In Episode 121 Spencer and Bill dive into Guild Ball Tactics as the discussion. Bill returns from a weekend playing at the Bourbon Trail Open Guild Ball tournament and the boys kick things off with a lengthy lounge talk. Bill touches on the tournament, Spencer touches on his painting progress for Adepticon, and they both get caught up on the recent goings on. Also a great story about Mat Hart of Guild Ball fame.

Following the Lounge Talk the boys dive into a Guild Ball tactics discussion. As with everything on the Gamers Lounge, the topic wanders a bit and ends up revolving around sportsmanship, tournament etiquette, and general good play habits.

The show closes up with the now regular Twitter questions and Loxleys Speed round. Then the boys do the outro and out!

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.

Episode 107 is here after a bit of a break. We open up with John and Ben joining Bill for a good old fasion Lounge Talk. This is right back to the rambling original form of Lounge Talks from the past.

Following the long Lounge Talk we jump into a topic that’s been on Bill’s mind for a bit. We talk about board games that include miniatures and what part they play in our gaming hobbies.

I hope you all enjoy the episode!
