Podcast: Meeple Nation
Episode: MN 0071 Viceroy ( 28.99 MB / 36:12)

This week we talk about Viceroy, which is designed by Yuri Zhuravlev and produced by Mayday Games and Hobby World. Viceroy is a board game of bidding and resource management set in the world ofBerserk, a Russian collectible card game.

  This is a beautiful and colorful collection of cards and bits with excellent artwork. The theme is stretched a bit as the characters provide fairly generic powers depending on where they are placed in your pyramid, including more resources, cards, or tokens for scoring, which is bit of a point salad.   We all enjoyed the game, though Ryan is a bit disgruntled at the way Brent and Nathan "taught" him the game, thoroughly whooping him, locking him out of resources, and gloating in their towering pyramid at his expense.   It was a tough first play.   The tagline on the box says "Build Your Pyramid of Power!" and like a elaborate stack of cheerleaders, you must stack the character cards bought at auction in the most beneficial way possible.

In today's episode, Marc starts off the show going off on Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (My Little Monster) once again because they just can't help it, even reading a few random Netflix reviews while they do it. After that, they talk about art and why artists shouldn't work for free--meaning no pay, no exposure, no nothing--so don't do it, and then they hit the usual summer anime nonsense and a game or two.

Episode: Episode 05 - Christianity and Gaming ( 58.07 MB / 42:15)

This episode certainly has the possibility of being contentious, but it's our attempt to understand a few of the issues that we find ourselves running into in the gaming space because of our faith. To be clear, Lije and Jason are both conservative Presbyterians, so we have quite a few opinions about faith and morality which are not in line with the cultural consensus at the moment. We discuss a lot of morality, which is hopefully of interest to you even if you're not coming at this with a Christian perspective. If you're interested in hearing any more about this, we would certainly encourage you to contact either of us and we can try to answer your questions. Happy listening!

Episode: W3.E02 :: Designing Games with John Ariosa ( 7.69 MB / 5:30)

Our second episode features John Ariosa, well-known board game artist. Some of his games include Mice and Mystics, Floating Market, and Bullfrogs. His four premises were cute school girlsdollsblood sport, and heartwarming.

In an effort to bring more content to our listeners, we have subtracted the game design segment from the end of our episodes and are releasing these segments on their own. We record a lot of interviews, so we will have a lot of these game design exercises. The purpose of the segment is to brainstorm about a game design with a published or soon-to-be published designer.

The rules of this segment are as follows

  • We give the designer 4 premises taken from the game Channel A.
  • He or she has to design a game idea answering these 3 questions
    • What is the theme?
    • What is the main mechanic?
    • What is the victory condition

Alex and I participate in the discussion, so it is a collaborative venture. I hope you enjoy this segment and future segments of this kind.

Episode: Episode 79: Batman Returns 3D Board Game ( 45.86 MB / 66:09)
We don the cape and cowl once more and take up the role of Michael Keaton in the Batman Returns 3D Board Game! In this one, players punch as many bad guys as they can, hoping to find enough Batman logos to earn the right to battle The Penguin...but Catwoman is on the prowl, sending you back to your home space to contemplate your dark past. It's a board game so dramatic, even the board is in "tiers"! The board is in "tiers", you guys!
