Happy New Year, everyone!
Well, except for those of you who don’t celebrate that for a couple months. In that, case, Happy Tuesday!
As it is Tuesday, we’ve got our usual collection of podcasts for you to check out.
This week we have: Game Classy 130: Happy New Year from The Macho Man; Man Battlestations Episode 14; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 109: Jorvik, Adrenaline, Oracle of Delphi, Clank! and the Sadlers; The Rolistes Episode 17: Xany, the Brexited Scientist Who’ll Be Back With An Army of Robots; Forgot My Dice Episode 1 (8) : A Giant Viking Coolaid Man; The Cardboard Herald Episode 8: Year End Variety Show Spectacular; Gamers Lounge Episode 134: WWX back with Warcradle Studios; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 86: The Future! 2017; and The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 16: The Best Games of 2016 That We Have Played.
Yet another episode where we create a game and never go anywhere or do anything with the awesome content.
It’s time for Episode 14, the first episode of the MBS podcast for 2017! Following up on their discussion from Episode 13, Greg and Andy tackle the concept of boarding in space naval games. They are then joined by Josh Linde, aka Spartan Linde, to discuss all the cool Spartan Games events coming to this year’s Adepticon. Later, Greg and Andy review the game Deep Wars by Antimatter Games. And finally, they round out the episode by discussing their gaming New Years resolutions!
We enter a new year by starting off pretty strong. We have four 5 Minute Initiatives and we interview the Sadler brothers about a new game they designed for Megacon Games. The game the Sadlers designed is based on the Myth Universe, but aside from having roots in the universe, it is a standalone game, so you will not need Myth to play. You can use the miniatures from Myth if you want as an added bonus, but they are not necessary. The game is a coop game and should be released mid to late summer. If you are interested, be sure to check out the Kickstarter that starts the first week in January.
Back to basics with this episode. No crazy Actual Play with multiple sound effects and other editing craziness.
However, this is for the second time a sad occasion as another member of “La Guilde des Rolistes Francophones de Londres” is leaving London.
Xany, you might remember him from a couple previous episodes, is an awesome roleplayer and friend. It’s sad to see him go (although he’ll be back) but at least his departure was a good excuse to have this episode and discuss about his little path in and out of London.
WE’RE BACK! In this, very very long, episode of the FMD podcast, we talk a lot about what we have been playing, give you what little table top news and Kickstarters we could find during the holiday season. Then we try out the awesome 7th Sea 2nd Edition RPG! It was literally the first time we played it, so I’m sure we got stuff wrong, but who cares when you have so much fun!
Jack and guest cohosts Rob and Christina answer listener questions, talk about what they’ve been playing, and introduce some fun segments including a Pandemic Legacy: Season One spoiler discussion about an hour in. Be warned! Additional music provided by Cheap Beats, check them out at cheapbeatsmusic.bandcamp.com.
Episode 134 is a revisit to the game Wild West Exodus. WWX has changed owners and is now being maintained and developed by Warcradle Studios. This episode Bill talks with Stuart from Warcradle Studios about WWX and it’s future.
Roy, Matt, & Rob talk about games they look forward to in 2017!
It’s the end of the year, so between filling their bellies with roast turkey and figgy pudding and the inevitable hangover that follows New Year and Hogmanay the boys gather to look back at the best board, card and tabletop games of 2016.
