The Rolistes Podcast is now THREE YEARS old…
Can you believe it?
Turns out I didn’t have to make any wish while blowing the candles to be blessed with two amazing guests for this small occasion.
Please meet Satine Phoenix and Ruty Rutenberg visiting us in London from California across the Pond. This happened as part of their European tour tied to their participation to the very first “D&D in a Castle“.
The duo are the creators of the very successful Dungeons & Dragons streaming shows under the “Maze Arcana” umbrella.
But there’s more…
Satine is Community Manager for the tabletop RPG overlord publisher “Wizards of the Coast” while Ruty is a screenwriter and his RPG author credits now include the brand new “Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron” (if you pay attention to the episode you will hear him almost spill the beans).
Check this episode to hear them talk about this, their passion for The Hobby and much much much more.
…oh also if you are from anywhere in the UK, I recommend you check “Role Together“.
This new initiative by Role Play Haven is dedicated to supporting the existing RPG clubs, help open new ones ANYWHERE IN THE UK, while also supporting local charities.
See you in a few weeks when we will resume our UK Games Expo 2018series.
This is our Gen Con recap show and we have joining us, like he had a choice, is Rodney Smith from Watch It Played. We discuss the shiny things we saw at the show and the adventures we had while there. Marty and I were also lucky enough to sit down with Joe Manganiello and discuss his new line of clothes Death Saves. We even have time to discuss the recently released game Railroad Rivals by Forbidden Games. Love my train games and this is a straight forward pick up and deliver game where you are trying to manipulate the prices of stocks that you are collecting so you have the most money at the end. What makes this game different is the strategy of placing the city tiles in hopes of connecting more than one route which if done, can greatly benefit you in the game.
There were other games we played, but didn’t go into any details. The breakdown of the show is in the table below, so hopefully that will help you navigate to the parts you might want to hear.
Can you hear in my voice how excited I am to talk to another board game reviewer? For an hour, we geek out about games, creativity, criticism, and Archipelago. It is absolutely apparent in reading even one of Marc's articles that he lives up to his moniker. If you are listening / reading / viewing my junk and not checking out his, you are doing something wrong.
Another Gen Con has come and gone. The guys recall their adventures at the greatest four days of gaming and review a few of the games they played there: Reef, Tiny Epic Zombies, Shogunate and many others. In “Play it or Slay It” this time they review the new Age of Sigmar themed TCG released at Gen Con, Warhammer: Champions.
Today the gang presents their new show, The Chris, Jamie and Steve Show over on YouTube and Tony and Jamie talk about their adventures at Gen Con. Then fter talking about a whole mess of games, Steve and Jamie review the new game based on Brandon Sanderson's book series, The Reckoners and look back at The Godfather: Corleone's Empire. And finally after Tony T gives you all of the more important news around the gaming world, the Founders do another Short Topic Extravaganza in which they talk about solo games and best two player games to play with your spouse.
The Gen Con mob is in the 3rd chair! Join us in the final mega-sode of the D6 Generation as we play a massive game with a mob and discuss our favorite games we played & purchased at Gen Con 2018.All that plus:- Total Fan Girl- Do You Ever Notice- App of the Ep- & More
