Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday. The work week is well underway. With any luck, the start of it went well for you. So let’s keep the ball rolling along to the weekend. Helping things, as usual, is some gaming podcasts.
This week on the dial we’ve got: Nerdherders Episode 27 (117): Spinoff City; Exploding Dice Radio Episode 11; Breathing Flames Episode 5: Farmer Lenny’s Top 7; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 126: Carthago; Cardboard Herald Episode 87: Matthias Nagy of Frosted Games; The Secret Cabal Episode 162: Dinosaur Island, Age of Thieves and a Short Topic Extravaganza; and Drive Thru FM Episode 16: Top 10 Strategy Games with Narrative.
In this installment from the Nerdherders the boys discuss TV and movie characters they would like to see get their own spinoff. They also discuss the usual goings-on in their hobby worlds such as Warhammer 40k, Dungeons and Dragons and Guild Ball along with video games and movies.
For Episode 11 of the EDR Podcast, Andy is joined by Mike, aka TellTaleNoob (or TTN for short!). Together, they discuss the Dystopian Wars models that Warcradle recently showed off at the UK Games Expo. Later, they dig into some of the hints that have been dropped in the Warcradle forums about how carriers might work in DW 3.0.

If you are an American listener, you might just know Matthias Nagy and Frosted Games as “those people who make the board game advent calendars”, but in Germany, Matthias is a podcasting rockstar! Join us as we talk about the importance of the Spiel, the rise of the promo calendar, Frosted Games’ upcoming release designed by Uwe Rosenberg’s “Reikholt”, and more!
We’re back from Origins and have a few tales of gaming and shenanigans to tell plus all the games we played while in Columbus Ohio for nearly a week. Then we do a feature review of Dinosaur Island and a look back at Age of Thieves. Tony T gives us the rundown of all the important news from the tabletop gaming universe while the rest of us quack in the background. Then finally we host another short topic extravaganza in which we talk about the price of boards games, how the Satanic Panic affected gaming and whether board games artwork is actually artwork or not.
