game over and over again, probably more than is healthy, and then record their thoughts on how it held up. It’s not a shallow overview… it’s a deep and gory Dice Section.
In this episode, the guys head back to prehistoric times with Stone Age from Hans Im Glück and Rio Grande Games. Theme aside (cavemen, huts, etc.), this game isn’t exactly bleeding edge. Published nearly a decade ago when the hobby board game market was a very different place, somehow it escaped both Dave’s and Michael’s attentions. Advantage: Geoff.
Lesson of the week? If this hut’s a-rockin’, don’t come a-knockin’.
Also, big thanks to Minion Games and their worker placement game Manhattan Project: Energy Empire for sponsoring this week’s show. Hit up their site to check out what Rahdo Runs Through calls the “number one engine builder of all time”.
