2018 Media Reviews

I’ve appreciated when people take the time to write reviews and highlight connections to other good works. This is an in-progress list that I’ll update over the course of the year. Previously: 2014 2015 2016 2017

Books

Surgeon’s Mate: Patrick O’Brian; historical
More Napoleonic-era nautical adventures. Very fun reads.
Fire and Fury: Michael Wolff; politics
I look forward to the inevitable libel suits to see if there’s support for the unbelievable anecdotes in this book.

Tabletop Games

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2: Rob Daviau, Matt Leacock; strategy
Only played the prologue twice, but it feels like a nice balance of old and new mechanics. Really looking forwarding to playing through this.
Unearth: Jason Harner, Matthew Ransom; worker placement
Fun, quick strategy game with a nice amount of variance. Rules are a little unclear, seems like almost every action card has a corner case).
