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.

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 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.

In the search for an excellent episode 99 to complete the run up to 100 episodes I had a fantastic idea. Why not go back to one of the hallmarks of the Gamers Lounge and grab game creators to discuss their game. I am joined by Mat Hart, creator of Guild Ball in this episode. Mat and I talk for 2 full hours about Guild Ball, how the kickstarter is progressing, how the teams play, and how the rules have shaped up.

Mat also shared a hot preview of the Union team lineup on the Gamers Lounge website. Go check it out!!!

Guild Ball can be found @ http://store.guildball.com/
The preview can be found at the Gamers Lounge Ep. 99 post on the website.
