91SZ8DeIj7L._SY355_It is well know I have a soft spot for French produced games because they tend to be really, really lovely and wonderfully beautiful.

And among French companies, Ludonaute are my softest of spots because they not just produce fantastic games (Ygdrassil anyone? Lewis & Clark?) but they also look super gorgeous.

With Colt Express, a Western themed game in which you compete to rob a train, they took it one level up with the production and it has paid off because is a spectacular game on the table and has got them the most prestigious award of all, the Spiel des Jarhes 2015, so there must be something good about this game.

However, if you still need some more evidence to find out if this game is worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it, watch on!

Hope you enjoy the show!

legendary_planetLegendary Games has been creating some impressive material for quite some time now. With a great ability to surround themselves with terrific writers, they hit the mark very, very often.

Now Legendary Games have joined forces with a terrific plethora of authors to create Legendary Planet Adventure Path, a very interesting take on the fantasy and science fiction games with this new adventure path for the Pathfinder RPG.

I got together with Neil Spicer and Mike Shel, two of the leading people behind this project, to find out more about what it entails and what’s all about.

Legendary Planet Adventure path is funded in Kickstarter and I strongly recommend you take a look at it. It looks pretty amazing!

Hope you enjoy the show!

Beast_the_primordialBy Paco Garcia Jaen

Onix Path has created some of the most iconic and popular roleplaying games out there and now they want to repeat the feat by publishing Beast: The Primordial, a game in which the players take on the roles of creatures that are the product of nightmares. Or the cause.

This game has been in development for over a year by writer and author Matthew McFarland and, if in the past he’s had some good ideas, he’s probably levelled up for this one because it sounds a lot better than I was expecting (and I was expecting a great deal to start with).

To find out more about the game and the limited Prestige Edition that’s funded on Kickstarter, I got together with McFarland and with Onix Path’s Creative Director Richard Thomas to ask about the game itself and the future of the line.

Hope you enjoy the show!

pic1638487_t[1]Guardians’ Chronicles is a super hero based miniatures game published by the excellent Iello.

Released in 2014, it plays 2 to 4 players and from the outside looks pretty amazing.

In this game the players take the roles of super heroes who have to stop Professor Skarov from executing his evil plans. With a fair number of miniatures, cards and tiles, the game promises a lot and looks gorgeous.

But are the content of this box worth the amount of money you have to pay to get your hands on it?

Let’s find out!

in_absentiaSometimes players have to leave the game and be ad-absentia for a few weeks at the time and sometimes they leave their characters behind so they can come back and retake the session. That happens more often than not in long term campaigns.

What should happen to those characters?

In this episode Vickey Beaver, Jim Pinto and myself discuss the dos and don’ts of dealing with characters that have been left behind and their possessions, worldly or otherwise.

With sordid secrets and everything!

Hope you enjoy the show!

Academy Games is currently in Kickstarter with a new version of a game called Mare Nostrum; a game of building empires, defending territories, building alliances and managing lots of resources.

The company has had massive successes in the past with games like Fief – France 1429, 1775 Rebellion, Freedon – The Underground Railroad and the Conflict of Heroes series and now they’re poised to repeat the feat with this project.

And I am not surprised. It looks amazing and Academy Games has forged a reputation for quality both of gameplay and production that people have come to trust.

But, as usual, a new game is also a new risk both for consumers and producers and one can never find enough information before buying to help make the right decision. Which is why I got together with Uwe to ask him a bunch of questions about the game and the project.

Hope you enjoy the show and take a look at the Mare Nostrum Kickstarter project.
