Episode 31: Cheese Quest: A tabletop game of tactics and sabotage

Gamer Leaf sits down with Phil the creator of Cheese Quest: A tabletop game of tactics and sabotage, which is currently on Kickstarter.

We confess that Game Anywhere Tables are better than bread

We talk about his humble beginings of editing Candy Land ,to make it more difficult, to his start with Magic the Gathering by Wizards of the Coast to his transition into what tabletop has become with carcassonne by Z-Man Games and Dominion by Rio Grande Games. He’s always LOVED games. For Carcasone he just adds expansions, for Dominion to have more players he just adds more cards. We talk about these two games for a bit. He pretty much gives me the low-down on these 2 gateway games. His 1st favorite deck builder for introducing people into deck building is Acension from Stoneblade entertainment. I bring up White Wizard Games’ Star Realms and Tasty Minstriel Gamse’ Cthulu Realms. Phil would love it if Dominion made it so it could be balanced to fit 8 players or so as a party game. He talks about Clank, which is a deck builder with a board. He gives it a lot of praise. Top of his list. He LOVES games. All mechanics as well depending upon how well they’re done. He doesn’t like mechanics that require him to debate, entertaining, or improv.

Cheese Quest, the quest for cheese. Mice in a maze trying to get cheese. Helping self and sabotaging others. He wanted something that was easy to learn and that was good for the entire family. 8+ so good for kids to play together, Kids can play with their parents, and adults can play together.

Cardboard edison helped him playlets his game.

I talk about mention something Carla of of Weird Giraffe Games (who just launched and had her game Stellar Leap funded on Kickstarter) said on We’re not wizards how it is great when a stranger likes your game. ( I think I accidentally called her Molly though, sorry Carla.)  Audience asked him for a print and play so you can play it before you back it, so he made that for you. peter gandia does the art. 5 days in and it crossed 50% funding during our interview.

Cheese Quest Easy to learn and play.

Reviews by Druid City games, Unfiltered Gamer and Edo’s Game Reviews, all on his Kickstarter page.

Episode 30: Robert Asprin’s The Cold Cash War


I confess my undying love of Game Anywhere Table’s and our unofficial hopeful Sponsorship by them.

We sit down with Jonathon from Battle Field Press to talk about his latest project: Robert Asprin’s The Cold Cash War which the Robert Asprin Estate allowed him to create a RPG setting for both the Cephas and Savage Worlds settings. This will make their 13th Savage World Setting.

Jonathon sat down in 1980 to play Dungeon Dragons and hasn’t looked back since. Dungeon Fantasy was his latest Kickstarter prize as his RPG collection ranges incredibly. For Newbies he suggests his Ninja highschool and tales of equestria rpg. Advice he gives to those whom are newer: Find something that is licensed.

He goes into a bit of how the setting of his new game setting might look. And why it might be delivered in 2018.

For AAA Jonathon s\talks about: Hero Lab Character builder and PCGen

To find him online you can go to Battlefield Press website as last resort.

Family Funday Friday Episode 2: Slapshot


Slap shot

Barbarian Leaf loved it.

Gamer Leaf while he loves it says mimics Tom Vassel’s, of The Dice Tower, sentiments about it being glorified war. 1st game Barbarian Leaf states he would buy this game with his own money. Not sure if that’s because he won or he liked the cards. Barbarian gives 2 different opinions on the shape of the score tokens. Princess Leaf likes it too. 3 of 3 Leaf’s approve.

 Hint: When playing this, the bruiser can still loose, but they make the person have to get rid of the cards that they beat.

Unofficial Love of Game Anywhere Tables confessed!

Don’t forget to back Ogre Cheerleader which is on Kickstarter for 3 more


Skid talks about how Nerd Poker turned him onto creating their own podcast.

His favorite RPG would have to be Traveller RPG. He loves the palladium

system. Loved the Critical tables in MERP. 1st thing they did to get famous

is they figured out how iTunes worked, they had everyone who they knew:

If you ever loved me subscribe and download 1st 2 episodes even if you

don’t listen, got them on Hot and New. Had an article about them by Geek

and Sundry. GCP’s Purpose: Introducing people to Role Playing. Raising

awareness of how AWESOME RPGing is, it also creates friendships through

the show. Sounds like an old-time radio show. The story time possibilities.  

He’s inspired us to get on with our adventures in the dice RPG game: Too

Many Bones by Chip Theory Games Skid states it is a lot easier if you sit

down with someone whom plays, or listen to them, Critical Role, Sneak

attach to help you get up to speed, but best way is to play with

someone(s) who already know the game. RPG Academy: If you’re not

having fun you’re doing it wrong.

Advice: Start as simple as you can: Dungeon World (Not a Rule Heavy)

GCP also has a Sub-Reddit (whatever that is) with a link to their Dischord

has people waiting to play online which is a good option.

It’s probably best to start listening to The Glass Cannon podcast at the

begining: otherwise it’d be like watching Breaking Bad the 1st episode

season 5.

FOR AAA Skid talks about: syrinscape by Ben Lumas for their sound

effects for the show Soundsets for all kinds of settings 4 basic sound sets

are free or can purchase, or subscribe for $12.99 for 2 months. You can

sign up once and download every one and unsubscribe and their yours

forever. To make it better.

Nick Lowe from Marvel comics created the skid jingle that skid sings:

Nerdage which is his favorite song ever. Pretty soon there will be a Glass

Cannon subset on Sirenscape.

During Kickstarter Corner I touch upon: Ancient Artifacts which is a lot like

indiana Jones.

Arcade Fighter which reminds me of Street fighter or Mortal combat

Robert Asprin’s The Cold Cash War from Battlefield Press, Inc.

 created by Jonathan M. Thompson

Lewt Ninja’s which has about a week remaining on Kickstarter. They will be at Dragon Con. I touch lightly that 2 of my favorite authors will be there: Larry Correia (author of Monster Hunter Inc) and Dave Butler (author of Rock Band Fights Evil) From what I understand both of them are avid tabletop gamers.

Last but not least a little about Orge Cheerleaders on Kickstarter as well.
