Episode: RDTN Episode 98: Cry Havoc, The Walking Dead – No Sanctuary, Sadler Brothers and Ignacy ( 72.1 MB / 78:40)
In this episode, we have two interviews with game designers. Our first is with the brother design team, Adam and Brady Sadler. They were on our show in Episode 79 discussing Warhammer Quest and not having learned their lesson, returned again to talk with us about their new project The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary. This project is currently running on Kickstarter until 8/1 and has made it to the lofty goal of a quarter of a million dollars. One of the neat aspects of this KS is that Cryptozoic is offering you two price points to buy this game. One with minis and one without. It would be nice if more publishers would give us that option when buying. It is very hard for some of us to drop $120 on a game with minis and not have any idea if we will like it. By giving us the option to by the standees version and then possibly get the minis later, more might be willing to take a chance on the game. Now, we understand that the Cryptozoic IP games have had some challenges, but with the Sadler team behind this one, there is hope that this will be a big success. We then drove down to Atlanta to see our good buddy, Ignacy Trzewiczek. He was kind enough to spend over 10 hours with us playing all types of games. More importantly, we got to experience the Cry Havoc game that is coming out at Gen Con. The miniatures are great, the art is outstanding, and the gameplay is solid. And even though it was late, we got to try out First Martians. While the game is some months away, the demo gave us the feel of how it mimics Robinson, but we could see the improvements that will be coming. Oh, and Steve Avery was there as well :) Please be sure to enter our contests for the Scott King Gaming Calendar and the Gale Force Nine Tyrants of the Underdark.    Related Stories

Episode: Boardgames To Go 164 - Managing the Hoard (with Greg Wilzbach) ( 22.47 MB / 65:23)

Openers: Evolution, Bruges/The Last Spike/Treasure Hunter (also EsCon)

I know this is a subject that resonates with many gamers--having too many games. How many is too many? It differs for everyone. Even the reason to think about "too many" games differs for many people. In my case, it's a physical limitation of storage space. For other folks, it's about saving money (or using proceeds from game sales to buy new stuff). For still others, they want to focus on playing old favorites more & more, less focus on the latest new thing. I guess for most of us, it's a combination. Greg adds to his "degree of difficulty" for this effort by wanting to have an attractive visual library of games.

Greg Wilzbach (gawilz)



I've got a medium-sized collection (a few hundred)...but I've run out of room. Greg's got a pretty enormous collection (a few thousand)...and he's also out of room. How do we decide what to downsize? Greg approaches it in terms of series, versions, or expansions, finding clusters of games he wants to keep, and how that allows him to (theoretically) release a bunch of similar series, versions, or expansions.

For this special pre-Gen Con episode of Board Gamers Anonymous, Chris and Anthony sit down to discuss some of the brilliant game mechanics that really only work in a perfect world. From rules that people always break (intentionally or otherwise), to those they can't follow, there are some game systems that just don't work very well except under ideal circumstances. 

We're also talking about some of the big news in the gaming hobby, including Dice Tower Award winners, Spiel des Jahres nominees, Gen Con, and our recording schedule. 

 

Acquisition Disorders this episode include:

  • Martians: A Story of Civilization
  • Cry Havoc
  • Burano
  • Smash Up: Cease and Desist
  • Mysterium: Hidden Signs

And At the Table this week, we got a chance to play and review:

  • Zombicide: Black Plague
  • Lancaster
  • Porta Nigra

Welcome to the July 2016 episode of the View from the Veranda Podcast

Once again, hosts Neil Shuck and Henry Hyde get together to chat about a variety of subjects to do with miniature wargaming. Although this time our intrepid hosts contend not so much with wargaming as writing, publishing and the creative process.

Sit back, pour a glass of your favourite beverage, and join us on the Veranda.

Episode: The RPG Room: Chasing Equality ( 84.97 MB / 61:52)

For the last few years the discussion on equality in games, both in and out of the fantasies, have been raging with arguments being made on both camps that make you wonder sometimes if we have learned anything in the last two hundred years.

Some of us do want to see more diversity in games, both in the creative environment – that is, the people who create the games – and in the created environment, inside the games themselves.

Some other people consider that inclusion of diversity and the added richness it provides a burden on their creative juices. Which is bullshit.

However there is an aspect of all this inclusion that makes people nervous because on the one hand they fee they *must* include minorities and, on the other hand, if they make a mistake in the representation, they will be scorned mercilessly by members of those minorities.

Is there a balance to be striken here? Do we truly need equality in games?

So can they? Mike, Geoff, and Brian explore what makes people sad, and whether board games can do that - and how that affects their status as 'art'.
