Episode 76 has Joe of Cheated Fates podcast fame joining Bill in a pre-Adepticon episode. We open up with the traditional Gamers Lounge lounge talk and cover a host of items such as recent games we have both been playing.
Following that we dive into a great discussion of our predictions on Adepticon this year, and what we expect to see at the Adepticon Masters event. After much love fest chatter between Bill and Joe, Joe takes over the topic and steers us onto a discussion of the US Malifaux competitive scene. As usual, this goes sideways because it is the Gamers Lounge.
The promised Yan Lo and Izamu discussion actually transferred onto Cheated Fates episode 12, which should also be out before Adepticon! Joe and Bill convened over there to have that discussion and to cover a lot of other items such as Negative Play Experience’s and the balance vs cost of models. Check it out at http://cheatedfatesradio.podbean.com/, it will probably beat this episode to the air!!!
Lastly we have an Outro, where Bill offers vindication and an apology for maligning a local Malifaux player.

Episode 72 is what you get when Dan is in charge of the show. We open with a very Malifaux centric Lounge Talk, discussing Bill’s trip to NC and then Dan and Mike’s experience in the Attrition Tournament. We also talk a little about some of the new Gaining Grounds strategies. Following that we talk with Justin Gibbs (Lalochezia) of Wyrd fame about EBO and Chronicles #4 releasing. After diving into that discussion we sidetrack onto Privateer Press and the announcement of the new Warmachine Faction. We discuss some of out thoughts before driving on into the topic of the episode. the topic was about Book 3, but ends up wandering as the Gamers Lounge is want to do. After we bring that to a conclusion we dive right into our Outro.

Episode 70 has arrived and its on time! This episode starts out with a nice long Lounge Talk as we get caught up from our break over Christmas and the New Year. We cover games and trips and other fun for nearly an hour. We continue on to award the prize(s) for the contest we ran, reading the winning character concept and then award the prizes. Following that we jump into Mini-Topics! During the Mini-topics segment we talk about the Through the Breach Kickstarter, the Battlefoam Breach Bag, Vassal, Our 2012 best gaming experience, and the Vassal Podcast Challenge. This is a true Gamers Lounge style topic, lack of editing and all. Our main topic for the episode is advice for moving from a beginner to a competitive Malifaux player. Then we come to the Outro and the episode ends. The outro is a little bit of a mess, but what do you expect from the Gamers Lounge?
