Podcast 167 - Our Favorite Game Mechanics
This week on Dragon’s Demize Greg, Lesley, Hunter and Jakub sit down to talk about their favorite game mechanics. If you want to see the first episode that inspired this one you can go check out our Least Favorite Game Mechanics Here. We talk about a lot of different games and why we like the mechanics when implemented in certain ways and don’t like them in others. Hunter drills down into the games that we may not like using our favorites to get to the root causes.
Also we talk about when Greg and Jakub sat down to play some Star Crossed on stream, Hunter’s game of This War of Mine, the deduction and decisions in Greg’s plays of the Donner Party, and how learning the history of Castles of Mad King Ludwig can help people enjoy the game.
