RDTN Episode 62 – Tough Enough: Interview with Matt Leacock

thunderbirdsMatt Leacock has been making the rounds to promote his new game Thunderbirds, published by Modiphius Games and we were lucky enough to be including in his tour of   podcasts/video channels. Some of us even got to interview him twice. The Kickstarter is doing incredibly well as you can imagine and was funded I believe in one day. While this game has my interest, I am already stretched thin on my KS dollars for the year, so I am going to pass until it hits retail.

Matt then took some time to talk with us about his Pandemic series and a little about Pandemic Legacy but unfortunately he can’t spoil anything yet and we all have to wait. Hepic2452831 did mention what most of us have already heard, that it is atwelve month campaign, there are two cover art boxes out there, but it is the same game, and it was great working with Rob Daviau. One thing I hadn’t heard that was news to me was that they signed off on the game and it was ready to print. Zman is saying that they had 52,000 pre-orders for this game which is incredible in my opinion.

This was a really fun interview with Matt and we appreciate him taking his time to come on our show. Here is a link to the shop we were talking about with the Game Pimper T-shirt if you are interested.

RDTN Episode 60 – Don’t Look Back: On Board Game Interview with Donald Dennis and Erik Dewey

OBGclean

And the Triad is complete. We have concluded our back to back to back shows and I don’t know about you, but I am spent. We are very honored to have on the show Donald and Erik from On Board Games. We talk to two guys that have seen a bunch of change in the industry and get them to reflect back on the dark days of gaming and compare it to today’s enlightened world, they are completely obsessed about the victory over full tank champs that they get with P4rgaming and now they want to share their experience.

I get to introduce a new segment, Statistically Speaking, that I hope turns out to be a plus for the show. My goal for this segment is to help us play our games smarter without a huge deep dive into the world of statistics. We all think we know something about statistics, I mean who doesn’t know that you have a 50-50 chance with a coin, or a 1 in 6 chance to get a number on a dice, but are we truly using the terms correctly. I mean,stats statistically speaking, I got a 50% chance of this segment falling flat on its face, okay, maybe greater chance than that.

Thanks for listening and don’t forget we have two contests going on currently.
