It’s the Tuesday after a very long weekend. I think it’s the day that actually feels like Monday. The actual Monday was some crazy thing that threw us from our homes back into the working world. I know I had a ton of stuff to catch up on yesterday. Some of it’s spilling over today. So I need to make sure I get things done. Having some gaming podcasts going on while I work will help.
This week we have: Meeples & Miniatures Episode 235: Gaslands; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 133: Gaming Unplugged; Singled Out Episode 53: Talking SteamCon 2017 with Mat Hart; 40K Radio Episode 24: Talkin’ Tyranids; Guild Ball Tonight Episode 70: Minor Guilds, How do they Work?; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 132: Bastion, Sidereal Confluence, Necromunda, Fate of the Elder Gods, and Samurai Gardener; The Cardboard Herald Episode 55: Christopher Davis of Windborn Games; Gaming on Tap Episode 06: Samuel Adams / Top 3 Games We’re Most Thankful For; Plain’ and Slayin’ Episode 9: Playin’ and Slayin’ – Gaming Cornucopia; SAGA THORSDAY Episode 65: Byzantines Battleboard and Tactics Pt 2; The D6 Generation Episode 225: Captain Con Update, Santorini & Bunny Kingdoms Reviews; and News of the North – 2017-11-28.
The Meeples crew get together once again to talk about what they have been up to in the past couple of weeks, including games played, miniatures painted and perhaps the odd purchase or two.
For the feature part of our show we chat with Mike Hutchinson, author of the new post-apocalyptic racing game rules from Osprey Publishing, Gaslands.
We hope you enjoy the show.
Betrayal at House on the Hill Legacy
Topic: Gaming Unplugged
How was PAX Unplugged?
We’re going to do extended what we’ve been playing since we all have multiple games to talk about!
What we have been playing?
In this Episode Andrew and Jason talk about SteamCon 2017, and how they had a jolly good time. Then the interesting bit, where Andrew talks to Mat hart about the minor guilds and God Tear.
In this episode we take a look at the new Tyranid Codex. Ashley tells us all about the relics, Hive Fleet traits, and Strategems featured in the new Codex.
Phil’s on his own this week giving a recap of the Steamcon UK Keynote’s major points.
After playing Gentes, we thought all the goodness had come and gone for the year. But no, we are here to tell you that once again, we get blindsided by two games: Bastion and Sidereal Confluence. When will the madness end? How are we going to narrow down our selections for the Squirrely Awards? And on top of that, Marty goes to Pax Unplugged and I am sure he has more to add to the pile.
Bastion is a coop game from Z-Man that was out in 2015 and they have made it available for all to consume. We saw this at Gen Con and we were intrigued by this simple tower defense game. What seemed to be a straight forward coop game turned into a strategy game that caught us off guard. It went from go defeat this guy to now, wait, you need to do this, so I can do that and then he can do that because if you don’t then this will happen and then this chain occurs and so forth and so on. Give this one a try if you like coop games.
Then the Excel spreadsheet game hit the table, Sidereal Confluence and man did it have us scratching our head and in the dark, but not in a bad way. It had player interaction, engine building, multiple strategies and depth, so much depth that we can’t wait to get this back on the table again. Will have to say if it wasn’t for the trading, this game would have floundered a bit, but with the trading, it took it up so many levels. In an engine builder, if your plan comes together, even if you don’t win, there is still satisfaction and that is what happened here. For those that enjoy these types of games don’t miss it.
But not everything was rosy on the table and we discuss that as well. And also, special guests come on the show as Marty heads to Pax Unplugged and has a slumber party with some people you may already know. Listen to these familiar voices talk about Necromunda.
Thanks for listening and all the support.
Chris took the time to talk with Jack on the eve of his first kickstarter launching, Runes of Ragnarok, We cover everything from how to find an amazing artist, to how to properly compliment your spouses cooking. And of course we talk all about what makes Runes of Ragnarok so rad.
It’s the end of November which means it’s almost Thanksgiving. Considering how well our Halloween episode turned out, we decided to go back to that format again and run down each of our top 3 boardgames we’re most thankful for. But before we get into our list, we start things off, as always, by cracking open a cold brew. We thought long and hard about what beer captures the feeling of Thanksgiving and we decided on an American classic – Samuel Adams.
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!
Happy Thanksgiving! After battling through various delays the triumphant trio returns. This episode we talk about our time at GameholeCon, Ty’s trip to PAX Unplugged and all the gaming that has gone on along the way. We then tackle a cornucopia of gaming topics in the main segment and finish up with a ‘Play It or Slay It’ review of Century: Spice Road.
