July 12, 2007 - Origins, ENnies and other awards

Mike, Allan and Chris start with talk of Origins 2007. This includes thoughts on the dealers’ room and laid back pace of the show (2:45), and leads into the Origins Awards (4:54). Chris mentions Slugfest Games, Battlefront and Flames of War (9:33), then throws in a dig at Fantasy Flight and Arkham Horror fulfillment issues (11:11). He brings up Paizo Publishing’s new d20 module series (12:13) as well as Battleground by Your Move Games, still going strong (12:58). Treehouse denied BattleLore the Origins Award this year, which we find impressive (13:32). More dealers’ room thoughts from Chris follow, wherein IPR kicks butt despite being underprepared (15:25). Then there is TerrorWerks, “the new, better True Dungeon”, says Chris (16:20). Next, an informal poll of Origins attendees contributes to an old topic (20:35).

Then we start to jump around a bit. Chris played Zooloretto and Arcadia (22:43). We get into the 2007 ENnies nominees briefly (24:04), then all of us pick over the Star Wars PocketModel TCG (26:19). We come right to the brink of plunging into the debate on what makes a boardgame a miniatures game, then back away quickly (30:33), opting instead to bring up the excellent idea of the Ashcan Front again (32:37). We prepare you for the coming of the second annual Ogre’s Choice Awards, and welcome your input, mostly (35:43). Then Chris starts Currently Playing with lust for the new Battletech goodies coming from Catalyst Game Labs (38:37). Allan played Tortoise and Hare, Wiz War and Spree!, plus his weekly D&D campaign (45:23). Mike felt oddly compelled to subject himself to WarCraft III (47:59). On the way out, Chris mentions hearing about Zombie Fluxx, Munchkin gets more hate, and we promise Ogre’s Choice Awards for next show (48:35).

Comments here. Be sure to tell us what you’d pick for 2007’s Ogre’s Choice Awards!
