Gamers-Lounge-logo-LGGamers Lounge Ep. 96 – Knights of the Rambly Relic

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!!!

Gamers Lounge Mystery Battle Report Contest

Picture 6Gamers Lounge Mystery Battle Report Contest

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 bill@gamerslounge.coda.net 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:
http://gamerslounge.coda.net/contest1/

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.

Gamers Lounge Ep. 90 – Table Flipping Competition

by on May.27, 2014, under Announcements & News, Podcast, The Hobby, Wild West Exodous, Wyrd - Malifaux

Gamers-Lounge-logo-LGGamers Lounge Ep. 90 – Table Flipping Competition

Ok, maybe this episode is not all about competition, but it’s certainly got Dixon in it. Dixon is possibly the most competitive mini-wargamer I know, and a good friend. He joins me after a game of Malifaux Classic to talk about gaming, his world views, and some Malifaux and WWX. The conversation grows very long (nearly 3 hours) and wanders about a bit before we call off. Unfortunately there is no Developers Corner in this episode due to length and due to computer problems in the Gamers Lounge studio.

Content is at:
00:00:15 – Dixon, Malifaux Game, Gaming Philosophy
00:59:06 – WWX Game Day and WWX Game review
02:35:33 – Outro and whats coming up with Gamers Lounge

Delay for next episode

by on Apr.25, 2014, under Announcements & News

Property of TVS, Inc.Hello all.

I wanted to let you know that while there is a delay on the next episode(s) of the Gamers Lounge, we will be returning. I have been involved in a great deal of travel since returning from Adepticon and have been unable to record. I have a series of post-adepticon interviews lined up, along with some fantastic guest hosts for the upcoming episodes. Unfortunately, work travel has made it so I cannot record until I get back in town.

For those who are wondering, I chose the picture appropriately. I will be in Dubai UAE on my next trip. If any listeners are there, message me and we can meet up.

More Gamers Lounge will be coming, stay tuned!!!
