Each month, several of the podcasts on the Dice Tower Network are going to participate in the Dice Tower Network Game of the Month Club.

We'll pick a game that we will all play then talk about on our respective shows. Discussions will include reviews, history, the game design, etc. Games will range from oldies but goodies, to the new kids on the blocks.

We'd love for others to take time and play that same game during the month and post your thoughts or comments about that game here in response to the entry for that game.

Thanks to Marty Connell (wolfpackee) for getting the ball rolling on this.

DTN GOTM April 2014: Settlers of Catan

To start we thought we'd go with the classic Settlers of Catan.

Here is the GOTM thread in the Dice Tower Guild where Settlers was discussed.

Good luck trying to get the longest road...or biggest army!

DTN GOTM May 2014: Dungeons and Dragons Adventure System Board Games

That means we will be talking about any, or all, of the following:
Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon
Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Ravenloft Board Game
Dungeons & Dragons: The Legend of Drizzt Board Game

To follow up the classic Settlers of Catan, and for the 40th anniversary of D&D, we are going to cover a new(ish) spin on an old concept - the dungeon crawl.

Contributing podcasts will talk about what other classic dungeon delves we'd like to see represented, how it compares to the D&D experience, and where it stands in the pantheon of dungeon crawl games like Descent, Heroquest, Dungeon Run and others. There may even be mention Lords of Waterdeep for no good reason.

What do you like best/find most disappointing about the D&D Adventure System Board Games?

As the podcasts release their shows with the Game of the Month content, I'll update this entry so you can easily find it.

DTN GOTM July 2014: Acquire
While all of the other Game of the Month games have been part of a greater whole, Acquire stands alone as an early example of engaging game play tactical decisions, and making all the players stay in the game until the bitter end.

What is your favorite edition of Acquire? What other games have you played that seem influenced by Acquire?

As the podcasts release their shows with the Game of the Month content, I'll update this entry so you can easily find it.
