Intro Banter - This is the (mostly) unscripted intro to the show! We catch up, play games, talk about games that perhaps did not make the main show, and just gab, Welcome!
First Impressions – We talk about the first time with a title, from the acquisition to the first look, to the first play and deliver thoughts in writing and on the show. This Episode:
On the table - We will examine what the game is like when played, we need to personify that experience, this should be impersonal experience wise, but cover angles and what to expect from the title, cover components, setting, rules and the overall atmosphere.
Rules- This covers everything in the Rule book from setup to actually communicating what you are doing when you play.
Components- Every piece in the box, this can also cover table presence, what does it look like when it is all laid out.
Play- How does the game play, is it smooth, what are the fun interactions, what does it encourage.
Theme- What does the title do with its theme, how does it use it to further the narrative of the game and provide atmosphere for those playing.
Lighthouse Spotlight - This segment is filled with “hidden” Gems we believe are due more time in the spotlight than they get! Pay attention to genre and theme here and if it's up your alley, go and get it, it's a safe bet!
