Episode 123 is here very shortly following our last episode. We knew you, our listener, felt cheated with no Twitter Questions on the last episode. Just for you we start this episode out with Twitter questions and Loxleys Speed Round!

Sepi from Fight in a Box games about End of the Line and their other games. Joe from Osprey Games, the creator of Frostgrave. Then we finish the interviews with Sam from Games and Gears, talking about brushes, Dark Deeds, and general behind-the-curtain game manufacturing.

Episode 120 has arrived and we’re joined by Mario, famous for Mats by Mars. Spencer, Bill, and Mario start out with a quick introduction then an overview of recent games played.
Our primary segment this episode is a discussion of Adepticon. We cover a host of topics such as travel to Adepticon and what our schedules look like. We dip a bit into why we each go to conventions and how those reasons have changed over the years. Spencer reveals a big change for his Adepticon 2016, and then gushes over a little bit of a fanboi moment.
After a nice and friendly Adepticon chat Spencer urges Bill to have a bit of a rant on the Guild Ball changes to Gutter. It wanders a bit, it’s not overly coherent, but it’s a rant.
Twitter questions brings up the end of the show, rolling directly into the outro.

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.
