Are organs now that wouldn't that word actually track. Yeah late 2016 that feels right from 200 yeah okay all right I'm with you so park area or fifteen. Don't make me come over there. I will turn this podcast around you know 2015 news from England rich coming out so. I another we've. Figured out that. Origins organs as our best guess. Cleats by reading a game dad had a great game underground they clinking in the knowing as you were elected. Cry Havoc by portal in this yet I don't take. At least people's instructions Wheldon got left many confused now if you do get on that one ring horse thing we'd be in the business he. He's an estimate horses there's a feast for Oden magazine many games with a part of it I still luckily he threw nearly as political. Know what's on its fairly chunky left out of fear and yeah it's massive to yeah you need. A conference room table this is the truth to play kid I mean don't look amazing by half a year at the lifetime pack. I'll mountain man Redgrave and in I played this few times I'd like it yeah yeah you you were talking about it it's really one of the Iran marquee names or he does everything. Art design. Publishing that's consistent with what I know around marketing. Mentions of men a second edition Matt Tennessee flag as manei. Say spice star Larry game Taylor the winner I'm. We who. Ladies and gentlemen we receive no money. From the makers creators or. Artistic collaborators on the game site however we do firmly believe that it is absolutely the best game of 2016. Usage and now I do meters territory Mars is also on this list. Yeah I. Yeah it's right now I stronghold enjoy your pursuits. And. Probably solicit sex. And to make even more difficult for me Star Wars rebellion might Tennessee fight. And those are ordered. You going room to make this tires and shoot to mention never making a couple of Taylor accomplish our current yeah you all right and that's so it's big you sat empire of Eleanor. Think being an empire he emotions you know give a damn what you thank you ask me to myself I. And then there's not honor in addition pink hats are clearly he's coming from him I think yeah. And Matt. Last run in the Korean territories. World's fair 1893 of irony gave games and fox threatening mrs. Coleman are actually seeing a lot of other people play. I have not seen this one I've seen the cover but that mean I haven't seen employed. I was it to I was a mocks. Not for not for the government or somebody else and and it's a table full of people playing in it looks really really cool. Cohort games. Who was working on renting to currently it's going to be on kick starter in the future time they played this game a lot. I beat him and his wife played this game alone and they seem them talking a lump a lot about it on the twitters. And they have a lot of fun with it so. Yeah I can see why it's on now it looks really cool I just gosh I mean it's W something like side you can blood grave Jan and had her tomorrow and stick. Had a feeling rat race that would be the underdog victory for more games and that's all right so that's a whole lot of nominations. For origins what you just run down the maybe what do you think the top five for as soon there's only three for the Kenner we. What are your run down the top three for initial field. OK so now on to that can Hirsch peel out for. Basically the Oscars of our strategy game yes exactly for the passing game parent. There are three nominees for game of the year. For our mom the Ashby will be our first they can Hersh beat. Hulu. Or not she'll connect to carry on. The spiel is listed to if you wanted to check that out coaching on us and Dutch and English feeling now investigators feel our exits. That's an ex gay proven a box game but cosmos. But a lot of that came out this year actually like. Three or four different companies minimum put out little escape from the room kind of that's giving him some legitimacy though like for an amnesty spring game yeah to be on this list and ask him a big deal. Well exit plays. Like. You play a pact. By another pack and a yak pack smaller and smaller entry after the may not be as opposed to the other ones which is a whole new game every time you wanna play it yeah yeah. One of the three or four that's out there can be replayed. But I feel like puzzle games like YDL. Once you solve his right hand. Mean you sell lock somebody else I expect to see a lot of this at and goodwill next year yeah. Our next is raiders of the nor seen this is one that you will be playing in the future it's. Worker placement and you take action when you place we lost connection when you pick up your workers you just had a bunch in my favor words but a and I backed and you kick starter which who come illustrators of the RC. Women aren't the right thing based on again. And then why in the last one for game of the year I think you'll probably. Be very happy with. Careful reminds of you Oilers differing Mars wins. You can look at is the nominees. Four game of the year for SM yeah. While well done all right well thank you for that really really appreciate that that information is it is nice them to put that information on those without. So they would go on try to play these games it's kind of like when they announce the Oscars or something like that not run out and try to see every movie. I usually see. Movie but cookbook and luckily we did that Marty played most of it so that the that that filled still totally went. Should we do like to read quote carpet what's the box where it you had access. About 2 o'clock am down there and rejoin. I wish I had the red carpet music and running running running on. Personnel I yeah. Thanks again for alleged Russian media really like seeing all those listening like that I a big fan of bliss I know we tend to improve prove them on the Yankee nation. Because let's see in general. Objective