D6G Ep 138: Firestorm Armada 2nd Edition Review, Naval Mulling Mechanics, My Little Pony CCG

When we discovered that Christopher Weuve was not only a former Naval Warfare college professor and a gamer, but also an expert on alien spacecraft...we just HAD to get him on the show.  Imaging our excitment when he also managed to reach out and squeeze Chris Carlson, one of the minds behind the classic game "Harpoon," into the third chair as well!  The D6G takes to the sea!

Up first: Naval Mulling Mechanics: We tackle what kind of key mechanics you really want to see in a naval combat game if you really want to emulate the challenges of naval combat.

Later we jump into a detailed review of Firestorm Armada second edition.  Does it have what it takes to get naval experts excited about this kind of space combat game?

And as a bonus: The My Little Pony collectible card game is out!  Total Fan Girl chats with a very special guest about how the game plays and why it is fun.

Later it's time to dive into one of Russ's favorite finds at GenCon 2013: Level 7: Omega Protocol from Privateer Press.  What makes this game so innovative? And is it really fair to call it "X-Com the board game?"

The D6G Game List

The D6 Generation game list is now live!  Every game we've ever given one of our "almost hour long" D6G detailed reviews is listed.

Each listing includes box art, quick thoughts from Craig and Russ, the D6G episode number the game was reviewed, and you can click on the game name for even more details.

We'll be sure to keep the list up to date going forward.  Hopefully this will help you quickly find a review of a game if you're trying to recommend it to a friend or even if you just want to re-listen again to brush up on the rules.

It's something listeners have been asking for and we're glad we can finally get it live.  We hope you'll find it handy!

But first, it's a new year and it's time for all geeks to resolve to be even more geeky!  What kinds of things are we going to try and get done in 2013?
