Episode 96 – Kickstarter Roundup: The Ninth World, Stellar Leap, Perdition’s Mouth: Abyssal Rift, The Shared Dream, Carthage

We didn’t think we would do another Kickstarter mega-pod for a good long while. However, we’ve gotten so many delivered kickstarters that we had to bring the band back together! (we know, we have some acquisition disorder issues…) So, we are happy to welcome back Liz from Beyond Solitaire and Jeremy from Jambalaya Plays Games.

First up, Jeremy shares about Ninth World: A Skill Building Game in Numenara (5:25), a deckbuilder-esque cooperative game with a RPG feel. Then Liz tells us about the new 4x-style release from our friend Carla Kopp, Stellar Leap (13:30). Jason then brings us away from the short games and talks about two big, honking adventure games which could not be more different – the Euro-style mechanism heavy dungeon crawling game, Perdition’s Mouth: Abyssal Rift (20:17), as well as the urban, story driven adventure game, The Shared Dream (36:47), Finally, the whole gang weighs in about a deckbuilder set in a Roman Colosseum setting, Carthage (48:54).
