Adventure Party #34 - Space Based Gaming

We decided to continue the theme of making Christmas recommendations, for this meeting of Adventure Party. With Star Wars about to premier and the release of the new Independence Day trailer, we thought we'd discuss some of our favorite space based games. We recommend and discuss Battlestar GalacticaStar Fleet BattlesMag BlastStar Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game, and Space Hulk.

Glenn’s Review:

Glenn reviews the tabletop war minis game Star Wars: Armada. This is your opportunity to pilot and X-Wing, Tie Fighter, or any other ship in the Star Wars universe. Fantasy Flight Games has done a tremendous job creating a well designed ship minis and great game mechanics for space battles. You can maneuver your ship(s) to try and out fox your opponent(s) and bring victory to your side of the conflict. These are pre-painted miniatures, so you don't have to spend your time getting the colors and paint designs right.

News:

Speaking of Fantasy Flight Games, they have released Star Wars®: Edge of the Empire. This is a new sourcebook to allow your Star Wars RPG character do new and amazing, tech based things. You'll now have access to ideas and stats for weapons, cybernetics, and other technical feats. This will add a whole new dimension to your next Star Wars campaign.

Adventure Party #33 - The Spirit of Non-Competition

With the holidays rapidly approaching, we take an opportunity to discuss our favorite games that involve the spirit of non-competition. Why a theme of non-competition? The holidays are rapidly approaching and in keeping with the theme of peace, we wanted to offer some gaming alternatives to a game goal of winning.
These are mostly board games, with one exception and they could make some great holiday gifts for your favorite gamer. The games we discuss are 
Tales of the Arabian NightsThe Extraordinary Adventures of Baron MunchausenPandemic, and Samurai Spirit.

Glenn’s Review:

Glenn reviews the board game called Mission Red Planet. It has a steam punk feel and it involves mining resources from Mars to deal with the explosive growth of mankind on planet Earth. You and your fellow mining company owners are in a race to get the most ore, ice, and other minerals to make yourself rich... and help humanity. This, up to six player game, is fun to play and not to time consuming. You can find out more about Mission Red Planet at the Board Game Geek website.

News:

Yep, You Can Play Dungeons & Dragons in VR Now
VR Dungeons & Dragons is now a reality thanks to a company called AltSpaceVR. You can now use your OcculusRift or other VR gear to play D&D, in a virtual world, with your friends. You'll have your own avatar and a virtual game mat to show the other players a game map for your D&D characters. It sounds a little meta but looks like it could be a lot of fun. If you're not into Roll20 or other service, this might be a cool way for you to play your favorite RPG.

Kickstarter Spotlight:

Roll Player
Thunderworks Games has an interesting game they are Kickstarting. It's a game about making an RPG character. Talk about meta, this dice game is all about making a true hero of the lands by rolling dice and choosing skills and traits that will make you the most amazing Wizard/Sorcerer, Druid/Ranger, Warrior/Barbarian, Cleric/Bard, Thief/Rogue, Monk/Bard you can possibly be.

The Sci-Fi Survival Guide #4 – Robot Invasion

As this is scheduled for April 1st I thought what about them, when do we ever hear about the viewpoint of the robots. What would you do if the robots came?  How would they interact?  What would their analysis be? Well, on this episode of The Sci-Fi Survival Guide, host Darryl Johnston will try to answer those question and explain exactly what you should do if you're a robot on a recon mission. After the ten steps to survival there is a playback of a recovered file. What secrets will this hold? Will the information contained within help the human race survive?
