I don’t know what it is about Tuesday that I like. Maybe it’s just that it’s “not Monday.” But it feels like the week’s good and underway. Like, “that mess yesterday’s over with. Bring on the rest of the week!” Maybe that’s just me, but I like Tuesdays. Whatever reason it might be, Tuesdays also include getting together podcasts to help you through your work week.

Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 15.
In this episode we get in touch with our inner Groots, Dave forgets how to count and invites his imaginary friend to the show, and Joe tries his hand at Blade Running when Tim takes a Voight-Kampff test and fails.
We also have a spoiler-filled discussion about Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Joe breaks out the Brandi, and Dave runs into an editing nightmare when Tim and Joe go way off the rails yet again.
And last but not least, Geeky Jean whips up some geeky grub, we start a baby battle in Celebrity Death Match, and we find out that Tim’s Sack is musical if you just know how to handle it. Now I wish I could only find my ear plugs.
This week, Robert is recovering from a short vacation, and Jonathan is recovering from watching Roberts kids while he was on vacation. Jonathan is so tired, that he can barely handle Roberts shenanigans. Also this week we talk about local conventions, including a recent trip to Chupacabra Con, look at Kickstarter, get a ton of news to cover, and talk about a lot of random stuff. All this and more on this episode of the FMD Podcast!
The Meeples crew get back together to catch up with what they have been up to. This week’s topics include Lords of Waterdeep, Skytrex Sherman Crabs, Runewars Miniatures Game, 4Grounds forthcoming Fabled Realms and W40K 8th Edition.
In our feature interview, we are joined by guest Craig Cartmell from The Ministry of Gentlemanly Warfare.
We discuss (amongst other things) how Craig got into the hobby, his journey in writing rules, the evolution of TMOGW’s product line (In Her Majesty’s Name, Daisho, Blood Eagle and Gothic) and the differences between writing for a publisher and self-publishing your own rules.
In episode 137 Steve and Jamie take a look at a super fun game about stealing the emperor’s jewel, Age of Thieves! Then they look back at Moonga Invaders one year later. Steve steps in for Tony as the newsman while Tony is galavanting off to a Tool concert and finally the Founders take four more short topics from the listeners.

Better late than never, the Ice Cream for Everyone Podcast is finally back!
Thanks to a chance encounter for International Tabletop Day at the Chicago Public Library, I met Randy and got to play test his pirate board game, Scoundrels. It was great fun, so we got talking and I invited him to be on the podcast.
I didn’t know at the time that he happens to work from the Cards Against Humanity office and co-working space, so I got a visit and we were able to record in their studio, which was unusually high quality for me. I’m looking forward to having the rest of my recording equipment shipped.
Randy is a video games artist by trade and we had a great conversation about what is recommended to have a successful career in gaming, how Randy got into games, what his inspirations are, and how he started working on his board game.
If you enjoy the episode, please take time to give it a rating and a review on iTunes / iPhone podcast app (or your favourite podcast app), this only takes a few minutes and it really gives more visibility to the podcast so others can find it.
I am getting back in a regular publishing schedule and my goal is to have an episode published every other week, at least twice a month. I am back contacting people to have conversations with and am looking forward to sharing them with you!
Andrew, Martin and Jason discuss how they have found recent games with their chosen guilds.
As part of the Tabletop Showcase series, Eric Lang returns to RDTN for a discussion on his newest game from CMON, The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire. Eric goes over the design process and the things he hoped to accomplish with this euro-game that based on the theme, you might not expect it. Our discussion takes us from the start of the project to the final graphic design. Eric was a very gracious guest and provided us some great insight.
