In this show, we take a look at Saloon Tycoon, Habitats, Morpheus, and Dale of Merchants 2. We hear a different type of Tale of Awkwardness, here from Board Game Gumbo, Bonus Action, GameTek, Cult of the Old, Board Game Biopsy, and Sweet Spot. We answer a pile of questions including breaking into a new game group, and end the show discussing how we can get others to play the games we want.
In this show, we talk about Escape Room: the Game, Glux, Honshu, Arkham Horror: the Card Game, Escape from Colditz, and Hanamikoji. We talk about BGG.con, hear a very awkward Tale, and end the show with our top ten games that it seems everyone has forgotten but us.
Folks, this is a special episode, one I didn't put together. It's from Nights at the Game Table, which can be found here:
It's about the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund, and one person that we were able to help and their story. I hope you find it interesting.
In this show, we talk about Mechs vs Minions, Not Alone, OctoDice, Ghostbusters: Protect the Barrier, 4 Gods, Seafall, Star Wars Destiny, and Blood Bowl. Geoff talks about the electoral college, we hear a tale of Horror and about worker placement, and end the show answering a pile of your questions!
In this episode, we talk about Conan, Aeon’s End, Pandemic The Cure: Experimental Meds, DrachenTurm, and Scythe. There is a Board Game Gumbo, Cult of the Old, and a Tale of Amazement. Finally, we end the show with our favorite "Next Step" Games, games after the introductory games to the hobby.
Also, at the beginning of the show, we talk about the future of the Dice Tower!
In this episode, we talk about Hamsterbande, JurassAttack, Animals on Board, Warquest, the Dominion Upgrades, and Grand Prix. We also hear from some contributors, answer a pile of questions, and end the show with our thoughts on sports vs. games!
In this show, we talk about Great Western Trail, Adrenaline, Islebound, Power Grid: The Card Game, Chromosome, and Terraforming Mars. We also hear the history of Acquire, talk about our Essen 2016 experiences, and end with our top ten games to use to entice video gamers into the hobby. Again.
Note: We recorded in a room with a lot of echo, thus you'll notice that in the recording. Not much we could do about it, sorry!
Tom, Eric, Sam, Zee, and more join together to talk about some interesting games we saw at the Spiel Fair at Essen. We then do a rousing game of Stronghold vs. Iello Family Feud, then answer some questions live.
Thanks to IELLO for sponsoring the room!
