Games & Hobbies



In this episode, Sean and Ronan finally chew over some big Essen 2016 names (Railroad Revolution, A Feast for Odin and Fabled Fruit) as well as looking as three more games they have been playing of late (The Grizzled, Jim Henson's: Labyrinth the Board Game and Valeria: Card Kingdoms).

They may have seemed more upbeat in recent shows but in this one they return to have a proper grumble. See what games escaped a good thrashing and what ones tok a beating.

Ronan is joined by Stephen Buonocore to give a publisher's insight into Spiel. Stephen discusses how it  has played a major role in the growth and development of Stronghold Games including how he forges international partnerships, seeks out new games and tries to create the perfect booth experience.

We also chat about all eight of the games debuting for Stronghold games at Spiel this year as well as touching on many other titles.

It is time to preview twelve upcoming releases scheduled to hit our tables from Spiel 2016 at Essen.

This time we weigh up Lorenzo il Magnifico, Of Dreams & Shadows, Adrenaline, Vikings on Board, Armageddon, Legendary Inventors, Pandemic the Cure: Experimental Medications, Age of Thieves, Great Western Trail, The Arrival, When I Dream and London Dread.
