Patreon is a very cool, relativly new, service which easily allows listeners like you to support content producers like the D6 Generation.  Even better it allows us to recognize and reward supporters (aka patrons) in all kinds of interesting ways.

Check out all the details via the link below.  Oh, and if you've ever wondered what we look like we made a video on the page to explain the whole thing.

Raef 'Hollywood' Granger is back to help us take a look at 2013 ... what came out, what did we review, what do we still like?

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.

What elements of today's 'wet navies' make sense in space? Christopher Weuve, former Naval Warfare college professor, joins Craig and Russ to speculate on this sci-fi nerd topic!

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?
