RDTN Episode 153: Cryptid, Taj Mahal, and Gizmos with special guest, David Waybright

While on vacation, Marty was able to find someone who obviously had nothing to do and filled in for me. David Waybright, from Man vs Meeple, was kind enough to take on the challenge of being grumpy. He failed, but that is okay. We still really appreciate the effort. David and Marty talk about Tiny Epic Mechs that is on Kickstarter now and has already blown past $300k, no chance of this not funding at $15,000. David and Marty also spend time and no telling how many takes doing a 5 Minute Initiative on Cryptid from Osprey Games. Since I haven’t played it, I am interested in their thoughts on it and whether or not I will be taught by Marty or if this is one I will learn on my own. Those two also decide that they need to explore hype for a board game and how it impacts expectations, sales, and initial plays. Don’t want to “hype” this discussion to much so you will not be let down when you listen to it. But before I left on vacation, Marty and I did two reviews as well. Gizmos from CMON is a simple engine builder

RDTN Episode 152: Blitz Bowl, Electric Football and MegaMooseCon

Nostalgia gives us that feeling of a melancholy time from our past when we were happy and can be brought on from a smell, a sight, or even the buzz of a motor vibrating a piece of metal. That is right, we got to enjoy the rebirth of Electric Football from Tudor Games recently and the moment we pushed the button to cause the players to move and I heard that familiar sound, I was filled with nostalgia. I remember playing this game with friends and the excitement as we watched our players “move” across the field like we were at a real football game. We didn’t have a local NFL team in Charlotte back then and this was our way creating our own memories of going to a game. Not only that, we were the coach. We had our playbook and the satisfaction of watching a receiver run a route to perfection and score was a huge sense of accomplishment. But don’t forget the curiosity this game creates because as a kid, I wanted to understand how it worked. Why did the vibrating metal make those little plastic tabs move across the
