Air, Land, and Sea - Played and Reviewed
Sophia joins me for some Air, Land, and Sea gameplay, We discuss how the game is played and give our thoughts on it. We also did an in depth review on our website: Mature Minded Gamers
Published by Arcane Wonders and Designed by Jon Perry. Air, Land, and Sea is an excellent fast paced 2 player game, involving lots of strategy and some luck. You have 3 theaters of war, which are depicted by cards that you shuffle and place down in between the 2 players. These are obviously, Air, Land, and Sea. Then you shuffle the 1st and 2nd player cards and pass them out, this determines who goes first and how scoring will be done at the end of the round. The final step is giving 6 battle cards to each player, and boom setup is complete and you are all ready to begin.

Mission Red Planet - Board Game Review
Will, Brad, and Eric talk about and review Mission Red Planet the Board game from Fantasy Flight games.
Game Description: With technology rapidly developing and the human population growing, Victorian-era Earth is in dire need of fuel, land, and other natural resources. Fortunately, automated probes sent to Mars have discovered celerium, an ore that can be combusted to produce ten thousand times more power than a steam engine, and sylvanite, the densest substance ever found. More incredibly, the probes found ice that could be used in terraforming the planet, bringing the idea of colonizing Mars even closer to becoming a reality.
As the head of a mining corporation, these minerals and ice found on Mars could make you unfathomably wealthy – if you can reach them before your competitors. You have ten rounds to send your astronauts into space, occupy the planet's most resource-rich zones, and harvest as much celerium, sylvanite, and ice as possible. At your command is a team of nine professionals. Each has a unique skill set, from helping your astronauts traverse the Red Planet to blowing up spaceships before they launch.
