Monday has come and gone. Tuesday is here for a while longer. The Work Week does its thing as we make our way back to the weekend, where I’ll be celebrating Free RPG Day by playing RPGs and streaming it for everyone to point and laugh at. 😛
But before I get to my streaming, it’s time to listen in on some gaming podcasts.
This week on the dial we’ve got: Guilds of the North Episode 6: East National Championship; Man Battlestations Podcast Episode 31; Exploding Dice Radio Episode 10; 40K Radio Episode 29; Breathing Flames Episode 3: Bias-Hazard; News of the North – 2018-06-12; Epic Gaming Night Episode 157: board game popularity; Drive Thru FM Episode 15: Boardgame Community (NSFW); Blight and Boon Episode 9: Grimshalla and Galana Mashup; Cardboard Herald Episode 83: Scott Almes is Rescued From Neverland; The Secret Cabal Episode 160: Big Trouble in Little China, Watson and Holmes and Our Favorite Gaming Memories; The Offline Gamer Episode 30: UKGE 2018!; Chance of Gaming Episode 108; and The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 43: The Great UK Game Expo Caper 2018.
The sixth episode of Guilds of the North, our Guild Ball spin-off, is now available! In this show, we talk about the recent new releases, the East National Championship, and we interview Sam Doiron, winner of said event. So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!
Episode 31 of the MBS podcast has arrived! This episode, Greg and Andy discuss the pros and cons of “defined” movement systems (i.e. using a grid of hexes or other shapes) in naval games. Later, they talk about some of the amazing miniatures that are being produced that are not tied to a specific game or rules system.
For Episode 10 of the EDR Podcast, Andy is joined by a very special guest; Phil Johnson, of Firebase Delta and old-school 40k Radio fame! Andy and Phil dig into a breakdown and discussion of the recent Warcradle Q&A that featured lots of new information for Dystopian Wars, Armored Clash, Uncharted Seas, and Firestorm Armada. Later, they discuss some of the things they would like to see in the next edition of Firestorm Armada, which is likely due to hit sometime in late 2019 or early 2020.
In this Episode we discuss the announcements from Warhammer Fest and then take a look at both the Harlequins and Imperial Knights Codex. We also learn how Ashley really feels about a certain Black Library Novel along with all the usual hobby discussion.
There’s nothing more glamorous than being a board game reviewer. Throngs of adoring fans, mountains of games, and piles of publisher cash. Join us as we discuss how we balance the rock and roll lifestyle with the desire of providing honest feedback of the games we cover.
The June 12th, 2018 edition of News of the North is now live. Here’s our weekly selection of interesting news items in the miniature wargaming world.
We talk about BrokenToad, Guild Ball, Spira mirabilis, RobotRocket Miniatures, Abyssoul, Artel “W” miniatures, Puppets War, Punga Miniatures, Happy Games Factory, Willy Miniatures and Lovecraft.
Roy and Rob talk about board games that are popular and maybe why some games don’t get the hype.

So Tony T is marauding around Europe so we have a guest sitting in, Aaron from Lords of the Dungeon! First Chris and Jamie review the Dungeons and Dragons themed movie Mazes and Monsters starring Tom Hanks. Then after the Founders run down all the games they’ve been playing they talk a little but about Origins and give some details about their event. Then the gang takes a look at the new Big Trouble in Little China board game and give you their review and a look back at Watson and Holmes one year later. Steve takes the reigns for the news segment today and we crack wise while learning about what’s going on in the gaming world. Then finally the guys talk about some of their favorite memories of gaming past.
It’s that time of the year again! We chat about our experiences at UKGE 2018, along with games we played and some interviews from designers and publishers.
We talk about News, Vassal, Gamersgate and Command Colors just to name a few things.
We have returned from three days at the biggest tabletop gaming convention in the UK. The UK Games Expo was yet again another amazing and exciting event so we talk about all the board games, card games, tabletop roleplaying games and miniatures games we saw that got us all excited.
We would like to thank everyone who made it an awesome convention.
