  • Tabletop Afternoon 4.22.17 - Rick and Morty: Total Rickall

    I thought we'd never make it back, Morty. For a second there I thought we were gonna be splattered under the heel of a terrible god and be nothing but a shit-stain on the bottom of its foot. Oh wait, we're supposed to play a game this week aren't we? Alright well grab all your guns and make sure Beth is there. And that's how we ended up playing this game.

  • IGC Podcast #88 - A Publisher Knows Better

    One would like to think major publishers do a little research before getting into deals with shady key-sellers but you'd be wrong to believe that.

This, some new game debuts, and a listing of the upcoming game releases rounds-out this podcast like it's a real boy.

  • IGC Podcast #87 - Foolish April

    We have now arrived in April. As some game companies try to trick us into thinking they're funny for others it's business as usual. MadCatz declares bankruptcy, Valve is calling in the big guns for some advice, and Blizzard is remastering StarCraft. A ton of games were announced and we'll tell you about them too. We've got that, the usual release schedule round-up and an update on our fantasy draft now that Mass Effect: Andromeda is out. Did I mention we talk about that for half an hour? Well, now I did. Listen to the show for all the info you could ever want. Sort of.

  • Operation Paladin Is a Go

    Ballistic Impact's first official operation has begun and takes us to Chernarus. A former Soviet Bloc state with a recent history plagued by the communist insurgency of the "Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star", known as the Chedakis by the locals. This problem became compounded when the Chedaki insurgents seized a small Chernarussian base, gaining access to heavy military equipment and becoming much more than a simple thorn in the Chernarussian Governments side. The Russian government, seeing this as potential weakness and being emboldened by their seizure of Crimea and unchallenged interventions in the middle east, took this opportunity to launch a lightning quick offensive. Having crushed the Chernarussian military their more advanced equipment, the Russian military occupied the nation and seemingly began preparations for proceeding further into Europe, forcing a response from NATO.

Tabletop Games List

Some things that might require further explanation:

Max Players - Currently Tabletop Simulator has a limit of 8 players; however it may be possible to play with more players with spectating and streaming. For now just list there maximum number of players as if Tabletop had no restrictions.

Rules Difficulty - This is an estimation of the difficulty for a player to grasp the rules, not necessarily the overall complexity in strategy to execute a game. A good example would be Chess has relatively simple rules (Easy), but has quite complex strategy involved in it, only the rules difficulty is considered here so Chess would be labeled as easy.
Very Easy - Rules can be explained in about a minute or two and can be instantly grasped by players.
Easy - Rules can be explained as we go through the game and there likely will be very little confusion or problems.
Medium - Rules will likely have to be read in advance, videos will need to be watched, etc, and possibly even require a test run but aren't terribly difficult to grasp.
Hard - Will require rulebook to be read, videos watch, AND one or more test runs. The rules have a lot of nuances, phases, there are some difficult to explain concepts that will require experience.
Very Hard - These games require players experienced with the ruleset to play, or lots and lots of preparation time. If we decide to play a Very Hard game it will require some dedication on the part of the players to learn and it likely won't happen within a week's time.

Time per Match - Unless we've previously played it on TT this is an estimation given on sites like Boardgamegeek, Wikipedia, from people experienced in the game or the developers themselves. Generally when one of these estimations are given they assume people know the rules well, move relatively fast, and aren't using Tabletop Simulator (which can slow things down). As such, you can expect the actual time of a first playthrough to be DOUBLE or more the estimation.

Competitive/Cooperative? - Is the game meant to be played with others or is it against each other. Just list out a very basic description of how the competitive or coop elements work in the game if needed.

Please start filling this up with games you want to play especially the Warhammer and D&D stuff.
