Curt Covert joins Russ and Craig in Episode 101. Curt is the owner and Chief Instigator at Smirk and Dagger Games and the creator of Cutthroat Caverns, Hex Hex, Run for Your Life Candyman and other games that prove "Games are a lot more fun when you can stab a friend in the back".

Up first Curt, Craig, and Russ take a positive look at Kickstarter. How is it helpful and why would a company owner like Curt consider using it?

Later the crew takes a detailed look at the Wizards of the Coast board game "Lords of Waterdeep." Mixing Euro mechanics with a D&D theme?

D6G Ep 99: Summoner Wars & Dungeon Run Detailed Reviews; Finding Time to Game
Angelo Lombardi has been an interview guest on the show in the past, and now he joins us in the third chair. Angelo is the somewhat rare "executive gamer" finding time to game between his duties as COO of a national hotel chain.

Since we had such a busy person on the show we thought it would be a good opportunity to re-visit "Finding Time to Game." How does a busy adult find time to game regularly and balance career and family?

Later, it's a two-fer! We plop on our plaid hats and review both Summoner Wars and Dungeon Run from Plaid Hat Games. Are they fast? Are they fun?
