I'm not sure I was ready for this. This week's podcast logs in almost at a cool one hour fifteen minutes of awesome board game content.
Patrick Hillier reviews the new Splendor for Android App at the 2:08 mark.
I talk a bit about the games I've been playing, Troyes, Divinare and even some Star Realms.
But in between all that you get my preview of the fantastic World's Fair 1893, which is launching on Kickstarter on September 29th, 2015. My wife Kerensa also joins me to talk a bit about it. That all starts around 8:28 in the podcast.
After that we talk a bit about Kickstarter stuff, and I am joined by Matt Wolfe, the designer of Wombat Rescue and Avalanche at Yeti Mountain. We talk about Avalanche at Yeti Mountain, board game design, his new podcast Game Designers of North Carolina Podcast and some upcoming Spiel titles he is looking forward to, a wonderful interview if I do say so myself. That fun starts at the 25:39 mark.
After that we talk a bit about acquisitions and such, and then Eric Booth joins us to review FFG's new game Forbidden Stars. Eric joins us at the 56:51 point.
After that, I give a handful more Spiel titles I am looking forward to learning more about and seeing. Grand Austria Hotel, Fog of Love, Adventure Land, 1844/1854 and Shakespeare. That starts right around the 1:05:25 mark, yup, over an hour!! :)
Thank you all for listening, I really hope you enjoyed it and I would especially love to get some feedback on this episode, it's a bit different than we normally do, first off it's longer, but secondly, there is a LOT of content from a good group of contributors.
