Tuesday. Another day closer to the weekend. And I got a new Goliath die from Kraken Dice yesterday, because I don't have a problem and I can stop whenever I want. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice
Anyway, to help speed things along to the weekend, there's always gaming podcasts. As usual, there's a bunch, so let's get into it.
Today on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode #44: U2 Danger at Dunwater; Geeks of the North Episode 70: Grumpisode; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 60: Donning the Purple, Treasure Island and Charterstone; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 265: Salute 2019; Tabletop Talk Episode 18: Why Craig (and you) Should be Playing Warhammer Underworlds; The D6 Generation Pip 17: Emergent Narratives Thanks to Great Mechanics; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 169: Fifth Annual Screening, Streaming, or Steaming Summer Movie Preview; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 145: Tudor; and The Secret Cabal Episode 181: Kingsport Festival, Civilization A New Dawn and A Short Topic Extravaganza.
This week, Morrus and Peter take a look at the second part of the original Saltmarsh adventures, U2 Danger at Dunwater, in preparation for the release of Dungeons & Dragons Ghosts of Saltmarsh. In the news, we have a new deck of monster cards for D&D, new Acquisitions Inc. art, #DnDSelfie, Shadowrun 30th Anniversary products, new Star Trek Adventures products, and a LOT more plus Our Favorite Game in All the World, and a brand-new user-submitted sketch!
This week, we ramble on while Paul is grumpy about model quality and Antoine has more hobby and games done in a week than the last month or two. We then briefly look at the highlights of the Adepticon swagbag. We also talk about the Veteran Stalkers by Puppets War, and Soma Moon Ray by Neko Galaxy. So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!
After spending his time in the garden, Andy joins Steve to discuss his hooky copy of Terraforming Mars, the latest news and the current crop of games at their table.
They stab the emperor in Donning the Purple, search for lost gold in Treasure Island and provide a spoiler free review of Charterstone, the legacy game from Stonemaier Games. They then cast off the spoiler shackles and have an in depth discussion of the Charterstone game.

Jason Murray (from the Battlemallet podcast) and Jimmy try to convince Craig that he should be playing Warhammer Underworlds by Games Workshop. Jason and Jimmy make their case based on the game's theme, play mechanics and hobby opportunities.
Craig and Russ discuss the emergent narrative campaign that occurred thanks to the brilliant in game mechanics and background of Song of Ice and Fire from Cool Mini or Not.
The 5th Annual Movie Show with our good buddies Dan Patriss and Chris Kirkman. This is going to be a big summer of movies and we wish we had enough time to cover all the summer releases, but that would be a six hour show. Instead, we only looked at those movies that were nationwide releases, not limited releases. Then we had to take that list and shorten it up even more by voting on them so we could get it down to a manageable amount. There are so many good releases early in the summer that many of the releases in August just didn’t make the cut.
Will give a spoiler here, we didn’t have that many steaming picks this year like in previous years. Hope you enjoy the episode and we will return in our next episode with more gaming discussions.
During this weeks episode:
1) The Pegs discuss their recent game plays including Paladins of the West Kingdom, Donning the Purple, Guardian’s Call and many more;
2) All the Pegs review the action selection game Tudor; and
3) Look back at Heroes of Land, Air, and Sea.
