Hello Tuesday. Welcome to the work week proper. I actually had yesterday off, thanks to Veteran's Day. Still got some posts in, but now we've got a whole slate for you. And while at the moment, I'm listening to the GNR weather outside, I will swap over to some gaming podcasts afterward. Which podcasts?
Well, this week on the dial we have: Geeks of the North Episode 88: Game showcase brainstorm; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode: 73 Judge Dredd The Cursed Earth with Marc Langworthy; Tabletop Talk Episode 47: Seamus (Resurrectionist) Deep Dive with Steve Bynum; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 73: Tangura, Chakra & Trismegistus; Singled Out Episode 97: Season 4 Annual Review; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 184: Ankh’or, Stronghold Undead First Look, Warhammer Feast of Bones, Hako Onna, Terra Mystica Expansion, Mega Moose Con; The Secret Cabal Episode 194: Coloma and Game Terms, Buzzwords and The Way We Talk About Games; and The Offline Gamer Episode 43: A Chance and Counter.
This week, we brainstorm our upcoming game showcase format. Look at our poll to pick the first game in that serie. We also talk about the plinths Kickstarter by Frozen Ninja 3D, the Sugar Realms Kickstarter by Axolote Gaming, and the Dyniaq with Crossbow by Spellcrow.
So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!
This week, Morrus and Peter are joined by Marc Langworthy, Line Developer of Judge Dredd and the Worlds of 2000AD to talk about the new Judge Dredd book, The Cursed Earth! In the news, Wizards of the Coast has a new survey for D&D, a new D&D video game on its way, Pathfinder 2nd Edition gets its first errata, Call of Cthulhu jumps to second place in Roll20 user statistics, the original Forgotten Realms map, and more! Plus Our Favorite Game in All the World and a brand new sketch!
Join Craig as his guest, Steve Bynum, reveals how to get the most from Seamus and the Red Chapel crew. What models make up the core crew? What models does he bring in for certain pools? What strategies does this crew excel in? How can someone beat them? If you play against Seamus and miss the last segment you'll take a secret passage to Losing Town.
Steve has been sent a mystery package by Board & Dice, so sit back with your favourite tipple as we describe all. We’ll also have our usual round up of the latest tabletop gaming news and in depth chat about the board games we’ve been playing.
This week all four members of the PHC crew have been sunning it in Tungaru, the latest kickstarter from Alley Cat Games and Steve and Andy get alchemy confused with worshipping in Trismegistus: The Ultimate Formula.
Is Rory's mic still working?
Andrew, Steve and Daniel Harwood talk about Season 4 a year on, they discuss the state of the game and how the game has progressed.
In this fine episode, we revisit some of our adventures at Marty’s annual BooBQ party and the local con that Mark Kale hosts, Mega Moose Con. During these events, we got to the table a brand new game from Space Cowboys that has found its way onto our shelves and might even be that filler that will be the go to when the chance presents itself. I am talking about Ankh’or and if you looking for a light Splendor type game, give this a try.
We also got to play a proto copy of Stronghold Undead and we give our first thoughts on this game that we have been waiting for for a few years. More on that because Ignacy will be joining us on a later show to give us some more intelligent thoughts than what we can supply.
Adam comes back to the show to share his thoughts on Warhammer’s new Feast of Bones box. He and Marty go all miniature and give the details on what is included in this expansion and their thoughts on if you need to add this to your Warhammer collection.
In episode 194, The gang starts out by discussing Jamie's new hobby of Resin 3D printing and jump into a bunch of games we've been playing including Clank! Legacy Acquisition Incorporated, Crown of Emara, Deep Blue, Rurik: Dawn of Kiev, Ecos: The First Continent and Awkward Guests and a few games of yesteryear including Ethnos and Pursuit of Happiness. Then Don and Jamie give a feature review of the newest game from Jonny Pac Cantin, Coloma! Then Tony T throws out a full rundown of the most important tabletop gaming news of the day while the peanut gallery quacks in the background. Then finally the Founders discuss Game Terms, buzzwords and other nonsensical ways that we all talk about the games we play.
In this episode, we chat to Steve from Chance and Counters.
Matt also talks for quite a while about what he's been playing during the rainy evenings after work, and we take a look at one of the less 'slapped together' satire games currently on Kickstarter.
