Bill recently joined local podcasters and friends of the show, the Beerthralls for a special joint recording. In this “Strange Brew” episode, Bill and the Thralls talk about the depiction and overall approach to women in miniature gaming. Its an interesting discussion and should be fun to listen to for all involved.
The Beer Thrall’s are a group podcast covering Beer and Warmachine recorded in local drinking establishments (bars) in the Northern VA area. Check them out at:

Episode 96 has arrived after an unexpected month long hiatus! John and Dixon join me in the Gamers Lounge studio for a host of talk, some story time, and then more talk.
We open up with our typical intro, covering what we have done for the past month. This turns into a fairly intense talk about Relic Knights wrapped in a little rambling.
After that John gives a reading of the Winning story from the Mystery Battle Report Contest. Thank you Xander for a great battle report.
Our topic was set to be a short discussion of more Relics Knights, specifically about playing 70 point games vs 50 point games. We dive into that but also give a couple tips on playing relics knights that we have picked up so far.
That brings us to the second story, where Dixon gives a dramatic reading of the runner up battle report. Thank you Paul, I hope Dixon does the story justice.
Then we try to put together a short outro to sign off. This turns into a ramble about Wrath of Kings and a few other games that are incoming in the next couple months.
Hope you all enjoy!!!

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.
