RDTN Episode 155: Tabletop Showcase – Martin Wallace

Over the six years of doing the Rolling Dice & Taking Names podcast, we have been privileged to have some of incredible designers drop by the show and talk. Once again, the show is graced by another well-known designer who really doesn’t need much introduction. Martin Wallace took some time from his game designs to discuss his new game Wildlands.

Wildlands is being produced by Osprey Games and already has one expansion and a second following in first quarter of 2019. This isn’t a typical Wallace game, but the depth and strategy are there as you would expect. Martin mentions during the show about the use of the Interrupt in the game and just how strategic it is. To be honest, it is something we had not even thought of during our plays. So, the next time it is on the table, we will sure to be taking it into consideration.

Be sure to catch the other content produced this week by the other creators that are part of Tabletop Showcase.

Thanks for listening and be sure and check out our next episode when Ignacy stops by to  discuss Portal’s new game, Monolith Arena.
