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.

It's no secret that we dig games set in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, but usually we're trying to save the world from the evil schemes of otherworldly deities. In Fate of the Elder Gods, though, we get to play as the cultists, and we're trying to summon our eldritch masters, or die trying. The game was designed by Richard Launius, Darrell Louder, and Chris Kirkman, funded on Kickstarter in 2016, and published by Greater Than Games' Fabled Nexus imprint this year.

Did the game drive us mad with Things Man Was Not Meant to Know, or did we complete the task at hand, summon Azathoth into being, and get home in time for dinner? You'll have to listen to the podcast to see if the stars are right.

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.

This week, we're thrilled to bring your our conversation with the one and only Felicia Day! Surely, Day needs no introduction. On this episode, we chat about her new role (Cynder) on Netflix's Skylanders Academy. Day is also a new mom, so we talk extensively about parenthood, the challenges of being a new parent, and the unique challenges she faces as an incredibly busy working mom in the public eye. We talk about embracing our differences (which are our superpowers), helping our kids do the same, and how we can teach our kids to be good to one another and deal with bullying. We also ask her what games she's planning to use to introduce her daughter to gaming, when the time finally comes.
