Point 2 Point 44: Components, Hellenes, and a CONTEST!

Jason flies solo again, and can't seem to shut up! Over TWO hours in this solo ep. Jason addresses feedback where he announces the first ever CONTEST for P2P! Then he covers the last month (plus some) of news that fit to print--er--say. He also gives a rundown of things to consider when rating components, along with some "anchor" games that are examples of each "dice-level" rating. After this comes a full review of the GMT block game Hellenes. He also talks over some recent gaming (meeting New Years resolutions so far!), spotlights a pre-order from MMP (along with begging for some of his favorites to be pre-ordered) and announces a new geeklist and poll.

Enjoy! Two hours is a lot, but who can ever have enough P2P??

 

Note: Affiliated Geeklist to appear on BGG on 2/27/11

Hi, guys!

 

Tim: I say submit 'em! Let us sort 'em out :)

 

Ric: Thanks! I'm glad I made it, too. Definitely would like to get to a Block Party, maybe next year. As for Battles of the American Revolution on VASSAL, email me and let's set up a game!

Jason,

 

Great episode!  I am glad you made it to Prezcon.  Hopefully, one day you can make it to Block Party.  I will have to give Hellenes a try soon.  It has been on my shelf and have not yet played it.  Maybe, we can do an open game at WBC.

 

A couple of things - I still like CoH and have decided to retry CC:E.  The other thing is have you one of the Saratoga Series games.  I think you would love it.  Maybe we could try that as well using Vassal?

 

Have a good one and Go Hokies!  Since the Hoosiers are down...  ;(

Woohoo!  I get to post the first comment!

 

Thanks for the show Jason.  Very entertaining.  I'll have to give that contest some thought.  Am I right in assuming  it is one entry per person only?  I was just thinking that I might have a number of ideas for a neurtral army and it would be nice if I could send them all in, instead of trying to pick the best one.
