Gamers-Lounge-logo-LGGamers Lounge Ep 131 – Organizing and Preparing

Episode 131 is here with the traditional Lounge Talk. Bill and Josh gab on about what they’ve been playing lately and generally catch up from the last couple weeks.

Segment one jumps in with a chat about Organizers. We discuss the use of board game organizers, some companies to get those organizers from, and how they compare with Mini-wargaming organizers.

Then, surprising for such a short episode, we have a second segment. Josh and Bill dig into some ideas around how Bill should prep for the Guild Ball world championship. Some of the advice is complete tripe, while others are not too bad at all.

Gamers Lounge Ep 127 – Kickstarter Threeway

Episode 127 is releasing a little late but is chock full of good content! We open the show with a lounge talk featuring Spencer, Bill, and long time friend of the show and one time listener Atlanta Mike. We cover a load of games including a litany of board games Atlanta Mike has been introducing his new crew to. We also get some advice on the “flow of games” to use when building up a non-board-gaming group toward Kingdom Death Monster.

Our main segment for the show is talking about Kickstarter. Spencer is not a fan of kickstarter, Atlanta Mike is a moderate fan but has dived into a couple, and Bill “may have a problem” if you believe the other two. We go through the guys reasons for using kickstarter (or not), experiences on kickstarter (good and bad), and overall thoughts.

We also have questions from the Twitter featuring Dr. Loxley’s speed round. Another challenger showed up by Dr. Loxley still brought the speed round questions for the win!

Then Atlanta Mike delivers a very smooth outro, making our intrepid hosts look bad overall.
