In this D6G megasode we manage to interview the men behind two of the hotest up-and-coming miniature gaming companies.

Up first Eric Johns from Wyrd Miniatures brings us up to date on what's happening with Malifaux and beyond.  What can we expect from the new rule book, what kind of hotness will be at GenCon, what's the deal with Puppet Wars, and just how cool is all that new Terraclips terrain anyway?

Later Neil Fawcett from Spartan Games is on the show.  We ask him what's going on with all three lines of Spartan products: Uncharted Seas, Firestorm Armada, and Dystopian Wars.  They've also got a lot of new hotness coming to Gencon 2011 and Neil isn't shy about telling you exactly what it is.  

But we're not done with Spartan Games once Neil hangs up.  We then dive into the new land units for Dystopain Wars.  How does the game play on land?

As if all that wasn't enough, we announce the winners of the Wargamma haiku contest and don't miss a special 'extended edition' of Words from Wales... megasode indeed!

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

- The Hollywood Minute

- Total Fan Girl

- Do You Ever Notice

- Words from Wales

Someone on the show is a Trek fan... can you guess who?  When Star Trek: Expeditions hit the streets, the crew just had to review it.  Well, two of us did.  Does it do the series justice?

The mulling mechanics segment returns!  This time we examine "What Makes a Euro?"  The lines seem to be blurring these days.  Can Craig, Raef, and Russ clear things up?  Or will they just make it even more confusing?

But up first, we're excited to get a chance to interview Teras Cassidy of Geek Nation Tours to learn how he started a niche business helping geeks get where they want to go.

Battletech!  A true classic that is near and dear to many gamer's hearts.  In episode 80 Raef, Russ, and Craig chat with Randall Bills, the man with more years on the Battletech project than he cares to admit.  Today Randall works for Catalyst Game Labs and he brings us up to speed on Battletech, Shadowrun, and Catalyst's new game universe, Leviathans.

After that, it's time to have fun storming the castle.  Stronghold blends euro mechanics with a war game theme: siege the castle!  Does this game appeal to all three hosts?

In Episode 75 Russ takes the lead in a new "Green Eggs and Ham" style segment trying to convince Craig and Raef that Wrath of Ashardalon, the new D&D Adventure System board game, is worth a try by highlighting what's different from Ravenloft.

But first another new segment: "Dominant Species" or "Survival of the Funnest" or, well, we're still working on a name. In the this segment we spend quite a bit of time covering which games we play the most, and which new style games have replaced old favorites.

Plus don't miss Total Fan Girl this time around as she get's the details on "Geek Girl Con." Yep, another mega-sode.
