I told Marty that we should occasionally change the secret word to the Green Room. By keeping the same code, past people could show up and request to come back on the show. Luckily that has not happen yet, but we were lucky to have Justin Jacobson and Rob Daviau make another guest appearance on the show. The last time they were on, Fireball Island was launched on Kickstarter and we all know how that turned out for them. This time, they tell us about the new Unmatched Battle of Legends. Also, it seems “moonpie”, “squirrel”, and “lawnmower” aren’t very strong codes.
We rez from the dead the segment In a Nutshell and talk about a couple of games that we got to the table. We had a dice chucker called Kapow. This was one that is a filler and ramps up very quickly. Hidden strategy on building and constructing your dice to combat your opponent. Combo Fighter is a card battle game that rewards those that can card count. Tudor has a unique method of changing the base actions through the collection of rings and their position on a cardboard hand. What makes this difficult is the only way to get the rings is by moving up to the top in the throne room. And if someone displaces you, then they can take your ring. Interesting mechanic in the game.
We also played many Kickstarters and give our opinions on them. They are either already active or will soon be active. One of these was designed by a Nate Bivins who has been on the show before and is part of the Scurry Report. This seems to be Kickstarter season, so lots of competition for your dollar. I know I have passed up some incredible ones, but the temptation is too great on some of the ones we talk about in this episode.
