Episode: DJ181: Welcome to... (2018) Benoit Turpin ( 8.92 MB / 9:42)

A finals de l'any passat ja s'intuïa que els jocs tipus paper & pencil (paper i llapis) o roll & write (tirar dau i escriure), de fet en vam parlar d'alguns jocs interessants que feien servir aquesta dinàmica. Però avui portem a la secció el que de moment creiem que és el millor dels que hem provat fins ara (a falta de provar Plenus i Ganz Schön Clever).

A més us explicarem la història de la publicació en castellà d'aquest joc, vinculada a una visita d'un grup de jugadors catalans al Festival Internacional de Jocs de Cannes. I, si ens hagués donat temps, també us hauríem comentat que el joc es va presentar com a prototip al concurs de creació de jocs més important de França, el que organitza el CNJ de Boulogne-Billancourt (París).

Podcast: Arcade Castle
Episode: Arcade Castle - Episode 17 - Kirby Double Feature! ( 100.27 MB / 73:09)

In Episode 17 of the Arcade Castle Podcast, Arcade Castle learned to be wary of having guests on the show when their star guest, Kirby, decides that John and Patrick are more suited for consumption than communication and, after surviving the expansive void that is the fluffy interior of Kirby, Arcade Castle finds itself stranded in Dream Land as Kirby collapses from the powers he absorbed from John and Patrick.

Stranded in the Whispy Woods, Arcade Castle decides the best way to pass the time while Kirby recovers is to play two Kirby themed card games by playing Kirby No Copitoru! (aka the Kirby Copy Abilities Battle! Card Game) from 2015 and the Kirby Sweets Party Board Game from 2017, both of which were published by Ensky in conjunction with HAL Laboratories and Nintendo.

In Kirby No Copitoru! Players start off as a basic Kirby character in this mini-deck building game. As players defeat enemies from the different colored suits (Green, Red, Blue, Yellow) shuffled together into the main enemy deck, players are able to obtain new Kirby abilities for their deck matching the suit(s) of the enemy(ies) they defeated. In subsequent rounds, players will be able to play these new cards to enact powerful abilities that will allow them to defeat some of the most powerful enemies in the game, including King Dedede. As players collect Kirby ability cards and defeat enemies, they will slowly collect victory points and, by the end of round 7, the player with the most victory points is the winner!

The second card game Arcade Castle played while waiting for Kirby to come out of his coma was the Kirby Sweets Party board game. In this game, players are collecting ingredients to complete sweets in preparation for the Sweets Party. However, if they don't complete their sweets or invite the wrong guests they may find victory hard to achieve!

In this unexpected 'On the Road' episode, Arcade Castle looks at the history and impact of the Kirby franchise from its inception to the most recent titles in the franchise on the Nintendo Switch. They talk about the evolution of the pink puffball as well as look at the wide variety of games Kirby has been in and how, appropriately enough, Kirby is able to absorb whatever game genre throws at him and use it to great success.


Episode Outline:


00:00-25:00 - Arcade Castle takes an in-depth look at Kirby the character, and Kirby the franchise as they take a look at the videogame franchse from past to present as well as look at the other cultural offerings Kirby has to offer. In addition, another segment of Once Upon a Powerup discusses how Kirby got his name.

25:00-50:00 - Arcade Castle looks at the first card game of the day by playing and discussing the Kirby No Copitoru! card game. Explaining the rules, its strengths, its weaknesses, and how to improve it (if possible).

50:00 - 75:00 - Arcade Castle turns its attentions to the second title played today: The Kirby Sweets Board Game. In addition to playing and critiquing the board game, Arcade Castle invites one of the members of Board Game Blitz onto the podcast to talk about their love for Kirby as well as their thoughts on the Kirby Sweets Party Board Game in a new segment called Fuzzy Memories. After giving their final recommendations, Arcade Castle attempts to find a way to leave the Whispy Woods and get back to Arcade Castle in time for Episode 18.

