Tuesday. We're into the meat of the work-week. Hopefully, your Monday went well. Mine seemed to drag on. But it did, eventually, come to an end. At least I had a good lunch. I made slow-cooked pork shoulder and have some amazing leftovers that I'll be munching on all week. And what will I be listening to as I enjoy my meals? Some gaming podcasts, of course.
This week on the dial we have: Lords of the Dungeon Episode 41: A Potpourri of Roleplaying Topics; Exploding Dice Radio Episode 14; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 44: Not Even “Remotely” Interesting; The Offline Gamer Episode 55: UKGE Virtually Expo 2020 Preview; and Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 206: Tekhenu, Pop-Tarts, Marvel Villainous, Yacht Rock, Last Defense, King & Assassins, Top 5 Card Games, Interview with David Thompson.
In episode 41, The Lords dig into an entire hour of short topics all about role playing games. Discussion includes session duration, mundane encounters, the balance of roleplaying and combat, when players get bored, and more.
For Episode 14 of the EDR Podcast, Andy is joined once again by Josh! They discuss some newly announced information about Dystopian Wars 3.0, and then move on to discussing some of the concept art, background, and rules that have been revealed for Firestorm Armada ahead of the beta test later this year.
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 44.
In this shoot from the hip episode we find ourselves still isolated and once again have to Skype in the Crew, Patrick misplaces his moose hat when he sits in for a sick Tim, and Lathan buys some new toys to go with his brand new 3-D printing podcast.
Then, we discuss the perils of pre-ordering the new 40k, Katie turns up the volume on Pat when we talk podcast merchandising, and we prove that you get what you pay for when it comes to the quality of our show.
And finally, Katie starts a virtual garage sale to sell Dave’s stuff, we revisit Star Wars Mad Libs to see if the sequel proves worthy of the original, and we outsource Patrick’s job to Lathan when he finds it too hard to dig into Tim’s Sack. I don’t blame you Patrick, that thing makes me sick just thinking of it…
It's almost here, the first ever virtual UK Games Expo! We take a look at what we can expect over the weekend of the 21st to 23rd August!
Another long episode. Good thing we are not playing a bunch of games or this would be six hours. We get a visit for David Thompson, a Squirrelly Award winner, and he talks about his new game on Kickstarter called Sniper Elite. So, if you are wondering about backing this game, give him a listen and bypass the rest of the show. However, if you thought about picking up the games Yacht Rock, Pop-tarts, or Last Defense, then Vanessa and Marty talk about their likes and dislikes.
Marty and I also talk about other games we played this past week, just hate it wasn’t together. I got to play Marvel Villainous with my wife and while it may not been her game, I really like where Ravensburger went with this series. Time to get some strategy on while keeping the simple core mechanics. Then Marty talks about two games he know I would enjoy, King & Assassins and Tekhenu. Both I hope to get to play very soon.
Heck, I hope to get to play them all in the future.
Finally, we discuss our top 5 collectible card games. Sadly, most our out of print or will be out of print soon. We need something new. Oh wait, that leads to the discussion of Vampire: The Masquerade Rivals and Ashes 1.5
