Tuesday already. Long weekends where you get Monday off are nice because you get back to work and it's already Tuesday. Never a complaint from me for that. I'm ready to get the week done and back to the weekend again. I hope (those of you that had the day off) had a good day off (and to those that didn't, I still hope your Monday was good). But, let's get back into things with a couple podcasts to listen to. Today on the dial we have:
Our DM Academy series continues with Raef interviewing Russ's brother John on his DM style which involves building worlds from scratch. Very different from Russ, who prefers to leverage pre-made source material.
Oh Yeah! Tony and Chris are back in action in episode 238 of The Secret Cabal! Today we start off by hearing a little about Tony's journey across the country and then dive into the games we've been playing over the past 2 weeks. Then Don and Jamie dive into an in-depth review of Descent Legends of the Dark. Then finally the gang discusses whether size matters in board gaming - box size, card size, table presence, etc.
This is another long one but it has a bunch of games and they offer something for everyone. We revisit one our favorites from five years ago and see if it holds up. We play a game that just made us go, Wow, this is fun, where has it been all our lives. Marty then reminds me that I am old and my vision is not what it used to be and gives me models to put together and that was an experience.
But the highlight reviews of Iberian Gauge and Kokopelli are about two games that we both really like. Iberian Gauge is a train gauge. It is an economic game. So it had us there. Kokopelli is about changing rules during the game and trying to out maneuver your opponent with card play.
Thanks for taking the time to listen and hope you enjoy some of our deep insights into these games. Okay, that might have been a stretch
