Board Games & Tabletop: Pawel has insisted on having his annual RPG slot, so we let him talk about the latest edition of Legend of the Five Rings by Fantasy Flight for a good chunk. Next up is the proper gaming section for proper people, where we enjoy the new deckbuilder Hand of Fate: Ordeals by Hand & Make, which is based on the video game of playing a deadly game of card-based adventure against the Dealer. Finally, Chris and Euan have gone back to a classic as they introduced a new board gamer to the archaeological fun that is Thebes by Queen Games, with its interesting time-spending mechanic. Gotta dig up the dirt! Enjoy!

Alchemists brings out Chris' inner lab technician while Airlines Europe reveals Pawel to be a cynical capitalist, Euan is moved to become a history lecturer by Thebes: The Tomb Raiders until being sucked into the world of Factorio. We also return to Tom Clancy's The Division with a less enthusiastic take from Chris who is also trying to escape from jail in The Escapists and terrify Pawel with Who's Your Daddy.
