29:57 - QUESTION OF THE EPISODE

"Which mass market games do you guys still enjoy playing?"

 

38:50 - GAME SPOTLIGHT(s)

DemonSlayer: The Seige of Mt. Kulun

Demonslayer is a Deck Building game from new boardgame publisher EOS Press. Each player takes control of one Sect of the Kunlun Immortals, and they must compete with each other in defeating the dread forces of the Heart-Eaters. By defeating the Heart-Eaters, each player accumulates Cultivation. At the end of the game, once all the Heart-Eaters are defeated, the player with the most Cultivation is the winner.

 

A Touch of Evil: Dark Gotic

 

It's another Deck Building game! This one comes from Flying Frog and is set in their A Touch of Evil universe. Each player represents a particular monster-hunting hero in the game, and that hero determines the player's starting deck and grants a special ability. The heroes work together to some degree to defeat villains and monsters as they collectively lose the game if ten cards land in the shadows during play. That said, the game has only a single winner – the player who has the most investigation points at the end of the game.

MAGE Company proudly presents a new post apocalyptic game for 3-5 players by Charalampos Tsakiris and Malte Kühle.

 

From the ashes of a devastating third World War, a precious few Golden Cities emerge offering hope to those who struggle for survival in the wastelands. Players explore the ruins of the modern world completing quests, honing their skills and maneuvering for social status in order to claim a precious spot as a citizen with a Golden City. To enter the Golden city you must:

Become an expert: Reach 20 skill points

Serve the city: Fulfill three secret quests

Become a nobleman: Get the most possible character points

In each turn, the players can spend action points to do several actions such as moving through the city, raiding buildings, attacking other players, and more. Each player has a specific skill — mechanic, trader, electrician, bodyguard and medic — and has his own unique items to build; those items can be traded off against other items or resources.

The board of the game is formed by 9 different tiles. All over the map, the players find different buildings which they can raid. Each time a player raids a building, a raid card of this type of building is taken and read, which leads to specific circumstances taking place. The player will be made to make various decisions including important moral decisions! Upon resolving the various decisions, you will receive character points. The choices you make, for good or for bad, will lead to specific perks and advantages (or disadvantages) during the progress of the game.
