The week continues along. We’ve made it to Tuesday. I hope your week started off alright. The cold, blustery Monday has turned into a warmer Tuesday morning. Also, when I went out to my car yesterday, I realized my normally blue car had a distinctly yellow/green/gold tinge to it. Yes, I’ve seen some of it hanging around for a while, but the real pollen season looks like it’s starting. Best idea is to stay inside, make sure the air filters are fresh, and watch the pollen haze blow by outside. Best to listen to some podcasts while we wait for this to blow over (literally).

We have an announcement to make. While we are very sad to see Funagain’s online store slowly close and support of the show stop, we are happy to announce that Miniature Market is picking us up as one of our sponsors. Marty and I couldn’t be happier about this and what it will mean for our listeners. Miniature Market has committed to us support for our contest and ways for a listeners to save money throughout the year. Matter of fact, if you visit this link, you will find a special discount code to enter during checkout. Who knows where this will end up, but we are very excited to have Miniature Market as a sponsor of RDTN. Not sure I used the link enough, so here it is again.
When was the last time you encountered a game and you finished the play and were not sure what just happened at the table? I had that experience with Noria from Stronghold Games. This is not to say it was bad thing that happened at the table, don’t get me wrong. It was just different, which can be exciting in today’s world of board gaming. Here was a game that took a core mechanic that I enjoy, engine building, and put it on its ear with three turning gears. We have played some tough games over the past year, but this one caught me by surprise. Reading the rules, didn’t seem to be anything special. Watching the videos, nothing jumped out at me. But once I was in charge of my own economic gear machine, it got very real. But once you solve the engine part, you now need to think about how to get the scoring done for a win because others can really mess with your strategy, so you need to be adaptable. Try this game, even if you are not a fan of engine builders, it might surprise you.
We also talk about the new expansion Clank!, The Mummy’s Curse by Renegade Game Studios. I enjoy base Clank!, even though I think it is lacking when it comes to being able to cull your deck of unwanted cards, but I really like Clank! In! Space!. So was curious if The Mummy’s Curse was going to add enough to base Clank! to make it the game to play of the series.
Aron West, master of the Catacombs is back to talk about everything from the small-yet-mighty standalone game Catacombs Conquest to how to handle production SNAFUs to talking about what cool ideas might be on the horizon for this series of dextrous delight on the horizon.
Ross Watson, 40k fluffmaster, is back in the third chair!
Up first we catch up with Ross and find out what is this brand new Warhammer 40,000 RPG he’s been working on: Wrath and Glory.
Later Ross, Craig, and Russ take a close look at the recently re-released Necrumunda by Games Workshop. Is this thing more than just nostalgia?
