RDTN Episode 66 – Land of Confusion: 2nd Annual Box Office, Red Box, Trash Box with Dan Patriss and Chris Kirkman

summerMovies2011We deviate from our normally scheduled program and bring to you the 2nd Annual Summer Movie Box Office, Redbox, Trash Box episode. The concept is simple, we review a shortened list of summer movies, 27 in all, and talk about whether we would go see them at the theater, rent them, or not even waste our time. We are lucky to have Dan Patriss from The Geek AllStars joining us again this year and he brought along some of his baggage with him, Chris Kirkman from Dice Hate Me games. It was great having them on the show to add different views to the program and someday we can only hope that the Transformer discussions will end. If you don’t give a rat’s behind about movies, then we hope you come back to Episode 67 when we get back on board games. Either way, be sure to silence your cell phones, no texting during the show, and be sure to deposit your trash when you leave the theater. Enjoy the show.

RDTN Episode 65 – A Most Peculiar Man: Portal Games Ignacy Trzewiczek

portalWe are very fortunate to have Ignacy Trzewiczek (Tsch vi tcheck) owner of Portal Games on the show this week. As many of you know, he is the designer behind Robinson Crusoe, Imperial Settlers, and Stronghold. Like many of you, I had no idea how Ignacy got his start and so glad he shared with us his early years. Also, we learn about early games he designed, the different cultures that you must consider when designing games, and what it takes to pull off going to a con as a game company.

He then gives us an exclusive on his upcoming releases Tides of Time and Rattle Battle, Grab Da Loot. Both will be at Gen Con, so hurry over to Portal booth to snatch up your copy assuming everything goes well with logistics. We then get into a game of Rank’em which includes a hint from Ignacy on how to win at Robinson. We were very lucky to have Ignacy on the show and hope you enjoy listening to the show as much as we loved doing it.

That is right, this is how you say it in Polish:

RDTN Episode 64 – With A Little Help From My Friends: Chaz Marler from Pair Of Dice Paradise

pairofdiceChaz_popfilterLook out, Chaz is in the house again so you might want to just get ready for an episode that is nothing but Squirrel moments. Sure we talk about the happenings in the board gaming world, but we spend much of our time talking about his Mockumentary that he did for the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund. The winning bidder received a 30+ minute tribute to their gaming glory at a competition where they beat some heavy hitters in the gaming community. The people that appear in this small film are Tom Vasel, squirrelEric Summerer, Rodney Smith, Joel Eddy, Hunter Shelburne, Rhiannon Ochs, and many others. But it wasn’t just these heavyweights, Marty and I got parts as well.

Chaz then pulls a switch-a-roo on us and makes us play our own game – Rank’em. His topics actually had some thought behind them. Enjoy the show and be sure and check out Chaz’s youTube channel when you get a chance if you don’t already.
