RDTN Episode 173: Top 5 List, Imperial Settlers Roll & Write, Tiny Towns

We are breaking our format a bit in this Episode by doing something we haven’t really done in the past. We list our Top 5 Games that we would not get rid of. However, there is a rule that we have to abide by, it must be on our shelves in order to be in the list. The game can’t be at someone else’s house or we have played and really liked, but never owned a copy. We must have a physical copy of the game in our possession. Some of these are out of print, but some you can easily still get. Vanessa comes back to the mic and she and Marty review the new Imperial Settlers RnW game. She is always a joy to have on the show. After my plays of the game, I will say the mechanic of needing actions and resources something that people may have some challenges with, but after a couple of rolls, they should get it. Enjoy the Episode and in the next one, Marty is going to knock our socks off with his Greatest Hits from Origins.

Munchkin Warhammer 40,000

Games Workshop does not make all their profits by selling miniatures, a solid part of the revenue is generated by licensed products. Those are not just video games, but board games as well. I showed you the Monopoly variant of Warhammer 40,000 already on this blog, and today I'd like to share the new Munchkin […]

RX-78-2 Gundam Ver.3.0 Master Grade - Bandai 1/100 Scale Model Kit [Unboxing and Pre-Assembly Review]

Being the sentimental fool that I am, there was perhaps only one choice of model kit to kickstart my journey into Gunpla, the hobby of assembling and painting Gundam models. Be that as it may, there were still many versions of the iconic RX-78-2 Gundam to choose from, seeing that it was arguably the most widely represented mecha in Bandai's model kit product line. After a fair bit of research, I

RDTN Episode 172: Hadara, Pandemic 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 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 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 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 and not have them buried along with the other expansions. You know how some expansions seem to migrate into the base game?
