Ding & Dent Episode 5 – Sandy Petersen Interview and Big Box Games

distantplainratty (1)

 

This episode’s big discussion was about Premium Games. These are the multi-$100 boardgames that have found a thriving home on Kickstarter. We interviewed Sandy Petersen, designer of Cthulhu Wars and talked about them. He’s basically one of the originators of this style of game so it was neat to hear his perspective and explain (not necessarily defend) where these games fit in the gaming landscape. And of course, we talked about what we’ve been up to lately including Champions of Midgard and BattleBin

Games Discussed: Fireteam Zero, Champions of Midgard, Blood Rage, Hyperborea, Cthulhu Wars, Chaos in the Old World.

The Game Pit Podcast Episodes 1 & 2: Picking Over the Bones

game-pit-logo

In Episode 1, Sean and Ronan discuss games they have played recently.

Did Stronghold Games get their first crack at the Euro market right with Milestones? What has brought them back to playing Stone Age? League of Six inspires opposing views. They wonder whether they will ever be any good at D-Day Dice and Yedo transports Ronan. Finally they try to figure out the best way to play Alien Frontiers.

In Episode 2, Sean and Ronan again pick over some of the games that have fallen into the pit in recent weeks.

Did Dungeon Run sprint into our hearts or trip up on the way? Why you should have heard of Moai. Quarriors, fab or fad? Is Power Grid worth a place in the BGG top ten, nine years after publication? Did they enjoy their cruise Upon a Salty Ocean and is Carson City a shoot out or a shut up?
