RDTN Episode 42: Fields of Gold – Trajan, Castles of Burgundy, and Marvel Dice Masters

trajanSummer is upon us and down here in the South, humidity and heat chase us inside so we get more opportunity to play games and boy did we get some games in this past two weeks. Like the title says, we were on a Feld kick to the point where Marty broke the drought again of not buying a game and took advantage of the Barnes & Noble sales and picked up his own copy of Trajan. I can’t wait to borrow it.

cyclopsWe continue our delve into the Marvel Dice Master world with an Organize Play event at our game store. While it wasn’t a tourny or draft event, it was a chance for us to demo the game, play against other people, and talk about the likes and dislikes of the game. Don’t get us wrong, we like the game and while it is fun, we continue to struggle with the strategy to use. That night we saw the Black Widow Super Rare and the Green Goblin “Gobby” and saw how they performed. One thing for sure, the luck of the roll can make or break you in that game. As I said in the podcast, I was down 1-11 in life points and the gentleman I was against pulled two Black Widows from his bag and both rolls resulted in energy, no characters. I pulled a Cyclops and rolled a level 3. With what was on the field already, Cyclop’s ability to kill everything when he attacks, allowed me to pull out a win. Some will hate this about that game, but right now, it doesn’t bother me.

Enjoy the show and don’t forget about the At The Table question over at BGG.
