Gamers Lounge 109 is here with guests and lots of rambling! We open the show with a quick introduction before friend of the show Spencer joins us. Spencer and Bill ramble through a long discussion on a variety of topics. This includes having a primary game vs not, blood bowl, Warmachine competitiveness, and Guild Ball.
Following that the Family Gaming Segment returns with a host of games. We still talk primarily Zombicide but now we add in Machi Koro and Star Wars Armada. Somewhere along the way Bill’s oldest daughter wanders in and we have some minor family gaming drama before returning to regularly scheduled Zombicide discussion.

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:
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.
