Every year we are given the opportunity to find a game that just floors us. Last year, we loved City of the Big Shoulders. This year, Guild Master has done the same thing, just taken our breath away. It is simple and elegant in how it plays. It provides tension and interaction without being complicated. And most importantly it has dice. We hope you get a chance to play it, we are looking forward to getting it back on the table.

Seastead is a two player game that isn’t one of those fast table fillers while waiting for a game to finish. It has meat to it and feels like a chess match at times. Here you have to be very strategic in how to claim victory points for the win because you can mess up and give the win to your opponent if not careful.

Raiders of Scythia is a reimplementation of Raiders of the North Sea and as you will hear, one that would we really enjoyed and prefer over the other. While it is a game that is plays very similar, the removal of certain elements really speed the game up and hone in on the important aspects that we enjoy.

And the wives have returned for game reviews and the Puzzle segment is back. Be sure and enter the contest to win the Renegade Puzzle Overlight. You can find the form here.

RDTN Episode 211: At the Table with Lindsay and Rob Daviau

We are trying something new with this unexpected release. You would think after eight years, we would learn not to try new things, but sometimes something comes along that is to good not to try. We are going to try and bring our guests on as an independent release and not make them part of the normal show release schedule. This will help us with time management and also provide us not to feel rushed when we are having a great conversation.

We are also going to try and bring on people beyond designers and publishers. We are hoping to bring artists, writers, production people on to give you an inside look at what it takes to bring a game to your table.

We are very lucky to have Lindsay Daviau join us in this inaugural episode. Lindsay is a Graphic artist at Restoration Games and has an amazing background in the board gaming industry that I am bet you were not aware of. She makes the game flow and make sense. We also “let” Rob sit in and discuss Pandemic Legacy 0, so be sure and hang around for that.

Also interested in feedback and hope you enjoy our latest adventure.

Another long episode. Good thing we are not playing a bunch of games or this would be six hours. We get a visit for David Thompson, a Squirrelly Award winner, and he talks about his new game on Kickstarter called Sniper Elite. So, if you are wondering about backing this game, give him a listen and bypass the rest of the show. However, if you thought about picking up the games Yacht Rock, Pop-tarts, or Last Defense, then Vanessa and Marty talk about their likes and dislikes.

Marty and I also talk about other games we played this past week, just hate it wasn’t together. I got to play Marvel Villainous with my wife and while it may not been her game, I really like where Ravensburger went with this series. Time to get some strategy on while keeping the simple core mechanics. Then Marty talks about two games he know I would enjoy, King & Assassins and Tekhenu. Both I hope to get to play very soon.

Heck, I hope to get to play them all in the future.

Finally, we discuss our top 5 collectible card games. Sadly, most our out of print or will be out of print soon. We need something new. Oh wait, that leads to the discussion of Vampire: The Masquerade Rivals and Ashes 1.5
