Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 11.
In this episode we find out what everyone got for Christmas, check out the status of our New Year’s resolutions, and share our final spoiler filled thoughts on Rogue One.
Then, Geeky Jean comes early and offers up some Valentine’s Day advice, we discuss what we think of adult games, and Lathan scares us with a glimpse into his sex dungeon.
In addition, we have some technical difficulties and experience a Russian takeover, find out who comes out on top when Celebrity Deathmatch turns into a threesome, and Dave goes insane and tries to give away free stuff.
And last but not least, we dig into Tim’s Sack and reveal our lucky contest winner. I never thought I would use the term “lucky” when it came to Tim’s Sack..
Jack talks with the infamous Jesper Myrfors, the original art director for Magic The Gathering, Co-designer of Clout Fantasy, entrepreneur, father, designer, immigrant, and all around cool guy!
It was over 100 episodes ago when our wives joined us on RDTN. It only took four years for them to forget about that experience and join us again beyond just a game review. They enlightened us on where they thought RDTN would be in four years and how things have changed in the four years since we started this adventure. We then tricked them into playing The Castles of Burgundy: The Card Game so we could do a group review. We hope you enjoy them coming back and remember, the next four years will fly by until they return again. Maybe, if they get some praise, they will come back on sooner than later.
We had some time to capture a few Flying Squirrels for the show since the ladies left a little early and how we have gone down the rabbit hole with Star Wars Destiny. Be sure and check out the Kickstarter for Delve by a good friend of the show Pete Shirey. It is tile laying, dice rolling, dungeon delving game. Delve, I get it now. Have you ever noticed just the amount of kickstarters that come out this time of year. There a another big one from CMON and then there is Railways of Nippon. How is someone to decide on what to get and still have some money to spend on Star Wars Destiny boosters. Then there are accessories and little projects as well that need some love.
Hope you enjoy the show and please be sure to post a review if you get a chance, we really do appreciate it.
