It's our 50th show... what are we going to do this time?  Same thing we do every time. 

Up first: Russ and Raef take advantage of Craig being out of the studio briefly to discuss their 'tech lairs'.  How are their electronics set up in their homes?  Where do they game?  What systems do they use?  Listeners have been asking, and now we reveal all.

Later, Craig shows up and we decide we better talk about games again.  This time it's a full review of Malifaux from Wyrd miniatures.  Join us as we travel into the strange world of this unique skirmish game.

All that and our usual 'not too horrible' humor, with features such as:

  • The Hollywood Minute  
  • Rapid Fire
  • What's in the News
  • Total Fan Girl
  • The Score
  • The Inside Scoop
  • & More

Ep 49 is a big show:  Trademark Law, gaming mods for the blind, painting tips, and how to build an old west building are all cramed togeather and somehow make sense.  (we hope)

Up first: Tactica Trademark!  Recently one of our sponsors came under fire for sending out C&D letters regarding their trademark.  Since we actually have a lawyer on staff here at the D6G we thought it would be interesting to go through the ins and outs of Trademark and copyright protection for companies in our industry.  Why do they do it, why should we care, and when should we call foul?

We also have Colen McAlister on from "Lone Wolf Development" to discuss the recent Internet flap over their C&D letters.

Later, Total Fan Girl interviews a physics student who came up with an innovative way to modify Settlers of Catan for sight impared players.

Finally, Craig takes control and gives us a bunch of great painting tips focusing on building terrain.  He even gives step by step instructions on how to build a simple "old west" style building. 

All that and our usual 'not too horrible' humor, with features such as:

  • The Hollywood Minute  
  • Rapid Fire
  • What's in the News
  • Achievements in Gaming

What changes are coming to the game industry in 2010?  The D6G team pulls out their crystal ball and attempts to answer that very question.  Heck, we might even be right about one or two.

Later, a favorite segment makes a return: Mulling Mechanics.  This time around we look at board game mechanics.  What are some common mechanics, how do they work, and what do we think of them?

Plus, there may or may not be some discussion of Avatar throughout the episode. We just can't help it.

We've been boarded by pirates, er privateers! 

The D6G team tackles the new board game Grind from Privateer Press.  How exactly do massive steam jacks play sports?  Now we know.
