pic2374467_t[1] Anyone who likes cool TV would have heard of Thunderbirds, the series set an incredible precedent on TV decades ago and it has remained an icon and a milestone to date with a massive following of dedicated fans. Now those fans, and more people yet to become fans, are going to have the chance to become Thunderbirds themselves and work together to save the world from the nefarious plans of The Hood, who won’t make the task easy.

And neither has Matt Leacock, the designer of the Thunderbirds game that Modiphius will publish as soon as the Kickstarter campaign is over.

In this episode of Dice & Slice we show you how the game plays and talk to publisher Chris Birch about the plans for the Thunderbirds game, it’s strengths and more.

To make sure you have as much time to play the game as possible, this episode features two recipes that take mere minutes to prepare without compromising on taste.

The main course is a Lemon Roast Chicken that takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and is ready in the time it’ll take you to save the world a few times. You can download the recipe here.

For dessert, a recipe for Vegan Brownies that will have everyone around you amazed at how incredible something without eggs or milk taste. Download the recipe here.

m80M80 is a very interesting game that has been produced in a record time, play tested in a record time and sent to Kickstarter in a record time too, which makes it a very interesting project in my eyes.

I first met Hack at Spiel 2014 and he is a very impressive man who can work more than most people and faster than a good number of super-heroes.

When he told me about M80, I had to find out more. Not just because the game sounds like an interesting one, but also because he has some ideas about how to run his Kickstarter campaign that made me very curious.

Hope you enjoy the interview!

pic1332456_t[1] Golden Egg Games has produced some super cool games.

Historia, Fallen City of Karez, Alliances, City Council, Florenza: The card game…

And they’ve had some seriously great successes in Kickstarter with Athlas – Duel for Divinity, a two players game in which each player takes the role of a god-like being taking a test of adulthood to gain access back to paradise.

I got together with chief designer and overall ruler of the company to find out what else they’ve been up to and what we can expect in the future.

sleeperSleepers is a conspiracy horror game published by Death Spiral Games and written by Ben Counter, veteran of many Warhammer novels.

This game has been in development for a number of years and puts the players in the shoes of agents with super powers who have just woken up after a long slumber and a post cold-war disaster that’s changed how the world works.

At the time of this recording this game is being funded in Kickstarter and it’s well on its way to get the money it needs to be printed.

The setting sounds good, the mechanics sound good, the book looks good… Is it worth backing it?

I spoke with Ben Counter to ask him a bunch of questions about the game, the campaign and where the company is going with this book.

Hope you enjoy the show!

next_great_american_gameThe Next Great American Game is a documentary movie conceived and brought to life by producer and director Douglas Morse.

In this documentary, we’ll follow Randall Hoyt as he pitches his game, Turnpike, to  publishers in order to get it published.

As you can imagine, that is a task easier said than done and in this movie we’ll get some very good reflection of what is like to try and break it as a game designer.

I spoke with the director and asked all sorts of questions from funding to how real the situations in the documentary are. With a very impressive cast of designers and publishers, this documentary is a must see for anyone who is interested in any aspect of boardgame and specially to those with an interest in game publishing.

Hope you enjoy the interview and you can find more information about the movie in www.tabletopmovie.com.

pic2041077_t[1]If something can be said about GenX Games is that they are uncompromising with their games. They publish what they like to publish and think it’s fun and, more often than not, they get it right!

This past Spiel they came out with “The Possession”, a homage to the Evil Dead movie and its genre.

With all the fear, blood and demonic presence, this game puts the players in the shoes of some young people who have to survive the night and try not to become demons themselves.

Mind you, they can indeed turn into demons, which can be interesting from the gaming point of view because it turns the players against other players in which is otherwise a cooperative game.

I spoke to Servando Carvallar, from the company to find out more about this rather unique game.

Hope you enjoy the interview!
