We continue experimenting with a few new segments this week - unfortunately I still start the show with jokes.  We then talk about various games like Legend of the Five Rings, Dream On, and Welcome to Walnut Grove.  Our big segment this week is a Top 5 list, but a weird one - games that we are excited for but that we are sure someone else at the table will hate.  Then finally, we mute Collin and Cindy while Philip and I talk RPGs.  Namely, the new Star Trek Adventures RPG.

Lots of great stuff to talk about this week, and I'm not sure what I'm fueled on recording this late one night but I hope the energy for all of the gaming that I have been up to post Gen Con shows. Over the past month, I've gotten to try a bunch of new (to me!) board games and I even had the chance to go to another convention!  There was a small wargaming convention called the "Nova Open" up in Arlington, VA not too long ago and I talk about my experiences at that con.  

Lastly, but certainly not least, I have my last Gen Con interview for you guys, and it's probably my favorite one: Peter Adkison (one of the founders of Wizards of the Coast) talks with me about Chaldea, his most recent project.  Buckle up everyone!

This week, I decide to shake things up a bit and mess around with the format.  After hearing me talk about what I've been doing, we jump right into a discussion with JJ Valentine (@theCaoboi) from the ValentineCast podcast to talk about what kinds of games he's been playing.  I hope you enjoy the discussion - send me some feedback if you want to see more episodes like this!

Not as many board games to discuss this week, so I dive into some featured topics such as my Top 5 App versions of board games and what my thoughts are of DD 5th Edition as it has been almost a year since its release. All of that, plus a breakdown of one of my newfound favorite games: Dead of Winter!

This week, we've got a LOT of board games to talk about. So much, that this episode is just board games. I talk about my experiences on International TableTop Day, playing some digital games, with my wife, and trying out the new board game Dead of Winter. Also, I conduct a very special Board Game Breakdown as it is my first breakdown of a game currently on Kickstarter, Norsaga. It's a very cool game that I think you guys will like, and can still go support.

Whaaaat? A Magic The Gathering Special Edition? That's right, I have had the chance to play the new Dragons of Tarkir set not once, but TWICE since the last episode, and enjoyed the set so much that I decided it was time to bring back the special edition to discuss it. Not a fan of Magic? That's okay, we'll be back next time with a normal episode.

The Cards:

165 New Cards!

Available As: Booster Packs, Fat Packs, Intro Packs

Intro Packs: Mortals of Myth (G/W), Fates Forseen (U/R), Pantheon's Power (W/B), Voracious Rage (R/B), The Wilds and the Deep (G/U)

New Features:

Constellation - Enchantments with constellation abilities represent the divine constellations that fill the night sky—and now the mortal world—of Theros.  An enchantment's constellation ability triggers every time it or another enchantment enters the battlefield under your control. Most of the enchantments with constellation abilities in Journey into Nyx are enchantment creatures, but not all of them.

Strive - A spell with a strive ability lets you pump more mana into it to increase the number of targets.

Bestow, Heroic, Monstrosity are all back

God/Planeswalker Cards

Pre-Release Thoughts

Ended up picking white pack due to promo card.  2-2, with one win being a bye.  Used a new method I heard from MTGyou podcast to sort out my cards.  Originally went W/R, had lots of cheap creatures and some red instants.  Learned after first game I had no meaty creatures and white wasn't really helping me.  Switched up deck to white/green, played much better.

Adventure Time Card Wars - Never seen the show, but interesting game

Quarriors is free on iOS - Haven't tried it yet, but have downloaded it

Tsuro

The Walking Dead (Comic version) - Very weird as a 2 player game, probably works a lot better with more people

Lots of good stuff for you guys this week, almost every segment is bursting at the seams with good stories and information to share, and then I finish the episode off by talking about one of my new favorite games: Rampage!

Board Games

Rampage - Will discuss more in the board game breakdown this week

Lords of Waterdeep - Finally played the iOS version against other people and not AI

Battlestar Galactica - We've had this game sitting around for a year, glad we got to finally try out the game

Werewolf / One Night Ultimate Werewolf - Had a lot of people for board game night and didn't want to split up into multiple groups, so we played Werewolf using Magic lands for all of the different roles

Forbidden Desert - This week's board game night, got to try this game out for the first time and compare it to the first game (Forbidden Island)

New Features:

Tribute - Some monsters demand respect from the denizens of Theros under the threat of terrible consequences. Tribute is a new keyword found on creatures that gives opponents an unfortunate choice: have the creature grow in size, or allow a powerful enters-the-battlefield ability to trigger.

Inspired - With creations of the divine, the epic deeds of mortals, and terrifying monsters all around, inspiration is everywhere on Theros. Inspired is an ability word that appears in italics at the beginning of abilities that trigger whenever the creature with the inspired ability becomes untapped. (An ability word has no rules meaning.)

Archetypes - The Born of the Gods set includes a cycle of creatures that grant your creatures a keyword while making sure your opponents' creatures can't have that same keyword.

Android: Netrunner - Still cannot win at this game! Bought the first data pack, made a pretty killer Haas-Bioroid corp deck

X-wing Miniatures - Also lost. My “tried and true” A-wing setup doesn’t work well against non-swarm builds.

Recently purchased, but can’t wait to play: Forbidden Desert, Rampage

What's this?  A video game being discussed?  Yes, but not quite, as I recently got into the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft closed beta.  Hearthstone is an online collectible card game based in the Warcraft universe, and you guys will definitely want to check this game out when it comes out of beta.  In addition, I discuss how the Theros Game Day went, how I finally won in X-wing, and elaborate some on the world that I set my recent DD campaign in.  The episode finishes off with my Board Game Breakdown of Ascension by Stoneblade Entertainment.

Welcome to Boards Swords - a podcast exploring the world of tabletop gaming.  In this episode, I give some quick thoughts on the new game ROFL, discuss how I've gotten my daughter Chloe and myself into Friday Night Magic, and then briefly mention some of my upcoming adventures for my DD group.  I finish off the episode by breaking down a very popular game that has been used by many as a gateway into board gaming - The Settlers of Catan. I'd love to hear your feedback!  The show is still new, and I'm still looking for ways to improve it.

photo (3) Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know that I'm going to be burying my head in a bunch of work for the rest of the month and unable to publish any blog posts/videos/or podcasts.  But, before I did, I wanted to put out something for you guys to check out while I'm busy.  Recently, I've become a much bigger fan of TableTop gaming, specifically board games and card games.  Ever since, I've had this big desire to put out a podcast where I can talk about these things, but I wasn't able to figure out how I wanted to do it.Until Now.What you've got before you now, is a *very* rough idea of what I want to do for this podcast.  I don't have any titles or album art yet, so this is just a barebones pilot episode for me to get some feedback from you guys on how to create this podcast.In this episode - I introduce myself and give a brief history of my gaming experiences, talk a bit about what I want to do on this podcast, and then go into a review of Wizard of the Coast's latest DD reprint: the 3.5 Rule Supplement "Magic Item Compendium".Question of the Week - A question that I'd like answered by you guys and will read responses on my next episodes (for now, email them to chris@ocdcast.com, or comment on this episode).