list you know they've they've neither our nominations there's no no opinion in this that is trauma surgeons and these are not clipping. Correct. And I notice that the top ten games nominee first clearly our number three was surprise you know that's not right after what he's done literally. Just became that of a nominee is I appreciate your for here research on that. Plus you belong to some of the stuff that we're doing right now it's only are looking forward to. Big awards season for forgave Morgan is one thing but. What are we playing right now what's what's exciting and in the moments Sean also was the last thing you play. Oh gosh I'm in clinical and things I've been inspired continuation of C fall right my group really likes it. I know that there's. There's some people out there in the game playing world that it did not enjoy it as much but our group. We have we come at each other leaders lot of fighting going on then it's likely have a whole list of people. In their mind and I'm out there and more in order tornado earlier and earlier in this ever so they are losing your announced. But also I get a chance to check out our Sons of Anarchy men of -- him. This is a game to really flew under the radar and other gale force nine and it's a fantastic game it's a worker placement game based in the U Sons of Anarchy universe. There's a lot of combat a lot of contention for things you can get stuff unless you only control it. And another game or my little sister personal from the corner. Yes but we may have collaborated effort. Of killing her all right does he game of course we troll back if you're saying that she guy can believe triggered in and put herself into the corner. So the it's what one thing that I have a lot of trouble at any time there's a a heavily for mad at gained liens street into an existing property. Sons of Anarchy give a thrown things like that. It can tend to. I. Didn't try too hard a lot of the time like we really wanna make this. Do you like the show or be like the movie or be like the book or whatever but who totally thinking is this one of those games or does it yes. So if they don't it feels like the actually set out to making good game right and use the IP to. Inform it. Ought to make sense does make sense so I mean everything feels very thematic through the show. You're you're running guns you're you're selling drugs. You know and two in a courtroom and right now protocol contraband cargo anywhere. Beat every knows let's go to trucks. Each gang has her own their own feel. There's the very basic where each gang is the same but then you flip it over if you played for an article came number beast got. Different time. Things that allows him to do things a little better a little faster a little quicker than the other the other gangs aren't so I don't. My TDs video game cover man to death contraband. I. Yeah. You all be assimilated well done sir. And contraband is amazing video game cover it just so good. So this is one Gary I'd remain in people taking this out you can get are really cheap because again they're just kind of flew on the rare for moving through it's worker placement in its area control yeah. And and inviting inviting. I've played a lot of social interaction games myself you're your resistance lose your Ku. He secret Hitler's. Where a lot of that lately that's that's been kind of my main them I mean that is lately in and these are some MIA most most favorite game that really like the the well the social interaction aspect of it I like that you're not just simply playing a board game and you're playing against the deck we're playing against the dice roll. You actually have to play against people and bat. To meet. Is the essence of gaming and I love that aspect of it in and I gotta say I think we played. What are we play three games are four games secret Hitler when we're gonna look finalized and I think I was Hitler. All the almost every time yeah yeah exactly and I played excellently thank you you today and you mean every turn and I'm not sure how. Hi Iraq. Such as well let's just say you're a little bit of practice that. And none none of your fashion no no I've got fascist. But anyway are the podcast what are you play Josh. You guys that senior UMB issues mean did you draft. Can't jump trying to yeah it's like it's in the race for the galaxy universe yeah realm of games. But it's card game can play in twenty minutes rely. I liked that about it I like that I'd like did you get all of the flavor. Of the race for the galaxy. There's. Almost no set up. And we're done in twenty minutes. Down and any I love universal universe games and low Mandarin universe all the Angela yes and this was role for the OC race for the galaxy. And now Joan transit card you have all these varieties of pick your game styles. Yeah united guiding get a typically just do and I really dig into like them to a boil down. Aspect yet for the game GAAP. And Kathleen everything in a normal thing and let's play into shorter run time cool men but without actually taking anything away from the game a lot of times if they try to do that interest give something back and make it more accessible now way. You can lose a lot of the feeling of the game that did not happen here. Jump drive I think very very adequately captures all of the great stuff from from race for the galaxy but again when you said boils it down and gives you just like that hate. Here's the feel of the universe. How would you like to be done this in fifteen minutes we conclude. Plague and yes right away who originally held in every time here though. My favorite one that we played I played with you Chris was true. Yeah act you know super breaking news or anything you know but to add cherries on the other hand is totally. At least the other patrons because. They are an hour and a host of knock off some comments that