BGB Podcast #7 – Kicking and Screaming

Podcasts! Getcha podcasts! Get those takes while they’re hot.

Today we’re talking Kickstarters. Can’t live with ’em, can’t rampantly overspend on incomplete unorthodox game designs without ’em. They’re clearly a major force in the board game hobby, but are they a force for good, or for evil? Or are rhetorical dichotomies only useful as an attention grabbing device, and the truth is somewhere in the middle? It’s probably one of the first two. Before we wrestle with that, we talk about the games we’ve been playing, namely, Imperius, A Tale of Pirates, and Heroes of Land, Air & Sea.

    The comments about the kickstarter were spot on. Zombiecide ended up being more of a buy for minis to use in regular tabletop skirmish for me. There were too many things to do in the regular game..
