Review Roundup

Hey there, everyone. I hope you’re all having a great Saturday. I just got back from the grocery store (I’m typing this up a decent amount earlier than it is set to go live) so I can get ready to have some company over for a low-key Halloween party. I’m making cookies, chocolate-coated peanut butter balls, and gumbo. Should be a good time. I’m sure a lot of you have somewhat similar plans.

As for the moment, though, before I dive into a bit of last-minute cleaning and then work on cooking, let’s get you those gaming reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

This week we have: Bankers and Robbers, Dungeon Saga, Harry Potter Deck-Building Game, Conquest Games’ Medieval Archers, Mysterium, Aeon’s End, Love Letter: Premium Edition, Mortem Et Gloriam, The Networks, Eclipse: Shadow of the Rift, Tumult Royale, Necronomicards, Cthulhu Crusades, and Loony Quest.

Podcast Roundup

So yeah, while Monday follows the weekend, so does Tuesday follow Monday and we work our way fully into the week. Eventually we’ll swing back around and get to the weekend. Personally, I’m looking to try and do some cooking this weekend. I’ve not really cooked anything major in a while. I need to change that. Also, Guild Ball on Friday, hopefully. So there’s that.

But before we can get there, we need to finish up what we’ve got going on here. In this case, it’s our Podcast Roundup.

Today we have: Guild Ball Tonight Episode 43: The Long Con, Singled Out Podcast Episode 12 – Designing Veterans with Jamie Perkins, Meeples & Miniatures – Episode 176 – Honours of War, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 67 Board Game Blitz – Part 1, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 67 Board Game Blitz – Part 2, The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 9: Gen Con 2016, Game Classy 120: Gen Con ’16 Part 1, News of the North – 2016-08-23, Lost Hemisphere Radio ep114: The Gen Con Interviews, Tales of Malifaux 37, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 213 Gen Con Recap 2016, and Primecast Episode 35.

Podcast Roundup

Tuesday, Tuesday. (ba-laa, ba-la-la-laaa… Hmm… doesn’t have quite the same ring to it)
Well, one day down. Four to go until the weekend. We should be able to make it there pretty easily, I’d say.

At the moment, our attention turns to talk radio. Specifically, the talk radio of podcasts. There’s a trio of them we’ve collected over the past week and present them to you now for your listening pleasure.

In this batch we have: Privateer Press Primecast Episode 20, Lost Hemisphere Radio ep111, and Geeks of the North Episode 16 – Exciting games ahead.

Podcast Roundup

Welcome once again to Tuesday, dear TGN readers. Hopefully you had a good day yesterday. We had a nice BBQ here at the office. There were hamburgers and hot dogs and chicken legs and pork ribs… Yeah, it was tasty. Leftovers, too. So that’ll be lunch today.

But enough of what I’m stuffing my face with. Let’s focus on what you should be stuffing your ears with (that… seemed a lot better of a transition in my head…). We’ve got our regular Podcast Roundup.

In this installment we have: Lost Hemisphere Radio ep110, CoolMini Cast #2, Game Classy 88: Dust Tales WOOHOO!!!, Adeptus Infernus 023, World’s End Radio Episode #85 – Watch The World Burn, and Screaming Heretic Episode 83 – Flula.

After a brief delay that may or may not be related to one of our hosts trying to develop lazer eye beams, Lost Hemisphere Radio returns! This time around we’re dragging through the Kriels and talking Trollbloods. Our guest shares his thoughts on Exigence releases, it’s pretty much agreed that Trollkin Scouts are excellent value for their points, and Gdaybloke won’t bloody well shut up about Gunnbjorn.

With the latest Lock & Load convention wrapped up, it’s only appropriate that we corral our Lostie On-Site Natalie and pick her brains about her convention experiences, tease her about her pin lanyard, and otherwise boggle at she sheer amount of saliva she’s able to produce when staring at Absylonia’s new model. Add to the mix a recurring Lost guest who, like Natalie, is devoted to Everblight and all his frosty blightiness, and you end up an episode of Lost Hemisphere Radio that can justify an alliterative episode title.

Curious as to how many times Gdaybloke can mix up Issyria and Elara’s names? You’ll have to listen to find out! Thankfully Northblade’s here to keep things on track, and just to add some genuine in-game know-how, we dragged along the guy who won Adepticon’s Masters tournament and Iron Gauntlet qualifier as a guest.

Privateer Press is known for its award-winning tabletop miniatures games and roleplaying supplements, but sometimes we’re feeling a little whimsical. For those times, for when we want to goof around with our pals or be a little silly with our young ones, Privateer maintains the Bodgers. Infernal Contraption, Heap, Scrappers and Bodgermania have made us familiar with the scrappy little team of Gobber McGuyvers and their wacky inventive nature.
