We’re excited to be back for a second episode. This time we begin by pouring a glass of a delicious IPA from Three Magnets Brewing. Then we bust out Lords of Waterdeep and gush about how much we love it. Lords of Waterdeep is an instantly classic worker-placement that’s easy to learn and, more importantly, a ton of fun to play. We wrap things up with some banter about what’s brewing in the world of tabletop.
But enough of this reading stuff! Grab yourself a stool, press play and relax as we pour you this deliciously frosty episode of the Gaming on Tap Podcast!
The Meeples crew get together once again to talk about what they have been up to, which this week includes Wings of Glory WWI, Conqueror Models Dwarves, Star Wars: Armada and Empires at War buildings.
For the feature part of our show this week, we chat with Jon Tuffley from Ground Zero Games. We talk about how he got started in the industry, the birth of the classic games Full Thrust, Dirtside and Stargrunt, and what the company is doing at the moment. We even get chance to answer a few listener questions.
We hope you enjoy the show.
