Arrrgggghh!!!! Those two wharf rats that go by the names-o-Mark and Jeff be runnin out thar cannons ta take on thar olde rival -ye Black Privateer! It's time for our second annual International Talk Like a Pirate Gameopolis Podcast. Mark and Jeff sail from port to port in search of a number of eclectic gaming related topics. After starting with the Dusty Old Box --a dusty olde treasure chest to be more exact-- we address some Listener Feedback and then launch into our first main topic --our Pirate themed Talk-Like-A-Pirate game: Cheapass Games' Captain Treasure Boots. Jeff gives us a brief over view of Capt Treasure Boots and describes his tricked-out copy featuring little teeny tiny pirate ships purchased from an online jewelry supply store. We'll post pictures of these teeny tiny square-riggers on the Gameopolis Flickr Page. Next, Mark and Jeff set sail in search of games ported from the tabletop to the portable electronic device. We span old and new games that have "crossed over to the other side". Lastly, we flip this topic on its head and discuss games --one in particular-- that has made this trek in the opposite direction: Skirmish Wars Advance Tactics. Jeff talks about his version of SWAT that he will be taking up to the Carnage 2010 Gaming Convention. And so this episode ends with a teaser for Carnage 2010.

  • As I understand it, Cheapass Games is in \"hibernation,\" as James Ernest got a day job. He\'s published a few things through Titanic Games, like the fancified version of Kill Doctor Lucky and the Stonehenge game anthology. Thanks for the Carnage shout-out. Looking forward to seeing the Car Wars setup this year!
