Tuesday. We've made it into the real meat of the work week. Hopefully, yours has gotten off to a good start. Mine's been comfortably busy. So, that should make it go by quickly. You know what will also help? Some gaming podcasts to listen to while proofing. This week on the dial we have:
Aliens: Another Glorious Day in the Corps! is a co‑operative survival board game in which you and your team of specialist Colonial Marines will gear up with serious firepower and head into Hadley's Hope to find survivors and answers. But you're not alone. To survive, you'll need to work together, keep your cool, and stay frosty to fight off relentless Xenomorph ambushes and get out of there alive. Players can play up to six different missions, taking them into different areas from the Hadley’s Hope terraforming facility to the deep, dark recesses of an xenomorph nest. Aliens also offers an exciting campaign mode to play four of the missions linked together, so players will need to fight relentless xenomorph attacks and keep each other alive all the way to the end of the campaign. The remaining two missions are purely about survival, it’s kill or be killed. The players are dropped into the game with nothing more than a pistol. They will need to scavenge weapons and gear while hordes of Xenomorph aliens are trying to get at them. How long can you survive against the odds?
For Episode 16 of the EDR Podcast, Andy and Josh dig into all of the juicy Dystopian Wars 3.0 announcements Warcradle has recently made. Later, they discuss how the Firestorm Armada Beta rules are progressing.
It's interviewer turned interviewee this episode, as for a change Matt is the one in the spotlight as Bez asks all the questions.
An episode that is full of games, family, and Dew. Yeap, we got a taste test for you. It seems Mt. Dew released a new favor called Major Melon and we had to give it a try. I would have thought they would have held off until the summer because it is based on a watermelon flavor, but they didn’t ask our opinion. Hope you get a chance to try it, because it different.
From the game standpoint, we got games we enjoyed to the table, a game that is just silly fun, and one we disagree on. The later is an example where a mechanic, no matter how good the game is, isn’t something you would enjoy. We all have those games and that is what is great about board games. If one doesn’t float your boat, there only a gazillion more out there that might. Face facts, there is a game you really enjoy and others dislike. But that is okay because there is one where everybody likes it. So, find that game and have an fun, relaxing night because you deserve it.
The Connell boys have returned and share their opinions on a game and keep their father straight. What is it about our kids, they just love to torment and make fun of us when they come on the show. I guess that is why people enjoy them participating.
Thank you for listening and please be safe and well
