D6G Ep 70: Dystopian Wars Detailed Review

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?

D6G Ep 69: Forecasting Feats or Failures?  & Civilization Detailed Review

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?

D6G Ep 60: Battles of Westeros Designer Interview & Game Review

We know it's the middle of summer, but winter is coming.  So we thought it would be best to start training now with Fantasy Flight Game's latest release "Battles of Westeros, a Battlelore Game."  (aka BoW)

First the D6G team chats with Robert Kouba, the man behind the new game.  What inspired the game?  And why base it on the Battlelore system?

Later it's time to dive deep into the mechanics of BoW and learn just what makes it tick with a detailed review.  Does the game feel like Battlelore?  Does it capture the world of George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire?

D6G Ep 55: Horus Heresy Interview & Detailed Review

Episode 55 is a mega-sode!  The topic of WH40K Horus Heresy just screamed for extra time to do it justice.

After that, it's off to Games Workshop's world of Warhammer 40,000.  Or is it 30,000?  Anyway ... Join us as we explore the details of the new game from Fantasy Flight Games with none-other than Jeff Tidball.  Learn how Jeff came to work on the project, what were the challenges, and where did all the great ideas come from?

And finally, the big review.  The boys dive deep into the innards of the Horus Heresy game.  Is it worth the money?  Does it capture the theme?  And most importantly... is it fun?

D6G Ep 54: Games for All Ages, Blue Oyster Cult Interview, & Peter Lipton

In Episode 54 we bring you games for all ages, Blue Oyster Cult, Peter Lipton, and even a singing muppet.

Up first the D6G team reviews five games that just about anyone of any age can enjoy.  Great for getting the kids in  your life to the table.  Russ, Craig, and Raef discuss Sorry Sliders, The Black Pirate, Fish Eat Fish, Pengoloo, and Jungle Treasure in detail.

Meanwhile Total Fan Girl has scored an interview with Eric Bloom, the lead singer of Blue Oyster Cult!!  Turns out he's a gamer.  

Finally, back by popular demand (or at least that's what Hollywood tells us) Peter Lipton returns with "Inside the Podcasting Studio" and asks Raef, Russ, and Craig the questions everyone wants to know.  (er again, that's what Raef tells us) 

 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
  • & More

Russ appears on This Week in Wargaming Podcast Ken, the host of This Week in Wargaming (TWiW), was kind enough to invite Russ and TWiW founder Troy on the show to discuss the new tech hotness: The iPad.  Specifically, how will the iPad effect the gaming hobby?  Will it change how we play games, track rules, and manage our books?

Tune in to TWiW Episode AT-11 to listen to our thoughts.

D6G Ep 52: Patents, Warmachine Mk II, and Cryptology

Cryptology, patents, Warmachine Mk 2 and even the CIA all get discussed this episode!  Yep, we're not sure how that happened either.

First up, patents: how do they work and why do you need them?  We had such a great response to our show about Trademarks we asked Romeo from Battlefoam to come on and talk about the how's and why's of patenting something like a fancy pants laser system to cut foam.

Later Total Fan Girl chats with Elonka Dunin, a world renown expert on cryptology who has done work for the CIA!!  But more importantly, she's a gamer.

Finally, the D6G team takes a hard look at Warmachine Mark 2.  The book has been out a couple months now, Force books are on the streets, and the boys have played more than a few games.  Is it everything we hoped for?

Oh, and listen close to the beginning of the show for news about a new product from our friends at Lone Wolf Development!!

D6G Ep 50: Tech Lairs & Malifaux Detailed Review

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.

D6G Ep 49: Trademarks, Terraforming, Painting, & Gaming with the Blind

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:

D6G Ep 47: 2010 Predictions & Mulling Mechanics: Board Games

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.
