We end the show with a HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!
Well, why not. Things didn't quite work out for recording episode 69 so we at least decided to bring you guys a half of an episode! But don't worry because it is chock full of all the things you love like ..... A review of a game you've probably never heard of .... A preview of a game you definitely have never heard of .... some geeky ramblings ..... and a whole lot of Jeff. oh, BUT THERE"S A CONTEST!
AMBYRIA : SHROUD OF THE SHADOW DEMON (WIN A FREE COPY!)
Ambyria is Paw-Warrior's debut game. A fantasy card game, Ambyria is a non-collectible strategy card game with a dash of luck and a pinch of chaos. Ember perfectly caters to the little voice in all of us that holds a grudge. With plenty of opportunities for revenge, you won’t have to listen to that voice for very long before it’s satisfied. Don’t be shy and show no mercy, as you will receive none in return!
Playing as one of four heroes you collect the mysterious ember stones to defeat Ingduhl the Shadow Demon. Only the hero who collects the most ember stones will be able to defeat the Shadow Demon and save the world from his shroud.
In either a fierce dual between hardened experts or a four-player frenzy, players amass ember stones by strategically using card effects and by collecting the cards in their Emberscapes. Unique to Ambyria is concept of an umbrella effect over your play area called the Mode, which will determine the tactic for your turn. Whether you need to gather more resources, or you need more time to play your cards safely, or if you are ready to claim your ember stones, your mode will be important on your path to victory.
JACK THE RIPPER
This is a card game of deception, confusion, and chaos that mixes the interplay of party games like Werewolf and Mafia, the psychology of games like poker, and the action of games like your favorite collectible card game. On top of that, we fit all of this into a primer game that takes fifteen minutes or less to play!
What to expect in the episode and an update on our other NJAGP projects. Plus new headphones make us sound perfessional. (Yes, I know that's spelled wrong.)

29:14 - GAME SPOTLIGHT
As a big shot executive you need to keep your network stacked with the best shows in Prime Time. A basic goal for any TV show is to "win" its time slot for the network by having the highest ratings, and thus the highest ad revenue. As you add talented actors, producers and writers to the show, you’ll have to decide how to arrange your TV Guide to win over the most viewers. Will you be putting your best shows early in the week? What will you leave for the Friday night death slot? Make your choices wisely so you can become the #1 network.
53:04 - TOP FIVE (or 10) MANIFESTO
