Geoff Englestein: Game Designer, Podcaster, and Professor of Gaming is back in the third chair.

First, Russ quizes Geoff and Craig on both what it's like to work with other people's IP and what it's like to have others work with yours. Oh, and Geoff gives us a little preview into "Survive: Space Attack" from Stronghold Games.

And later the three of us give a detailed review of Fantasy Flight Games' co-op X-Com: The Board Game.  Just how hard is it to save the world from aliens.  More importantly...is it fun?

Jon "Yakface"Regul of DakkaDakka.com returns to the third chair!

Jon is no stranger to miniature war games having been a powerful force behind DakkaDakka.com and the 40k INAT FAQ for many years. So image how exicted we were to learn he and others from Dakka Dakk were launching a brand new miniatures game: "Maelstrom's Edge."  Join us as we quiz Jon on all the details of this new hotness.

And later Jon, Craig, and Russ dive in to more new hotness: Star Wars Armada and find out why it's both the rules AND the miniatures that make this game great.
