TPC 133: Why We Hate Burning Wheel

March 27th, 2011 · David · 2 Comments

* Buy Iron Tyrants

* Agricola and the Back to the Future card game mini reviews

* Things we hate about Burning Wheel:

* The Subsystems destroy the main rolling mechanic’s purpose and feel

* Conflict: For a mechanic that generates a narrative, a roll that leads to no results is not fun.

* Instincts try and cover too many broad things

* Die Grubbing creates a weird scenario at the table

* Fight/Conflict and their limitations within themselves

* And of course, every discussion of issues with Burning Wheel has to end appropriately with stories about Jackass

    The Jackass discussion was frickin’ hilarious. I have never seen any of the movies and that confirmed that I never will if I can help it. I almost spit my tea out at the poo volcano.

    Knowing you guys are the podcast all about Burning Wheel alleviates my guilt at letting the BurningCast fall down after only two episodes.
