Ryan Lesser is in the third Chair!  Ryan has been helping build great rhythm games (Rockband, Dance Central) at Harmonix for years.  And he's also designed and released High Heavens, an innovative two player strategy game.

Since we've got Ryan on the show we thought we'd talk about something common to both video games and board games, the user experience.  How does his video game experience impact the user experience in board games he designs and plays.

Later we dive into High Heavens.  What inspired Ryan to build the game, how does it play, and what to Craig and Russ think of it?

 And don't miss the exciting results of our Stronghold Games "Space Cadets: Away Missions" contest.  With a special cameo from Stephen Buonocore.

Raef 'Hollywood' Granger is back in the third chair for a Sci-Fi packed episode!

Raef has been playing a lot of Fantasy Flight Game's X-wing miniatures game lately.  And recently he has discovered some fantastic fan made co-op campaign rules.  How does it play?  We dive in for the details.

Later we dive into more space battle goodness with Halo Fleet Battles from Spartan Games.  How is this new fleet engagement game and how does it stack up to Firestorm Armada and Star Wars Armada?
