Though I think it was mainly a cover to go out into his shack and drink.

In other words, "the national pastime of Maine."

Maine is a nation? Golly!  ;)

Not a nation, but we drink like it is.

Hi folks,

thx for another great episode! I must admit that the first episodes at the beginning of the year were wonky by any standards :) but you are getting it all right now, especially Season 2!

The insight from Mark was refreshing! I always like hearing about people's own experiences from their field of work. Way to go forward like that!

Just wanted to add a bit more salt to the Onus! injury - I was one of the vocal folks pointing at the similarities with Battleground: Fantasy Warfare (on Boardgamegeek in my case). For me it would totally suffice if the creators would admit they were inspired by BFW and decided to take it for a spin. Then I would have no objections and would happily wish them all the luck in the world! Even in the case they would totally rework the rules and only the cards stayed.

But they just said "they knew about the existence of BFW". That is simply not true in my book, as when you look at the design of their cards and the design of the BFW cards, you do not only see similar style of top-down art (which, admittedly, in Onus! is better), but more importantly, the stats themselves are identical, even to the slashed numbers and icons. I cannot imagine a game in development, that presents itself as "new", using the same stats and numbers than an older game without the creators knowing about this.

I hate it when people do not give credit to the ideas and games that inspired them, especially when the new game is clearly a "copy" of an older one, even if the rules are tweaked and heading in a different direction.

Anthony Gallela on this week's GrogCast.  And we're coming back to the forums pretty soon to get just us regular guys chatting about games again.
