OBG 007: It's Just a Gimmick

The On Board Games Roundtable

Some games contain a gimmick. Do these gimmicks make the game better, worse, or neither?

Don, Erik, and Scott discuss these types of games; what works and what doesn't.

Sideboard Discussion

Scott went to Origins and he and Erik discuss it and large conventions in general

Stoplight Reviews

Erik reviews the Z-man Games' B-Movie card games

Scott reviews Coliseum

I'd like to thank Don and Scott for being on the podcast and Philip Jacques for the music this episode.

Since, Don was moving, I got to do the editing. Any problems are my fault.

The On Board Games Round Table

  • Not all games are worth the time it takes to play them, at least not to all people.
  • Scott, Erik, and Donald discuss the differences between victory conditions and victory points.

Stoplight Reviews

  • Erik reviews Cash and Guns
  • Donald reviews Jolly Roger
  • Scott and Donald have an in depth discussion about Quest for the Dragon Lords.

Once again I'd like to thank Scott Nicholson and Erik Dewey for joining me in this episode.
