We are joined once again by Ignacy. You would think he would have gotten wise after all these years, but nope, he keeps coming back. This time, he talks to us about a game we have been waiting on for years – Stronghold Undead. It is no exaggeration, we have been waiting for years. Good news, the game is funded, so our wait is almost over. It will still be 2020 before we see it. This is also a very short KS and will be over 11/25/2019, so don’t delay if you are interested in backing it.

Ignacy gives advice on how to not loose so badly in Pret-a-Porter to help us in our next game. He then spoils a new faction for Empires of the North where it is about giving stuff to other players only to reap the benefits for yourself. Ignacy states this is going to be a tough but challenging faction to play and we are looking forward to it.

Thank you for listening and in the next episode, we hear about Marty’s adventurers at BGG Con

RDTN Episode 185: Tabletop Showcase – Klaus and Benny Teuber

Time Segment
00:34 Intro
03:28 Klaus and Benny Teuber
22:35 Rank’em
30:23 Thoughts on Starfarers

As part of the Tabletop Showcase Event, we have the honor of talking with Klaus and Benny Teuber. There isn’t a lot of introduction needed here or explanation who they are. It is almost fair to say that if you play board games, own board games, or walk down an aisle with board games, you will see the Teuber name. Do I really need to spell out it for you? Fine, Catan.

Do want to point out that the interview was shorter than we wanted, but we had to catch them between their engagements at Essen. We had too many questions and just hope that we asked ones you would be interested in. We played RDTN Rank’em, which we do with our first time guests, and pay attention because you might get some valuable insight for how to play your next Catan game.

Finally, Marty and I talk about the re-release of Starfarers and our experience. Neither of us have played before and our going in thoughts did not match our thoughts coming out of the play.

Thanks for taking the time in listening to the interview and be sure to check out all the other Tabletop Showcase creations this week.

01:27:08 Broken Token

In this fine episode, we revisit some of our adventures at Marty’s annual BooBQ party and the local con that Mark Kale hosts, Mega Moose Con. During these events, we got to the table a brand new game from Space Cowboys that has found its way onto our shelves and might even be that filler that will be the go to when the chance presents itself. I am talking about Ankh’or and if you looking for a light Splendor type game, give this a try.

We also got to play a proto copy of Stronghold Undead and we give our first thoughts on this game that we have been waiting for for a few years. More on that because Ignacy will be joining us on a later show to give us some more intelligent thoughts than what we can supply.

Adam comes back to the show to share his thoughts on Warhammer’s new Feast of Bones box. He and Marty go all miniature and give the details on what is included in this expansion and their thoughts on if you need to add this to your Warhammer collection.
