Teras Cassidy, of Geek Nation Tours, is in the third chair to help us get our Kaiju on!

Any fan of old school movies featuring men in rubber suites trashing model cities has always dreamed of one day being a giant monster and doing the same.  This episode we review two great filler games which let you do just that!  The dice game "King of Tokyo" and the dexterity game "Rampage" help you live the Kaiju dream without those pesky fore arm tatoos.

But up first: We need to pick a winner for our Space Cadets: Dice Duel contest.  Join us as we listen to all the amazing contest entries.

Dec 31, 2013

When we discovered that Christopher Weuve was not only a former Naval Warfare college professor and a gamer, but also an expert on alien spacecraft...we just HAD to get him on the show.  Imaging our excitment when he also managed to reach out and squeeze Chris Carlson, one of the minds behind the classic game "Harpoon," into the third chair as well!  The D6G takes to the sea!

Up first: Naval Mulling Mechanics: We tackle what kind of key mechanics you really want to see in a naval combat game if you really want to emulate the challenges of naval combat.

Later we jump into a detailed review of Firestorm Armada second edition.  Does it have what it takes to get naval experts excited about this kind of space combat game?

And as a bonus: The My Little Pony collectible card game is out!  Total Fan Girl chats with a very special guest about how the game plays and why it is fun.

Luke Retallack, host of the World's End Radio podccast, brings his expert miniature knowledge back to the show from down under!

Up first we discuss the various aspects of miniature war gaming, what we look for, and which company does it best.  Who, in our opinion, has the best skirmish game? The best vehicles? The best poses?

Later we dive into the hotness that is Malifaux 2e (second edition) from Wyrd Miniatures.  What has changed? Is it better and more streamlined?
