In Episode 75 Russ takes the lead in a new "Green Eggs and Ham" style segment trying to convince Craig and Raef that Wrath of Ashardalon, the new D&D Adventure System board game, is worth a try by highlighting what's different from Ravenloft.

Dystopian Wars spread to the podcast this week as Raef, Craig, and Russ venture back into alternate 1870 and investigate a steam punk world at war on land, sea, and air.  A game so big that it sucked up two whole segments of the show!  Has Spartan Games found that the third time is indeed the charm with this one?

Dec 7, 2010

Back in January (Ep 47) the D6G team made some bold (crazy?) predictions of what would happen in 2010.  Now it's time to see if they were right... at all.  Did any of them get anything correct?

Later, the team dives in to Fantasy Flight Game's Sid Meier's Civilization board game.  Does this version of the classic turn based 4x computer game finally get it right?

Russ, Raef, and Craig can hardly contain their excitment as they get to chat with one of their favorite miniatures rules designers Alessio Cavatore!  Learn how he got started in the industry, what he's worked on and what his latest projects are with Mantic and other companies.

After that, Total Fan Girl is very excited to sit down with singer and song writer Marian Call in an extended TFG segment.

And finally, Raef and Russ talk tech and update listeners on their tech lair set up.  How does the new TV tech fit into their set ups?  Do consoles still solve all their needs?  And what the heck does the Kinect have to do with anything?

So many games, so little time... but what should you get excited about?  In the new segment "Hype or Tripe" the D6G team examines some of the things on their radar and tries to decide is it worth the hype?  Or is it gonna be tripe?

Later, Raef has somehow convinced Russ that it's time to review Agricola.  And Russ agrees!  They examine Agricola in detail... why does Raef love it?  How does it play?  Has Russ finally fallen in love with farming? And where was Craig for the second bit?
