Dice Tower Deluxe

Open or Closed Scoring is a classic argument that seems to be around forever, so we thought we talk about it once again!  We also are joined by quite a few contributors, including Geoff talking about game economies, Ryan playing long games and liking it, and a new segment on solo games.  We also review several new games, including Mage Wars, Infiltration, Dungeon Command, and Space Cadets live!  All that, news, Tom repeating himself, and more!