remained and now. I'm killing your route uses. I mean this isn't what that they're not IA assassin and if you could time I am like yeah I got a lift up well I think that's enough of us talking about stuff that we like although that's really all we do on the show. Let's get right to our our first interview of the day we've got a designers did indeed any from gunshot games. I think Sean you've got a few questions for the fellows are just you know I do actually. So this is Ben and Danny they started super awesome games back in 2012. Ben and Danny are actually designers in the industry for awhile they designed of the legendary encounter series which I know we all alone we have legendary cutters aliens predator fireflies. They also worked on the Versa systems a marvel vs system. And be it sees no they also did other worlds of work frustrating game though who go way back. So right now they've been working with gunshot games on a new game and that is our own kicks are called. Headhunters say guys they don't get malaria. Free. Renewed vines so why don't shoot till all the folks out there and podcast land wet head hunters is all about. Well our head hunters is. All of our new Qaeda is still a few. Basically a I each player has these five inch tall. The collectible figure our core community health where you can open the head of the talk enough to restore all the components for the kids Judah that that go up 36 car at all like extreme measure movement. And got blatant copy of our problems that you put the figure out why you fly. And even begin to actually go one on one skirmish game although you can buy your players or players we've redesigned it. Pretty sure why won't be really on which a huge challenge for each player only. Thought control one miniatures and that's where there aren't coming in could meet a lot of little water while background would treat our games are. Gained a lot of them are already different card that can have combos not gonna stuff so these bullet in my hybrid card game and god tactical. We've been around on the call eight. You know I tell the other cards basically our. A part of what you're doing for your movement so. There's like a typical of skirmish games that require you to you have every large area to play and or you have to have like giving border or for specific Kyle similar kind of stuff. And all that is just in there within that one figure that you get right. How exactly each characters start to forge terrain because they play. 36 play 36 inch street are thirty and thirty in Spain you can place huge environmental I think it. And there and here I wasn't portraying currently put them out on that face. And they sort of you know all our people that are sort of find cover in. I was golden like a little all of them Falwell for a mission to HIV drug and Turkey always been like that. We can we try to let. Fact a lot in Quebec and what I mean you're immune to ordinary court ruling and literally cannot figure out. And the and the no platforms all allowing you to finish early you can open and continue to move anywhere you want on the open on the screen you want to. But where you want to please are you put your ballot or don't personally believe you're OK now they are each period sort of always on. Even and you know there are others are especially in open board thanks and appreciation for like our. Should I go behind. Playing someone my apple is in a car accident. And that is where I thought that the net written all settlement. You got a lot of really cool fears as well I mean this is it if you relieve limbs together this collectible toy a aspect as well as the game aspect. If you're a part Rossum a different figures that you've got. Absolutely absolutely absurd core I'm barbaric. You are blinking you know viking warrior. And we haven't much you love who relayed. Figure out of Mexican but of course you have. Wish I could remove what sort of being a button and I guess she couldn't turn into an alcohol and she tried. Should try to hide behind all of them and ethnic food Satan will be little creepy got the ball kid friendly Erica. And then we have our drew who is day I was fly over warrior. Who worked so we've gotten injured shin guards checking the clothing work with Egyptian women aren't. He's. It and we had them. The robot ultimately how hard I did I would feel a robot from the future. And he is important to show all the the pastor's heart. The thing for the benefit that. Do you guys have four figures to start with but there's a lot of figures. That you are stretch going out. As the campaign will continue so do me a lot more stuff that you condense. Absolutely yeah we can totally do I didn't develop flu before we started where. Secular run there. Followed a lot of good the next one of the approximately unlock this type of assertion and then run courier. We have our millionaires or as little sort of like face. Soldier or save it's it's not really about it and I health. From the future either actually from the same time and we now so we're actually in very little period of fiction about all of we're also there's sort of from the same time they're from the future we have done and Corbett who was named fox or from the eighteenth century he did not a lot of outrageous acts. We amazing that it Bly and come to a master. And we blackjack in England I would think belly and that opened sharing process. I've been very. What I felt an although or even who's sort of a classic mysterious. Major. And other. Felt sorry I dissidents and you guys just put together are like this who's been into homer for quite awhile. Yeah I think we're caught letting go to Ricci didn't know what would you have thought egyptians he had the product to meet the product. Design should stand to go bad and he tries until I'm gonna talk accompanied to and during a came and I think it is really our world.
