  1. Hello from sunny South Africa!

    Thanks for a great podcast. You guys had me laughing quietly to myself at my desk for most of the day today…

    I have to say that my experience of Keyflower is that it’s a 90 min game, even with four players. I really didn’t find that winter took too long. We really found it to be a short game (compared to the longer heavier Euros that we’re used to).

    We haven’t got it to the table recently, but that’s a whole other discussion…

    Thanks much!
