Podcast 68 – Terraforming Mars

Hey hey listeners. Welcome back to Dragon’s Demize. This week, Greg and Jakub are excited to be reviewing Terraforming Mars, the engine-building strategy game about, you guessed it, Terraforming Mars. Players compete to earn the most points by playing cards from their hand and by raising one of three parameters: oxygenation, ocean coverage, and temperature. It’s a great game with a lot of strategic elements, and we hope you enjoy our review.

We also talk about what we’ve been playing lately. Highlights include Eldritch Horror, The Captain is Dead, and Mystic Vale.

Podcast 67 – Tiny Epic Galaxies

Hello listeners! Thank you for joining us on this week’s podcast, where we review Tiny Epic Galaxies, and its new expansion Beyond the Black. Tiny Epic Galaxies is an action management game in which players compete to build the greatest galactic empire ever seen. They do so by sending ships around the galaxy to gather resources and colonize planets. While the base game focuses exclusively on these mechanics, the expansion introduces a new element: unexplored space! Upgrade your ships with the new pilot system and go explore for points and profit.

As usual, we also discuss the games we’ve played recently. This week, that list includes Near & Far, Dingo’s Dreams, and Race for the Galaxy.

Podcast 66 – Nevermore

Hello listeners, and happy Friday! This week on Dragon’s Demize, we took a stab at Nevermore, a card-drafting game inspired (loosely) by the works of Edgar Allen Poe. In Nevermore, players use five different suits of cards to perform various actions, including attacking, regaining health, and earning victory points. Along the way, they also earn powerful Magic cards which they can use to give themselves a boost. Check out the full review for more information!

We also discuss what we’ve been playing lately, including Zombiecide and Viticulture. Plus, Jakub talks about his experiences at this year’s Awesome Con.

Podcast 64 – A Distant Plain

Welcome back, listeners, to another exciting episode of Dragon’s Demize. This week, we review A Distant Plain, a complex strategic wargame based on the War in Afghanistan. As you might expect from such a fraught topic, the game features lots of asymmetry in its design and your allies one turn may be your rivals the next. That said, it’s excellently designed and rewards careful execution of strategies. Check out the full review for more details.

We also talk about what we’ve been playing lately. This week, that includes Tiny Epic Galaxies, Between Two Cities, and, of course, Zombiecide Black Plague.

Podcast 63 – Trains

Welcome back  listeners to another episode of Dragon’s Demize. This week on the podcast, your intrepid hosts review Trains, a combination deck building and route building game set in contemporary Japan. Players compete to connect different stations around Japan, but must also keep their decks from becoming too clogged with industrial waste. Trains takes these popular but distinct gameplay elements and fuses them into one excellent game.

In addition to our review, we also talk about what we’ve been playing lately. This week: Dingo’s Dreams, City of Iron, and more tales from the D&D table.

Podcast 62 – Roll Player

Hello listeners! Welcome back to Dragon’s Demize. Today we’ll be reviewing Roll Player, an ingenious game where players compete to build the best RPG character. Although the game relies heavily on dice, it features a ton of mitigation effects which minimize the randomness. It’s a quick, fun game that will feel especially relevant to anyone who has ever spent hours rolling the “perfect character” for a tabletop RPG.

We also talk about all the great games we’ve been playing lately, including Trains, Mysterium, and last week’s review 10′ to Kill.

Podcast 61 – 10′ To Kill

Hello hello faithful listeners! This week on the podcast, your intrepid hosts review 10′ To Kill, a game about deception, strategy, and murder. Players move pawns around the game in an effort to set up their targets for a kill. The trick comes once a target has been killed, and police officers on the scene can be used to investigate your opponents. It’s an incredibly simply game, and ten minutes is generous for the time it takes to finish a game.

We also catch up on what we’ve been playing, including our marathon Pandemic Legacy session and a classic from Red Raven: City of Iron.

Podcast 60 – Shadowrift

Hey there listeners! On this week’s podcast, Jakub and Greg discuss the punishingly difficult cooperative deck-building game Shadowrift! In Shadowrift, players construct decks in order to protect the town of Haven and defeat the invading monsters. The game features lots of elements that have to be carefully managed, including surviving villagers, walls and magical defenses, and the monsters’ power level. All of this is in addition to crafting a finely tuned deck. It’s a great game, and we hope you’ll tune in to hear us discuss it.

We also talk about our roleplaying (mis)adventures from the past week. Highlights include a new system and a Wizard that was waaay too powerful to tangle with.

Podcast 59 – Mars Needs Mechanics

Welcome back to another exciting installment of Dragon’s Demize. This week, we review Mars Needs Mechanics, a commodity trading game with steampunk flair! In, Mars Needs Mechanics players trade Components for Cogs and vice versa in order to gain the biggest stack of Cogs. Prices fluctuate according to demand, so buying low and selling high is the name of the game. In addition, Components can be used to craft Mechanisms, which give powerful bonuses. It’s a careful balancing act wrapped up in a fun theme.

As always, we also talk about what we’ve been playing. This week, we’re back with more Time Stories (stories) and Santorini.
