We’re firmly on our way into the new work week. And, of course, I’m looking forward to the weekend. The past couple have been pretty busy, so I think I’m gonna take it easy this upcoming Saturday. Might still get some gaming in, though. We’ll see. But before that, we need to actually get to the weekend. To help the time go by, here’s some gaming podcasts for you to listen to.

Here’s the FINAL part of our episode recorded at the UK Games Expo. At Last! Thanks again to the fans supporting the show via Patreon and unlocking that UKGE goal.
It’s time to get excited about Essen Spiel and so the boys try and keep it clean and family friendly. Unfortunately, a request for Polyhedron Collider to review adult products leads to a discussion of said products and things evolve into childish giggling.
We do however get a chance to play ‘game of the year’ contender Clans of Caledonia, dice placement fantasy game Monster-Lands and talk about the Stranger Things inspired two-player card game Inbetween. We also then take our pick of the most interesting games to play and buy at Essen.
Warning: This podcast contains strong language and adult content.
This time around, Josh and Andy were able to get Stuart from Warcradle Studios on the show! Warcradle recently purchased the intellectual property rights for the Firestorm, Dystopian, and Uncharted Seas settings. In a wide-ranging interview, Josh and Andy talk to Stuart about where Warcradle plans to take the various settings and games in the future. Will there be a new version of Firestorm Armada or Dystopian Wars? Will Uncharted Seas rise again? Will there be a revived Vanguard program? Tune in to find out!
Michael Coe comes on the show to talk about the brand new Tiny Epic Defenders 2nd Edition and The Dark War expansion, both on Kickstarter right now. We cover topics ranging from equipable meeples, design challenges, upcoming projects, reflections of a veteran kickstarter-superstar, and company goals for Gamelyn Games. This is Michael’s second time on the show, and is one of Jack’s favorite people in the board game space.
No time stamps for this episode due to the quick turnaround.
This month the crew talks about playing games on Tabletopia and gives their initial impressions of Massive Darkness and Dinosaur Island. In the main topic, the guys argue for the five games that they would save from their collections.
This week, we chat about the epic Saga Storm event this year!
Today Bender and Jess talk about their Ravenloft Masque of the Red Death Pirate Campaign and their upcoming Song of Ice and Fire campaign. We take a topic from the listeners regarding applying existing intellectual properties to RPG game systems. And finally talk about their upcoming Dark Earth 1899 campaign and discuss their initial thoughts and experiences with Fate Core System.
