Gaming Done Right – Episode 38: No, At Once

GamingRightAvatarGaming Done Right, a bi-weekly podcast where we talk all things games hosted by Brian, Mike and Dan.

The show opens up with the gang going through some of their recent Malifaux games and the new masters they have picked up.

Next, the role playing topic for this time around is, “How to run a Mystery.”  Brian is getting ready to kick off a new game with Dan and their wives in the Dresden universe.  We chat a bit about how we might go about setting up a mystery.

Next up, the guys bust out their definitive, completely unbiased,  list of the best Malifaux model at each soul stone cost.  There is good discussion all around and unsurprisingly, Brian’s list is clearly the correct one.

Finally, the guys wrap up with a segment all about a board game that Dan got at GenCon called Myth.  There were lots of ups and downs with this game, but most of the issues might be resolved in the latest Kickstarter for the game.

Gaming Done Right – Episode 37: In A Row

GamingRightAvatarGaming Done Right, a bi-weekly podcast where we talk all things games hosted by Brian, Mike and Dan.

The show opens up with the gang reviewing the hard cover Through the Breach role playing KickStarter exclusive.

Next, the guys tackle what happens to role playing games when life gets in the way.  This is particularly important for Mike.  He is running a game and is expecting a child.  His last kid, totally killed a game.  The guys try to figure out if they can save this one.

Next up, Dan as the moderator for Hot Seat #4.  Dan’s questions are hard.  Usually they are either or questions, but Dan bucks tradition and goes with open ended questions that require thought.

Finally, the guys wrap up with a segment all about taking Malifaux models in factions they don’t belong in.  No rules or guidelines, just plain simple fun.

Desperate Mercs 22 – The Rest of the Beta 3 Models – Boondoggle MISSINGNO

Now that Emissaries were discussed and feedback and musings dropped, now it’s time for the rest of the models including a new set of models that spread across all the faction and hirable everywhere. Plus new models that range from the strange mixes (Neph Hound/Construct Pig/Flying Rats) to the “huh. ok” such as the lovely M̷͇̤̘̻͎̤͖̓̒ͯ̆ͅI̷̴̵̯̫̬͉̝̰͕̓͌̈́ͨŚͪ́͞͏̱̼S͙͕͓̯̠ͦͮ̈̏̕I̯̅̈̎̓ͭ͘͟͠N̛͕̭̞͍ͮG̯͔̜̬̜͎͍̬ͣ͛̈ͬ̍ͪ̓ͧ͝Ṅ͔̪̥̊̋͒ͯ͒ͅO̯͎̗̹͆̽ͣͪ͘͠, the Resser Friekorp

Nick, Josh, and Neverborn Matt are still here along with Sniper Matt (Myth on the Malifaux forums)

First discussion about the Boondoggles and then the rest of the models. As a note, this episode was recorded when the first beta 3 documents dropped so many models have changed, but there are still new models that function the same way now that still have great abilities.

Still, lots of technical talk and learn some unexpected interactions you may find interesting (such as Lust being amazing at charging)

The podcast is divided into two parts talking about the emissaries, but all were included in this download so prepare for a long episode.

Gaming Done Right – Episode 36: Imperial Malifaux

GamingRightAvatarGaming Done Right, a bi-weekly podcast where we talk all things games hosted by Brian, Mike and Dan.

The show opens up with the gang reviewing yet another game they got from GenCon.  So what if it is 6 months later!  Don’t you judge!  The game is Abyss.  The undersea world of mystery and intrigue!

From there the guys transition into discussing how they deceive people while playing Malifaux.  Not cheating mind you, that’s illegal.  We are talking deception that is within the rules.

We follow up with a discussion about Imperial Assault.  A new board game from Fantasy Flight that is basically Descent 2.5 re-skinned as Star Wars.  Tons of fun.  I think the guys current have like 3 different campaigns going on right now.

Lastly, the guys give their reactions to Malifaux Wave 3, or Book 3, or whatever it is.  They mostly skip over Emissaries because Desperate Mercs covered that ground already.
