Colby Dauch joins Craig and Russ in the third chair. Colby is the man under the hat at Plaid Hat Games, bringing out hit titles like Summoner Wars and Dungeon Run.

In this episode the group discuss the recent "Board Game Breakout." Board games seem to be appearing in more and more places. Are they going main stream? Why now?


But first, since we've got Colby on the show we thougt it would be great to get the "Plaid Hat Games Origin Story." How did Colby get is start in game design and where did Summoner Wars come from?

Look ma! A bonus episode!  We've got some great new serivces to announce, including new FREE iOS and Android apps and new ways to get the Lost Chapters.  But instead of JUST announcing that we thought it would be nice to include our interview with Mack Martin, co-designer of Dust Warfare! Mack was kind enough to sit down with us for a bit at Adepticon 2012 and give us the inside scoop on the how and why design decisions behind Dust Warfare, and what we can expect in the future.

Raef returns to the third chair to help us celebrate episode 100!! Thanks to all our listeners who helped encourage us to make it this far. This episode is for you.

Up first its a segment that only Raef can dream up: Raef's round table in which Raef asks Russ and Craig all kinds of random questions. What could possibly go wrong?

Later, we asked for it, and you came through. Some of the most amazing listener submitted content we've ever received highlighing favorite D6G moments and other wackiness was sent in for the Episode 100 contest. We play them all, comment on them, and give out lots of prizes.

So please join us as we look back and forward as the D6G passes 100!

Raef returns to the Lost Chapters with Craig and Russ to discuss his favorite TV show: The Walking Dead!

Mar 21, 2012
Angelo Lombardi has been an interview guest on the show in the past, and now he joins us in the third chair. Angelo is the somewhat rare "executive gamer" finding time to game between his duties as COO of a national hotel chain.

Since we had such a busy person on the show we thought it would be a good opportunity to re-visit "Finding Time to Game." How does a busy adult find time to game regularly and balance career and family?

Later, it's a two-fer! We plop on our plaid hats and review both Summoner Wars and Dungeon Run from Plaid Hat Games. Are they fast? Are they fun?
