He walks me through how to find his games on his website.

Rooster Rush Trying to cross the road. Spinning tokens and trying to get crosswalk

No chickens killed or harmed in the making of this game.

Careful Seth’s yawns might be a bit contagious.

Seth was Proud of getting a well known designers (Antoine Bauza & Corentin Lebrat

) to design one of their games.

It’s a fast easy gateway game for $10!

AAA: Corrects us to finally let us know it’s Tripple A instead of alcoholics anonymous like I had been saying forever.

Roll 20 which is online Roleplaying. They got rid of the music integration. Syrenscape is brought up again as it is a great app to bring music into your Roleplaying, just too hard to apply to his roleplaying. Role 20 I guess used to have sound integrations with sound cloud.

Episode 32: BLACK SOULS 2.0 – CHEAPER. BETTER. MORE.

This episode has been unofficially brought to you by Transforming Designs and The Game Anywhere Table (now on Kickstarter)

 

BLACK SOULS 2.0 – CHEAPER. BETTER. MORE.

Gamer Leaf sits down with Dominic of Medieval Lords creator of Black Souls 2.0- Cheaper. Better More. On Kickstarter. A board game in which you are making a hard video game. There is a lot of reverences in this game to Dark Souls Video games. He talks of how Rhado might be more biased as he used to design video games as well.

A bit about Dominic’s beginning in designing. Like stated he used to also design video games such as work with ubiesoft, Games such as: Raving rabbids, Prince of Persia (little flash games to promote for the movie) Hasbro, Heroscape while it was #1. Has been in it for sometime. Stepping away to do own game. This is his 7th. He talks of how hard shipping is for those running Kickstarter’s.  Quartermaster Logistics is helping them with logistics to make 2.0 a better experience for everyone involved. People don’t like shipping charged after campaign. Get this game in the states for $49 which includes shipping. In EU it is $20 for shipping, they are picking up your VAT! Easy game to teach, there’s a video that is only 2.5 minutes! You have to fight to go 1st! None of this fluff on how they choose who goes 1st like on one of my favorite podcasts, Alex’s Dice Hard. People loved it at GenCon. Rhado reviewed 1.0, he might even get a varian named after him.

Dominic’s favorite game ever is Seasons designed by Régis Bonnessée by:  Asmodee, he said it would be good if it was a board game instead of just a card game. But, he really loves it! He has over 3k board games and over 5k video games! What a COOL job he has! He is also a Lecturer for game design degree at
Mages Institute of excellence. His favorites he created are Castle Dukes and Sweet Spot. (Which is a sport game, that people should give a chance. Edo reviews it on it’s page)

Got to love his pronunciation of Monopoly.

Castle Dukes is a Euro game with dexterity in it.

Hitman Holiday would be my favorite, I’ve never tried it, it was his 1st game.

I’m excited about his talking about By the Sea (place holder name) A dice mechanic we have never seen. An exclusive on Getting Geeky with Gamer Leaf. IT HAS TO BE FUN, even though it is first ever, first ever is just a bonus, GOT TO BE FUN! He has 11 games in the making….. Watch Medeval Lords

AAA Dominic talks about What’s App Communication based on internet usage. Popular Chat app. App switches back and forth between $1 and free. If he could make it better he would add games to it. Contact: Medeval Lords

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.

Other podcasts his game is mentioned in or highlighted in: Tantrum House, Family Gamers, Boardgame Closet, Live in medford NJ at the Gamers Vault on Oct 5th. not sure of the time yet +2 Comedy Podcast”.

For AAA: He uses Clash Royal also on iTunes, card game in an arena where you are trying to have minions take down opponents towers. How to find him: Phil Schadt on FB and Twitter

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.

Best place to get any of his settings is Drive thru RPG or go to local game stores

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!
