RDTN Episode 139: Stone Age, Cult, V-Commandos, Fast Forward Series, Age of Rivals

We are actually doing something that was asked for by the listeners of RDTN, we are looking at some older games in our 5 Minute Initiative Segment. The first one is a personal favorite of mine, Stone Age. Aside from the awesome wood dice and leather cup, I really enjoy the aspect of pushing your luck when collecting resources and I find it to be the next step in complexity for those new to board games. Marty has a different opinion on this and he tries to convince me why. Also, how can you not enjoy a game with a love shack in it.

We talk about a Kickstarter that we were able to try that is being brought to you by Cryptozoic. Cult: Choose Your God Wisely is an attempt to bring the Elder gods into the world and make yours be the one that goes off on destroys everything. Before you pass on this one, consider if you like multiple paths to victory, area control and backstabbing your friends, then you might want to go watch a video or two on their page.

And finally, we must say good-bye to Funagain Games. Like everyone else, we found out about them closing their online doors via email and it did sadden us. They have been great supporters of the show and to our listeners with our giveaways. However, they realized that after 15 years, they needed to make a business change and decided to go to brick and mortar stores.
