Tuesday. A nice day off and we're into the week. What'd you do with your day off (assuming you had one?). I finally did make that cake. So, that was fun. Now to get through a relatively quick week and get back to the weekend. To help speed things along, let's listen in on some gaming podcasts.
This week on the dial we have: Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 179: Ragusa, Bargain Quest, Watergate; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 63: BEST in Class of the Pathfinder 2e BESTiary; Geeks of the North Episode 83: Mini prep; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 275: Small Scale Sci-Fi; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 68: Sagrada, Quacks of Quedlinburg and Solar Storm; The Secret Cabal Express Episode 51: We Are Collectors; and Tabletop Talk Episode 37: Malifaux Path to Podium with Ray Flynn.
When Ragusa hit the table and we had set up done in under 5 minutes and rules in about the same time, we were impressed. The game play was solid and tight for three of the four players. The other player appreciated the play, but was no competition and that brought out the grumpy. The reason I say this is because people will think I didn’t like the game and that isn’t the case. The game was fine, the player and his play were lacking. It goes to show, that not every game is for everybody. We all have encountered it in the games we have played. So, if you get an chance, play this game. You might discover another classic to add to your collection.
This week, Morrus and Peter talk about the best of everything in the Pathfinder 2nd Edition Bestiary. In the news, more about the new Dungeons & Dragons Eberron sourcebook, Shadowrun Sixth World Edition Core Rulebook released, Patreon suspends “creator” for posting pirated DM’s Guild books, the most common D&D party composition, and more! Plus a brand new sketch!
This week, we catch up for the missed shows with a longer hobby segment, then we chat about model preparation. We also talk about the Terrapilla by ThunderChild Miniatures, the Shovel Knight kickstarter by Panda Cult Games, and the Supers Unlimited Miniatures kickstarter by Kitbash Games.
So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!

We hope you enjoy the show.
Prepare yourselves for another generous helping of tabletop gaming chat, as the boys from Polyhedron Collider talk all things board games, card games and RPGS (as well as some rambling diversions regarding Jon’s taste in TV programs and Andy going to a festival).
