The Damsels Game Cast Episode 161, Civilization V vs VI

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Mythery and Lessah have finally cured their Ark Survival Evolved addiction by getting addicted to Conan Exiles. There is a lot more than we thought to unpack here. Hopefully, Sahba can shed some light on what is happening in the real gaming world. Thanks so much for listening! 

HERE is the Episode!

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by severed limbs. There are endless uses for these things. All you have to do is well… you know. Loved by many animals in Conan Exiles, severed limbs are a fresh, nutritious treat. Get yours…theirs… today!


The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, 20 February CST. This is our 161st show. What to listen to more shows? We have on our YouTube Channel, The Damsels Game, or our Website, More on that in Housekeeping. And you can listen to the show live if you follow us on Twitch. 

Our Latest Episode of Conan Exiles is up on YouTube and easily downloadable on the website.
