Master of Magic

Who likes turn based strategy games? WE DO! But we think we're not alone in that.

Simtex' 1994 4X classic Master of Magic is seen by many as one of the hidden gems of the genre often compared to "Civilization with Magic", but does that hold up? Or is it actually more than that? We're discussing this and many more questions with a few veterans and a newcomer to the game.

Joining hosts Martijn ("Tijn") and Florian ("rnlf") for this episode are Oddvar ("dollarone") and HP ("HPLoveGames"). FatherBeast has sent such an extensive voice message, that we consider him the fifth participant in this episode, haha.

Now let's get ready to cast a Wall of Darkness and conquer Arcanus and Myrran together!

Trying a different microphone setup if I join again. I had a bad case of “mouth noises.” XD
