BGWS 066 – Simultaneous Auction games

Scott talks about several Simultaneous Auction games, treatment including Amun-Re, Homesteaders, Peloponnes, and Cyclades. (21:29)

In this episode of Board Games with Scott, host Scott Nicholson takes a look at several different simultaneous auction games, including Amun-Re, Homesteaders, Peloponnes, and Cyclades.

(note – I make one mistake in the Homesteaders rules. In Homesteaders, if you are outbid, you may rebid on the same track.)

No new episode yet, but one will be coming soon.

I’ve changed around some of my social media sites, and wanted to let you know the new addresses so you can keep up with me. I got tired of Facebook mixing up my various personal and academic lives, so I’ve changed how I’m broadcasting there.
