Chris does a LOT of the talking in this episode.  Yes, yes, we know what you’re thinking, “he always does a lot of the talking.”  But this time, it’s a LOT.  Anyway, he’s talking about FFG and what makes them FFG.  From the early days of TI1 to LCGs to Unique Games.  He covers it … Continue reading TGT 165: Fantasy Flight Games

This week we’re looking at the promises publishers make, and break.  Should Kickstarter exclusives stay exclusive forever?  Should publishers be punished for missing releases dates?  Should preorder windows stay open for the entire window even if stock runs out?  Maybe.  But maybe not… Email us at feedback@TabletopGameTalk.com – for questions and feedback.

This isn’t really our episode for this week.  Just a teaser since travel back from London is unpredictable.  But fear not, we will have the real episode up within the next 24 hours… Email us at feedback@TabletopGameTalk.com – for questions and feedback.

This week we talk about cash money, for winning.  And what that can do to a game.  We use KeyForge as an example since FFG recently announced a $100,000 cash event, but really this applies to all types of competitive games.  Does having cash prizes associated with a game make you more likely to play … Continue reading TGT 163 On Topic: Playing Games for Money

So this episode started out one way and ended up some place else.  Maybe we covered what we were going for (with our initial intro), or maybe we just covered how to be a dragon.  We’re not saying it’ll make sense after you listen, but at least the topic title will be explained… Email us … Continue reading TGT 161 On Topic: Living That Dragon Life

This week we talk about the value of playing games.  As in, is it worth it to pay for a DM to play D&D with?  What about paying for table space to play a board game?  If it comes with an instructor?  And finally, what about those games you have to keep paying for to … Continue reading TGT 160 On Topic: Paying to Play/Win

This week Kitty and Chris talk about notable designers and publishers.  It might be a conversation about what designers have changed the industry, or cause others to mimic them, or are recognizable by the rules of their game alone.  Or it might just be a conversation about some big names and how versatile they are… … Continue reading TGT 159 On Topic: Designers and Publishers

This week we’re talking about print and play games and why we never play them, but maybe should?  Also we discover Etsy is a good place to get other people to do all the work involved in printing out these games.  At least for one such game… Email us at feedback@TabletopGameTalk.com – for questions and … Continue reading TGT 158 On Topic: Print and Plays
