Richard is joined by John Mizon of SW Megagames to chat about 30 player huge turnabouts of fun. AND ITS MEGA. 

Links of Notes

Megagames are massive day-long experiences that blend roleplaying, board game-style mechanics, social gameplay and model-UN style simulation to a venue filled with anywhere from 30 to 300 players. Though the themes of games can range from sci-fi colony planets all the way to medieval courts, the unifying feature is simulating a massive, confusing crisis or conflict, and seeing how the existing structures and factions deal with the challenges of information and communication that the situation brings.

Board Town Road - L’il Wiz - Make Something Awful

When you want to play the new hotness but everyone wants to play some they know instead. 

A classic with some slightly tabletop lyrics instead.

Board Town Road..

 

Yeah,I'm gonna take my games to boardgame club,

I'm gonna drive so I can take them all

I'm gonna take my games to boardgame club,

I'm gonna drive so I can take them all.

I got board games in the back,

Board games in my lap Got a special bag,

With board games I can pack.

With the hotness I can source,

(Kickstarters of course.)

Adding to my tally

Spending too much of my lolly.

They are gonna want for nothing (gonna want for nothing)

Of my games, they play nothing

We end up playing nothing.

Always end up chatting,

Catching up and laughing

Always end up playing,

That Mars game that I'm hating,

My life is a Movie

Of Watched it Played and Rulebooks

And learning games each session

Answering their questions

Playing all the new games(Do we have to play a new game?)

They want to play an old game (We know how to play an old game?)

Yeah,I'm gonna take my games to boardgame club,

I'm gonna drive, so I can take them all

I'll not play my games to boardgame club,

Next time, I'll leave them in the car..

Grant Howitt is like opening the door to your home and letting in a force of nature with words and chat and insects and bees and honey and laughing and darkness and horror but not always rolling dice. 

We eventually talk about Heart - The City Beneath but we needed to talk about Grant first and so we touch on creativity in relation to mental health, and writing for masses, creating one pagers and why Martin should not be trusted to make the Honey Chilli Chicken. Just listen. Listen to it all and be jealous that I got to do this for a glorious hour.

Check out that graphic. 

I mean it looks awesome. 

I'm joined by Aaron A Wilson (The A is Silent but deadly) to chat about being creative and running an agency and then Aaron is just a filth monster, and there's a sad bit in the middle and Aaron curses, but it all turns out good in the end. 

You might want to check out Sovereign Skies, which is an intriguing looking game all about control and diplomacy and DOLPHINS!!! And if you can't see the dolphins, make sure you comment very loudly in the kickstarter link below. 

STAY TO THE END, BECAUSE IT'S FUNNY.

Richard is joined by all round nice guy Oliver Kinne, who took the most obvious name for a tabletop games blog, found that no one had bought the domain name, and decided to run with it and has gone on to produce a cornucopia of tabletop content. 

So naturally, we don't bother speaking about any of that but talk about his fascinating story growing up in West Germany, moving to the UK, and how he got into board games. 

Oliver is a genuinely lovely man to know and i hope you take the time to check out all of his marvellous contributions to the hobby.  He does more than we do!

Escapages

Richard is joined by the clever, witty, smart and sharp talking Matt Rowe and he brought along Stephen Lockyer to talk about their Escapages series of books, a series of highly interesting puzzle books which are available online. Their next book flatpak is a puzzle book based around a catalogue and it looks stunning. We had a lot of fun chatting, though warning that some of the audio is a little bit ropey in places.

Board Game Barrage

Oh Dear. That header is really small isn't it? 

Neilan Naicker from my 15th favourite tabletop podcast Boardgame Barrage joins me to not talk about tabletop. We talk about my favourite videogame, The Last of Us, which Neilan was involved in. Then we mention tabletop for a little bit, in the form of being jealous of Paula Deming and Matthew Jude because they are awesome, and then we chat about one question. That's about it. But we had fun.

Dr. Sam Illingworth | Carbon City Zero | Senior Lecturer in Science Communication, Manchester

In my continuing quest to make myself sound as stupid as possible, I am joined by the highly intelligent, articulate and dapper gentleman, Dr Sam Illingworth. We discuss the use of tabletop games in order to spark scientific discussion. Environmental policies in relation to the continuing changing political climate and the responsibility of boardgame designers in relation to sustainability. 

We chat a little about Carbon City Zero, coming to Kickstarter on the 9th September. Which is all about running your own city and pushing it towards being as Carbon Free as possible.

Richard is joined by Mike Bruner from Elixir Board Games to chat about his BBG Award winning game, Queen Bee, which is coming to Kickstarter next month. 

We chat about his wrestling, creative accounting, putting people in arm locks so they playtest your game. Stinging people. Buzzing about flowers. And possible made up fibs. 

Please check out the show notes to find out more about the game as it looks pure honey.

c5e681f33264ff749c7d922b5eee1789_origina

Richard Keene infiltrates our compound with his rampaging dinosaurs and comes in to tell us all about the Dinogenics expansion as well as what happened with the first campaign and why he is releasing a correction pack for the first edition.

He also promised to dance to walk the dinosaur in his T-Rex costume if the campaign hits one million dollars. I NEED TO SEE THIS HAPPEN.
