Lots of good stuff for you guys this week, almost every segment is bursting at the seams with good stories and information to share, and then I finish the episode off by talking about one of my new favorite games: Rampage!

Board Games

Rampage - Will discuss more in the board game breakdown this week

Lords of Waterdeep - Finally played the iOS version against other people and not AI

Battlestar Galactica - We've had this game sitting around for a year, glad we got to finally try out the game

Werewolf / One Night Ultimate Werewolf - Had a lot of people for board game night and didn't want to split up into multiple groups, so we played Werewolf using Magic lands for all of the different roles

Forbidden Desert - This week's board game night, got to try this game out for the first time and compare it to the first game (Forbidden Island)

Relative Dimensions #12: "A MagiQuest Honeymoon"

Now that the wedding and honeymoon is all over, I manage to crawl back down into the studio and get Philip over to record a podcast!  We talk about the wedding, some of the stuff Ashley and I did (while not in the hotel room....) during the honeymoon, and some of the games that we have managed to play over the past couple of days.  Plus, I throw in a brief mention of some iOS games that have been keeping me occupied. Topics Discussed: Wedding!
