#53: Dice Forge / Pit Crew

Draft Mechanic Episode #53: Dice Forge review, Pit Crew on tap, Terraforming Mars: Hellas, Wordsy, Word Domination, MegaMooseCon con report, what is a Foeder?

CORRECTION: Jake and I for some reason both thought the Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium map was $30 MSRP and we made a big deal of the fact that that was a lot. WELL turns out it's $20 MSRP which feels much more reasonable, especially when you look at that possibly being reduced if you buy it online (although Amazon does have it up at $26 plus $11 shipping so maybe don't preorder it there.)
