And we’re into Tuesday. My Monday was really busy, so it went by quick. You know that’s not a complaint. Always ready for that weekend. And to help you get that work-week going along a little quicker, let’s listen in to some gaming podcasts. This week on the dial we have:

Game Classy Episode 281: Mailbag

we haven’t done a mailbag in a while. Also I apologize for Steve’s mic in the first half.

The Secret Cabal Episode 271: Beast and Worn Out Genres and Mechanisms

Hey now Cabalists and welcome to episode 271 of the secret cabal gaming podcast! Today the gang starts off by talking about some game days they’ve recently attended and a bunch of the games they’ve been playing including Marrakesh, Long Shot The Dice Game, Joan of Arc, Theurgy, Ferret Out, Score Cards and a feature review of Beast. Then after Tony T gives you the best official tabletop gaming news that you can find on the internet, the Founders talk about some genres and mechanisms that just might have worn out their welcome.

The D6 Generation Pip Episode 153: D&D Live – Sands of Khassan Session 0

We’re kicking off a new D&D live play campaign…Sands of Khassan. This time with a new Dungeon Master: Russ’s brother John Wakelin and a whole new cast of characters.

The campaign is already underway…but in Session 0 Russ interviews John on the backstory to catch listeners up…along with John’s thinking behind his world-building.

Polyhedron Collider Episode 128: Autobahn, Furnace, Pandemic Iberia and D&D Honor Among Thieves

Join the boys from the Collider as they discuss Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves and optimal cinema seating considerations.

Andy and Rory recap their mammoth 11 hour gaming day which started with Autobahn from Alley Cat Games, the excellent little engine builder: Furnace from Arcane Wonders and then look back to 2016 and a great twist on Pandemic with Pandemic Iberia from Z Man Games.

Some great listen questions end the show followed by a shameless plug for the live Podcast recording during the UK Games Expo.

Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 288: Banish the Snakes, My Shelfie, Ierusalem – Anno Domini, Worldbreaker

Legend has it that Saint Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland, but this is actually a myth. There is no evidence that snakes ever existed in Ireland, as the country has been separated from the European mainland for thousands of years. Therefore, it is more likely that the legend of Saint Patrick and the snakes is a metaphorical tale that refers to the saint’s efforts to convert the Irish people from their pagan beliefs to Christianity. And that is what you and your fellow Saints are attempting in this new GMT cooperative game. It is a toughie, liking playing with six pandemic cards.

Today, the site of the Last Supper is believed to be the Cenacle, a room located on the upper floor of a building in Jerusalem’s Old City. The building is now a holy site for both Christians and Jews, and it is visited by thousands of pilgrims each year. But you can stay at home and visit the site in the new game from Devir called Ierusalem. Yes, it is with an I.

Arranging a bookshelf is a personal preference, and in My Shelfie, it is all that matters. That and meeting specific goals. In real life, a bookshelf arrangement can depend on many factors, such as the size of the bookshelf, the number of books you have, and the type of books you have. Which is kind of what is needed in this game as well. Imagine that.

If you’re looking for a new collectible card game (CCG) to try, there are several options available on the market but sometimes there are ones that will fly under the radar. Worldbreakers might be one of them. Quick to play, ability to customize decks, and very straightforward in actions you perform. There is the battling against one another, but it isn’t like you are trying to defeat the other player’s hero.
