Work In Progress - It’s Elementary Dear Watson, We’re Just Giving it a Bit of a Kick - Sherlock Holmes and Moriaty’s Web

In the first of a new Series, Work In Progress looks at a new Kickstarter project and chats with its creative team.

Joining us on this episode is Jim Keifer and his daughter Lucy, who will be talking about their Kickstarter for their
moving tile, collaborative tabletop game "Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty's Web"

We are more than aware that we have three people on this episode. We also have a special guest in the form of the gardener operating the leaf blower in the background of Jim's audio, so there the occasional blast of sound in the background. We edited him out where we could, but he still butted in and gave his opinion on Pandemic.

The other thing to note is that part of this episode will potentially send you into some kind of nostalgia based haze and Jim tells us about his history working in the industry. Prepare to either be misty eyed. Or just think whut?

It's nothing short of fascinating.

Friends of The Show SCANDAL - Staying In, Making Tea, Not Eating Crisps and Loving Little Dice - Sam Turner

Do you remember the film Michael Caine starred with Kevin Spacey in the 70s?
Or how about how long the gluten free aisle is in Tesco?
If Pandemic did advent Calendars, what would happen?
This, plus many other important topics are discussed between Richard and Sam Turner from The Staying In Podcast. We also talk about some boardgames, how Sam recently got involved in his six sided habit and much more. 
Had a massive amount of fun. Hope you enjoy.
We also need to warn you that the last 5 minutes of this show are quite frankly so full of scandal this may well be the last episode we release with a friend of the show..
It was so much fun, anything less than controversial would have been frankly unacceptable.

Friends of the Show - Don’t Give Up Falling for Lords, Mr Darcy - Jeremy Greer

For our next Friends of the Show Episode, we are joined by Jeremy Greer.
Jeremy runs his own podcast Don't Give Up Skeleton, which is based on the stories of fans of the Dark Souls series of games, as well as co-hosting the Dark Insight Podcast, which is a videogame related podcast.

Jeremy is new to the boardgaming hobby, so we talk a few games he should consider picking up as a new player including Love Letter, Hive and Survive! Escape from Atlantis.

He tells us about his experiences with Marrying Mister Darcy and how he dealt with being thrown into his first ever Dungeons and Dragons game.  In short - he loved it.

We also have a good old chat about the Dark Souls Boardgame Kickstarter, and what our thoughts are on it.

Friends of the Show - Speaking in Code but not saying the D Word. - Gary Butterfield

For our next Friends of the Show Episode, we are joined by fabulous Gary Butterfield who is one half of the Duckfeed.tv network.

Along with his co-host Kole Ross, he hosts a number of  successful podcasts including the Dark Souls focused Bonfiresidechat, The Retrogame look-back  Watch out for Fireballs and the hilarious Abject Suffering.
We really appreciate the time Gary gave us and he was great fun to speak with. 

Gary gives us his thoughts on Codenames, RPG campaigns and we manage to pretty much avoid talking Dark Souls until near the end, where Gary reveals a startling revelation. 

For those unfamiliar with his work, please visit the Duckfeed website http://duckfeed.tv/

You can find Gary on Twitter - https://twitter.com/garybuh

We even splashed out on some spy related theme music courtesy of http://www.bensound.com/royalty-free-music
Which we will probably change for next time now we know how to do it.
