This week, we're a little light on the board games, but I've got more to share with my D&D 4th Edition campaign, my struggles in building a commander deck, and we have a breakdown of the coop game Forbidden Island!

Going back to my D&D 4e campaign, this week I talk about the party facing the "boss" of the dungeon that I had created.

I begin to construct a Black/Blue Commander deck, and find it much harder than I originally imagined it to be!

Boards & Swords #1: Settlers of Catan, Creating a Dungeon, and Getting into Friday Night Magic

Welcome to Boards & Swords - a podcast exploring the world of tabletop gaming.  In this episode, I give some quick thoughts on the new game ROFL, discuss how I've gotten my daughter Chloe and myself into Friday Night Magic, and then briefly mention some of my upcoming adventures for my D&D group.  I finish off the episode by breaking down a very popular game that has been used by many as a gateway into board gaming - The Settlers of Catan. I'd love to hear your feedback!  The show is still new, and I'm still looking for ways to improve it.
