Tuesday. The work week is going along at a good clip. I don't know about you, but my Monday went by in a flash. I remember looking at the clock and going, "Damn! It's already 2pm!"
But that just means the weekend is coming quickly. I've got D&D coming up, so I'm excited. Now, to make the week continue to go along quickly. We've got our podcasts for you to listen to while working.
This week on the dial we have: Game Classy Episode 199: Return to the Old World; Lords of the Dungeon Episode 33: Tremulus, Collaborative Story Telling, When to Goof Off and Writing Backstories; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 185: Tabletop Showcase – Klaus and Benny Teuber; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 159: Rune Stones; and Tabletop Talk Episode 48: Malifaux Path to Podium: 2019 Russian Nationals.
As the title states
In episode 33, The lords start by discussing Tremulus, a story telling role playing game of Lovecratian inspired horror and transition into collaborative story telling in modern RPGs. Then the gang takes a question from a listener regarding when it's okay to goof off and when it's time to get down to business. And lastly, the Lords talk about creating a back story for their character, the ways they go about it and what's important to them.
As part of the Tabletop Showcase Event, we have the honor of talking with Klaus and Benny Teuber. There isn’t a lot of introduction needed here or explanation who they are. It is almost fair to say that if you play board games, own board games, or walk down an aisle with board games, you will see the Teuber name. Do I really need to spell out it for you? Fine, Catan.
Do want to point out that the interview was shorter than we wanted, but we had to catch them between their engagements at Essen. We had too many questions and just hope that we asked ones you would be interested in. We played RDTN Rank’em, which we do with our first time guests, and pay attention because you might get some valuable insight for how to play your next Catan game.
Finally, Marty and I talk about the re-release of Starfarers and our experience. Neither of us have played before and our going in thoughts did not match our thoughts coming out of the play.
1) The Pegs discuss their recent game plays including Disney Villainous, Circadians: First Light, a Harper’s Bazaar, Bosk and many more;
2) All the Pegs review the deckbuilding game Rune Stones; and
3) Look back at Feudum.
Join Craig and his guests, Nikolay Galeev, Cris Govyazon and Dmitrii Kevorkov, as they explain how they ended up on the podium for the 2019 Russian Nationals GT. They discuss, round-by-round, what they brought to the table, what they faced up against and how they came out on top. We also spend time talking about Malfaux in Russia and their thoughts on M3e.
