It is time yet again for a slice of tabletop gaming chat as the boys explore the latest miniatures game from Fantasy Flight Games Runewars, get all depressed by This War of Mine and explore the latest Kickstarters with our thoughts on Burning Rome and Star Scrappers Cave In.
We also discuss the latest news about Talisman and organising a Dungeons and Dragons session.

This week the boys are up to their usual nonsense. Robert continues to plow through his backlog of PDFs, and accidentally reveals the reason he didn’t want to cover the Midgard Campaign Setting. Meanwhile Jonathan’s plans of playing RPGs with his kids slowly come together, and he went out to see a movie. All this plus the usual assortment of news, one Kickstarter, and shenanigans, this week on the Forgot My Dice podcast!
…and we are back. Joe and Adam return after a short hiatus to discuss various topics, with a recap of the Ultimate Team Showdown team tournament in Newton MA, USA. A few other events are discussed but Adam dives into some of his games and reviews the format of UTS and how it compares to things like the International Team Tournament he attended in the UK back in May. Sit back and relax this is a 2+ hour episode filled with the usual antics!

In this episode Andrew talks to DC about the new errata, what models it affects and why the changes were made.
Jack talks with the podfather himself, Stephen Buonocore. Stephen’s company Stronghold has published many of our favorite games, including Terraforming Mars, Space Cadets Dice Duel, and La Granja. We talk about podcasting, beer, conventions, and how great of a community and industry tabletop gaming is.
Our brave podcast co-hosts return, recovering from a busy work week, to weigh in on news from Games Workshop and Lock & Load 2017. Simon updates us on finishing up his Primaris Marines painting projects, and Laurie gets distracted by Guild Ball and Netrunner. Ed Bourelle of SkeletonKey Games joins the duo to discuss his passion for producing high quality accessories for elevating the tabletop gaming experience, then regales all with some fantastic adventures during his time as Creative Director for Privateer Press. Laurie shares some thoughts on hobby life with a discourse about paint brushes. To wrap up, Simon and Laurie both think Glow is pretty darn cool. Thanks to awesome listener questions, the pair ponder what intellectual properties would make for kickass miniatures games.
Lindsey Rode, of Dog Might Games, joins us in the third chair!
Up first we learn about Lindsey’s origin story: How did she get into the industry and eventually land the sweet Valkyrie gig at Dog Might.
Then later the three of us examine how and why gamers like to bling out their games.

Bryce and Phil run down the latest in Guild Ball errata and Phil learns that thing is called “table-topping” which seems like an appropriate effect for a minis game.

For the feature part of our show, we talk to Lewis Clark from Troll Trader about the relaunch of Carnevale – a skirmish wargame set in the streets of 18th Century Venice – which is currently funding a new 2-player starter box set on Kickstarter.
