A little late, but I've got a lot of stuff for you guys this week, such as a Magic segment for the first time in a looooong time! I've also got some thoughts on the Street Fighter Deck Building Game by Cryptozoic, as well as framing the individual encounters in our ongoing Gundam Wing-inspired D&D adventure. Not to mention, a board game breakdown of the Repos/Asmodee game Ca$h 'n Guns (second edition).

Merry Christmas everyone! Just a regular episode this week as I've been so booked that I have been unable to prepare any sort of Christmas special. Don't worry, I've got a couple of new things planned for the new year. In this episode, we talk about Superfight, along with a breakdown of Betrayal at House on the Hill, and we wrap a bow (HA! Christmas joke) on the ongoing D&D campaign I've been discussing.

What's this?  A video game being discussed?  Yes, but not quite, as I recently got into the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft closed beta.  Hearthstone is an online collectible card game based in the Warcraft universe, and you guys will definitely want to check this game out when it comes out of beta.  In addition, I discuss how the Theros Game Day went, how I finally won in X-wing, and elaborate some on the world that I set my recent D&D campaign in.  The episode finishes off with my Board Game Breakdown of Ascension by Stoneblade Entertainment.

Boards & Swords #000: "Who Am I, & What Is This About?"

photo (3)
photo (3)

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know that I'm going to be burying my head in a bunch of work for the rest of the month and unable to publish any blog posts/videos/or podcasts.  But, before I did, I wanted to put out something for you guys to check out while I'm busy.  Recently, I've become a much bigger fan of TableTop gaming, specifically board games and card games.  Ever since, I've had this big desire to put out a podcast where I can talk about these things, but I wasn't able to figure out how I wanted to do it.

Until Now.

What you've got before you now, is a *very* rough idea of what I want to do for this podcast.  I don't have any titles or album art yet, so this is just a barebones pilot episode for me to get some feedback from you guys on how to create this podcast.

In this episode - I introduce myself and give a brief history of my gaming experiences, talk a bit about what I want to do on this podcast, and then go into a review of Wizard of the Coast's latest D&D reprint: the 3.5 Rule Supplement "Magic Item Compendium".

Question of the Week - A question that I'd like answered by you guys and will read responses on my next episodes (for now, email them to chris@ocdcast.com, or comment on this episode).

D&D Review: Against the Slave Lords Reprint (OCDtv#28)

I take a look at Wizards of the Coast's recent reprint of "Against the Slave Lords" - a series of D&D first edition adventures that were designed for tournament play D&D at GenCon years ago.

**Disclaimer: Thanks to Wizards of the Coast for providing me with a review copy of this book to look at**
