Episode 342 – Tell me more, tell me more

In which Mike and Matt do something that you would have thought that they would know better than to do and lay out what the plans they have for the summer. Its like mid year resolutions. Which is frankly a very stupid thing to do. Its especially stupid as if you asked them today what they said they were going to do when they recorded this then I’m pretty sure that they won’t be able to remember and will make some sort of excuse so that they can go back and listen.

Lets face it, I'm a complete geek, wargaming, xbox games and playing with lasers. I tried 3D printing but it made my head hurt. Flighty in the extreme, hobby projects last a couple of days before moving onto the next one

Episode 341 – Its life Jim, but not as we know it.

In which Mike and Matt talk about Bonescon and specifically the plans for the Fools Daily Butterfly House. Before we get there though we wander through SAGA, a trip to Warhammer World and a brief discussion about monochrome painting techniques. Polyglots, that what we are. Must admit I am very excited about the Butterfly House and hopefully if you are a regular listener to this show you are as well. Fun and Frolics will abound as a shining beacon of hope in the mass of competative gaming. Or it will be an utter disaster and Matt and I will be sitting twiddling our thumbs for 3 days. Either way its going to be exciting.

Episode 340 – Other terrain companies are available

In which Mike and Matt are joined by James Hewitt  ex GW designer to talk about his new venture Needy Cat Games.

We cover his gaming background, his thoughts on where the industry is at the moment and what its like leaving the safety blanket that working for GW gets you.

Obviously us being us the conversation then goes down several different paths, often at the same time as we discover what he’s playing at the moment, gaming tropes / mechanics he likes, things like that.

Oh and we also find out his views on Dark Knight (wrong) and GoTG2 (right)

As an aside huge congratulations to Gav on his Gemmel, very well deserved.

Episode 339 – Muh Bucky

Spiderman-720x1066.jpg

In which Mike and Matt are joined by the extremely knowledgeable professional movie critic Dom (@dumb_luck89) to talk Spiderman: Homecoming. Unsurprisingly spoilers galore. Seriously, we give away all the big ones so don’t listen until you have seen the movie. On the way we touch upon the various Marvel Netflix shows, meander around Legion (if you haven’t seen it you should, its fantastic), prove Matt to be the absolute idiot we know he is and generally have a good movie chat for an hour. Indeed Dom was so much fun we are going to get him on again for movie and gaming chat. Its nice to be able to talk to someone intelligent now and again. Been a bit movie heavy last couple of episodes but gaming will resume next time around.

Episode 338 – Wittertainment its not

In which Mike and Matt are joined by the delightful Bunty (@Elessarion30) and talk movies. Mostly they focus on the excellent Wonder Woman which Matt hasn’t seen, then talk Baby Driver and look forward to Homecoming. Thats pretty much it but it goes on for like 90 minutes. They love the sound of their own voices, have you noticed that?

Episode 337 – The God that Failed

In which Mike and Matt talk about Daffcon and why the 2017 event was cancelled. This is sad as we hate letting folks down and we did. However we do end on a positive note as we talk about our hopes and dreams for the resurrected multi system Smogcon, though time will tell on that one.

Episode 336 – I Ascend

In which Mike and Matt talk many things, like the heat properties of glass, Test Match Special and of probably most interest to you, the gentle listener, campaigns. Mainly because Matt has had a very good idea about a town called Ascension that we are going to use to tie multiple different games systems together. meanwhile Mike has been writing a more traditional branching campaign for Dragon Rampant and putting together some rules for units to gain (and lose) bonuses depending on how well they do in the campaign. Frankly they are so enthused for the hobby that its almost nausea inducing, which means a huge hobby crash is probably just around the corner. Get em while it lasts kids.

Episode 335 – I always feel like somebodies watching me

In which Mike and Matt are joined by the crew from Paranoid Miniatures to talk Mythos. Mike and Matt recently had a game (Matt won!!!!!) so we talk about what we found, how we felt the rules worked, miniatures, pretty much everything. What we discovered is that Mike knows nothing about rules writing, that there are ambitious plans for the game (several new factions and additional models for existing ones) as well as narrative campaigns that sound a lot of fun. RIP Brian Cant.
