Summer, why do you have to be so chaotic! I apologize for our unscheduled hiatus for most of July. My Yeti microphone had crapped out on me right before the Fourth of July Weekend. After the holidays, I was able to get a hold of Blue to help me take care of the problem, which they happily did!

All I have to say is “Thank You, Blue!” They’re customer service was phenomenal. They advised me that Yeti microphones have a two year warranty, (which I wasn’t aware of) and I just had to send mine to them and if there was a defect, they would promptly send me a new one, which they did. So, if you are a podcaster, looking for a new mic, be sure to check out what Blue has to offer. They haven’t disappointed me yet!

So, pair that with just life in general being busier than normal, and July is already gone by! I apologize in the delay with our programming.

BUT! WE have fixed this today! In this week’s new episode, Moe from Club Fantasci joins me again to talk about a GM less RPG called Labyrinth by Chris Zimmerman.

We talked about some of the games I played at a small local convention, PDXAge, that I attended last weekend, and Wash talks about some of his games he's been playing in his spare time.

After a week off while House of Borgia was launched on Kickstarter, we are back running with our ears to the ground and our voices on the mics. This week we spend a good deal of time talking about House of Borgia. My experiences with it as a 2 player game, Wash discusses some of the customization options for the Honorary Producers custom boxes, and our usual Kickstarter and games played segments.

This has been a busy week for Wash and I as we polish the gifs, jpgs and videos for the House of Borgia Kickstarter page launching early Feb. 15th. But, not too busy for us to sit down for our usual chat about games we've been playing, the flood gates of games that have washed ashore on Kickstarter, and our thoughts on some of the latest news in the board game industry. So, sit back and enjoy the chaos of the show, and be sure to drop us a line on what Kickstarter projects you are looking most forward too!

Sorry to be running a little late this week, but I think you will find the content well worth it. Since Wash has been busy prepping and preparing for the House of Borgia Kickstarter fixing to launch on February 15th, I asked Moe to stop by our virtual studio and hang out for this week's belated episode.

This actually works out perfect since we both had received review copies of Victory Points Hearty Health Hospital at BGGCon last year. This gives us a chance to review and discuss about the cooperative game at length.

We also talk about our time spent on Tabletopia playing Draco Magi and our impressions of the virtual world that is invading our tabletop space.

Of course, a podblast wouldn't be complete without talking about some Kickstarter projects on Kickstarter right now, and reveal two projects Moe and I have received lately that failed in their delivery of the final product.

5:00 Games Played Section:

Healthy Heart Hospital, Draco Magi, Tabletopia

17:00 Kickstarter Projects:

e-solo-e, Polyversal 6mm Mini Game System, Gato Leader and U-Boat Leader, Karmaka, Zero Hour, Mercs Recon

42:35 Healthy Heart Hospital Review

First off, a HUUUGGEEE "THANKS!" to everyone, listeners and non listeners, we talked to, hung out with, met with, played games with, that took even a second of their time to say "Hey!" All of you made our first BGGCon an astounding good time.

We met, talked, and gamed with a lot of friends, new and old, and without all these amazing people in our board game community, we wouldn't have had the long, fun days that we did. Thank You!

This week's episode is just a very quick recap of our shenanigans, games we played, and people we met and talked with at BGGCon. We recorded in between Wash's busy work schedule and the holiday to get it out for you guys today.

Games Mentioned:

WWE Superstar Showdown, T.I.M.E. Stories, House of Borgia, Stronghold Second Edition, Porta Nigra Tiny Epic Western, Fury of Dracula, Ghostbusters, Resistor_, Noir, Trickster, Trambahn, Loop Inc., The Networks, Trickerion, Rhino Hero(This is the link to the regular version of Rhino Hero, not sure what the imported large version of the game is called.)

Nov 13, 2015

Wash didn't get many games played this last week, but I was fortunate enough to play enough for the both of us. This week also features our Kickstarter round up, Kick The Box.

For our final segment we geek out over Fantasy Flight's announcement of their new Star Wars board game, Star Wars: Rebellion. Our hypothesis about how the game plays based on our experiences with the 1998 PC game of the same name.

Tavarua, Monster Truck Mayhem, Deep Space D6, Venture Dice Bag, Manasurge

TableTop Games Mentioned:
