Today's episode of Dragon's Demize is all about mad science, with a review of Get Me a Fresh Brain! In this game, designed by Sean Scott Garrity and published by Baksha Games, 2-6 players race to build a monster that will destroy the town! Players control Doctors, who earn money, and Assistants, who buy various fresh (or not so fresh) body parts for use in creating the monsters. Once a monster has been created, it's a mad dash to see who can destroy a majority of the buildings in town. For our full thoughts on Get Me a Fresh Brain! check out the podcast.

To the skies! Or at least that's where our birds will go when we review Wingspan, the bird watching game that has taken the board gaming world by storm. Winsgpan is a Euro-style game for one to five players, designed by Elizabeth Hargrave and published by Stonemaier Games. Players compete to earn the most points by playing valuable birds, laying the most eggs, and securing special objectives. Each bird played also increases the potency of one of your core actions, but you get fewer acctions to use each round. It's a delicate balancing act, and one that we think really works.
