Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Long View

The Long View is a podcast designed to take a closer, more critical look at the games we play. Each episode will focus on a single game. The game will be one that the podcasters will have played many, many times. The purpose is to provide a forum for those who want to know what a game reveals after multiple plays. Discussion will focus on the game play itself. It will not be a description of the rules of the game. Rather, it will be an in depth exploration of the merits or flaws of the game that become apparent when it it played multiple times. Thanks for listening!

Anthony and Jason finally settle down for a chat about games, just the two of them. Nice to get back to our roots .

Animal Kingdoms, currently on Kickstarter, is the very first game from the new collaborative company, Galactic Raptor Games. The co-founders of Galactic Raptor, Carla Kopp and Dan Letzring, drop by to chat about the accessible nature of its card play, as well as the solo mode. Carla and Dan also chat about why they came together to form Galactic Raptor.

Stay tuned for the aftershow in this one! We get into some predictions for 2019, including a desire to see more diverse, off-the-beaten path games and what both Carla and Dan are doing to make that happen.

Happy New Years, everyone! Our number one wish here at ENGN is to get more and more games that color outside of the lines, so to speak. New and different games makes the gaming hobby better all around. 

To that end, we gathered three designers of games with very non-traditional themes to share their thoughts - Elizabeth Hargrave, designer of Wingspan; Sarah Reed, designer of Oaxaca: Crafts of a Culture; and R. Eric Reuss, designer of Spirit Island.

Last year, we went to PAX Unplugged in Philadelphia, where we had a lot of fun, played a lot of games, and gathered clips from various attendees who spoke about the show. This year, we have two episodes for you! More games, more clips, and more coverage of the only convention that Jason gets to go to all year (hooray for newborns...).
