Hello everyone, we’re back! We apologize for the delay, but hope to make it up to you with a very special episode: our full recap of WashingCon 3.

Podcast 65 – T.I.M.E. Stories

Welcome back listeners! This week we have another exciting episode of Dragon’s Demize for you! We review T.I.M.E. Stories, a fully cooperative, mystery solving board game. Each game takes place in a different setting, ranging from contemporary America to ancient Egypt to an alternate fantasy timeline. In each scenario, players must work together to track down clues and overcome obstacles. In many ways, T.I.M.E. Stories plays like a board game version of the classic point-and-click adventure games. Check out the full review for more details!

As always, we also talk about what we’ve been playing including Scythe, Mystic Vale, and D&D!

Podcast 50 – Wizard School

Put on your wizard robes and hats, listeners, it’s time to go to Wizard School! This week, Dragon’s Demize reviews Wizard School, the new game from DFTBA games. In this cooperative card game, players take on the role of students attempting to keep their grades up, fight off magical monsters, and survive long enough to graduate. Each player has their own specialties, and uses cards like Spells, Items, and Magical Friends to fend off everything school throws at them, be it monsters or tests. It’s a fun game and amazingly humorous, so be sure to listen as we break it down.

WashingCon – Dave Chalker and Thief’s Market

Dragon’s Demize interviews Rob Daviau at WashingCon

At WashingCon this month, Greg and I had the chance to interview Rob Daviau and talk about his games, the process behind them, his views on gaming as a designer and even some tips for aspiring game designers. It was great to talk to him and get a behind the scenes peek into how he approaches game design. Rob had some great insights about the process of designing games and how adding a narrative or a campaign to games created different game elements. We also got to hear a bit about a game he has in the works with Iello games, scheduled to come out around Gen Con of next year.

We hope that you will enjoy listening to the interview as much as we enjoyed talking to Rob!

As always, thanks to Agata Poniatowski for the art and design and Strangelette for the music.
