Hosts Richard and Aldo released their latest Impressions Vidcast. As in past videos, like Vidcast #36, they showcase games and discuss different aspects of the gaming industry.

This Vidcast starts off with them showcasing games like Rise to Power, a city building card game, Mutant, a role playing game, I, Spy, a WWI spy game, and Shadow Throne, a card drafting game.

After the games were displayed they move on to the main topic of the Vidcast: Finding the Game. They discuss how tough it can be for people to find games in the ever growing sea of games being released. Their discussion concentrates mainly on the little guy trying to get their game noticed above the Fantasy Flight Games products and other big publishers.

Each player represents a member of the secret society trying to hold influence in the kingdom. Players are not concerned with setting the collapsing empire right, but being on the winning side when the battle is over. Whether the king, queen, or princess wears the crown, the goal of the player is to be the one that rules from the shadow throne.

To find out more information on the basics of the game as well as a look at the components, head over to Nothing Sacred Games. Also, make sure to check out the preview video of Shadow Throne from Dan King of the Dice Tower.
