Draft Mechanic Episode 24: The HYPE Episode! Gen Con 2016 Watch List; Among the Stars on tap; Rocky Road a la Mode
Sound the alarm! Get Con is on the horizon! Today, we take a look at the Gen Con releases we’re most excited about. There’s more and more every year - and 2016 is shaping up to be a huge year with some big blockbusters! We also discuss the new Green Couch Games title Rocky Road a la Mode which is on Kickstarter right now! Jake also talks about his experiences with the new Star Trek: Frontiers, a re-working of Mage Knight into the Trek universe. Our on-tap game this episode is Among the Stars, with four beer pairings that are certainly out of this world. But what if you want to drink a beer when you’re actually out of this world? We found a brewery in Australia that is looking to brew the first beer certified to go into space! Alright, grab your pen and paper, get ready to get hyped - it’s game time!
