For Jumping the Shark #133, Brandon and Bill celebrate the coming of Summoner Wars on the iOS. (I’m sure I’ll join the jubilee soon. Took the time to figure it out over the weekend and am starting to feel its draw.) There’s also some Amazing Spider-Man discussion and a Bill tangent about not liking fun murderers. And really, who does? Leading off this week, though, Brandon and I wax poetic about the revised Mass Effect 3 ending and he gets me to say something that, in a righteous universe, ought to never ever happen – “Brandon, you’re right.”
And even now a chill goes down my spine.

I have to confess that I did a double take when you said that.
I’m all for people calling a spade a spade when it comes to crappy Euros. Crappy, generic games have gotten a free pass far too long on BGG from the like of Tom Vasel and his glowing reviews of every Gin Rummy/ Go clone with some tacked on theme. I remember Mike Barnes getting excoriated for calling out this kind of crap for what it was. At some point, games that hit all the Euro bases that had good graphics became ‘masterpieces’ to the board gaming community, and it was all nonsense.
BGG is a useful reference site, but it’s not too trustworthy as a review source.
