Episode 126: Dan Letzring of Letiman Games

November 5, 2020

BJ and Steve chatted up Dan Letzring of Letiman Games, all about news of his three upcoming projects: 

  • Adventure Tactics: Domiane's Tower (hitting retail soon);
  • Questlings story books and family RPG (on Kickstarter this month); and
  • Squire For Hire with a new expansion!

They also discussed recent spicy hot games played including:

  • Meeple Land from Blue Orange Games; and
  • Beyond the Sun from Rio Grande Games.

We had a surprise guest, Spencer Williams from The Lighten Up Initiative and Board Games Are Fun Podcast join everyone for the ENVIE Game. Can the chat krewe continue their winning streak even with the ringer that BJ and Steve have brought in?  Probably, but there's some controversy! 

Next week:  Aaron Wilson & Ian Zang from GRAVITATION GAMES!

Episode 122: Year 2020 Strikes Again: High Rise, Nanga Parbat, & Cartographers Heroes

Episode 122: Year 2020 Strikes Again: High Rise, Nanga Parbat, & Cartographers Heroes

October 8, 2020

BJ was supposed to be chatting with Tim Virnig of Thunderworks Games, but how about that Year 2020, folks!  Luckily for BJ, Verla & Steve were ready to pick up the pieces of this debacle and throw cold water on the dumpster fire. 

So yeah. You'll hear a shift after the first minute, and I apologize in advance for the sound quality (just on my mic, fortunately). 

Anyway.... Verla & Steve and BJ chat about:

  • the new one from Formal Ferret Games, High Rise;
  • dive back into Nanga Parbat from Dr. Finn's Games, and
  • wrap it up with a discussion of the stand alone expansion for Cartographers called Heroes. 

Maybe it really should be called Verla Live!

Episode 119: Daryl Chow & Josh Cappel

Episode 119: Daryl Chow & Josh Cappel

September 17, 2020

The Krewe of Board Game Gumbo chats with Daryl Chow (from Origame) and Josh Cappel (from Burnt Island Games) during their big Kickstarter for In Too Deep. BJ digs the theme: players will "hack" into the minds of cyber enhanced criminals and try to bring down The Syndicate. But if they get too corrupted -- "in too deep" -- they risk losing it all. It is out on Kickstarter from Burnt Island Games.

They also chat about some of the recent hot games Daryl and BJ have played:

Finally, the Name Father is back and only 22% distracted by the Islanders deep run into the playoffs. Steve is focused tonight on The Envie Game -- Daryl & Josh have picked one game together that they have the envie to play. Had Steve and BJ done their usual homework, instead of worrying about hockey and hurricanes, they might have picked this one up pretty easily, but instead, there is a shocking twist ending!
