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.

Enjoy

Gamers Lounge 113 opens with Bill chatting a bit to you, the listener, about his “working vacation”, gaming in other areas of the US, and recent games he’s played.

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 ep. 111 – It’s a Palindrome

Gamers-Lounge-logo-LG Gamers Lounge ep. 111 – It’s a Palindrome

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.

Episode 106 is a bit shorter this week as the crew was not able to get together to record. I do have a segment where Bill and Dixon discuss one of thier first Wrath of King’s games and some questions that came up during the game.

I hope you all enjoy the shorter episode!
