In episode 94 the third chair is filled by Owen Staton. Owen Staton is a Welsh Storyteller, actor and writer who has been a Gamer for 28 years. He has been a long time contributor to the D6 Generation through his segments "Words from Wales."  Recently he  published a CD of his own Stories from Welsh folklore called "Tales from the New Inn". He is handsome in a rugged sort of way and has a morbid fear of Taxidermy.

It's been awhile since we disucess miniature games so we decided to discuss three new miniature releases that have been active in our local gaming groups.  Russ discusses his thoughts on Warmachine Wrath (with a few comments on Hordes Domination), Owen shares his thoughts on the Warhammer Fantsay Battles campaign book "Badlands" and Craig gives us his thoughts after a couple plays of the new miniature war game Mercs.

But first the crew discusses their top gaming related moments of 2011.

In episode 93 the third chair is filled by Stephen Buonocore. Stephen is the co-owner of Stronghold Games, which was formed only 2 years ago, but has already made a big impact in the hobby game industry by publishing great reprints (such as “Survive!” and “Outpost”) as well as great new game designs (such as “Panic Station” and “Core Worlds”).

Fantasy Flight has recently re-release A Game of Thrones, the board game in a new 2nd edition.  Is it better than the original?  What has changed? 

But first, with Stephen on the show we just had to ask, what are the Perils of Publishing?  How does a game go from idea to a pretty box on a store shelf.

The time we all knew would come, but pretended would never arrive: Raef's last episode as a host.  Russ and Craig, with the help of the D6G listeners and Mr. Lipton, travel down memory lane with Hollywood and attempt to send him off in style.

And later.. enough with the mushy stuff, it's time for Pirates!!  The D6G team takes to the high seas with the latest Games Workshop board game modeling mega-box: Dreadfleet.

Extra Life is a great gaming charity event that was started by Sarcastic Gamer as a way to encourage video gamers to have fun and raise money for kids who face battles with medical problems in hospitals around the world.

Gamers pick their hospital, pledge to play games for 24 hours, and try to get sponsors to donate as little as $1 per hour.  It's all done electronically via the Children's Miracle Network and 100% of every dollar donated makes it to the hospitals and the kids.  

In 2010, the folks at Game Salute started encouraging any kind of gamer to get involved.  Board games, card games, RPG's, whatever.  And we at the D6 Generation thought ... Brilliant!  We're in.  So we're back this year to do it again!

If you'd like to help, there are a couple of options.

Option 1: Sponsor to your favorite D6G Personality

  Craig's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here

  Raef's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here

  Russ's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here

  Nicole's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here

Option 2: Participate yourself!  

  Come on, you're a gamer!! Why not sign up, get a pledge or two, and have a GREAT excuse to game all day!  

  To join, head on over to the Game Salute page as it will tell you how to jump in AND how to get on the same team as the D6 Generation.  And you never know, there is a good chance we'll be sending out some prizes to the folks on our team that do well.  Click here for more info on how to get involved.

Wizkids is wasting no time with their Star Trek license.  Their second Star Trek game in as many years promises exploration, discovery, and combat as fleets from the Federation and Klingon Empire face off.  Does the game deliver?  The D6G crew takes a close look in a detailed review.

But first, Raef had a chance to chat with a few different folks from various game companies at GenCon this year.  He shares his notes and expeirences as well as a live interview with the folks behind the roleplaying game Mouseguard.
