UNCLE-SAM-GET-OUTOur hobby has a nasty side sometimes and when it shows its ugly face it is very difficult to roll high enough to save for the trolls. And some trolls don’t go away even if you pour acid or burn them to the ground.

That’s what happened recently with a Kickstarter project from Daring Entertainment.

The company released a project to fund a FATE based super hero game and some people took it to heart that they didn’t release the game on a “Pay What You Want” basis as well as having to deal with a well known con-man called Josh Hoopes.

Things got ugly and when they were on the brink of funding, the project was cancelled.

Well… if you’re one of the trolls who influenced this decision, this podcast episode is dedicated to you!

If you’re not one of those, I think you’ll find the episode entertaining!

pic1778033_t[1]Dig Mars is a quick to play game we found at Spiel 2013.

In this game players must turn tiles to reveal value and gather fortunes that will allow them to win the game. A simple gameplay that promises to make it a good game for beginners, the box’ contents have an average production that, although doesn’t blow away, it does what is supposed to and does it well.

But is the game any good?

Michael and Max had a first play of this game to find out!

Hope you enjoy the show!

legendary_gamesLegendary Games has been creating Pathfinder material for a while now and they do indeed know what they’re doing. Our very own Endzeitgeist has written numerous reviews of their products and more often than not he’s very complimentary, which is a good sing indeed!

It seems that now they’re setting themselves up for something bigger and better than anything they’ve done before and for that they’re in Kickstarter.

They have teamed up with Rogue Genius Games, Kobold Press and Dreamscarred Press to create an amazing looking compendium of books to expand on the Pathfinder Mythic rules. Three books, no less.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Rachel Ventura and Jason Nelson and got to ask them a lot of questions about the project, their company, their future and a lot more.

Hope you enjoy the show!

pic1727619_t[1]Quantum is fantastic. Let me say that from the start.

I saw this game at Spiel 2013 and spoke to the minds behind Funforge to find out about the game and I was sold pretty much right away. It looked gorgeous, people seemed to be having a great time playing it and it was quick and easy to play.

What’s not to like, right?

Well, I didn’t really know what wasn’t to like because I hadn’t played it, but now I have, which is what this podcast is all about, so we can tell you about it.

Although it’s not without its problems, this game delivers big time and you might (as in should) want to consider getting a copy!

Hope you enjoy the episode!

pic1771097_t[1]Dungeon Fighter was launched by Cranio Creations to much acclaim for being fiendishly difficult and a ton of fun to play. And silly. It’s very, very silly.

This game sees you rolling dice on a strangely shaped board in order to determine if you’ve succeeded to attack monsters that inhabit… yes, you guessed, dungeons. But the way you roll is dictated by different icons that come from decks of cards during the game.

I tell you, rolling dice onto a surface when you have to launch them using your elbow, or your nose, or from under the table… That is *not* easy!

There’s also an expansion called Fire at Will that was released recently and we thought we’d have a go and find out how it plays and if it adds anything new or worthy to the game.

In this episode is our verdict!

Hope you enjoy the show!

Terris_Wrought_of_Copper_PageThe Mistborn Adventure Game, published by Crafty Games, took the world created by Brandon Sanderson and turned it into an excellent game. And I mean really, really excellent.

Now they’ve published Terris: Wrought of Copper out with a new supplement for the game that explores and expands on the canon of the world and cities for the world.

To find out more about this book and what it contains, I spoke to writers Alex Flagg and Logan Bonner for a while to find out more.

Hope you enjoy the show!
