Wrath of Kings
Gamers Lounge Ep. 119 is a very long episode so strap in and get ready. Spencer and Bill open up with a Lounge Talk touching on Spencer’s recent blood bowl game and a bit of Guild Ball. Bill briefly mentions a recent tournament he TO’d, and we discuss a big demo day Spencer had in his area.
Following the lounge talk we dive straight into the first topic of the episode. Ben from the Guild Ball Ranking website Black Orifice joins us to respond to some of our comments in ep. 118. Following that we dive into a long conversation about how the rankings site works and the thoughts behind Ben’s choices for the site.
After talking about Rankings for an hour Spencer takes a break and Bill is joined by Dave Lee to resume the As Yet Unnamed Wrath of King’s segment. Dave and Bill dive into Shael Han and talk about the army.
Spencer returns for the new Twitter Questions segment where we have a speed round from Dr. Loxley, a Guild Ball question from Maurice, and several non-Malifaux questions from Cheated Fates Joe.
The boys round out the show with an outro discussing where they’ll be in the next 2 months.

Gamers Lounge 115 is chock full of eclectic goodness. We open the show with Bill’s obligatory opening. Oh, and he provides plugs for podcasts including his own… shameless.
Following the opening we jump right into a segment with Mrs. Gamers Lounge and Bill talking about Rise of the Kage. This is a first look at the new Ninja stealth board game recently arrived from GCT Studios.
The middle of the show has a guest spot by the boys over at Smashed Shins podcast. The Smashed Shins boys give a characterful play-by-play of a recent Guild Ball game. This is so much fun to listen to I had to ask them to share it with the Gamers Lounge listener!
Lastly we return with another of the Wrath of Kings segments. This time we’re reviewing the communist pig faction Tekness and how they play. John gives great insight while Bill and Matt take notes on how to beat them.

Following that we have a little call to Guild Ball Tonight with a GBT style After Actions Report (AAR). Bill and Greg talk about a recent game where Bill’s Masons faced off against Greg’s Engineers. We discuss some of the intricacies of character plays and how the Engineer’s uses them to play the game differently from other teams.
The second and last segment of the show is the next in the new Wrath of Kings show segment. This time we have already introduced ourselves so we dive into our first army review. We talk about Hadross, the dreaded fishmen of Arkania. We review their characters, the army play style, strengths, weaknesses, and general army review.

Gamers Lounge Episode 111 has a couple firsts involved in it. This is the first time Mrs. Gamers Lounge has shown up on the show in 2 segments. Also, we’re launching a new segment, so the first time we’ll be diving into the regular Wrath of Kings segment with introductions.
After Bill provides a bit of an intro we dive into the first segment. Mrs. Gamers Lounge and I sit down and talk about the newly arrived kickstarter game, Exploding Kittens. It’s a pretty short review but I think we cover the game well.
Segment two has a new crew of guest hosts joining Bill for the launch of the new Wrath of King’s segment. This segment is as yet unnamed, but will be a regularly occurring segment covering Wrath of Kings tactics and game play. We start in this episode by introducing ourselves and what armies we play for WOK.
And the last segment of the show has Bill and Mrs. GL return to talk about another game. This time they have a much longer game session discussion and full review of Super Dungeon Explore – Arcade. This is the cooperative version of SDE where the game has it’s own AI in place of a console.
