[Following on from our expedition into Quinns' board game collection and the polite visit to Paul's, it's now Matt's turn. Enjoy, everybody!]

Matt: Contrary to popular belief, I am not a man of infinite luxury. Paul has an entire cupboard just for games - Quintin has a cavernous loft to explore. Many have climbed that ladder and never been seen alive again, fading away to become a new addition to the dark and dusty collage of cardboard and bones. Basically those boys have space to play with. I however, have a shelf.

But it’s a big shelf! Oh my. There’s plenty of room in the rest of my flat, but my wife is a bit of a cheery dictator when it comes to interior design - so the sins of the husband must be tidied away. It’s occasionally annoying, but it does mean I get to live in a genuinely beautiful, tidy place? Swings and roundabouts, life is compromise.

Quinns: *yaaawn*

Oh, good morning! What are you doing in my house? This is weird. It'd be rude to bother the police this early, though. Why don't you just tuck up in bed next to me and we'll look at the games news together?

So far, the best news of 2014 is that this talk by Rob Daviau, designer of Risk Legacy (and the upcoming SeaFall: A Legacy Game), is now online. Delivered at New York University's Practice game design conference last year, it's a fascinating, unexpectedly hilarious hour of insight, and doubles as a preview of SeaFall.

I've embedded it beneath the jump, too. Do make time for it! You'll be glad you did.


The Opener: Ultimate Werewolf & Chilli Con Carne

repulsive yet capable liars, chilli, spooky times, wheely chairs

Neatly reviewed in time for you to place and receive your order in time for the sexiest night of the year. Or was that Pancake Tuesday?

Quinns: Happy Monday, everybody! How was your weekend? Team SU&SD spent ours road-testing Ultimate Werewolf, and after six hours of heavy drinking and heavier lynching, I'm proud to say all our friendships survived intact. A minor miracle, really. Expect a video of our exploits this Friday.

Lots of news this week, so let's get cracking! And let's kick off with the Kickstarter for Marrying Mr. Darcy: A Pride & Prejudice Card Game. Which is... well, it's a Pride & Prejudice card game.
