Episode 151: Chris Cieslik of Asmadi Games and Tabletop News

Hello all! This week we had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Chris Cieslik of Asmadi Games! Not only am I a big fan of Red7, I’ve also been wanting to ask how he created a game in ONE DAY (see: Meow). We also get the story behind how Asmadi ended up being the publisher of Penny Press after it won Deathmatch: Season One. And if you think that all sounds great – wait until you hear what Asmadi is bringing to GenCon!

All this and tabletop news – coming up!

Session 150: Justin’s Back!! Let’s celebrate 150 sessions of Tabletop News!

This is our 150th Session!!! So we had to have one of the founders of GoingLast back on the show: Justin! And when you get two RPG heads on one show, what are they going to do? TALK RPGS! Rich and Justin get down and dirty with some fun comparisons between Pathfinder and Dungeons and Dragons. No animosity here! We all love both games! As always, we squeeze in some tabletop news and Kickstarters we think you should checkout.

Thank you so much for listening to us. We love doing this and hope that we are improving with every episode! If you have feedback, we’d love to hear it over on twitter (@goinglast) or through our Contact Us page!

Here’s looking forward to another 150 episodes of great minis, ridiculous kickstarter videos and new favorite games!

Session 149: Interview with Blackspot Games and Tabletop News

This week we sat down with Steve Ewoldt of Blackspot Games to discuss his Kickstarter 4 the Birds! You may remember Steve from his appearance on Session 130 or, more likely, on CaH’s Tabletop Deathmatch. Back then his bird shoving game was called What the Flock! It still has all the same humor and all the same surprising amount of strategy that it did before. But now it’s polished and ready for prime time!

As always, we also cover the latest in tabletop news and hot Kickstarters. And coming up next week is our big 150th session! What should we do to celebrate?? Let us know in the comments here, or tweet us @goinglast!
