So, we're done with Monday. That's fine. We've made it this far, we can make it through the rest of the week. And something that'll help is a set of gaming podcasts to get the week done quicker. And, I mean, Halloween is this weekend, so who wouldn't want the week to go by quickly? This week on the dial we have:
It's Halloween and the Founders are back to scare your pants off! The gang talks about Origins Game Fair, feature review Unfathomable from Fantasy Flight Games and Spooky Board Game Rethemes. AND throughout the episode the gang is visited by the Gatekeeper from the old Nightmare board game to give us some Halloween pop quizzes.
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 49.
In this 6th Annual Halloween episode, we return to our roots with some rather fitting monster names, Tim shows off his inner sous-chef, and Dave’s forced to rush through his hobby updates yet again.
Then, Addams Family Feud once again rises from the dead, Jean picks up a rather unfortunate new nickname, and we find out that Dave must have learned his math skills from Jane Goodall.
And finally, Shut Up and Take My Money hits the Halloween runway, Geeky Jean takes a breather after all those knuts, and Celebrity Deathmatch finds itself in a bit of a rough patch.
Oh, and don’t forget about Tim’s Sack. Even when he has to leave early we find out it’s still just as spicy in his absence..
This is going to be a short blog for this episode, it is late. We played some good games, we talk about them, and then Vanessa joins Marty to talk about a game. Also, there is a taste test and music talk. Just like any other RDTN show.
Fine, the new implementation of Dune, I heard, was very streamlined and it was that. We got the game in with a teach in under two hours. There has to be more strategy to the game than we encountered, so it needs to hit the table again to discovery where the gems are for this quicker version. Land vs Sea was good, really good if you enjoy the tile type games. Having tiles where you have to choose which side to use was something new.
Vanessa and Marty sound like they enjoyed the new expansion to D&D Ravenloft so if you have that game still on the shelf and want to maybe give it some more love or maybe it has never been forgotten, now you got something new to play.
Dreadful Circus was the surprise for this show. I am not one to get into negotiation games, but this one was different. It was a blast. There was enough hidden knowledge, enough table talk without it dragging on, that this game was just fun. Well done Ignacy for picking this one up, we are proud of you.
Thanks for listening and come back again where maybe I can keep our banter under 15 minutes
Is Underworlds too expensive?
In which we learn what happens if you offend a cult adjacent professional entertainer.
