TGT 143 On Topic: Playing Games Again

Today we’re talking about playing games more than once. Is this a cult of the old vs a cult of the new discussion?  Hopefully not. Really what we want to do is look at the pros and cons of playing the same game many times. Are there really cons? Probably, maybe? Oh, and there may have been a slight internet glitch Chris just left in there… Email us at feedback@TabletopGameTalk.com – for questions and feedback.

TGT 142 On Topic: Playing Games Against Yourself

Today we’re talking about playing games solo. NOT playing solo games, that’s completely different. What we’re talking about is playing a non-solo game by yourself taking on multiple player positions. From teaching yourself a new game to trying out different strategies against yourself, we’ll talk about some of the reasons you may want to do this. We’ll also take a look at what types of games are most easily played in this way. Email us at feedback@TabletopGameTalk.com – for questions and feedback.

TGT 141 On Topic: Board Game Media

Today we’re talking about board game media. Turns out, between podcasts and youtube, there is a lot of media created around board games. Today we’re going to talk about some that we like as well as some you’ve told us you like. And we’ll even talk a bit about why we’ve added our voices to all the other media out there.

TGT 140 On Topic: RPGs in the Media

TGT 139 On Topic: RPGs vs. RPGs

Today we’re talking about Role Playing Games vs. Role Playing Games. Basically we’re talking about different Role Playing Games and why one may appeal more than another. We’ll also talk about our likes or dislike about different Role Playing Systems. We all know there are a lot of board games in the world, but would you believe there are almost as many Role Playing Games? There are, and we’re going to talk about all of them!   Email us at feedback@TabletopGameTalk.com – for questions and feedback.

TGT 138 On Topic: RPGs Vs RPGs In A Box

Today we’re talking about Role Play Games vs. Role Play Games “in a box”. What do we mean by an RPG in a box? Do these games scratch the same itch as an RPG? And are they good gateways into full RPGs?  Is this just an excuse to talk about role playing games?  (spoiler alert, yes!) Email us at feedback@TabletopGameTalk.com – for questions and feedback.

TGT 137 On Topic: How The Industry Works

Today we’re talking about what it takes to publish a game. What goes into design and development? What is the size of a typical print run? How much do publishers really make? And we’ll finally answer the question – What should Kickstarter’s role really be? Edit: Ok, honestly, we don’t really don’t talk about those specific questions much at all, but that was our intention, that’s just not where the discussion led us.  It was still a good discussion though!

TGT 136 On Topic: Industry Disruptors

Today we’re talking about the industry disruptors including Kickstarter, Amazon, eBay and YouTube. How are these things good or bad for the industry as a whole and how do they affect our local game stores? Oh, and Kitty and Chris have vastly different ideas on Kickstarter which had the effect of extending the episode as well as creating some after show discussion that is now one of our Patreon extras.

TGT 134 On Topic: Theme

Today we’re talking about theming in games. How much does theme matter? Is a “pasted on theme” really all that bad a thing?
