This month the podcast goes a bit meta, as the podcast is themed around…themes. Charlotte and Jamie share their thoughts on two Mars-themed games, Pocket Mars and Terraforming Mars. The regular feature Gullible Gamer is reversed, as Charlotte challenges Jamie to identify the fake Monopoly theme in a line-up. And the duo discuss all things theme – what themes are we drawn to? What themes are off-putting? And ultimately, what is more important to us, theme or mechanic?
