The Dice Section: Cutting Deep Into Board Games

If you like tabletop games and you're looking for an in-depth review of the latest and greatest offerings, you'll love the Dice Section. We spend a whole month playing a single game over and over again, more than is probably healthy, and then record our thoughts on how it held up. It's not a shallow overview... it's a deep and gory Dice Section.

Who doesn't love games about building things? And what's better than building a planet hospitable to human habitation? In Terraforming Mars, you play as corporations vying to make the red planet a hot travel destination for mankind. Literally hot. The dumb rock is freezing, so go ahead and throw some asteroids at it, and pump it full of greenhouse gases, because nobody's coming until that thermometer says it's ready.

The game was designed by Jacob Fryxelius with art by Isaac Fryxelius, and is published in the United States by Stronghold Games.

We also got a chance to check out Greater Than Games' Legends of Sleepy Hollow, so we talk a little about the wild and crazy pastime of backing games on Kickstarter.

The Great Big Beautiful Podcast

The Great Big Beautiful Podcast celebrates popular culture by talking to the people who create it. Hosted by Jamie Greene and Justin Connors.

Today, we're looking to the stars with Bobak Ferdowsi. Ferdowsi first caught the public's attention in 2012 as NASA's "mohawk guy." During?Curiosity's final descent to the surface of Mars, his unmistakable hairstyle nearly stole the spotlight. But he was no plant for increased media coverage of the event (that was just a fortuitous turn of events). Ferdowsi is a systems engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and has been involved with missions to Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Earth. He's also become a vocal advocate for NASA, space exploration, and STEM education. On this episode, we talk about the most exciting work going on at NASA (that you might not know about), the race to Mars and competition with companies like SpaceX, how to inspire kids to go to space, the Europa Clipper project, and scientific literacy in 2017.
