Tuesday. The work week is well underway. Oh, and I've forgotten to mention that we recently made it into a new season as well. Yes, it's officially summertime here in the north and wintertime down in the south. This year sure is going by quickly. And if there's something else I'd like to go by quickly, it's the work week. So, let's listen to some gaming podcasts to help it along.
This week on the dial we have: Podcast Episode 9: Hot Topic - The Habanero; The Secret Cabal Episode 209: Escape Plan, Lord of the Rings Journeys In Middle-Earth and A Short Topic Extravaganza; The Secret Cabal Express Episode 61: Euro Games vs Ameritrash Games; Tabletop Talk Episode 79: Ulix (Bayou) Malifaux Deep Dive with Reice Chaudhry; The Offline Gamer Episode 52: Itching To Play...; and Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 201: Isaac Childres Interview, Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion.
The Hot Topic Challenge continues as Colby, Joe, Bistro and special guest Chad Hoverter take on the spicy habanero!
Hey Now Cabalists! Today the gang starts out with a bit of celebration as we achieved all three of our Kickstarter Goals and The Cabal will go on! The the Founders get into some of the games they've been playing including The Shining, Pan Am The Game, Escape Room: The Game, Healthy Heart Hospital, Ghost Stories, and Arcadia Quest. Then the gang features Vital Lacerda's Escape Plan and look back at Lord of the Rings Journeys In Middle-Earth from Fantasy Flight Games. Tony T goes overboard with some crazy news stories (including the weirdest sex themed board game you've ever seen) and finally a short topic extravaganza including topics about Cthulhu in Kemet, our other hobbies and underrated game designers.
In episode 61 Jamie, Steve, Don and Aaron from Lords of the Dungeon start off by talking about retail therapy and their growing collection of video games. Then the gang jumps into a discussion about Euro Games and Ameritrash games and what we like and dislike about both.
Join Craig and his guest, Reice, as they discuss Ulix for Bayou. What makes the crew work? What are the key hires? What pools do they excel in? How do you counter them?
Matt's gone a bit crazy backing Kickstarters, and also has around 1700 games to play from the Bundle for Justice and Racial Equality. He's itching to play them... (See what we did there?)
After 200 episodes, you would think that word would get around to designers warning them of coming onto our show. Well, if it did, Isaac Childres ignored it and took his chances with us.
We have a great time talking video games, board games, and his new creation Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion. You can find this game at Target right now, and sometime next month at your local stores or online. If you go to Miniature Market, you can go ahead and pre-order. Click on the this link
And just when Isaac thought he had escaped, we drop Rank’em on him. If only had listened to the warnings. You would think a guy who writes scenarios would have picked up on those tales of foreboding.
