This episode is full of stuff. We have a discussion with Justin Gary about his career and the new Kickstarter from Stone Blade Entertainment: Ascension Tactics. Tony is a big old fan boy during this, but rightly so with over 1000+ games of Ascension played. But we learn some very interesting facts about Justin that just floors us. If you have the time, be sure to listen to the full episode because there are nuggets about the elements the lead up to Ascension Tactics. However, the hard cord discussion begins around the 55:00 mark. This episode comes out on the day the Ascension Tactics Kickstarter starts, so if you want to back it, do it in the first 24 hours to get your name in the book.

We have a ton of games to talk about in this episode as well. We are going to talk about Cosmic Encounter Duel which really caught Marty by surprise. You know of your expectations are kind of down there and you get blown away. That is what this game did to Marty. When it is just the two of us sitting down to play a game, this and Undaunted are going to be fighting for table time.

Then we have Portal’s new add on for Imperial Settlers, Rise of the Empire. This is only a preview because we need to get Imperial Settlers on the table some more to remember how to play that game well. We had both forgotten strategies, nuisances and the best way to play the factions we picked. If you enjoyed Imperial Settlers before, this add on is something you should consider.

Ravensburger Jungle Cruise and Back to the Future: Dice Through Time find their way to the table. Jungle Cruise is a very light, family game. It is really nothing more than a roll and move game with set collection. However, Back to the Future is a challenging co-op game that will be a tough one to beat. If you like Elder Sign, you should check this one out if you like the IP that the game is based on.

And we discuss the new Unmatched release Cobble & Fog which brings to the table some of the best Universal Monsters and the lovable crime fighter Sherlock Holmes. Finally, Dice Masters has campaign boxes and we got to try one out that let us take a trip down memory lane. We hate that they ran into issues when it was released, such a fun, quick game to play.

Thanks for listening and be sure to enter the contest when you get a chance.