Wir begeben uns ins Jahr 2015. Auf der SPIEL'15 wurden zwei Spiele vorgestellt, die unter den Spielern nur kopfschütteln hervorriefen. Gleich zwei Brettspiele kamen auf den Markt, die man nur einmal spielen konnte. Pandemic Legacy war das eine davon und das andere Brettspiel war T.I.M.E Stories. Und genau über dieses wollen wir in der heutigen Folge sprechen. Jasmin & Jans verrückte Reise durch die Zeit Wir schauen uns dabei nicht nur das Grundspiel an, sondern wollen auch die einzelnen Erweiterungen besprechen. Dabei gehen wir nicht zu sehr ins Detail, um einfach Spoiler zu vermeiden. Vielmehr geht es uns darum, die Abenteuer zu betrachten und für uns zu bewerten. Welches Abenteuer gefiel uns richtig gut und welches war eher schlecht? Lasst euch mitnehmen auf die Reise in die Vergangenheit und Zukunft von T.I.M.E Stories, dem etwas ungewöhnlicheren Brettspiel.

Episode: Pirates CSG Podcast #38: News, Game Essentials, Playing Solo, Pirate Code Page, Try 20 Point Fleets! ( 0 MB / 31:10)

New Idea: Challenge.  Your next game of Pirates CSG should NOT be at 40 points!  (20/60/etc)

Question of the Day: Any ideas for new segments we could pursue?

News: MT alive into the new year.  Posting entire story of EE game on IG: https://www.instagram.com/piratescsg/

Obago Deuce for $500!  https://goo.gl/w9KSTJ

Proof: https://i.postimg.cc/85gX4J8V/Eagleman94about-Obago-Deuce.png

(one previous known high was $232.50, hard to find others that have been exchanged since vosarnath’s at MT a handful of years back)

-Having slight technical issues that may compromise podcast episodes and THC a bit

-Between godmason being busy, my impending life changes, somewhat declining content base, and technical issues, expect shorter and less episodes this year.  Suggesting topics is great!!

-Short solo episodes may sometimes be even less than 30 minutes, I can cover a bunch of stuff quickly it seems, especially with only one opinion on each topic.

-Trying to do a post/page every day at PwB, going through MT content for some of my best stuff

-Commenting on my content at PwB will help the site grow and be popular as a “hub” for Pirates CSG - plus I’ll respond to all comments!!  Thank you!

-Looking at podcast data from SE, seem to have about 33 unique IP’s per episode.


Game essentials - measuring card or straws - latter great for arches and planning moves/premeasuring,  Use a big d6 from SE boxes/etc for ease of use and likely better results (fun idea though - 10 tiny d6 for a Zeus shoot action since all cannons the same)

Another idea on playing solo without favoring a faction - really delve into each faction, especially before playing.  Maybe stop playing favorites in general, force yourself to use a faction you’ve NEVER played before. Read a book on the Spanish Empire and then see if you like playing them better.  Make customs inspired by pop culture to play the Cursed or Vikings, etc. Just think outside the box and try to really become a fan of each faction. Partly due to knowing almost all the ships and crew in the game, I find it easy and fun to play as any faction.  (ex: Vikings in CG4 should be fun, and somewhat groundbreaking in terms of factional play in CG’s)

Try reading to get passionate: https://amzn.to/2AQkdBs

New segment - Random Pirate Code page, muse on rules/strategy of results  https://pirateswithben.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/The-Pirate-Code-FAQ-Dec-2016.pdf

Interesting fleets for x point games - try 20 points sometime.  Fast, forces you to be efficient with building, probably no +5’s, easy to get going, fun with multiple players OR multiple fleets per player, etc.  Played Water World game against repkosai in 2017 with Libellule + bonuses, was very fun!!

Libellule fleet: http://m.miniaturetrading.com/im/showDeck/deck_id/800125/grouping/0/extended_format/true

6 bonuses fleet: http://m.miniaturetrading.com/im/showDeck/deck_id/800322/grouping/0/extended_format/true

