Reading Rulebooks is a podcast dedicated to reading through rulebooks and teaching games! In this podcast I directly read the rulebook as well as discuss the game and try to clear up potential areas of confusion.
Check out the Game section of MCG for more episodes of the Reading Rulebooks Podcast or check out the MCG YouTube Channel for Videos!
This week we are going to cover the rules for Obsession. Obsession is a game by Dan Hallagan, with the art done by Dan Hallagan and published by Kayenta Games. Expansions include The Wessex Expansion, Promotion Cards, Upstairs/Downstairs, Promotional tiles, and the Useful box.
This is one of my longer episodes but that is not because the game is difficult. The rulebook is extremely thorough in exploring every detail and potential scenario.
