TGT 057: Hidden Traitor Games

Massive Darkness arrived – and wow, it’s massive.  You have until Sep 29th to enter, just email us with the subject “September Giveaway” at tabletopgametalk@gmail.com

After we get that out of the way, Chris talk about we backed The Island of El Dorado.  We then have a fair amount of feedback, we do a quick question on how quickly games go from “wow” to “huh?” and finally get into our main topic of Hidden Traitor Games.

To be honest, we mostly talk about Battlestar Galactica and Dead of Winter, but we throw a few others in there as well.  And Chris manages to sneak in a name drop a few times (you’ll know it when you hear it).

TGT 056: Gaming Tables

This week we go under the game, to the game table.  We talk about several different companies and options and even come up with a few alternatives suggested by our listeners.

Chris also backed Unstable Unicorns on Kickstarter, we answer a question on how do you know what to kickstart, and there’s a brief updated on our YouTube plans for the future.

Also, we’ve raised $325 for the HoustonFoodBank.org, so thank you all for helping support #GamersVsHarvey.

TGT 055: Solo and Co-op Games

This episode we start by talking a bit about hurricane Harvey.  We’re going to be donating our September patreon money to http://www.houstonfoodbank.org.  Follow the cause with #GamersVsHarvey

Then we get into gaming topics starting with the Chris’s new game he’s Kickstarting, ALEXANDRIA.

We then talk about last weeks episode and how we really need several more episodes to cover it all – we plan to do just that over the next few weeks.

We make it to on topic and talk about Time Stories, Deadline, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time, Flatline and Kitty even snuck in Perfection.  We talk about when a co-op can be turned into a solo game and why we like solo games in general.

Oh -and the game Josh mentioned is called “H.E.A.D. Hunters”.  It’ll be kickstarting soon.

TGT 054: Gaming Trends

This week we first talk about all the new games we came back from Gen Con with.  Then we revisit the question of whether you can judge a game on the first play or not.

We eventually start talking about gaming trends with a lot of input from you which made us realize there are a lot more trends than we originally thought!

 

TGT 053: Gen Con 50 Live Show!

We’re posting this episode 4 days early!  We won’t have a normal Tuesday episode, as this really is episode 53, we just wanted to get it to you in more of a real-time way.

In this episode we talk to you, our listeners, about your experiences at the show.  Chris gives away a ton of games and we all have a great time.  We’ll be back to our regular schedule next week when we talk about gaming trends in the hobby.

TGT 052: Our Favorite Games

If you’re at GenCon 50, stop by for our live show Friday at 6:00pm (8/18/17) at the Crowne Plaza : Pennsylvania Stn B

52 weeks.  One year.  A milestone.  And what do we talk about, games of course.  Some of our favorites in fact.  And some of yours as well.

TGT 051: Managing Your Game Collection

In this episode we talk a lot about Kickstarter in our off topic segment.  Ironic really since Chris didn’t back anything on Kickstarter this week.

On topic it’s all about how to manage your game collection.  Or probably more accurately, how Josh, Kitty, and Chris manage their collections.  From a handful, to a dozen, to a couple hundred we try and add a little order to the chaos.

Oh, and if you listen after the credits you’ll get a bonus of our entire theme song.

TGT 049: Board Game Parties

We talk a about burnout and it’s opposite that we finally call addiction.  Turns out there are a ton of games we are burned out on, but there are also a bunch we can’t see burning out on.  Hmmm…
