Dice Tower Network Podcast: Rolling Dice & Taking Names

Rolling Dice & Taking Names is a podcast where two seasoned tabletop gamers have discussions about board games, RPGs, and miniatures that are entertaining and informative to casual gamers and experienced hobbyists alike. The level of conversation would be similar to friends sitting around the kitchen table playing the latest game, discussing their likes and dislikes of a style of game, or just trying to make sense of the latest gaming news. In addition, special guests add their gaming knowledge to help the hosts sound more credible. Family friendly, informative and always striving to be entertaining.

To get in the mood for Halloween, we played two Cthulhu based games this month. First up was Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu by Asmodee games. This is a re-theme of the original Pandemic that has really been streamlined. We had heard that they had done this, but until we sat down and played it, didn't realize just how much was removed. The trading is simpler, the use of cards to create effects when "outbreaks" occurs is a nice added feature, and the ease of travel helps getting around the map quicker. However, these changes don't make this an easier game.

This might be unprecedented with four "reviews" in one show and the length is just barely over an hour. So, it is possible to compress goodness into a small package. Plus we got some squirrels to let out and discuss with everyone. We know that miniature games like Warmachine, Guild Ball and Tanks is not everyone's cup of tea, but if you have been thinking about trying out a miniature game, hopefully, we gave you enough insight to help you start digging into something. Those of you that got the Kickstarter copy of Empires, you will not be disappointed with your purchase.
