Tiki Long Tongue Liar and Gates of Delirium

51 Featured

Ever wonder about the creatures from beyond your sight and what madness lies in even trying to discover the truth behind the veil, and also what would be a nice refreshing beer to drink while doing it? Well this week we review both the beer Tiki Tongue Liar from Miskatonic Brewery and the board game Gates of Delirium from Renegade Game Studios. The beer is described as a soft, tart, and prickly kettle sour with pineapple flavors, complemented by a slightly salty and sweet body. The dry hop of Sabro adds a light coconutty taste to the beer.

Moving on to the game review, Gates of Delirium is a game where players embark on a quest to uncover the truth. They search for ancient runes, lost pages of a scattered tome, and investigate the rumors of evil monstrosities calling for their return. As players progress, they become less connected to reality and experience strange occurrences, losing track of time and feeling the whispers of secret gates to another world growing stronger.

The game revolves around split action cards, with one side representing sanity and the other insanity. Each round, one player decides whether the round will be sane or insane, and all players must play the corresponding side of their cards. During sane rounds, players search for maps, lost pages, and assign investigators to aid their cause. In contrast, during insane rounds, players collect ancient runes and work towards building gates to release the very monstrosities their sane selves have been trying to prevent.

Madness

The objective is to earn the most victory points by the time the last monstrosity is released. Michael and Suzy provide their thoughts on the game, discussing its mechanics, gameplay experience, and overall enjoyment. Listeners can gain insights into both the beer and the board game, making it an entertaining episode for couples interested in board game reviews while enjoying a drink.

This week’s Last Call is Ding Dong and Mekkablood: Series One, both on Kickstarter!
