Josh also talked about 2Player Game Day! It's when you set a gaming day aside to play those two player games you don't always get play since you're in a bigger group. 


They recommend:  


Star Wars Rebellion by Fantasy Flight Games 

The Empire failed to root out the rebel base in our play of #starwarsrebellion by @fantasyflightgames This game of cat and mouse let’s you relive the original movie and play it out any way you want! In our play poor Degobah fell to the might of the Death Star, but ultimately the rebel scum were able to move there base and elude capture! @the_omega_gamers @vnwclub @lacydove

At the time of the recording, we were gearing up to head out into the woods for our own con we made called 4XCon. It started as a mini retreat with friends who wanted to play 4x Games for multiple days and now it's just a free for all with all of our extended game group. Stay tuned for more details on how it went on the next episode next week, but have some pics on how it went:
