pic1089477This time I am joined by Lorien Green to host the podcast, since Mark was away and unable to come to this episode.

We did have a great time, though! Chatted about wargaming and Salute 2012, the wargames exhibition in London Excel that has taken place for the last 40 years.

Lorien, though, has been up to something REALLY cool. She has found The Pinball Wizard Arcade and, understandably, she’s been hooked since! Although they’re not boardgames, Pinballs are mega cool and we had a good chat about them. If you are in Pelham NH, you could do a lot worse than spending some time there!

In this show, you can also find an interview with Andrei and Agnyeska, the creators of Warriors and Traders, a game that mixes wargames and euro mechanics in a medieval setting. From the designer’s description:

Warriors & Traders, a turn-based strategy board game set in the Dark Ages in Europe, is a pure strategy game, involving no dice and no unforeseen events. In a nutshell, there’s no luck, just strategy.

Each player starts as the ruler of a small country which he or she will grow into an empire.

pic1178715_mdIn Warriors & Traders, players will use Actions to develop their countries’ technologies, Production, Trade and Military, keeping track on separate Play-mats. They will also build armies to conquer new provinces and forts to defend their own and they will harvest and trade for resources.

The game can be played either in alliance or in a free-for-all system. Player will get Victory points from fighting enemy player or the Barbarians who populate the map, from building Forts or trading. The player or alliance accumulating the most Victory points will win the game. The game ends after a maximum of 10 turns or when one or more players reach the victory conditions, dependent on the number of players and the type of play.

All and all, a good fun episode for all!
