Tuesday. I mean, it's not Monday, so it's not all bad, but we're still just right at the beginning of the week. But, it's also the start of October. So we've got that going for us. October and November are my two favorite months, so I'm all for cooler temperatures (though here in Atlanta, "High 90, Low 70" just seems to be what we're going to have until January...) and my two favorite holidays. But before we can get to those, we just need to finish out the week. Let's help things along with our weekly podcasts.
On the dial we have: Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 181: Marvel Champions, Pax Pamir, Eternal, Sorcerer, War Chest Expansion; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 70: Dungeons & Dragons and tabletop RPGs; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 67: Vast Kaviya for D&D 5e with Mike Myler; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 37: Quit Clownin’ Around!; Tabletop Talk Episode 41: Charles Hoffman (Arcanist) Deep Dive with Matt Lewin; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 27:7Supersystem; The Offline Gamer Episode 42: Indoor Tranquility; The Secret Cabal Express Epsidoe 52: Aeronautica Imperialis Miniatures Games; and The D6 Generation Pip Episode 28: Achievements in Gaming Sept 2019.
Lots of card games were covered in this episode and that includes one of the biggest that will be coming out in the fourth quarter, Marvel Champions from Fantasy Flight Games. Marvel Champions is a coop living card game that pits players against a single villian who has a scheme that will create havoc for the hereos, or just simply rob a bank. A villian has to eat. If you enjoy Living Card Games, get your preorder in. One thing we state on the podcast that needs to be written is that the core set has everything you need to get you playing, unlike the previous LCGs where you had to buy additional copies of the core box to get additional copies of certain cards. Thank you Fantasy Flight for coming to your senses and including all we need in the core set.
War Chest Nobility expansion got an early play. Why is that game so enjoyable to play? Maybe it is the speed of play, the depth of strategy, or the constant battle of the hard decisions that you have to make. If War Chest is making it to the table, then go ahead and plan on this expansion because it gives you more decision points during your play.
