Stephen Buonocore of Stronghold Games comes back to the podcast with so many games, if you were to decimate his 2014 lineup, he’d still have nine titles left! We talk a bit about scheduling games from production to street date and what a miracle that can be and a few other industry tidbits. We also go over Stronghold’s upcoming catalog which includes some really juicy games, from Space Cadets expansions on all fronts, through Among the Stars and Core Worlds, to an excellent trick taking game, several nicely weighted Euros and a reprint of the amazing looking Medina. There’s a bit of discussion on the upcoming Vlaada Chvatil game Pictomania and of course, we talk beer. Catch up to Stronghold on Twitter and Facebook as well.

In other news – I’ve launched my Extra Life campaign! I’m out to raise $3500 for children’s hospitals, and Team Troll is out to raise more! I’ve reached out to publishers to support this event, and Stephen of Stronghold Games jumped right in! They’ve got 10 new games on the way this year – and have just launched their pre-orders for many of these titles. Stephen not only donated several games to give away during our events but also made a cash donation to the cause! Thanks!

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
