#16: Paradox / The Bloody Inn

Draft Mechanic Episode 16: Paradox six-pack review; The Bloody Inn on tap; Spring Beer Roundup

Welcome back, listeners! Today we’ve got a heaping space spoonful of timeline meddling with Split Second Games’ new release “Paradox.” We also talk about some recent games that have hit Kickstarter and some games we played at our monthly open gaming night at Salud Beer Shop in Charlotte. On tap today we have last year’s “The Bloody Inn” with four great thematic beers. Finally, it’s spring now, so we’ve included a brief roundup of some great spring seasonals you can get your hands on now!
