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.

Having not learned from his last appearance or he has a short memory, Rob Daviau, designer of countless games and co-designer behind the #1 game on Boardgamegeek, has returned to the our show to discuss his next game Seafall. We all know that Rob is known for his Legacy series style games, but little did he know that this game design was going to be his legacy. What you may not be aware of is that Rob's hobby is cooking and he steps us through how to prepare steak with a perfectly rare center to a seared crust on the outside.

CMON Expo in Atlanta, GA is a great small con and we could not have been happier to have been able to attend this year. Between getting to play all the new cool Cool Mini or Not games and prototypes, we got to hang out with great designers, podcasters and Rodney Smith. What is great about the small con is the level of personalization you can experience while there. You can actually relax and enjoy your surroundings and never feel like you need to rush here and there. And the location was top notch with great dining nearby, easy to access transportation, and The World of Coca-Cola.

It has been a year since we did the last summer movie preview show with Dan Patriss and Chris Kirkman. Funny how that works. Anyway, while the show has some very interesting board gaming information at the start, we spend the majority of the time talking about the upcoming 2016 summer movies. We know, we know, we are a board gaming podcast, but this is always one of our favorite shows to do. It is always fun to just hear everyone's different perspectives on the upcoming releases.

Two reviews in this episode along with 2 minute discussions mostly on Kickstarter stuff. The first review is on the 9th expansion for the deck building game Ascension, called Dreamscape. We know there are people out there that enjoy talking it down, but it gets love here at Rolling Dice & Taking Names. For Tony, it is the only game that he is constantly playing on his Ipad, next to Cookie Jam. For Marty, it is a deck builder that he can appreciate, even though the art isn't to his liking.
