RDTN Episode 91: Californication – The 2016 Summer Movie Preview with Dan and Chris

rdtn_summerIt has been a year since we did the last summer movie preview show with Dan Patriss and Chris Kirkman. Funny how that works. Anyway, while the show has some very interesting board gaming information at the start, we spend the majority of the time talking about the upcoming 2016 summer movies. We know, we know, we are a board gaming podcast, but this is always one of our favorite shows to do. It is always fun to just hear everyone’s different perspectives on the upcoming releases. You can tell that Marty and Chris are about the finer points of movies and take into account the various directors, producers, special effects and so forth and Tony and Dan are wanted to just be entertained and being disconnected from the real world while watching.

Item of note from this show is Kirkman’s discussion on Pax East and how it is becoming very board gamer friendly. That was some good informationsecretroom for this con may not be one people would think to go to for board gaming. They may imagine that in order to get to the board gaming area, they need to go through the kitchen to get to some dark, dingy room in the back. Something to think about for 2017 and Boston is a great city to visit if you have never been.

Yes, you will already know how well Captain America is doing at the box office, but who wasn’t going to put that one on their list. Then again, that could be a strategy and see how it is doing and see if you think there is going to be a bigger movie later. Full rules can be found on the Survey form.
