Tuesday. Tuesday. Tuesday.
Tuesday doesn’t get a lot of attention, I feel. We talk about Monday, because it’s the start of the week. Wednesday and we’re halfway there to the weekend. Thursday, I could never get a handle on Thursdays. And Friday’s Friday. But Tuesday… Well, we’re here, we might as well make the most of it. And that includes listening to gaming podcasts.

We spend a good portion of this episode discussing the new game Castell from Renegade Games. While what you do on your turn is simple, the complexity is driven from the advance planning that needs to be done. This is not a game where you play your turn, rinse, and repeat. No, you need to be thinking two, three, shoot, to the very end of the game if you want to be successful and pull of the best human tower, a Castell, as possible. This game, when done playing, is like others where you will find yourself thinking about the strategy for the next play. But due to the randomness, it will not be cookie cutter, you will need to adapt.
Pulsar 2849 from CGE was another thinky game that we put on the table, but the randomness of the dice and the limited actions on your turn can keep you from being able to plan ahead. You will have a strategy, but it will not be detailed like Castell, but more on how you will maximize your points this turn and hope that you have built your engine up enough to score major points at the very end of the game, while keeping your opponents in check.
Both of these games will be back on the table this year, or I can only hope.
In this special series from the Lords of the dungeon, Bender and Jamie will discuss their process for running role playing game campaigns.In the first episode we discuss the clean slate – where do you get started creating a campaign for your RPG group?
Barron narrowly avoided a fly’s fate in the maw of a glacier toad and L’Orc leveled up, but Skirgaard still lies beyond their perception. Will they find the hidden city? What dangers still lie in their path?
