Three Kingdoms Redux is currently the 2156th ranked game on Board Game Geek. It's a game we've been playing this month, one that's been on our radar for quite a while, and in this episode we're going to do our longest single game review telling you why that ranking is approximately 2150 places off.
Also, we've discovered another fine game about to hit Kickstarter, World's Fair 1893. This one has demanded to be on our table more than we expected, and we could see it garnering some silverware in 2016.
Add to this a bottle of Whisky and a handful of light games played just before recording and you have our longest episode yet (On a side note, we plan to reverse this length trend as we slouch on toward episode 100).

Someone recently commented that our podcasts are almost as long as Wagner's operas. Well, seeing as we take that as a challenge, this one's epic! Sweeping! Cinematic! In 70 mm Technicolor!
After some short reviews and music talk, and spin-offs of Eric's "When Things Went Bad" segments, we launch into our annual Essen preview. These are the games we're hoping will take some money out of our pockets. Do we play it safe? Can we find something unique, something off the radar? And how many of these games will even be available to us?
Gotta say, this is a long one, but I sure enjoyed the listen while editing.
