Ok, so Monday was off to a rough start, but it turned around a little later on. I'm guessing the chilidogs with homemade chili that I had did a lot to make things better (they had extra onions and spicy mustard because I ain't gonna be kissin' anyone). But as we're into Tuesday, that means that we're into the real meat of the week (apparently, I'm ready to have more chilidogs...). Let's get your week moving along with some gaming podcasts. This week on the dial we have:
The gang talks about some of the games they've been playing, dive deep into a feature review of Oath Chronicles of Empire and Exile by Cole Wehrle, Tony T collects and presents the best of the best tabletop gaming news you'll ever heard finally hosts a Short Topic Extravaganza including questions from listeners regarding using chess clocks, getting deeper into the theme of a game and losing your cook at the table.
In episode 52, the gang starts out be discussing what they're going to do during the summer months with vacations and other travel interferes with the gaming schedule. Then the Lords take a couple of questions from listeners including running games with little knowledge of the setting and what RPGs would NOT like to run or play in. Then the group rounds out the episode by talking about high vs low complexity role playing game systems.
We look and the new Second Edition of one of your favorite games, Gravwell. Does the rework and additions make it worthy of replacing your old copy? If you don’t have the First Edition, should you get this edition? Hopefully we will answer those questions so you can make an informed decision. We also played a very light family style racing game called Greece Lightning. This is a fast playing, dice rolling game that in my opinion never will stay on the table too long. You can easily get two plays done in under an hour. Heck, if the dice are rolling good, you could get two plays in within 30 minutes.
Vanessa joins Marty to discuss the next expansion to Arkham Horror without giving away spoilers. They discuss some key additions that you will find in this expansion. But did they like it? Please, it is Arkham Horror, what do you think?
In this episode we take a look at codex Adeptus Mechanicus and Necromunda Hive War. We find out just how well has GW done pulling us into Necromunda and what crazy plans JF has in store for his Beast Snaggas!
Culling through the back of the game closet an old game is found. Is it still worth keeping in the collection?
It's time to return that old game to the table and see. This time: Mage Wars. How is it nearly 10 years after release?
