It's been just about a year since the launch of Malifaux.  The D6G team was happy to sit down with Eric Johns, the big cheese over at Wyrd Miniatures to discuss how the game did in year one, and what the new hotness is in the latest book and releases for the Malifaux miniature game.

Later Raef and Russ take advantage of Craig being distracted with a new son to discuss video games. With a focus on the recently released Starcraft 2 they examine what makes these games appealing.

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

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:

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?

Command and Control, Battlefield Friction, morale, call it what you will, many games try to simulate the challenge of commanding troops. The D6G team discusses how this is done in many popular games in their first segment: Mulling Mechanics.

Later they take on the roles of Dungeon Lords.  Sure, anyone can raid a dungeon, but can you build one and keep it safe from pesky heroes?  Does the newest game from the creator of Galaxy Trucker and Space Alert continue the tradition of funny, fun, and challenging?

Episode 56 is an RPG Interview extravaganza!  

Up first the guys interview Sam Stuart of Fantasy Flight Games.  Sam gives the low down on two upcoming Rogue Trader RPG expansions: Lure of the Expanse and Into the Storm.  He even shares details about one of the new playable Warhammer 40,000 races added via Into the Storm.

Then Total Fan Girl grabs some time with the guys from Evil Hat Productions and asks them to share what it was like to develop the upcoming Dresden Files RPG.  

Finally the guys hop back on a board... a shuffle board?  To fight monsters?  Find out all the details in a detailed review of Catacombs.

Episode 55 is a mega-sode!  The topic of WH40K Horus Heresy just screamed for extra time to do it justice.

But first there is the matter of a contest to resolve.  Listen along with the D6G team as we review the top audio entries in our "Please can I have a copy of Runewars" contest.

After that, it's off to Games Workshop's world of Warhammer 40,000.  Or is it 30,000?  Anyway ... Join us as we explore the details of the new game from Fantasy Flight Games with none-other than Jeff Tidball.  Learn how Jeff came to work on the project, what were the challenges, and where did all the great ideas come from?

And finally, the big review.  The boys dive deep into the innards of the Horus Heresy game.  Is it worth the money?  Does it capture the theme?  And most importantly... is it fun?

In Episode 54 we bring you games for all ages, Blue Oyster Cult, Peter Lipton, and even a singing muppet.

Up first the D6G team reviews five games that just about anyone of any age can enjoy.  Great for getting the kids in  your life to the table.  Russ, Craig, and Raef discuss Sorry Sliders, The Black Pirate, Fish Eat Fish, Pengoloo, and Jungle Treasure in detail.

Meanwhile Total Fan Girl has scored an interview with Eric Bloom, the lead singer of Blue Oyster Cult!!  Turns out he's a gamer.  

Finally, back by popular demand (or at least that's what Hollywood tells us) Peter Lipton returns with "Inside the Podcasting Studio" and asks Raef, Russ, and Craig the questions everyone wants to know.  (er again, that's what Raef tells us)

In Episode 53 the D6G Crew gets back to some games: WHFRP and Runewars!!

Raef has run sesveral sessions of Warhammer Fantasy Role Play 3.0 from Fantasy Flight Games.  Will this new system revolutionize the way we play RPG's?  Or is it a tad too gimmicky?

Later the D6G team dive deep into the realm of Runewars, a new massive boxed game from Fantasy Flight Games also.  This game is loaded with theme and amazing components. 

Also, Nicole and Russ made it to PAX East.  Here their thoughts in Achievements in Gaming and Total Fan Girl.

Cryptology, patents, Warmachine Mk 2 and even the CIA all get discussed this episode!  Yep, we're not sure how that happened either.

First up, patents: how do they work and why do you need them?  We had such a great response to our show about Trademarks we asked Romeo from Battlefoam to come on and talk about the how's and why's of patenting something like a fancy pants laser system to cut foam.

Later Total Fan Girl chats with Elonka Dunin, a world renown expert on cryptology who has done work for the CIA!!  But more importantly, she's a gamer.

Finally, the D6G team takes a hard look at Warmachine Mark 2.  The book has been out a couple months now, Force books are on the streets, and the boys have played more than a few games.  Is it everything we hoped for?

Oh, and listen close to the beginning of the show for news about a new product from our friends at Lone Wolf Development!!
