In this Halloween themed episode we talk about gaming superstitions and how they've effected us and groups we've been part of.
In this very special epsidoe we sit down with Todd Rowland from AEG. He was kind enough to geek out with us for a while about all the awesome things they're doing.
Some of the great topics in our discussion:
- Love Letter
- Card of the Dead
- Cheaty Mages
- Legend of the Five Rings
- Legend of the Five Rings: Walt Disney World Kotei 2014
We want to thank Todd again for his time, it was great to have him on.
In this episode we sit down and discuss large group games, and we give our own personal top ten list. For a few we didn't have a common point of reference so we presented a few options.
Our Top Ten Party Games
- #10a: Liar's Dice
- #10b: Walking Dead Card Game
- #9: Tsuro
- #8: Flapjacks and Sasquatches
- #7: 7 Wonders
- #6: Kill the Overlord
- #5a: Dixit
- #5b: Badass Zombie Killers
- #4: Munchkin
- #3: The Resistance
- #2: Cards Against Humanity
- #1: Red Dragon Inn
We also have one honorable mention due to it's sheer capacity to sit players: Village Wolves.
We again try something different, and this time maybe we shouldn't have, but we did it anyway.
We tried to sit down together and actually play a game of the DC Deck-builder from Cryptozoic as we reviewed it. The review went off well enough, but the sound quality was definitely subpar.
Timing Apology: We are again needing to apologize about the tardiness of this episode. Life got the better of us for the last few weeks, and we didn't post, despite having episode 13 and 14 recorded. We're back to our normal schedule now though, and we're back with big plans over the next few weeks.
Audio Quality Note: Due to the experimental nature of what we did in this episode, the sound quality was not up to our usual standards. Before we attempt any more episodes like this we will be revamping the setup to allow for better sound quality.
VERY LIMITED Follow up:
On the box itself and its quality Tim gave it 3 Pows and Bryan gave it 4 Pows
On game mechanics Bryan decided it was worth either 3.5 or 4 BAMFS, while Tim thinks it's a solid 4 BAMFS.
Both Tim and Bryan gave it a complete 5 KERSPLATS for how completely accessible the game is.
Overall though, all things considered, Bryan gave the game 4 KaPOWS, and Tim believed it should receive 4.5 KaPOWS!
If you haven't had a chance to pick it up yet, you should definitely find a copy and go for a spin.
Ok, so we said we wouldn't follow up with Part 2, but we decided to anyway.
In this unexpected continuation of our RPG Deconstruction up we finish talking about magic and power levels.
Timing Apology: We both want to say we're sorry about this episode being posted late. Please know that real life circumstances were exceptional, and we'll be making every effort to avoid this going forward.
Audio Quality Note: Unfortunately there are a few spots where Tim's Cable company decided he should be auto tunned during the Skype Call. I don't think they did a very good job, hopefully they won't do it again next week.
