PSP #194: Board Gaming with Abyss, 5Pax - Fast Dice Games, Metal Gaming Coins, and More

In today's episode, Marc talks about the set collection-heavy board game, Abyss, from Asmodee, 5Pax--which is a collection of ten different, fast-paced dice games--a currently running Kickstarter for metal gaming coins, and more. And y'all will surely notice a slight change to the way the show is put together, so, if you like it or hate it, please let it be known. Anyway, that's it and that's all, folks, and, if you're feeling extra generous, donate a little money or subscribe to show your support for the site and show(s); it's not free to host the site, the show, to make and record videos, and everything in between, so, anything would be greatly appreciated, even if you just tell a friend or two about the site and show(s). You can also support the site by shopping at Amazon. Cheers, and have a lovely rest of the day. And if you're looking for solutions to the often horribly lacking internal storage inside board game boxes, Robert Searing creates some great-looking foam inserts y'all should check out (foam > wood).

Review: Francis Drake | A Voyage Worth Repeating

When you first look at Francis Drake fully set up, the massive amount of beautiful components may make the game seem overwhelming. Don't be fooled; while there is a lot of deep strategy and interesting choices to be made, the gameplay is very straightforward.

In Francis Drake, players take turns advancing down the street of Plymouth, collecting various resources--like crew members, guns, trade goods, etc--you'll need in order to go on your voyage; however, once a player advances down the road, they cannot backtrack to a location they skipped--I really enjoy this aspect of the game. For example, if I desperately need to upgrade my ship from a frigate to a galleon and the Queen space is the only spot left to do so, I'll have a tough choice to make if she's a few locations down; do I skip over acquiring other resources I might need, or wait and hope the other players don't take the Queen before it gets back to my turn?

PSP #193: Board Gaming with Nautilus Industries and More

In today's episode, Marc focuses on one game, Nautilus Industries, from Lamp Light Games--which is just about to wrap up a very successful campaign on Kickstarter--and, if y'all are wondering if it's good or not, well, it's not everyday that Marc talks about one game and (almost) only one game for an entire episode. Anyway, that's it and that's all, folks, and, if you're feeling extra generous, donate a little money or subscribe to show your support for the site and show(s); it's not free to host the site, the show, to make and record videos, and everything in between, so, anything would be greatly appreciated, even if you just tell a friend or two about the site and show(s). You can also support the site by shopping at Amazon. Cheers, and have a lovely rest of the day.

PSP #192: Board Gaming with Dead of Winter, King's Forge, The Battle at Kemble's Cascade, and More

In today's episode, Marc talks about one of the hottest new board games, Dead of Winter from Plaid Hat Games, a surprisingly fun dice game called King's Forge, and the incredibly disappointing, The Battle at Kemble's Cascade. Anyway, that's it and that's all, folks, and, if you're feeling extra generous, donate a little money or subscribe to show your support for the site and show(s); it's not free to host the site, the show, to make and record videos, and everything in between, so, anything would be greatly appreciated, even if you just tell a friend or two about the site and show(s).

Recently Launched: Kickstarter Picks for the Week of July 18, 2014

So, what is this post all about? Well, it should pretty straightforward, but, if there's any confusion, this is where I'll be talking about a handful of Kickstarter projects each week, focusing on a few projects that recently launched (what a surprise, eh!). Will I be focusing only on projects in need of funding? No, I will simply be focusing on projects that interest me, regardless of whether they've only raised $5 or raised ten times that of their original goal; though, most projects will likely not be funded in 24 hours unless it's coming from an established publisher/Kickstarter-er. Anyway, I think it's about time I got to the actual projects, eh.

*Note: Some of these were launched over a week ago, but it's been a while since I wrote up anything about Kickstarter, so I'm including some campaigns that are relatively recent, but not brand new.

  • Recently launched Kickstarter campaigns...duh.

But Wait, There's More!

  • Ends Fri, Sep 5 2014 10:59 AM CDT.

I know what it's like to pitch an idea to a company, trying to condense so much into a few minutes, and it's usually pretty stressful; however, it can also be a lot of fun to test your creativity and I'm hoping But Wait, There's More!--a game about being the best TV pitch person you can be--is more fun than stressful. The setup is simple; you select a product and then select two features--one selected by you and one selected randomly--and, after you (and everyone else) give your 30-second pitch, y'all secretly vote for your favorite one of the round. That's it and that's all...really, there's nothing more.
