Podcast 84 – PAX Unplugged

Hey everyone! We’re back with another episode of Dragon’s Demize. This time, we talk to our friend Pedro about his time at the PAX Unplugged board game convention. Three days jam-packed with board games and RPGS sounds like our kind of weekend. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to make it ourselves, but we can live vicariously through him. Hopefully you can too!

Podcast 83 – Between Two Cities

Today on Dragon’s Demize, we talk about a game long overdue for a review: Between Two Cities! Between Two Cities puts players in the role of civic engineers and asks them to design the best cities possible. Careful tile selection and placement are key to maximizing points. But be careful about spending too much effort on one city: your final score is the lower of your two cities. We also review the Capitals expansion, which adds a host of new features.

Podcast 82 – Alien Artifacts

Hello listeners, and welcome back to Dragon’s Demize. On this week’s episode, we review Alien Artifacts, the new “4X-style” game from Portal Games. Alien Artifacts pits 2-5 players against one another as they attempt to maximize the value of galactic resources and build the strongest civilizations. It’s a surprisingly quick game packed with strategic choices. We also discuss the games we’ve been playing including Between Two Cities and Mystic Vale. Also we apologize for the poor audio quality during the first half of the podcast, skip to 13:46 if you’d like to get to the good stuff.

Podcast 81 – Designer Signatures

Welcome back to Dragon’s Demize, dear listeners! On today’s episode, Greg and Jakub talk about some of their favorite game designers. Specifically, we discuss how some designers have signature mechanics that they return to again and again, and what implications that has for game design. It’s a fun, free-form discussion, and we hope you enjoy it! We also encourage feedback, if you think of a designer we missed or any other comments.

We also talk about what we’ve been playing lately, as usual. This week, we discuss Alien Artifacts, Tabletopia shenanigans, and the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game app.
