This episode ended up going much longer than expected by both parties on the recording. What started as a conversation regarding “Why Not Wild West Exodus” quickly moved to a conversation about communities and changing community views. Chandler is a community leader who is the guy who ends up bringing new games to his play group. We talk about the challenges introducing new games into a group who has become entrenched with a specific game system.
Overall, I really think this is a great conversation for some insight into trying to lead your group to new games.

This is the episode where the great white whale of gaming kickstarters finally arrives, and we talk about it. That’s right, Relic Knights is in the house!
John Kickstarter Relic Knights, and I did not. John get’s me into playing the game and get’s me partially hooked. I have picked up Doctrine and we discuss that. In addition we try to give a beginners overview of the game and how it plays.
Expect more Relic Knights content in the future!

John has returned to the Gamers Lounge and episode 92 brings you the begining piece of our marathon recording session. In this episode Bill and John take a long, meandering hour to go over a lot of things that have been happening lately. It’s been a while since I got to just chat on the podcast about going’s on and we have a lot of fun with it.
Following the intro we dive into some of the challenges we are starting to face with Wild West Exodus. We discuss some of the limits we are starting to face and wonder (asking for feedback) if it’s because we are “playing wrong” or if it’s just the limits to the game.
Then there is the Outro where Bill is back solo and talks about some of the upcoming events and episodes.

I occasionally carry a camera in my gaming bag with the intention of taking pictures to record games for battle reports. I was browsing through that camera today and came across some pictures from a battle I took at some point in the past. I cannot remember everything that happened during the battle, but the pictures looked like fun. As such, I thought there would be a fun contest involved here.
Here is the deal. I have posted the 7 pictures from the Wild West Exodus battle report below, in the order they were taken. They map out events in a game. I am asking you, the listener, to write up a narrative battle report using these pictures in the order they come in. I will post the stories here and on the Wild West Exodus boards for public voting. The author of the favorite story will have that story read on a future Gamers Lounge recording in addition to receiving a $20 WWX gift certificate.
Please email entries to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Mystery Battle Report”. Make sure to annotate within the story where each of the 7 pictures should go in the narrative.
The pictures can be found at:
Contest will run from July 1, 2014 through Midnight US EST July 31, 2014. Voting will be posted to the WWX forums for a week starting August 1st. I will announce the winner in the first Gamers Lounge show following August 9th, 2014.
This episode has Bill all discombobulated and un-prepared. Michael was the guest I was expecting, but not the topic I thought he wanted to discuss. That said, Michael and I have a fantastic conversation about WWX, Books, Movies, and general Geekery.
It’s a lighter episode, but has some WWX coverage as well.
