Podcast #86: Doctor, My Dice Are Bleeding

You dice are bleeding, you say? Not to worry! It’s nothing a podcast won’t fix. Matt and Quinns kick this one off with a big, hairy discussion of Ultimate Werewolf Legacy, which segues into a discussion of legacy games in general.

Next up they chat about the smooth operations of V-Commandos, which is about to be re-implemented as an official Assassin’s Creed board game. After that they discuss their time spent nursing cubes back to health in the disturbing (and entertaining!) facilities of Dice Hospital, which was a fun surprise for them both. Finally, they consider the carefully orchestrated fish feasts of Uwe Rosenberg’s Nusfjord. Oh, your dice are still bleeding? Oh dear. Well, try to not get it on the carpet. That’s our advice.

Quinns: Hooray! That said, we made this our top story without thinking about how we were going to illustrate it. So up there is just a picture of the real-life town of Nusfjord.

Paul: This isn’t our finest hour, is it?

Quinns: Quick, let’s distract them with the box!
