This is a big one! We play and talk about Zombicide: Black Plague from Cool Mini Or Not, a game we both loved despite having some precarious situations emerge at the table. This co-op tabletop board game is pretty fantastic, and we highly recommend it to anyone who's looking to get into a game that can be upgraded easily as time goes on!

Oh yeah, AND WE GOT ENGAGED!
