Good evening, I'm JP Rodman reporting live from Week Two of ClaytonCon.
The Big Two is a climbing game with an interesting set of allowed card plays. I particularly like that you can play a set of 4 with one other random card. I first learned The Big Two half my lifetime ago (14 years). It's not nearly as good as I remember it being, but I had a really high opinion of it back then, so I'm not saying it's bad, just a little flawed. I'd like to try it again with some of the rules changes we talked about like removing the score multipliers when you have most of your cards left at the end of the round.
I think Jeffles described Power Grid as "like Funkenschlag without all the tedious boring parts". I probably shouldn't put quotes around that since I really don't remember exactly what he said. ...and he definitely didn't include the hyperlink.

Clayton says: "...next week's musical theme, and indeed the next two after that, will contribute to the over all theme-arc (meta-theme?)."
