Because we’re back from an event…. Our brains are tired from four days of gaming, realising that we probably should have got some sleep, Damn! We sure played some fantastic games! Even after it’s over, let us tell you all about it, right from the beginning, all the way to the end… Can you guess what we’re talking about? Oh? do you really think you know what it was? Nevermind, let us tell you a little story…. This week, there is only one thing on our mind so let’s get to it! Thanks as always to LFG Australia. Go buy your games from them, but also thanks go to the tireless committee members of t ..read more

We’re sooo sleepy….we’ve just flown back from BorderCon, and geez, are our arms tired…. This week is a show of two halves with the first being a quick-fire review of Top Ten! This game, which shot to prominence after being nominated for last year’s Spiel, features Unicorns and poo…for reasons known only to itself! Is is worthy of the nomination? Or is it worthy of the poo? Only the Dice Men know for sure. We then cram in a few cheeky interviews from the who’s who of the BorderCon world! Did you want to hear from designers, competition winners and convention organisers? Of course you did and ..read more

Let’s just say that this episode is so full of goodness, you probably won’t be able to fit dessert in after listening to it! We start of with a serving of mousse…not wait, a serving of Hickory Dickory which is all about mouses or meese or mice! These mice are jumping on and off the minute hand of a clock all trying to delivery items to the chirping Lord Cuckoo before the stroke of midnight! Will your crack squad of mices band together and win the day? Will the cat thwart your mousy plans? Will this game play as well as it looks? And for your next course we serve a refreshing glass of blue mi ..read more

The great thing about this particular episode is that Everybody Wins! Yes, it’s episode 355 and we take to the skies with a little game with a lot of sand, well sand timers anyway…who would think that a small box, fully co-op, real time, one deck game about flying Kites would hit the table? If you like Kites, or co-ops, or real time, or sand timers this may be a game that hits your table soon too! Next it’s time to get comfortable as we feature an interview with gaming legend and author, James Wallis, to discuss his book, Everybody Wins, which is all about the winners (and losers) of the Spiel ..read more

Mark & Garth were lucky enough to feature as guests on the Launch Tabletop Vodcast, Materialise Episode 22, where they talked with Kate Finch and Alannah Kearney about the perils of navigating negative boardgame reviews. It was a very interesting discussion, with us being on the other side of the questions for once, so we figured it worth sharing far & wide. If you are really keen, you can even watch the Video Version on Youtube, but be warned, we are on radio for a reason!

Tonight it’s a publisher ‘feature episode’ as Mark and Garth delve deeply and thirstily into two games that have been generously provided by Stonemaier Games. We start with the latest iteration of wine-making for fun and profit, with Mark talking us through Viticulture World. In this solo and/or co-op journey around the continents, you and your fellow winemakers are battling against the game in search of vines, grapes, wine and ultimately victory points (with a healthy dollop of influence points too). So, if you’re on the hunt to find out what makes this game different, and why you may like i ..read more

Have you ever wanted to just throw it all in and join a band of mercenaries on the hunt for the next big payday? Well, this episode may lead you down a path you won’t finish for days, weeks, months…or even years. We dedicate this whole episode to one publisher…Cephalofair Games and specifically to one designer…Isaac Childres. Garth and Mark start by running through Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion, which has been hitting our table recently, before we push ‘play’ on a recent interview that Mark had with Mr Childres himself. The interview covers a broad range of Gloomyhaveny things including the new ..read more

Some episodes are just bigger than others, and this one is BIG! We start of with a review of 7 Wonders: Architects where you are playing architects all trying to construct your Wonder in a more wonderful way than than the other architects. Oh and it plays up to 7. I wonder how they came up with the name? Well, wonder no more… We then make the jump to light speed and discuss the Star Warsiest Pandemic there ever has been, in Star Wars: The Clone Wars! Will this game do the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs? Will Han shoot first? Will Darth Jar Jar make a long awaited appearance? All we know is that Good ..read more

It’s time for the Dice Men to explore the paradox of quantum superposition as we open a box to see if the cat really is alive or dead in the newest kitty cat game out there…Cat in the box. This offers a new wrinkle in the world of trick-taking games and Leon does a wonderful job of explaining it, which is a paradox considering he doesn’t really know how to play it…I wonder what Schrödinger would make of that? We then get partially naked (for audio purposes only) and head on down to the beach; specifically to Maui which is the latest game in the “beach towel placement for fun and profit” genre ..read more
