Tuesday. It's Tuesday. When I woke up this morning, I went, "Oh, Thursday. Nice!" And then I was like, "Oh, wait... no... wrong T-day of the week..." Ah well. So, the week's not exactly zipping along as I prefer, but I can help it some by listening to some gaming podcasts. This week on the dial we have:
Voice performer & audiobook narrator Ray Greenley joins us this episode to discuss playing board games virtually and then we dive into his latest work with Kobold Press and their guides for 5e players including:

In this episode we take a look at all the reveals from the Warhammer Weekend preview and what it may mean next for 40K. We also cover all the other previews and find out just how many things Amy is preordering and what’s up with Blood Bowl players!
Episode 242 starts with an announcement regarding Don playing a game of Europe Divided with the designer of A Gest of Robin Hood and Red Flag over Paris, Fred Serval. Then Don and Jamie jump into a feature review of Martin Wallace's Struggle of Empires and the gang gets into a Short Topic Extravaganza including discussion about too many Kicsktarters, how hard should a co-op game be and do the BGG rankings really reflect how good games are.
This is where I tell you about what is in the show. But because the show is so long again, I am going to save you some time and keep this short. First, we talk about some games and all were winners. Zapotec was great. Our banter included self-driving lawnmowers, how can Sand be in the Toy Hall of Fame, and upcoming taste tests. Best part was Marty and Vanessa talking about roller skating and how not to do a crossover. Also their review of Savannah Park.
There you go, now you don’t have to listen to us for two hours.
It’s a veritable cornucopia of tabletop gaming chat! Andy’s spending goes unchecked as he buys a brand-new bike and about 14 Kickstarters while Sid gets a bit hot and bothered with Ginny Di’s new calendar. We then have a deep delve into the latest games to hit our table, Destinies from Lucky Duck, Tawantinsuyu from Board & Dice and Coriolis from Free League.
