There’s a clown in the drain, but if you think that’s unfair, you haven’t played Joel Finch’s carnival classic, ‘Unfair.’ Joel pops in to the pod to explain why a Funfair is better without one of its ‘F’s’ (Spoiler Alert: It’s the first one). We listen to Matt’s quiz’s theme tune, talk week in geek, Neets and Twooze, somebody wins Arkham Horror the card game and, of course, we talk you through Good Games Publishing, and CMON’s ‘Unfair.’
Put on your silken gowns and come for a walk with us through a serene garden. First we’ll nurture, then pick some flowers, before we stroll down to the palace lake to admire the Harvest Festival display.
In December, we have TWO games for you: Lotus, and Lanterns; both from Renegade Game Studio.
Christopher Chung joins us to talk about the creation of his game, Lanterns. We also do a Matt’s Quiz, announce the winner of Mansions of Madness 2nd ed. in Neets and Twooze, and talk geek.
It’s a double game festival, which means two games to win in December, and two games to get 10% off at your local Good Games Store – it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
Start sorting out sentences alliteration fans, it’s Belly the Beast. No niggling nixies, gone are the giggling goblins – society and everything with it has been gobbled up by a vast creature. What should we do? Well before role playing our way out of the situation, we’re going to dial up the game’s designer, Ben Dutter, for a chat. Come to grips with the next RPG you need to er…digest.

Compelling discussion, lot’s of pro-tips and, finally, the answer to who smells the worst in the Invictus Stream.
Bruno Cathala joins the 7LandHand team to talk about how he became the prolific games designer that we know today. He gives us an ‘Abyss’ news scoop, yes – a 7LandHand SCOOP – he previews the games he has coming out this year and provides young designers with an a,b,c of how to get your game up to scratch.

‘Welcome into our post-apocalyptic zombie infested colony, we’re all friends here…except that guy, he may be a traitor. And Bob’s been eating too many beans?’ …that’s what’s going on in Dead of Winter, Plaid Hat’s first Crossroad Series game. We also have crowd interviews from Gamesfest 2015, Matt’s Quiz and details on how you can WIN Dead of Winter from your local Good Games store!
Sean Layman, co-designer of Rivals: Masters of the Deep joins us to talk about his current Kickstarter campaign.
