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?

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?

Kevin Clark of The Warstore joins the D6G crew for Rapid Fire, then we talk about how challenging it was to set up a new convention from scratch.  Kevin fills us in on all the details of The Warstore Weekend.

Later the D6G crew grabs the hot new game from Wizards of the Coast: Castle Ravenloft.  Is it Dungeons and Dragons 4e light?  Or is it a board game gateway to the RPG?  Or something else?  Listen to the rules in detail and decide for yourself.

Smirk and Dagger head honcho Curt Covert joins the D6G crew this time around to discuss what's new with his company including their newest release: Hex Hex XL.

After that the boys take a look at two card games that are NOT, believe it or not, based on the Dominion mechanic!  Up first is the aforementioned Hex Hex XL, does the new bling improve the game?  And how could we resist taking a look at Death Angel: The Space Hulk card game from Fantasy Flight games.  

And don't miss a new listener segment:  Nutshell!

GenCon 2010 is over and we've got some exciting stuff to talk about from our visit.  The boys discuss their entire adventure during an extended Achievements in Gaming.  What they played, what was the new hotness, and highlights.

If you're still with us after all that, be sure to catch Raef and Russ interviewing Matt Wilson.  Matt brings us up to speed with his pet projects, i.e. movies and video games.  And gives us the Privateer Press state of the union, er, pirates.

That should be enough, but why stop there?  Total Fan Girl interviews the cast of The Guild, and we have LIVE FROM GENCON: It's Play by Mob.
