Anyone here listen to gaming podcasts? What do you recommend? I just started with Board Game Insiders' first episode. It was interesting hearing about aspects of the hobby I know nothing about. Thanks!

This morning we opened the Dawn of Champions expansion for Ascension. It's a very busy game, this. I like it, but it lacks a way to get rid of your opponents' Constructs, which makes the Mechana faction extremely powerful.

Clarification: There is one monster that gets rid of Constructs, but that's about it.

As Christians prepare to celebrate Easter, many secular children turn to the joyous, rather more pagan Easter Bunny. But around the world, rabbits have a more prosaic, less chocolatey use. China is both the largest producer and the largest exporter of rabbit meat, while Germany, the biggest importer, spent over $40m on it in 2008 #econarchive (2014) http://econ.st/1y6WPoX

For the life of me, I cannot grok how these dice are supposed to work, let alone if they will accurately do what they claim to do. I mean, I get how the faces are supposed to work, but not the system of using the numbers to add 1 to the results.

Anyone else looked at these? What are your thoughts?
These are self designed custom dice for binary resolutions such as in Arkham or Eldritch based Lovecraftian horror games.

I won't be spending $1/die but it is a good idea and should come with the game.

Seriously tempted by today's Daily Sale over at CSI. $54.99. That's nearly half price.

Agreed, though now it's even easier with X-Wing as there are now three factions. 

They have released one official mission for three players as well, though it requires a specific set of ships. It's in the IG-88 expansion.

#CivilWar
FOR something that ended 150 years ago on April 9th, America’s civil war is strangely newsworthy. Last month the Supreme Court heard a case that asked whether...
