Episode 58 — And We Forgot to Mention the Cool Names

Episode 58 — And We Forgot to Mention the Cool Names

BH2045_0001Pitchers and catchers report to spring training in two weeks but Baseball Highlights: 2045 reported to Punching Cardboard yesterday, so we’re getting a jump on the action. We’ve got cyborgs, we’ve got robots, we’ve got naturals, and we’ve got a card game with a fairly unique take on the sport of baseball that should allow access for anyone with even a passing interest.

We also discuss (ahem!) the avalanche of games either hitting the table or pending, and whether this is a good thing or not (Eric: Yes! – Jim: NO!). All this and a short preview of 1714: The Case of the Catalans lie ahead. Tread carefully (except with the Baseball part because that is a gentile, pastoral sport).

INNINGS:

00:42 — Powers, John’s Lane Release
05:18 — They Were Just There Not to Get Fined
14:49 — Too Many Games (Argue: Fight)!
31:09 — New Dice For Quantum
33:45 — Game Weight. 1714: The Case of the Catalans (preview)
39:16 — Baseball Highlights: 2045 (review)
75:42 — The Two Stories of Kickstarter
