Running a little late today because I got those famous words at work. “They changed the launch date.” Fun, fun, fun. But that’s as may be. Over here, it’s time to get you some gaming podcasts to listen to. I needed time to slow down, but these can help your week hopefully speed up a little. This week on the dial we have:
D&Deep dive into some RPGs
The UK Games Expo 2023 is only a few days away and we are very excited! So listen along as we discuss the board games, tabletop miniatures games, RPGs, publishers and events that have got us giddy with anticipation.
For more details go to https://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/
We will be hosting The Polyhedron Collider Podcast – LIVE! in the NEC Piazza 4 (The Dice Room) on Saturday at 10am.
Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 59.
In this very not safe for work episode, Tim takes another sick day and we give him all sorts of crap for it, Jean takes a trip down memory lane and ends up weasing the juice, and we take an impromptu trip to the bowels of Uranus.
Then, Lathan recaps his recent titillating trip to Exxxotica, we find out that Jean is quite the authority on leather and BDSM, and Dave thinks nothing really says romance like needing to throw a tarp down first.
And finally, Shut Up and Take My Money gets kinky and builds an Empire, Geeky Jean revisits Uranus, and Celebrity Deathmatch takes a moustache ride and ends up covered in Jello.
Oh, and don’t forget about Tim’s Sack. This one will likely ruin your childhood.. Sorry..
HEY OH! It’s time for some more Secret Cabal in your life. Today the gang goes bananas outta the game and gets into some games they’ve been playing including Thunder Road Vendetta, Nemesis: Lockdown, New York 1901, Dead by Daylight: The Boardgame, Galaxy Trucker and feature Simone Luciani and Nestore Mangone’s newest masterpiece, Darwin’s Journey. Then after Tony T gives us what he does best – the official tabletop gaming news, the gang digs into a discussion about games that fired other games and feature some Cabalist thoughts!
Volcanoes on islands are quite common and can be found in various parts of the world. Islands are often formed by volcanic activity, either as a result of tectonic plate movements or hotspots in the Earth’s mantle. But in the game Oros, you are the creator of volcanoes and land coming together. You are doing all this so your demi-god is praised and you are the extreme knowledgeable one. This game from Lucky Duck is one that will challenge you and your pals because it is deceptive in strategy, cooperation and even some take that as you battle for limited opportunity to gain the end goal of being the most knowledgeable.
We also continue our adventure into the war games with a classic, Maria. Based on recommendation by some very influential people, Marty picked up a copy off of Ebay. At first, was a bit concerned due to the length of the game, but the play was smooth and the rules easy to follow. If you are into these war style of games, you have gotten to play it well before us. If you haven’t, then you might want to seek it out.
A deck builder that requires you to actually pay attention to the cards you are getting from the market. That is what Kamigami requires due to the chaining of cards. This was refreshing to deal with and if you need another deck builder in your life, give it a test run. We did struggle at the end to get to the final end game, but that just might be due to our lack of familiarity with the card combos which you need to understand in these games.
