I've only played Citadels once, but I've played 7 Wonders a lot and the drafting mechanic works really well in that.

I think there's a "Let's talk about..." at about 4:20 you didn't edit out, although it might not be a "Let's", I'm not 100%.

Three episodes in, I really like the dynamic between you two. The moment where, after Ben constructs "What do you want to talk about?" with relative ease, Lewis launches into about a minute of garbled jumbling made me laugh out loud. "And I think I said it is but I will that out!"

That bit was a "Let us" with the "Let" mostly removed. The problem is that sounds weren't easily decomposable into words in some places. I didn't see any middle ground between "'t us" and "sss," so I went with the one that had more than hissing. Common phrases are pretty easy to reconstruct in your head while listening to truncated versions like that, unfortunately. (In most situations, this is a fortunate thing.)

The drafting part was about games in general, and then poker in specific, but "games" and "poker" were both cut out, so it's pretty hard to guess that. I completely agree about 7 Wonders.

I could have sworn you had said "Behold, we are conversing lengthily regarding Citadels; alternatively, Texas River Games's twenty-oh-nine Spiel des Jahre-netting deck-builder; alternatively, Seven Wonders".
