RDTN Episode 143: Everyone’s Gone To The Movies (2018 Summer Movie Preview)

Just a heads up, this is our indulgent show where we get to spend time with Dan Patriss and Chris Kirkman talking not about board games, but about the 2018 summer movie releases. This is the fourth year and it is interesting how many of the ones we discuss are sequels. Heck, most of them are sequels, very few are originals movies. Guess it is always best to keep producing what has worked in the past. Throughout the show, three people were in on a joke that was completely lost on me, hope you pick up on it. I knew they were doing it, but had no clue why. Thank goodness Marty adds little nuggets at the end of the show.

We will get back to the games in the next episode, but until then, remember what the great film critic Roger Ebert said:

No good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough.

I think that quote can apply to board games as well.

Don’t forget to enter our contest.

RDTN Episode 141: Fireball Island, Flamme Rouge, Middle Earth Quest, Charterstone

We know that Mr. Jacobson and Mr. Daviau are making their rounds to talk about Fireball Island: Curse of who we can’t say until it is funded. And we didn’t want to be left out of the media blitz. Hopefully, our sit down with them will be informative and help you decide on how much money you are willing to drop on this classic. If anything, be sure to check out our questions at the end where Rob’s true personality shows up.

Our games in this episode include the classic Middle Earth Quest (MEQ) by Fantasy Flight and Flamme Rouge by Stronghold Games. Don’t have a lot to say about MEQ other than I am glad I got to experience the game. The length of the game would make it hard to get to the table, but would play it anytime. Flamme Rouge will be a game we get on the table a bunch in the future. So fast and easy to play and teach. The only downside is setting up the track each time, but once that is done, you could easily do a best of 3 racing series in under an hour. Understand that people have been raving about this one for some time and wish we had been right there with them. You will be hearing about this again when we get the expansion to the table.

RDTN Episode 138: 3rd Annual Squirrelly Awards


Time for the 3rd Annual Squirrelly Awards. For those of you that are joining us for the first time, welcome to a unique type of award show. We want to make sure you understand this isn’t a typical award show. This is our way of recognizing the games that we played last year and really enjoyed with some different if not bizarre categories. Also, we are joined by many awesome people for the board gaming world to help us with the presentations. Some you may know, some you may not, either way, be sure and check out their contributions to the hobby by clicking on the link below.

2017 was another fantastic year in board gaming with an incredible amount of content released. So much content, that we didn’t get all we wanted to the table and we are sure many great games were missed. Please let us know some of your favorites so that we can be sure to try them.

Once again, thanks to everyone who made this another great show and be sure to let Marty know what a terrific job he did in editing this episode. We return in two weeks with the normal stuff and a new segment where we go back and play a game from many years ago.
