Dice Tower Network Podcast: Meeple Overboard
Meeple Overboard Episodes
The one, the only Ruel Gaviola joins us today. Ruel is a media personality in the gaming hobby whose credits go far and wide, including Geek and Sundry and I Slay the Dragon, as well as podcasting and live-streaming. He's also a member of the committee for the American Table Top Awards, so we're here to talk about what the awards are, some of the winners, and more about him as a gamer too. Hope you enjoy. Or else!
We were joined this episode by Stephen Buonocore, president of Stronghold Games and de facto spokesperson for Indie Game Studios. We have him on to talk about his involvement as president of a successful game studio, roll and write games, and some great things he's doing to stay connected to the community during the ongoing shutdowns.
It's been two years since we first got to try two pretty big games, Dinosaur Island and Brass Birmingham. How do they stack up now? Worth giving a listen probably!
February of 2020 was a fantastic month for gaming because it features our favorite convention, Dice Tower West. It's convenient that our home grown convention has grown into a nice size convention with plenty of days of gaming. Plus, we also talk about some of the other games we played this last month. Hope you're all staying safe out there, and hope our episodes are a nice distraction from everything else going on in the world right now.
We're joined by a member of Chris' famed Wednesday Game Group, Karlo Arciaga. On top of being boring in real life as a physical therapist, he also is the primary board game teacher in the group, so we talk about trying to be a good quality teacher including the study, preparation, and execution of a good teach!
Greg Dickson from the excellent Hooked on Geek podcast is on today's episode! We talk about our experience together at Dice Tower West and take on the 3 o'clock in the morning topic of social pressures while gaming! Nothing could possibli go wrong. *Possibly. Weird. That's the first thing that's ever gone wrong...
Oops, this is posted kinda late, but, catch up with the games we explored during the month of January 2020. It's the start of a new year, and a darn good one at that! Enjoy
Episode 158 is ready to launch! We're exhausted from Dice Tower West, which we'll talk about next week probably.
Sickness, strange work schedules, and other such surprises have left us with little time to prep an episode, so, we did one completely on the fly! We decided to press record and see where it went. Hope you enjoy this one, as it's a first. But, it turned out pretty well, methinks.
Kanban EV is on Kickstarter by Eagel Gryphon Games, so, how's abouts we review this old klunker of a game? Is it a good one? Is it complicated? Is it fun? Well, come along and check out our thoughts on this game getting a deluxe reprint. Also, we compare some of our thoughts on gaming from 2018 into 2019, and also, what the heck is Widdershins?
