Howdy members of the D6G Generation,
Here's the first shot at a new approach to our content, "D6G Pip's".  Meaning instead of a massive episode we do a single segment.
In this one Craig starts us off by describing a MASSIVE game of Warhammer 40,000 we played...over 280 power points.  Ever IG model and Space Wolf model we owned was on and 4x8' table vs more pointy eared elves than we cared to count.
 
It...was...awesome!!

D6G Ep 199: Mulling Mechanics - The End Game & 2016 Video Game Thoughts

Luke Retallack, of World's End Radio & Channel Endgame, returns to the third chair!  

Since Luke has a new channel called "EndGame" we thought it would be fun to do a mulling mechanics on 'end game mechanics'.  What do different games do to drive to conclusion and which do we like best? 

Later we cover a topic that Russ loves to talk about but never gets to...video games! Luke has become somewhat of an expert and we dive into where we think things are going and what we like about it in 2016.

D6G Ep 178: Mulling User Experience Mechanics & High Heavens Thoughts

Ryan Lesser is in the third Chair!  Ryan has been helping build great rhythm games (Rockband, Dance Central) at Harmonix for years.  And he's also designed and released High Heavens, an innovative two player strategy game.

Since we've got Ryan on the show we thought we'd talk about something common to both video games and board games, the user experience.  How does his video game experience impact the user experience in board games he designs and plays.

Later we dive into High Heavens.  What inspired Ryan to build the game, how does it play, and what to Craig and Russ think of it?

 And don't miss the exciting results of our Stronghold Games "Space Cadets: Away Missions" contest.  With a special cameo from Stephen Buonocore.

Extra Life: Play Games, Heal Kids

Extra Life is a great gaming charity event that was started by Sarcastic Gamer as a way to encourage video gamers to have fun and raise money for kids who face battles with medical problems in hospitals around the world.

Gamers pick their hospital, pledge to play games for 24 hours, and try to get sponsors to donate as little as $1 per hour.  It's all done electronically via the Children's Miracle Network and 100% of every dollar donated makes it to the hospitals and the kids.  

In 2010, the folks at Game Salute started encouraging any kind of gamer to get involved.  Board games, card games, RPG's, whatever.  And we at the D6 Generation thought ... Brilliant!  We're in.  So we're back this year to do it again!

If you'd like to help, there are a couple of options.

Option 1: Sponsor to your favorite D6G Personality

  Craig's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here

  Russ's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here

Option 2: Participate yourself!  

  Come on, you're a gamer!! Why not sign up, get a pledge or two, and have a GREAT excuse to game all day!
