In our first episode of 2017, we share our thoughts on some great small box games, Wok on Fire from Green Couch Games and Martial Art from Spider Goat Games. Then we up the ante by talking about Starfall by Scott Almes and published by IDW and Pandasaurus Games and Adrenaline published by CGE.

Lara has a sweet game night grub recipe, and in our topic of the show, we discuss comparing yourself to other gamers - how it happens, why we think it's bad, and how to stop doing it!
