JohnHQLD Blatherings Episode 5 – Simple Games that the Rules Overcomplicate

Why does it take 2 pages to explain three steps?

So for the fifth episode of JohnHQLD Blatherings, I managed to play a couple of games with a surprising similarity.

Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time has a surprising trait in common with Legacy of Dragonholt – both games are surprisingly simple, and both games rulebooks make them seem a lot more complicated than they should!

In this episode, I summarise an 18-page character creation rulebook for Legacy of Dragonholt to explain to new players how to create a character for the first time.  This is done with a character creation matrix summary tool created by Hawk Strike, and available on Board Game Geek.  If you want to create your own character, grab the matrix here and jump to 7:39 in the Blatherings for instructions you can use on making a new character.

Have a great weekend everyone!


Where is the podcast?

Unfortunately, I have had to take down the entire old podcast hosting service. This means the source files are no longer on the internet.

Thank you for the interest. I have some new podcast ideas that will be coming later in 2021. I hope to see you then!
