Wyrd – Malifaux
Episode 124 was slow in coming but now it’s here! I’m not going to write much here because I want to get the show onto the feed. We open with an extended Lounge Talk covering the past 4 weeks. Lot’s of fun stuff in there.
Moving on, Spencer played a couple board games and we review one of them. We review Blood Rage and talk about our thoughts.
Twitter questions… an always fun segment.
Then Outro with Bill trying to decide if he’s going to Troll the internet.
00:00:14 – Lounge Talk
01:16:53 – Blood Rage Review
01:45:31 – Twitter Questions & Loxleys Speed Round
02:15:02 – Outro
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.
00:15:25 – Intro
00:05:29 – Chandler on Why Not in communities
02:03.25 – Outro
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
OK, not really. On a more serious note this is the promised show where I am joined by Andrew Weakland to discuss his views on Malifaux V2. He is much more positive than Spencer and I are and brings up some excellent points. Did he change my whole stance and am I in love with M2E now? Well, I did use M2E a couple times during the show, so I guess you need to listen and see.
This is another 2 hour rambling conversation with no breaks, so no real good places to note specific content. Eventually we will get back to content marks in the show notes. Hell, eventually we will get back to a regular schedule!
Gamers Lounge is not dead, and were back with a doozy of an episode. Bill returns with Spencer of Cheated Fates fame to talk about the topic everyone seems to have been waiting for, Malifaux v2.0. There is a break in the recording but that really because the length of the show necessitated we take a quick break.
So, strap your selves in and remember to keep your hands and feet inside the cart at all times. Here comes a three hour therapy session where Spencer and Bill discuss their views on Malifaux v2.0.
