The work week might just be beginning for me (having had yesterday off), but that doesn’t mean I’m not already looking forward to next weekend. Going to a friend’s get-together that should be pretty damn awesome. But we’ve still got 3.5 days of work to get through. So let’s speed things along with some gaming podcasts while we do the daily grind.
This week we have: Game Classy 146: Nothing much; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 18: Ricktastic Voyage; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 129: London, Azul, Flying Squirrels, and Rambling; The Secret Cabal Episode 144: Viral, Trickerion and a Short Topic Extravaganza; Plan of ATK! Episode 12; SAGA THORSDAY Episode 58: Saga Dice!; Gaming On Tap Episode 03: Wonderstuff / Seasons; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 108: Fate of the Elder Gods; The Cardboard Herald Episode 48: Carla Kopp of Weird Giraffe Games; and Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 126: Tasty Minstrel Games With Lance The Undead Viking.

Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 18.
In this Rick-filled episode we send out some belated birthday wishes, Tim explains that human bones are gluten-free, and gym-rat Joe makes the rest of us feel bad for being lazy.
Katie and Dave also recap their trip to Gen Con 50, welcome listeners 8, 9, and 10 to the show, and discuss the benefits of Future Dave when we mess up the podcast way more than usual.
We then talk about our spoiler-filled favorite Rick and Morty episodes, find out there are different levels of asshole, and go off on another tangent to break the 4th wall and talk to the Infinite Dev.
And last but not least, Geeky Jean gets ready for Fall and talks pumpkins, Celebrity Deathmatch descends into chaos, and we go hunting in Tim’s Sack when one of us isn’t who we say we are.
I am back and ready to get back in the rut of life. You know, play a game, talk about a game, play a game, discuss food, and so on. It is good to be back and to put two different games on the table. Plan B Games showed us Azul at Gen Con and said to keep it hush hush. Well, we did but now we can tell you about it in a 5 Minute Initiative. Then, Osprey Games was kind enough to let us try out the re-implementation of Martin Wallace’s London. This is going to take multiple plays in order to fully appreciate this game. There are so many different aspects of this game that we couldn’t contain it in 5 minutes. Either way, we hope you get the opportunity to give this one a try.
Today the founders give you a feature review of Viral from Arcane Wonders and look back at Trickerion from Mind Clash Games. Tony T goes bananas giving you the best news roundup in the business, and we finish with
short topics regarding ‘What is fun?’, Asymmetry and Collectability.
Our dastardly duo returns in Episode 12! Continually excited about the prospects of a spooky and spoopy month ahead, Simon and Laurie report on their success in their latest hobby ventures involving more samurai and Grymkin goodness. News abounds with talk of Shadespire, SAGA, and Paolo Parente’s Dust: 1947 — oh my! Revel in all things terrain with their guest Rob Hawkins as he shares his journey as professional hobby master. The two gush over the super Citadel Paint App, reviewing it’s true awesomeness. Since it’s such a delightfully frightful time of year, don’t miss out on this month’s ghoulish contest!
Rodge here. Welcome to SAGA THORSDAY – your weekly source for Saga the miniatures game content!
This week, I talk about the various dice I’ve made for Saga. Have you made any Saga dice?
Welcome to the third episode of the Gaming on Tap Podcast. Yes, we’re just as surprised as you are! We kick things off by pouring ourselves a glass of a Wonderstuff – a Czech Pilsner from Bauhaus Brew Labs. Then we jump right into one of our favorite card drafting, dice-chucking games – Seasons. Seasons is a tactical game with gorgeous artwork, big custom chunky dice, and a unique circular board. There’s a slight learning curve that pays off if you take the time to study the card abilities. 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!
In this week’s episode:
1) The Pegs discuss recent news and a recent game plays including Pit Crew, Unearth, Delve, and more; and
2) Review the action selection game, Fate of the Elder Gods.
Carla Kopp comes on to talk about her new game on kickstarter, Stellar Leap! We cover everything from the four Xs in X, to what gets her pumped to play Stellar Leap over and over again. We also hit on all kinds of other topics including being a woman designer, what anime character she most relates to, ideas of other creative endeavors, and some really great actionable tips for launching your own kickstarter.
