Hexes & Bows Reviews: Dungeon Dressing Dice

March 6, 2018

It's been a while since we had the pleasure of talking about a fantastic Kickstarter, but wait no longer!  Dungeon Dressing Dice is Hexes & Bows' latest review and boy was it fun to demo!

Gnome plays single player on this episode and shares his thoughts and experience with Incognito Solutions Inc.'s tabletop accessory: Dungeon Dressing Dice.

Now, let's first just start off with the fact that dice are fun to collect, so if you're just looking to add a unique set of dice to your already multiplying collection, this one's a bit of a no-brainer to invest in!

However, if you want something that is not only durable, functional, AND fun, definitely look into picking up a set of Dungeon Dressing Dice.  Listen to the episode for the complete review!

Dungeon Dressing Dice has 12 days left on Kickstarter and is already funded!  Check them out here and follow on twitter!

Gnome also takes a moment to make an announcement regarding Hexes & Bows new project: Hexes & Bows Actual Play Podcast!  The characters are cast and the stage is set!  H&B will be playing a homebrew D&D 5e game with a great cast of characters and a brand new world!

Thank you so much for listening! Don't forget to subscribe on iTunes, Podbean, or other podcast apps so you don't miss out on an episode!

Hexes & Bows S2E1: New Year, New Campaign!

January 21, 2018

With new dice, new projects, and new cast members, the Hexes & Bows Podcast is ready to surprise attack 2018!

We're beyond thrilled to be recording and sharing our geeky content with you and cannot thank you enough for your continued support. We sincerely hope the winter holiday season kept you in good spirits and, perhaps, introduced you to new games! We've got lots of updates to share in this episode including some details regarding our actual play podcast, a new podcast release schedule, and a brand new cast member!

After the announcements you'll find an excellent discussion about the impact of playing board games as a child may have impacted our lives as adults, sharing the love of tabletop gaming by introducing the hobby to family, how gamers can be involved with local communities and promote gaming in a positive light, and of course, Overwatch. Because... Overwatch (GO DYNASTY!).

We end the episode with two questions for you, dearest adventurer:

  1. How do you think gaming (tabletop) has influenced your life, especially if you were introduced to the hobby at an early age?
  2. Do you run/host/create tabletop gaming events for your community (after school programs, nursing homes, charity...)? If so, share with us the details!

Thank you so much for helping us make Hexes & Bows in 2017. Your support, kindness, and love of gaming continue to motivate us in improving the show for you. We can't wait to share all of our new projects with you and we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy creating them!
