This podcast episode was originally broadcast live on our Twitch channel! Dustin and Rick talk about Star Realms: Commanders with an emphasis on the new Strategy Series. Lots of Origins talk and fun times!

The title comes from a new format that Dustin invented on the cast called "The Gauntlet"!

A note that this episode was not recorded in our typical manner, hence the bit of echo/reverb. Effort was made to reduce this, so you shoulda heard it before.
