We've made it into the work week proper. It's Tuesday and that means the weekend is getting closer. For those here in the US, that means Labor Day is coming up. Time for the last summer beach trip. And, for those of us here in the Southeast, that means Dragon*Con. Personally, I will be staying OTP this upcoming weekend, but I know a lot of friends that are going. Either way, it's time to listen to some gaming podcasts.
Today on the dial we have: Chance of Gaming Episode 36; The Secret Cabal Episode 189: Era Medieval Age, The Reckoners, Gen Con 2019 and a Short Topic Extravaganza; Tabletop Talk Episode 36: McCabe (Ten Thunders) Deep Dive with Robert and Alyx; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 153: The Artemis Project; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 62: 2000AD, Devil’s Run, and Kings of War with Marc Langworthy; and Game Classy Episode 194: He-Man Crisis Protocol.
in which we talk about Kubb, Gloomhaven, Rick Loomis, what we played and news of the week
In episode 189 we start out with a big announcement that will take the show to a new level of awesome! Then we go through our Gen Con 2019 retrospective featuring Steve's first impressions, scooters, sunlight killing mold and bacteria, and more. Then we dive deep into Matt Leacock's newest design, Era: Medieval Age. Then we have a double feature look back of both Thunderstone Quest and The Reckoners. Then Tony T gives us a tour through all of the board game media news while we chirp in the background. And finally, we host another Short Topic Extravaganza featuring the waning of our gaming enthusiasm, gaming with fictional and historical characters and gaming with designer commentary.
