Travis and Holly Hancock launched Facade Games in 2015 with the kickstarter release of their first game, Salem. They never thought it would be anything more than a fun side project. However, it was a huge success and has lead to the creation of their dark cities game series. 6 years and five games later, I talk with Travis about his adventures in g…

Some games are an absolute must have, but for some reason I keep not having them. today we talk about one of those games that is so good there really is no reason for it not to be in my collection. Yet, for some reason I keep not getting it. Everdell.
 
Have you ever had a great idea and then doubted yourself to much to try putting it out there? Creating something great can be a lot of work, but the hardest part is probably just taking the first steps. Today we talk to Jeff Pearce who almost on a whim entered a game into a game design contest. A few years later that game has developed into the hit…
 
It's time to round up all our favorite games coming out on kickstarter! This month we talk about cowboy Zombies, warring factions of woodland critters, a monster cafe, aliens invading mars, and a game about racing up a mountain to get to a public toilet! (we're a little partial to that last one. LOL!)…
 
Ah Raiders of Scythia. Who knew that doing math and learning about history could be so much fun? I guess everyone that already played Raiders of the North Sea knew. Are we late to the party, or is Raiders of Scythia the perfect game to jump onto the renegade game studios with? I certainly do like all the eagles and horses and blood lusting ladies w…

We played a ton of great games so it wasn't easy, but we narrowed it down to our top five. In this episode we talk about those five games and decide which one is number one!…
 
I Think what I love about euro games is that no matter what the theme is the game can be fun. I have zero interest in trains, but the kids and I can't get enough of ticket to ride: first journey! Why is this game so much fun? because it's really really well designed. easy to learn, simple to play, but with depth of strategy that even a 6 year old c…
 
We keep finding new types of games and mechanics that we haven't played before. Pendulum by Stonemaier games uses a unique version of the timed round mechanic, in which all players must carefully time their actions to benefit from the movements of three differently timed sand timers. What at first looks like a game of frantic play turns out to be a…
 
What gives a game staying power? Werewolves of Miller's Hollow is a game that has been around in one form or another for decades, or maybe even longer! It seems like it may be too old to be fun, but like the werewolf on the full moon, it just keeps coming back!
 
Today I speak with Matt Carlson from Wandersquares: The Underwood Tunnels. Matt is the soul creator, marketer and designer of this cool new family friendly RPG.

In this week's episode I speak with Brian Fisher from Kickstarter game Boss Babe. This game is different than anything we've ever seen before. It isn't so much a game, it's more like a statement against multi-level marketing companies, and how they have taken a hold of some of our nearest and dearest. It's funny and it's satire and it's not at all …
 
In this episode of Hot Game Magnet we interview the guys who made Syndicate, a 4x game where you get to play as a mafia organisation in the year 3105.

In today's episode I interview Nalin Chuapetcharasopon, founder of Meeple Marketing, and ask her how someone would go about marketing a board game ready for Kickstarter.

Today’s episode is very special because it’s our 50th episode. Also, it is our very first interview. Today we talk with creator and comic Ray Cashman about his up and coming Power Slam card game.

Sometimes its nice to play a game that's all about the endeavour to push the limits of what humanity can achieve in science and exploration. Most importantly, it's nice to do it better than your opponents. Godspeed, by Pandasaurus games; a game that's not so much about achieving greatness on an alien world as it is about doing it first and for the …
 
It's always been a dream of ours to be locked in the house with all the time in the world to play as many board games as we want. Maybe we should have been careful what we wished for. Maybe we should be grateful that we have so many options to entertain ourselves during a global pandemic. The important thing is that we have lots to talk about in ou…
 
The woodland creatures are not alright. For us, that okay because waging war between the highly asymmetrical factions of ROOT never gets old. Especially now with the new Underworld and Clockwork expansions that bring two new factions, two new maps and a whole forest of automated enemies to make solo, and two player games a richer more fun experienc…

Tonight we review our new favourite game Mechanica. A strange game where one works on the factory floor of a robotic vacuum cleaner factory, trying to produce the most robots for their AI overlord. I love the copy and I love the theme. But one can't help but think that this is a road map to a future hell. Anyway, if you've ever wondered what it wou…
