#15: Catan / Seeland

Draft Mechanic Episode #15: Catan, Seeland, Patchwork App, Mystery Rummy: Jekyll & Hyde, ...and then we held hands, and planning a bottle share

This episode we've got a bunch of recent plays to discuss. We gush about how much we've been loving the new Patchwork app. If apps aren't really your thing then we discuss 2 fillers and a Euro game for you. Mystery Rummy: Jekyll & Hyde is an interesting take on the traditional card game style. ...and then we held hands makes us really get in touch with our emotions. So much so that we channel our inner mill owners and reclaim Holland in Seeland. We put a classic, Catan, on tap. Finally, we discuss the makings of an excellent bottle share.
