OK, not really. On a more serious note this is the promised show where I am joined by Andrew Weakland to discuss his views on Malifaux V2. He is much more positive than Spencer and I are and brings up some excellent points. Did he change my whole stance and am I in love with M2E now? Well, I did use M2E a couple times during the show, so I guess you need to listen and see.
This is another 2 hour rambling conversation with no breaks, so no real good places to note specific content. Eventually we will get back to content marks in the show notes. Hell, eventually we will get back to a regular schedule!
Gamers Lounge is not dead, and were back with a doozy of an episode. Bill returns with Spencer of Cheated Fates fame to talk about the topic everyone seems to have been waiting for, Malifaux v2.0. There is a break in the recording but that really because the length of the show necessitated we take a quick break.
So, strap your selves in and remember to keep your hands and feet inside the cart at all times. Here comes a three hour therapy session where Spencer and Bill discuss their views on Malifaux v2.0.
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.

The M&SU Bar this episode responds to a request for a Colette Tactica. Dan and Bill spend time talking about the different ways they play Colette while Mike talks about facing Colette.

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.
