Monday’s done and we’re into the thick of the work week here on Tuesday. I know many people had yesterday off. I’m a bit envious. But I also got a good amount of work done, plus, my 5th Edition PHB came in. So I’ve got that going for me.

Today in the Ludus Bender wants to talk about when Dungeon Master’s screw up and how you handle a bad situation. The guys talk a little bit about when game master’s cheat, when it’s okay and when it’s not and finally they discuss building memorable NPCs in your role playing games.
Today Chris and Jamie talk about movies and TV shows that have similar themes to certain board games. If you like this movie, this board game might be right up your allow and vice versa. Then they discuss some movies they’d like to see turned into board games and board games they’d like to see movies or TV shows based on.
It’s the Playin’ and Slayin’ review of the best four and a half days of miniature gaming in the world. Ty, Josh and Troy recount the end of the Hobby Road to Adepticon, the games they played and stuff they bought, the highs and lows of tournament play and all the amazingness that is Adepticon 2018.

With Bill on the road Phil puts on his snow shoes and heads for the great white north for a guest host. Listen in as Kevin Stewart and Phil talk about OP Documents, the Exiles (so far) and propbably poutine.
I love talking with Tristan Hall, and even better, he brings his buddy, Mark Chaplin, who is co-designer of Lifeform. This beautiful game inspired by classic sci-fi horror movies sounds tense, terrifying, and fun!

Episode 7! Now in colour! This week, we discuss Destroyers at Adepticon and the winning list at a tournament there too. In War Stories, Will somehow doesn’t get massively smashed using a list with NO Strike Carriers, while in Fleet Academy we go in-depth with listbuilding for UCM, focussing on a Burn-Through Laser theme.
During this Designer Deep Dive, we speak with Rob Daviau (designer of Pandemic Legacy, S1 & S2, Betrayal at House on the Hill, and many more) about his upcoming title by Restoration Games, Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar. Fireball Island is a re-implementation of the late 80s mass market title of the same name where players move around a 3D board trying to avoid rolling marbles and other obstacles. We talk to Rob about the unique challenge of revising and refining older titles and this this title in particular. This in-depth and illuminating conversation focuses upon the design of a single board game, exploring everything from design philosophy, prototyping, preserving the spirit of an existing title, and bringing a a design to production (or in this case, kickstarter).
