    S2E31: Chess and Chess alike with Matthew Vernall

    S2E31: Chess and Chess alike with Matthew Vernall

    We talk to Tabletop Gaming’s accidental chess expert, Matthew Vernall about Chess, chess variants, and games that are a bit like chess. Join us for our first external in-person podcast since the before times and experience the slight echo of Chris’ dining room. You’ll learn a lot about chess, and also understand what we mean when we say “bong cloud opening” and “queens go free”.

    We discuss Chris McDowall’s d100 chess variants, which can be found here: https://www.bastionland.com/2020/11/d100-chess-scenarios.html  – we pick some at random and review them.

    We also take a diversion into Matthew’s recently played pile, including Pandemic Legacy Season 0 and mech based RPG Lancer.

    We make some Speile des Jahres predictions which ended up being completely wrong, but don’t we sound confident?

    Games discussed: Chess, Oh My Goods!, Seven Bridges, Root, Hive, Star Realms, Unmatched, Paris La Cite De Lumiere, Patchwork, Millennium Blades, Botanik and Thrive.

    S2E30: Bloodborne: The Board Game with Alex Sonechkina

    S2E30: Bloodborne: The Board Game with Alex Sonechkina

    It's Bloodborne: The Board Game time as we bring you this special edition of the podcast with Chris Eggett and Alex Sonechkina. So grab this issue's painting guide, which is all about the beasties and heroes of Yharnam, as we trickle something like an absolute fan-cast into your ears. We also get a bit confused about Bloodborne/Dark Souls lore, which shows you that, at very least, we've played the games more than we've been on the wiki.

    S2E28: RPG Round Up with Richard Jansen-Parkes

    We also chat: why using props is good, why does Chris seem so drawn to light/OSR systems, isn't it going to be weird to play games together and with humans again?

    S2E26: Sound Box with Horrible Guild

    S2E26: Sound Box with Horrible Guild

    We talk to Lorenzo and Hjalmar of Horrible Guild about their new party game, Sound Box. Being pitched as something like "Pictionary with sounds" the game asks one player to guess which noises the others around the table are making, from a list of cards displayed at the beginning and end of the round. The trick is that everyone is making different noises at the same time, usually with hilarious effect. Join Chris in his chat with the designers and get a chance to hear the strangeness of this game in action.

    The Kickstarter goes live today: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/horribleguild/sound-box-kickstarter-edition
