Death May Die
What we have been playing!?
(Roy) Gizmos, Thanos Rising, Dragon Castle
Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 144: Crystal Clans, Rising 5, Raiders of the North Sea, Prowler’s Passage
Episode 144 is a heavy game centric episode. We have gotten in plenty of games and with Episode 143 being about movies, we needed to make sure we talk about the games we played before we forgot what we had played. On top of the games, we also were visited by Bezier Games to demo their newest offerings. We sat down with Matt at our local game store Carolina Tabletop Games and he was patient with us while we did all we could to explore the new treasures he was putting on the table. We got the chance to play the expansion to Whistle Stop, which is still a favorite game of mine, the new social deduction/collection game Werebeast, One Week Ultimate Werewolf, which is on KS right now, and Werewords Deluxe, one of Marty’s favorites. Werebeast caught me off guard because I enjoy the hidden set collection type games and was pleasantly surprised how this game pulled it off. I am never keen on player elimination in a game, but for this game, it worked and after the first player was eliminated, the game soon came to an end, so there wasn’t much downtime and this was with a five player game.
The Rolistes Episode 28 (Part 1) – Globe-Trotting, Roleplaying & Coffee Roasting with François (with also a Lone Wolf Manly Baby Shower)
There and back again…
People come and go in London and we are happy to have François, our coffee roasting “One Ring” lore master, back among us. He is back after many adventures including a travel around the world with Anais (another tabletop RPG fan we miss) as documented in their Nays & Fox Travel Journal.
Meanwhile, while Persephelia was having her baby shower, we banded together with Haqadosch, Simon & Carlos to engage in much more macho activity.
Haqadosch popped open his “Lone Wolf Adventure Game” boxset by Cubicle 7 and we took on the green mantle of three brave Kai Lords, Brightshield, Nightfox and Moonblade, on their first mission.
I personally apologise, to Joe Joe Dever and to the devoted fans of Lone Wold series, for what followed.
