It's quite a Tuesday for me. I'm getting my second shot in the arm. So, there's a good chance I'll be laid out for a day or so afterward. I'm going to spend it relaxing, having some ice cream, and listening to some gaming podcasts. What ones? Well, on the dial this week, we have:
No minis for a while, and monster hunter kickstarter
After The Empire is a worker placement/resource management game set in the middle ages. During each turn, known as a season, players alternate using worker tokens to take actions, such as gathering resources, building advanced buildings and recruiting refugees. Once all workers have been committed, players harvest food from their surrounding lands and then prepare for combat. During each season's combat, invader cards are revealed, with a randomized number of troops and compass direction of attack. Only the wealthiest of castles will draw the attention of larger forces and their siege weapons. You must repair your city and recruit and arm your troops quickly to stand any chance. The winner is the lord or lady who has best preserved their fiefdom and saved up the most gold.
Russ shares his thoughts on the board game "Galaxy Hunters" from IDW Games. Mechs, biomutants, and worker placement? In space? With dice? Yes, please.
