Monday’s gone. That brings us to Tuesday. Mine’s starting off pretty good. I got new dice and a new shirt delivered in the mail. And, I mean, who doesn’t love dice? Nobody who I call my friend, anyway.
Also, my Monday seemed to go by quickly. Here’s to hoping the rest of the week speeds on by and we can get back to that weekend. Speaking of helping the week go by, let’s get you some podcasts to listen to while you do your work.
This week on the dial we have: Game Classy Episode 160: Game Stuff; Man Battlestations Podcast Episode 29; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 23: Adeption Live! 3rd Time’s a Charm; Cheated Fates Radio Episode 8: Adepticon 2018 Recap; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 141: Fireball Island, Flamme Rouge, Middle Earth Quest, Charterstone; The Cardboard Herald Episode 74: Tony “Bearded Rougue” Miller Comes Back To Set Fire To My Library; The Secret Cabal Episode 156: The Pursuit of Happiness and a Short Topic Extravaganza; SAGA THORSDAY Episode 84: Movement and Combat Changes in 2nd edition; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 120: Dinosaur Island; and News of the North – 2018-04-10.
I honestly don’t remember what we talked about. I think Street Fighter and Fireball Island
In Episode 29 of the MBS podcast, Greg and Andy are updating a couple of topics they last examined a year ago! First, the do an update on “Class B” games, and add a couple to the list as well. Later, they go back to the movies to discuss 4 new naval-themed films.
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 23.
In our 3rd Annual Adepticon Live Recording Todd, Eddie, and other fans show up when we bribe them with crappy games, Dev drinks tequila while we sing him Happy Birthday, and listener Lyn stops by and questions why women would settle for bad boob jobs.
We then try to chat about our time at Adepticon, Joe claims to run as fast as a Kenyan but ends up dancing with woofs, and Geeky Jean cuts in line to tell us what wedding gifts to get for our geeky newlyweds Chaos Dave and Alyssa.
And last but not least, Celebrity Death Match sees TNG face off against GNT, we find that any press is good press unless it involves sodomy, and then we witness the cruelest joke of all when we take another hilarious look into Tim’s Sack.
Joe and Adam are back with a new episode. In this episode we talk about Adepticon 2018, upcoming events, and do some crew construction. Hope you enjoy and as always look forward to any feedback.
We know that Mr. Jacobson and Mr. Daviau are making their rounds to talk about Fireball Island: Curse of who we can’t say until it is funded. And we didn’t want to be left out of the media blitz. Hopefully, our sit down with them will be informative and help you decide on how much money you are willing to drop on this classic. If anything, be sure to check out our questions at the end where Rob’s true personality shows up.
Our games in this episode include the classic Middle Earth Quest (MEQ) by Fantasy Flight and Flamme Rouge by Stronghold Games. Don’t have a lot to say about MEQ other than I am glad I got to experience the game. The length of the game would make it hard to get to the table, but would play it anytime. Flamme Rouge will be a game we get on the table a bunch in the future. So fast and easy to play and teach. The only downside is setting up the track each time, but once that is done, you could easily do a best of 3 racing series in under an hour. Understand that people have been raving about this one for some time and wish we had been right there with them. You will be hearing about this again when we get the expansion to the table.
I had such a great time chatting with Tony last time that we hardly got to dive into games. Well fortunately, Tony came back and is here to talk about his hot new game on kickstarter right now, Fire in the Library. Next week, Carla Kopp of Weird Giraffe Games will come on and give a publishers perspective on this ferocious, fire game.
It’s the big day! The 2018 kickstarter has launched! Also, Bender and Jamie just got back from RobbCon with Blue Peg Pink Peg and Chris has an epic tale of why he didn’t make it this year. Then Chris and Jamie take a look at The Pursuit of Happiness from Stronghold Games. Tony T goes ape giving you the worlds best gaming news awhile the rest of us quack in the background. Then finally we round out the show with a Short Topic Extravaganza in which we talk about Fireball Island fervor, board game expansions, and why Chris has an intellectual properties board game phobia.
