Ryan Lesser is in the third Chair!  Ryan has been helping build great rhythm games (Rockband, Dance Central) at Harmonix for years.  And he's also designed and released High Heavens, an innovative two player strategy game.

Later we dive into High Heavens.  What inspired Ryan to build the game, how does it play, and what to Craig and Russ think of it?

Later we review Among the Stars from Stronghold Games.  A beautiful card game with a strong space theme.  Will even Craig like it?

And it's finally time to announce the winners of the Stronghold Games contest.  This time around the entries were AMAZING.  Don't miss the fantastsic efforts our listeners!
