RDTN Episode 131: Gentes, BooBQ, and Jack Vasel Auction

We have a new contender for our game of the year, Gentes. This is one of those games we wish we had gotten to the table sooner than later and we are kicking ourselves because of it. And now, we will spread the word and the game is hard to find and we apologize for that. We are not apologizing for the game being hard to find, but for the fact we are bringing it to your attention so late. We have reached out to some publishers and told them they really need to take a look at this game and see about getting it picked up if they can. If you find it in YLGS, would not hesitate if you like those middle weight Euro games.

BooBQ was a big success with food, games and fellowship. So many games, we are not going to do anything more than just touch on them with high level discussions. And then there were the ones that we have yet to sit down and play together that we need to give a mention too. If you have Ascension on the iPad and want to play sometime, let me know. I am always looking to help someone’s win percentage.

We have added some updates to our Jack Vasel action, so be sure and take a look if interested. You can click here and get to the item. Regardless of what we send you, you know that you are helping a good cause and thank you so much for looking.

RDTN Episode 130: Richard the Lionheart, Sundae Split, Alien Artifacts and Ted Alspach

We are back and we have tricked another designer to come on to the show. Ted Alspach joins us and talks about the follow-up to Castles of Mad King Ludwig, The Palace of Mad King Ludwig. To answer the question right away, yes, they are different games and you need to hear what Ted says about it to determine if you will consider giving it a spin when it comes out next year.

And what would a show be without a few game discussions. CMON’s Richard the Lionheart was on the table and will be back, it was a fun game. Alien Artifacts was played and needs another few or ten plays to get down to the nuts and bolts of this engine. And then there was the filler from our pal Nate Bivens, the up and coming designer, with his first release Sundae Split.

Plus another contest to celebrate 10K in Twitter Followers.

RDTN Episode 129: London, Azul, Flying Squirrels, and Rambling

I am back and ready to get back in the rut of life. You know, play a game, talk about a game, play a game, discuss food, and so on. It is good to be back and to put two different games on the table. Plan B Games showed us Azul at Gen Con and said to keep it hush hush. Well, we did but now we can tell you about it in a 5 Minute Initiative. Then, Osprey Games was kind enough to let us try out the re-implementation of Martin Wallace’s London. This is going to take multiple plays in order to fully appreciate this game. There are so many different aspects of this game that we couldn’t contain it in 5 minutes. Either way, we hope you get the opportunity to give this one a try.
