We are keeping with our title naming structure by using Pink Floyd’s Sheep but it also ties in nicely with our main content of the Dice Tower Network Board Game of the Month discussion on Catan. True, I could have gone with Another Brick in the Wall, but that would have been too easy for Marty to figure out at the start of the show. I still enjoy playing Catan with people and have not played any of the expansions yet, which is odd. Going to have to rectify that in the coming year.
The big news in this show is the Stronghold announcement about them working with Artipia and bringing their game line up to Northern America, Australia, and Asia. This is outstanding news and we bow to Mr. Buonocore for making this happen. I am very excited about getting my hands on Among the Stars and those in our Game Club better be ready for some plays come September when it is released. Not only will we have ATS coming our way, but Drum Roll, Briefcase, and Shadows over the Empire. Yes, exciting news. If you want to catch a neat how to play video go here.
Also, we announce a new contest as promised because we hit the 1000 follower mark on twitter. Not bad for a bunch a Southern guys. Anyway, the contest is open to those in the US due to shipping costs, sorry but we are a low budget production. I wish we could send it overseas, but the prize isn’t worth the postage.