Episode: Podcast #16 Gene Billingsley of GMT Games Part 1 of 2 ( 46.75 MB / 64:24)
THIS podcast is offered in 2 parts, and is singularly composed of an interview with GMT Games President, Gene Biillingsley. We will discuss his work at GMT and also his latest design, Mr President. Gene Billingsley founded GMT Games in 1990. As Avalon Hill turned to computer games and was eventually sold to Hasbro, Gene built GMT into the new home for board wargamers. He started with some of his own designs. These titles garner instant acclaim. Operation Shoestring was nominated for a Charles S. Roberts Award and Silver Bayonet and Crisis Korea won Charles S. Roberts Awards. I’m sure his current design project, Mr. President, won’t disappoint As the distribution network for boardgames went into retreat in the 1990s, GMT pioneered the preorder system called P500. It remains the best deal in board wargaming. The system allows GMT to thrive in uncertain waters as customers vote their interest in designs and accelerate the production schedule of the most interesting. Customers get 30% off and can cancel at any time. The Company is now the bell weather for conflict gaming, anchored by Gene and his partners Rodger MacGowan, Mark Simonitch, Tony Curtis and Andy Lewis. GMT continues to produce quality games with marquee designers like Mark Herman, Richard Berg, Volko Ruhnke, Chad Jensen, Ted Racier and many others. I spent a couple of days with Gene during his semi annual Weekend at the Warehouse. We discuss everything from college football and his beloved Sooners to how he encourages designers to develop the breadth of offerings GMT has become known for. We start the day with Gene cooking me scrambled eggs at his home in Hanford California. While he claims the recipe is from Richard Berg, I doubt it due to the lack of random events.

Despite having some problems with his voice, Matt was happy to talk about his time in the game industry, and his interest in RPG design. […]

Episode: PSP #578: 2084, Book of Demons ( 0 MB / 0:00)

On today's show, Marc talks about 2084, a first-person shooter currently in early access, slated to release no later than the year 2084, and Book of Demons, a simple little dungeon crawler with a nice papercraft aesthetic that some might call a book of weeeee, fun. Also, some movie talk and site-related nonsense. Anyway, something-something shooty and a blowfish's friend named Hootie, cheers and enjoy the anime-zing(ly hacky) show. | www.pixelatedsausage.com | Support us on Patreon: patreon.com/PXS | Buy some art: pxsart.com

Episode: Più o meno GDR - NEED Games pubblica Vampire V5 ( 0 MB / 13:35)
Il buon Nicola De Gobbis ha comunicato che piano piano pubblicheranno notizie, sia sul loro sito che sul gruppo dedicato Vampiri: La Masquerade V5 GDR Italia. Nel regolamento del gruppo facebook è possibile trovare le indicazioni su come pubblicare contenuti fan made su Vampiri V5. Oltre al manuale base non si sa ancora quali altri saranno localizzati da NEED Games (e mi riferisco ad esempio a Chicago by Night il cui Kickstarter ha riscosso molto successo $119.039), ma pare che saranno presenti nel catalogo dei manuali creati da appassionati. Per cui se siete interessati a vedere se ci sarà il manuale di ambientazione della vostra città seguite le news.

Episode: Ep 112: Why I love A Song of Ice & Fire (Chase from On Tabletop) ( 55.28 MB / 80:26)
This week I talk to Chase from On Tabletop about all of the reasons he loves A Song of Ice & Fire, the recent release from C’MON. For those people not aware A Song of Ice & Fire is a table top war game set in the Game of Thrones universe and pits units of warriors against each other with help from non combat units off the battle field and also a hand deck of tactics cards that can change the flow of the battle. It was great talking to Chase, it was fun for me to talk with someone else as enthusiastic about this game as I am. If you enjoy historical/fantasy war games then I encourage you to check it out as I personally love it and it is always close to the top of the suggestion list when a gaming friend and I are thinking about what to play. Thanks to Chase for coming onto the show and make sure you check out his A Song of Ice and Fire podcast which you can find on his facebook page if you like the game and want to find out more.

Episode: ENGN Episode 122 - Recent Hotness and Tastemakers in Board Games ( 55.83 MB / 47:37)

Anthony and Jason finally settle down for a chat about games, just the two of them. Nice to get back to our roots .

We talk about two new games that have hit our table. First up is Architects of the West Kingdom (4:43), a very hot worker placement game that made a lot of people's Top Ten Games of the Year list. We get into what separates it from the pack, at least for some folks, as well as the very neat little solo bot included. Next up, we chat about Cerebria: The Inside World (17:26), a much more complicated game that one of us really loves, while the other... 

Finally, we chat about tastemakers in games. You know who the big ones are - Tom Vasel, Radho, Undead Viking, etc. What kind of impact do they have on us and on gamers? What's the best way to use them in your gaming life? What do you do when they point you in the wrong direction, whether towards buying a piece of garbage or avoiding what might be your next favorite game? Thank you to our Every Night is Game Night Facebook community for your contributions!
