Tabletop Game Talk is having a holiday giveaway and we’re making our first giveaway a big one.  To enter, all you need to do is email us at tabletopgametalk@gmail.com.  You’ll get additional entries by liking us on facebook or twitter.  You’ll get three additional entries by sharing or retweeting us.  And if you can figure out how to leave an iTunes review (search for us on iTunes, click on the review tab), you’ll get five entries!

And here are the details of what you could win:

SeaFall – Retail $79.95

SeaFall is a the third in the “Legacy” line of games designed by Rob Daviau.  This follows Risk Legacy and Pandemic Legacy in his series.  SeaFall reveals a world of high sea adventure over 15-20 games.  Most everything you do will have an effect of some sort on the next game.  Will you gain enough glory to rule the seas?

Avalon – Retail  $19.95

Based on the game Resistance, Avalon adds some additional rulls and rules variants.  plays 5-10 players and is a social deduction game.  Can you figure out who the bad guys (red team) are before they are able to fail 3 of the 5 missions?  But even if you’re able to, if they can figure out who Merlin is (who knows all the bad guys), they win anyway!  Yikes!  Lot’s of fun.

The Duke – Retail $39.95

The Duke is a game by Catalyst Game.  It’s a two player game where each player will draw tiles from a bag.  Each tile has a different movement and attack pattern on it.  The twist…When you activate one of these tiles, it flips to reveal a different pattern.  Can you capture your opponent’s duke before they capture yours?

Pendemic (signed by all the hosts of the show) – Retail $39.95

Pandemic is the quintessential co-op game.  This copy is the copy we played our first game of Pandemic with.  The goal, cure 4 diseases before any one of them grows out of control.  Amazing game that promotes team work and corporation.

Unique Monster! – Retail $(priceless)

It’s a Halloween episode!  First we talk about our first game of Pandemic Legacy (spoiler, we really like it).  Then we take a brief look at horror games and ask the question, have we ever really been scared by a game?  About half way through, we go off board games and straight into creepy, scary stories.

Happy Halloween!
