Draft Mechanic Episode #19: Viticulture on tap, Quadropolis, TableTop Day, Barrel Aging Beers
International TableTop Day is in the rear view mirror, and what a day it was! Over the weekend we played a ton and we want to tell you all about it. Two player, three player, four player and more - social games, tile games, magic games, city games, card games, games, games, GAMES! Phew. BREATHE. Ok. We also do a review of Quadropolis - let’s call it a four-pack rather than a six-pack review. Our on-tap game today is Stonemaier Games’ debut Viticulture and we pick four great beers that make use of wine and wine ingredients during the brewing process. TableTop Day, man, what a rush - so sit back, relax, grab a pint and enjoy the show!
