In this episode we talk about the St Louis ASL tournament, Drowned Earth, other industry news and features an interview with Jamey Stegmaier of Stonemaier games.
I just completed my 2nd ASL tournament. I started playing ASL around 13 months ago, and I played in the ASL tournament last July and again this past weekend. The tournament is three days at the end of July and offers a total of five official games – two Friday, two Saturday, and one Sunday. i say official games, because many people get a chance to play additional games in between if time permits. I played six games this weekend, winning one for an official record of 1-4. It was only my second win in full ASL, so I am more than happy to get the one. I had fun, I learned, and I got better. I call it a success.
I am really interested in ordering some Hex and Counter games. I do not own any Compass Games and these are the ones that look the best to me:
I’m always interested in submarine games and I love early WWII French stuff as well as more overlooked/unknown conflicts.
Total impulse buy from CoolStuff
I have been interested in Eminent Domain for awhile, based on the artwork alone. However I dont know how it plays.
These two are expansions? No, stand alones, but the price and artwork were good.
With this one I like japanime games and I’ve had my eye on it for awhile and the price was good. (Thats how impulse buys work)
In which we talk about Dice Tower Con, interview Volko Ruhnke, talk about the Overturn kickstarter disaster, industry news and games we played.
