The Thirsty Gamers Podcast – Episode 39 Rambo Announced, Dragonfire Deck Builder, Roll for The Galaxy, & Vikings

We’re back and we kick things off with our International Tabletop day shenanigans, Hex demoed Robits and played Rock, Paper, Wizards! Hex also missed out on playing  Anachrony which we have been hearing a lot of buzz about. In the news, The Thing board game is finally shown off with two different versions. There will be a Dungeons and Dragons deck builder called Dragonfire. Between Two Cities gets a surprising expansion called Capitals. Rambo: The Board Game is a legacy game? Really! May the 4th brought a bunch of expansions with Heart of the Empire for Imperial Assault & Rise of the Empire for Star Wars Rebellion. We also compare a couple of Kickstarters as well for board game designers. Zack teaches Hex one of his favorite games Roll for The Galaxy! Also, Zack played a couple of games at International Tabletop day as well as a sleeper hit called Vikings. And as always stay thirsty for games my friends!

Rambo: The Board Game Announced

Everything Epic has officially licensed the Rambo trilogy to start a new project “Rambo: The Board Game”. This title will officially hit Kickstarter in January of 2018. This project comes on the heels of announcing their other licensed property “Big Trouble in Little China: The Game” which we talked about on a previous podcast.

The game has legacy stye envelopes that go from mission to mission. You’ll also play as Rambo himself with other members of the Baker Team. Everything Epic has described this as a tactical miniatures game from 1-4 players. Also, I’m sure their will be a lot of action, but this game comes with a card fighting mechanic rather then dice-rolling. Which means more strategic planning then what you get on a dice face. Each team member will have their own abilities and with the legacy aspect there’s room for customizing your experience.
