It’s back to Tuesday we go. The Work Week will be conquered and we will make it back to the weekend. And a good way to help out with that is by listening to some gaming podcasts. Put one on, and before you know it, you’ve got some great gaming information as well as several hours have gone by. It’s a win-win.
This week we have: Geeks of the North Episode 42: Wander: The Cult of Barnacle Bay; Playin’ and Slayin’ Episode 7: Gen Con 50; 40k Radio Episode 22: Talkin’ Tables; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 229: The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire; Singled Out Episode 46a: Bonus Episode: Same 6, Different Day; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 31: Wreck & Ruin, This War of Mine and reviewing board games; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 123: Top 10 Space Games; The Cardboard Herald Episode 45: Morten Monrad Pedersen of the Automa Factory; SAGA THORSDAY Episode 55: Rus Princes Warband; The Secret Cabal Express 30: The Further Evolving Board Game Industry and Community with Rodney Smith; and News of the North – 2017-09-19.
In this episode, we talk with Heath and Jonathan from Panda Cult Games about their upcoming game Wander: “The Cult of Barnacle Bay”, on Kickstarter right now. We also run our first contest where you can win two models from the Westfalia Miniatures’ line. So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!
We are back from Gen Con 50! Ty, Troy, and Josh talk about what they played and slayed at Gen Con and along the way review: Wasteland Deliver Service, Flamme Rouge, EXIT, and Bob Ross: The Art of the Chill.
In this episode we take a look at a couple Kickstarter campaigns currently going on for gaming tables. We discuss the pros and cons of both types and hear about how excited Ashley is for her new gaming table. We also speculate about the Citadel Paint App and talk about some of the apps that we already use for tracking our paints.
The Meeples crew get together once again to talk about what they have been up to, which this week includes Direwolf Rampant, Lord of the Rings miniatures and The Lord of the Rings Card Game.
For the feature part of our show this week, we provide an in-depth review of the boardgame The Godfathe: Corleone’s Empire – designed by Eric M Lang and published by Cool Mini Or Not.
We hope you enjoy the show.
This is a BONUS EPISODE! This episode was originally released mid-August for our Patreon subscribers, and I have released it as an example of some of the content that is released.
After a bit of a break the chaps from Polyhedron Collider return with a good old chat about board games. We go full throttle for our review of Wreck & Ruin, race animals in The Champion of the Wild, get all depressed in This War of Mine and drown our sorrows on a Drinking Quest.
The boys then have a good lock chat about the current state of board game reviews and look at ethics, how we approach reviews and the best and worst receptions we have had to a review.
Roy and Rob talk about our top 10 space games!
Morten Monrad Pedersen is best known for his work on the Scythe and Viticulture solo modes, but did you know he too scoffed at solo games just over 5 years ago? I was thrilled to talk with Morten, not only because of his involvement in some of the most celebrated solo games in the industry, but also because his Scythe Automa design was the game that opened my eyes to how and why solo play can be meaningful. We talk about his life growing up in Denmark, his history with computer programming, and how he got wrapped up in all of this solo play stuff with Stonemaier Games.
