099 - Just as Miserable as You Remember - Week of 2/7/18

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of some of our favorite board games. We've got some old games, some new games, and some not-particularly-board games that we've enjoyed past and present. And as always, our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
100 Years of Horror series - almost done; Monsters From The Vault - a book along the same vein, very interesting reviews of old horror flicks
Nemo: The Roses of Berlin, Codename: Knockout, The Adventures of Apocalypse Al, Thor: Ragnarok prelude - good stuff (though the Thor was a little disappointing)
X-Men: Children of the Atom Epic Collection - including a notable editing slip, probably from the original run

Big thanks to Danny for the topic suggestion :-)

[Note: Les is right; the game preceded the first Dark Tower book by a year. Also, here's the YouTube copy of the TV spot for it. -m]
