Is he a Cool Mini or Not? Peter Shirey is here to talk about being CMON's Play Manager and Retailer Relations Coordinator. Or Not? ...
This is an interview show where I have taken the idea of the tv show “Quantum Leap”, and put our guest in the shoes of Sam Beckett. Time traveling into people's bodies, in our case people we know. And finding out one of two things. If our Sam will walk in that person's shoes, absorbing a character trait or admiring their life. Or if our Sam will change something in their life, for better or worse.
Who will he jump into? And what is coming from CMON in the future? Maybe some Zombicide 2nd edition? Watch and see...
Joined by Eli Mamane, first time designers and publisher, who thinks he is here to talk about his Kickstarter game Vector Wars...Maybe he will, if he can make it through the Quantum Quiz. Join us Live.
Look out for Vector Wars on Kickstarter on the 20th of October
What is vector wars?
Vector Wars is set in a Tron-style universe where the world has run dry of resources and clans fight in a virtual arena to gain one of the last remaining energy sources for their people known as Zetta Orbs. Vector Wars is a 2-player area domination game based on a 9 square board known as The Grid. You place one of your 9 character cards face-down, which gives little to no information to your opponent as to the strength of the card placed. These cards flip to give you an individual flip ability, which you may use to battle to keep control of the grid. Your job is to try and gain the most victory points by maintaining a tactical advantage over your opponent, which will ultimately gain you the victory.
Good times I had with good friends. And they're sometimes the easiest to drag into Your World. Well, that's the case with Ben Maddox. Creator of the wonderful 5 games for doomsday. A board game reviewer that I idolise. A voice actor that makes me quiver in my boots. All round nice guy to hang around with at a Bar, with plenty of colourful stories to tell. And creator of the wonderful 5 Games For Doomsday.
The extremely talented and funny Ben joins me to talk about his passion for board gaming and role-playing, as well as expressing his love for democracy and equality. Also talking about his acting life if and Internet Movie Database status. But which actor would he like to be?

More time jumping with your favourite time jumper, me... Barry. This time I have with me another chat show host, who like me, like to talk to people in the board gaming world. With his own YouTube channel and deluxe studio, Chris Whitpan is the host of “Game All Nite.” A Regular Show that has as a drinks and discussion of our hobby.
This time it is Chris's turn to sit down in the guest seat and spill out his heart about music cinema and board games of course.
Check out his show here
Join me from their corner today is Forrest Bower, a teacher and board game reviewer. Known for his bluntness and strange observations of the board game world, especially with his new news segments over at Bowers Game Corner.
We take some time to talk about being a parent blogger and the effects it has on our children. Dive into what Forrest would like to Dixit...ah! Do, in the board game world if he could. And talk about Time of Legends: Destiny, which is a game that has him the most excited.
And now it's time for another interview. This time it's with someone I've known in the industry for a while now and that is Jamie Johnson from Holy Grail games.
I know a bit about Jamie through our encounters in the past but I wanted to delve a little deeper into what makes Jamie, Jamie. So I put it through the Quantum Quiz to find out what things he would change if he was Sam Beckett in the Quantum Leap TV series.
Warning; this video contains two nuts and some adult language
Jamie also talks about his current project which is running on Kickstarter at the moment, called Titan. Titan is a network construction game set in the distant future, in which you play as employees of Stardrill, an interstellar mining corporation. Stardrill has acquired the mining rights to Saturn’s largest moon – Titan - and is sending in a team to strip it of its resources.
Earn Credits during the game by placing and upgrading Extraction plants, completing Stardrill’s special Objectives, and fulfilling Planetary Orders.
At the end of the game, you’ll score Credits depending on the contents of your hold! The more Deuterium you have, the better, as long as it hasn’t been contaminated…
The Employee with the most Credits at the end of the game becomes Stardrill Employee of the Month!
Watch the video and check out the Kickstarter which is running right as I type this.
Breaking into something new...Interviews.
Well not entirely true. If you have ever watched one of my Burky & Badger Board Game Babble podcasts (or technically listened to it), it you would know so that occasionally we have special guests on the show. And we interview them in a fun game show style. So I've decided to tweak this format into something that I can do on my own.
This is the first of which I hope many such interviews which I tested live on Facebook.My guest, designer David Gerrard from Junk Spirit Games offered to be my guinea pig for the show. And this is that show show where we get to know David and talk about the games he's designed, like Battle of the Bards.
I've basically taking the principals of the TV show Quantum Leap. Placing my guest in the roll all of Sam Beckett, who is uncontrollably being transported into the bodies of people throughout history. Having to make decisions for them to direct the history into a good and positive direction. But in our scenario, our Sam Beckett has control of who they jump into. Which can lead to some interesting and funny stories from the personal life of my guests.
What do you think of this format? Should be something to watch on Twitch or YouTube? And what guests would you like me to find out more about? Lights and comments and let me know.
