This week we get our wands out and DUEL! It’s time for Renegade Game’s Duel of Wands, a wand combat game based in the Kids on Brooms world, a collaborative RPG where witches and wizards in training at a magical school where anything could happen! Promising theme, sounds like something that could make a popular movie or book series, someone should get on that.
We’re also tasting Broken Brix‘s PB&J Mead, made locally in St. Charles, IL, and also where we buy our brewing equipment for our first batch of Blueberry Mead! If you’re looking for gear or advice, this is a great place to go!
We’re also going to be at the Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this weekend! We’ll be touring the dealer hall and demoing games to talk about when we’re at the Bonus Stage later that day! (3:30!) We’ll do some Q&A about gaming and podcasting, review a game we demoed, teach you how to do a wine tasting and have some goodies to hand out! We hope to see you there!
This weekend Suzy and Michael went to see the Dungeons and Dragons Honor Among Thieves preview! Here’s our review as both a life long gamer and D&D fan, and the take from someone who just loves heist movies! We’re all over the world of Faerun tonight, but beware there be spoilers here!
This week Michael and Suzy take on the high-flying world of zeppelin racing! Yes, we’re playing Quicksilver a tabletop game for 2 to 6 people that has you zipping your dirigibles high above the city of Paradise Falls. This game by Split Second Games packs all the thrill and excitement that you remember from the zeppelin races of your youth! Is that a thing? Let’s pretend that’s a thing.
We also taste a California Chardonnay from The Seeker, a nice golden chard that describes itself as “aromas of ripe pineapple, golden apple, Anjou pear and guava with hints of vanilla and baking spice.”
This week we’re getting QUANTIUM! We’re playing Bezier Games’ Cat In The Box, a trick taking card game where you both know and don’t know the cards in your hand until they’re played. We also taste Juggernaut Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon, which is now number one for the most aggressive wine label we’ve seen.
We’ve also started up a Vivino account, and will be adding all the wines we’ve tasted, you can find our profile HERE!
Howdy pardners! Welcome to the Weird West, where the Reckoners are comin’, that there mad scientist down the street has some real odd noises comin’ from his barn, and tumbleweeds can actually kill ya! Sorry, tumblebleed’ll kill ya! Yes, welcome to the world of Doomtown: Reloaded a living card game by AEG where you face off as one of four starting factions. Will you play the Law Dogs, the (more or less) good guys who keep the peace here in the town of Gomorra or will you face off against them as the Sloane Gang, and take over the town through fear? You can even play as the Morgan Cattle Company and fund mad scientists to create gadgets from the far side of your imagination, and if you’ve got the hankern’ you can throw down as the Fourth Ring, a circus of hucksters, harrowed and abominations. We got something for everyone here!
We also take few glasses of TX Blended Whiskey for a spin on this one, because everyone knows Cowboys Don’t Drink Chard. This is a nice smooth whiskey made at Firestone & Robertson Distilling in Fort Worth, TX, where no one has been called out to town square for a shootout in many years, or so I’ve been told. We sip these from Mike’s Frontier Casino glasses from the now defunct wild west themed resort, so it’s all spurs and traildust in this week’s episode!
