Stream Catch-Up - Sonic Sowle Games & Adventure Awaits

4 Comments

Ben got a chance to sit down with Alan from Sonic Sowle Games to discuss the new game, Adventure Awaits, which is going to be coming to Kickstarter at some point this year.

The game is a toolkit for storytelling and offers up a lot of chance for alternative adventures, interesting quests, and maybe a boost to those who want to start role-playing. Or, maybe those who don’t have the time for a proper role-play session every week.

Stream Catch Up - Deneb

8 Comments

Ryan is joined by one of our own awesome community members of OnTableTop, DaveHawes is talking about his tactical miniature game, Deneb.

Click here to check out the Deneb Project here

  • The key mechanics are around choice rather than randomness. A game of Deneb has at most, two coin-tosses for random elements, and everything else is down to player choice.
  • It’s a skirmish-like game, but it uses tiles (which have built-in rules for elevation and other terrain effects) to build a grid for gameplay, and all movement and measurement is tile based.
  • It’s quick to play, with the smallest size games taking 30-60 mins, and the biggest 60-90 mins.

From something that has started on our very own website using the projects system we’re highly excited to see what happens with Deneb and we hope to see Dave back again in the future with the success of his hobby!

Six Gun Showdown is a quick 2 player game of shootouts in the Wild West. The game takes 5-10 minutes to play for ages 9+.

With a quick draw at your side can you keep to speed with Tom from Red Well Games.

2 Comments

It’s time to grab your beer glasses, kegs and welly boots. Ryan is joined by Maggie from Greater Than Games to discuss Homebrewers and Medium.

Homebrewers is an excellent resource management game about creating your own beers inside your own brewery, if you’re looking for a heavier Euro style game to play while you’re attending your favourite beer festival, this is the game for you… BURPP! 

Medium, on the other hand is a perfect way to get to understand your friends and family. Delve deep into the minds of your opponent to relate the best way you can to find the medium word between two others. If I suggested Koala and Chocolate, what would you say?
