Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 38.
In our 4th Annual Halloween episode Tim tries to be spooky but fails with some very lackluster intros, Lathan’s update is so long it needs a top ten list and a speed round, and Jean takes a nostalgic trip to Thra and talks about some Gelflings.
Then, we find out who among the crew deserves to wear the crown when Dave breaks out the buzzers for another horror movie trivia contest in the much-anticipated return of The Addams Family Feud.
And finally, we plug a truly terrible Halloween decoration, Geeky Jean plays favorites, and Celebrity Deathmatch welcomes back a previous champion when he’s forced to pick on someone his own size.
Oh, and don’t forget Tim’s Sack. It’s just scary the things we always seem to find lurking in there.
What? You thought the Nerdherders had cast their last pod? Nonsense! The boys are back to fill you in on what’s been going on in their geekery.
2) All the Pegs review the tile-laying, hand-building game Flotilla; and
3) Look back at Thing: Infection at Outpost 31.
Chaos, Bonebois, and ogres
In this fine episode, we revisit some of our adventures at Marty’s annual BooBQ party and the local con that Mark Kale hosts, Mega Moose Con. During these events, we got to the table a brand new game from Space Cowboys that has found its way onto our shelves and might even be that filler that will be the go to when the chance presents itself. I am talking about Ankh’or and if you looking for a light Splendor type game, give this a try.
We also got to play a proto copy of Stronghold Undead and we give our first thoughts on this game that we have been waiting for for a few years. More on that because Ignacy will be joining us on a later show to give us some more intelligent thoughts than what we can supply.
Adam comes back to the show to share his thoughts on Warhammer’s new Feast of Bones box. He and Marty go all miniature and give the details on what is included in this expansion and their thoughts on if you need to add this to your Warhammer collection.
This week, we talk about fan made game apps, their benefits and drawbacks. We then sneak some teasers about the list of games we want to showcase in the next few months. We also talk about the 3d printable Kickstarter by Rogue Sculpts, the Relicblade 2.0 pre-order by Metak King Studio, the Hyperborea Kickstarter by Aradia Miniatures, and the latest Burrows and Badgers Kickstarter by Oathsworn Miniatures.
So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!
This week, Morrus and Peter spend this Halloween season looking at the scariest time for roleplaying, the Satanic Panic of the 1980s. In the news, Tyranny of Dragons reprinted for D&D, Vampire: The Masquerade miniatures, Strange New Worlds released for Star Trek Adventures, a one-page random dungeon generator, and more! Plus Our Favorite Game in All the World and a brand new sketch!
Jeff and Jordan review KOI, from Smirk & Laughter. Things get heated when Jeff calls out Jordan’s comments about solo rules in games. Ok, heated is strong. It’s really just a day ending in Y around here.
What’s this? A full house? Back to the normal format? Something must be amiss. Yes, the full complement of Polyhedron Collider are back with some more board game chat.
We start as ever with a breakdown of the latest news, have a bloody good chat about Stonemaier Games’ latest Tapestry and Jon tells us about his Tesla…again.
In episode 54, a special fifth Wednesday edition of The Secret Cabal Express, Steve, Jesko and Jamie celebrate Halloween by geeking out over the horror movies they love! And we meet a new member of the Secret Cabal monster squad, The Creeper!
Craig discusses a potpourri of topics including painting small models, British vs Pirates, Joan of Arc expansions, & the challenges of conjugating the verb "to dive."
Join Craig as he talks with DZ - the man responsible for the M3e Crew Builder App. DZ explains how the idea of the app started and how, in a few short months, it went from concept to release. We also give a tour of the key features so have your phone handy to follow along. Lastly, DZ reveals some features you may of missed but are too cool not to mention.
