And we're fully encased in the work week as we find ourselves here in Tuesday.
... Tuesday, right? It's still Tuesday? I know I sometimes get my days mixed up, even before all of this "you gotta stay home" thing, but at least today, it's been a little more difficult. Not sure what day it feels like, but I don't know if I'd say it's Tuesday.
But Tuesday it is, and that means we gotta get you some podcasts.
On the dial we have: Tabletop Talk Episode 70: Jack Daw (Resurrectionist): Malifaux Deep Dive; The Secret Cabal Episode 205: Chimera Station, Wingspan and A Short Topic Extravaganza; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 196: Santa Monica, The Search for Planet X, Ripple Rush, Top Grumpy Games; The D6 Generation Pip 40: DnD Live: Lost Mines Session 1; and 40K Radio Episode 51: Online Previews!
Join Craig as his guests explain how they play Jack Daw and the Tormented crew. What is their core crew, their flex picks and their favorite pools? At the end they discuss how to counter the keyword.
The gang is back again for another episode of The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast and today we talk about Steve's encounter with a backyard snake, Tony's standing desk, and take a look at a slew of games we've played including: Brook City, Street Masters, Dinogenics, The Liberation of Rietburg, Archmage, Clinic, Kitchen Rush, Race for the Galaxy and Star Trek Panic. Then we throw down a feature review of Chimera Station from Tasty Minstrel Games and a look back at Wingspan from Stonemaier Games. And finally, After Tony T's award-winning news segment, we host a short topic extravaganza including questions about games with few rounds, if we'd play games even though we're cursed to lose and the awkward moments after a game ends.
First, a big thank you to all that helped get RDTN another nomination to the BGG Golden Geek Award. We really do appreciate it and means a lot to us.
Unfortunately, social distance has kept our game night on hold and Marty is able to call in the troops to help him discuss some games. Vanessa sits down at the mic first and they talk about Santa Monica that takes you to the beach for a little sea shell gathering or that is what I would have called it had I been able to play it. But instead, it is all about collecting the victory points.
Adam is next on the mic and he and Marty get down to finding a lost planet by the code name X. The goal is simple, be the first to find planet X and accumulate the most victory points to pull of the win. The game is about using logic and deduction to figure out where the planet is located. Good thing Marty had Adam helping him with this, I might have not found it.
And the Scurry Reporters are back to try and see if they can pick three games each to determine if those games would make me, Tony, grumpy.
Thanks for listening and once again, we sincerely are grateful for the nomination for the BGG Golden Geek and be sure to go vote before May 1, 2020
