First the pair discuss the Gaslands, a miniatures game that uses Hot Wheels scale vehicles, from Osprey Games. They touch on how it plays as well as customizing cars, making terrain, and how they are using it at the library.

Next they talk about Keyforge, a unique deck game by Richard Garfield. After talking about why it is useful to libraries they also discuss a bit about the history or technology and game manufacturing.

The final review is about Detective, a Modern Crime Boardgame that plays like a series of episodes from a particularly intense police procedural TV show. A great gaming experience, but only really suitable for particular game environments.
