We've been boarded by pirates, er privateers! 

The D6G team tackles the new board game Grind from Privateer Press.  How exactly do massive steam jacks play sports?  Now we know.

And don't miss our new regular segment, "Total Fan Girl."  Nicole chats with Sherry Yeary, the president of Privateer Press about her job, and what it's like to be the biggest pirate of the bunch.

Howdy D6G Fans,

We had a bit of a SNAFU in Episode 42 and originally forgot to include the Space Hulk results in the show! 

We've corrected this issue and uploaded a corrected version of Episode 42.  The new version was published late on Oct. 27th, 2009.

If you downloaded episode 42 on 10/28/2009 or later, you've got the corrected version of the epsiode.

If you downloaded the show on 10/27 or earlier, simply re-download the episode.  The correct Episode 42 should have a running time of 3:35 minutes.  The Space Hulk results are near the end of the show just after the 3 hr 6 min mark.

Sorry about all that folks. 

Thanks for listening,

The D6G Team

 

Oct 27, 2009

Episode 42: The answer show!  How do you run a figure painting business?  Who won our Space Hulk prize?  And just how does Warhammer Invasion work?

The D6G Team has a very interesting chat with Navin of PaintedFigs.com  We learn the challenges of running your own business in Sri Lanke.

Later Hollywood leads us through the mechanics and gameplay of Warhammer: Invasion.

Chaos in the Old World from Fantasy Flight games lets players take on the roles of the gods of chaos in Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy world.  The D6G crew wade through the blood, pus, magic, and debauchery to let you in on the details of the first new WHFB board game in over 10 years.

But before all that.  We MENTIONED GenCon awards back in Ep 38, but promptly didn't include the segment.  Now it made it into the show!  Hear what Raef, Craig, and Russ nominated and selected as winners of the awards that each has created to represent the kinds of things they look for in gaming.
