We know it's the middle of summer, but winter is coming.  So we thought it would be best to start training now with Fantasy Flight Game's latest release "Battles of Westeros, a Battlelore Game."  (aka BoW)

First the D6G team chats with Robert Kouba, the man behind the new game.  What inspired the game?  And why base it on the Battlelore system?

Later it's time to dive deep into the mechanics of BoW and learn just what makes it tick with a detailed review.  Does the game feel like Battlelore?  Does it capture the world of George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire?

All that and our other not-too-horrible segments including: 

- Rapid Fire

- The Hollywood Minute

- The News

- Total Fan Girl

- & More

Episode 59 is truly Epic, both in length and content!  

First up the D6G team welcomes back Ross Watson from Fantasy Flight Games.  Ross brings us up to speed on the latest Warhammer 40,000 role playing game: Deathwatch.  Now you can play Space Marines!  How do the different chapters work?  What new Chapter did FFG invent?  What makes it different from Dark Heresy and Rogue Trader?

With all that talk of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Raef, Craig, and Russ felt it was time to tackle Epic: Armageddon.  Small in scale doesn't mean small in game play.  We discuss the game in detail.

And be sure to catch Total Fan Girl this week as she interviews three pro-gamers from the "Fragdolls."  What is it like to be a gamer on the pro vid-game circuit?

All that and our other not-too-horrible segments including:
