Gamers Lounge

Back into the regular swing of things as it's Tuesday and that's how weeks work. Monday, you're getting your bearings back in line. Tuesday, you get things done. At least, for me, that's how it goes. And, as always, I'm ready for that weekend. To help get there, I listen to some gaming podcasts.

Today on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 61: Stealing Rules; Gamers Lounge Episode 155: Rising Sun; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 67: Gen Con News, Undo and Bunny Kingdom; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 178: Gen Con Live! – With lots of special guests including Stefan Feld!; Lords of the Dungeon 30: What New Dungeons and Dragons Class We’d Create and First Time Game Master Tips; Tabletop Talk Episode 35: Yan Lo (Resurrectionist) Deep Dive with Steve Bynum; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 274: Red Alert Review; and The D6 Generation Pip Episode 25: Marvel Crisis Protocol Early Thoughts.

Tuesday and the work week is fully underway. I'm still on the road to recovery, every day feeling a bit better, but still trying to take it easy, lest I suddenly relapse and get sick again. So, while I try and get the last of this gunk out of my head, lemme also get you some podcasts to listen to so your week can go by quickly.

This week we have: Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 142: sculpting miniatures with Chad Hoverter!; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 115: Rajas of the Ganges; Gamers Lounge Episode 141: What is the Aetherium; Singled Out Episode 59: Talking Hunters With Aaron Wilson; Guild Ball Tonight Episode 75: Not A Kickstarter; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 21: The Last Jedi Spoilercast; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 136: Hunt for the Ring, Heaven & Ale, Muse, Finished!, and Lotus; Cardboard Herald Episode 64: Gabe Barrett of Board Game Design Lab; The Secret Cabal Express Episode 34: Euro Games, Some We Love and Some We’d Love To Play; and News of the North - 2018-01-30.

And we've made it to Tuesday. Congratulations. The work week is well underway. Soon, it will be the weekend once again. To help speed us along, how about some gaming podcasts, eh? Sounds like a plan.

This week we have: Forgot My DiceEpisode 15 (22): Shiny and Kinda Chromed; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 16: The Most Dangerous Game (of Thrones); Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 123: Lignum, Downforce, Indulgence, and The Lost Expedition; The Secret Cabal Episode 139: Nemo’s War, Warhammer Quest Silver Tower and a Short Topic Extravaganza; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 115: Plaid Hat Design With Isaac Vega!; The Cardboard Herald Episode 37: Eric Woods of Hobby Horse Games, designer of Firelight; Ice Cream For Everyone: 2017 Birthday & Game Chef Episode; SAGA THORSDAY Episode 47: Northern Tempest!; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 221: Cigar Box Battle; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 103: Wasteland Express Delivery Service; The Rolistes Episode 22 (Part 2): The Rolistes Go To The UK Games Expo; Singled Out Episode 40: Cinder, Blacksmiths Apprentice, Sneak Peek!; The D6 Generation Episode 217: Getting into Voice Work & Clank Detailed Review; and Gamers Lounge Episode 140: Sofa in the Lounge.

I don't know what it is about Tuesday that I like. Maybe it's just that it's "not Monday." But it feels like the week's good and underway. Like, "that mess yesterday's over with. Bring on the rest of the week!" Maybe that's just me, but I like Tuesdays. Whatever reason it might be, Tuesdays also include getting together podcasts to help you through your work week.

Today we have: Hero Man and Sidekick Boy Issue 6: Intergalactic Planetary; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 15: We Are Groot?; Forgot My Dice Episode 13 (20): Happy Little Bob; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 217: The Ministry of Gentlemanly Warfare; The Secret Cabal Episode 137: Age of Thieves, Moonga Invaders and A Short Topic Extravaganza; Epic Gaming Night Episode 111: Chaos and Creativity; Ice Cream For Everyone Podcast: Scoundrels, Pirates & Game Design with Randy O’Connor; Singled Out Episode 36: Goodbye Thirlwell; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 121: Tabletop Showcase – Interview with Eric Lang, Designer of The Godfather; The Rolistes Episode 22 (Part 1): The Rolistes Go To The UK Games Expo; The Cardboard Herald Episode 33: Squid & Whale, game reviewers; The Brit, The Yank and the Hobby Podcast Episode 24: Tarawa; Saga Thosday Episode 43: Would you like to know more; The Offline Gamer Podcast Episode 23: Entertaining Expo Experiments; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 27: The Great UK Games Expo Caper Part 2; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 101: Origins 2017 and Sara and Lincoln Hot Seat; Gamers Lounge Episode 139: Seafall No Spoilers and Spoilers; and Tales of Malifaux 58.

I know this post is going up at 2pm. But I'm not actually typing it at 2pm. I'm sure you all know that I'm not really frantically typing out posts and making sure to hit the "publish" button right as the hour strikes. No, I get these things put in ahead of time... so I can be frantically typing on some other article I need to write or working on a proofing project or something. :P
And while doing those other things, I'll tend to listen to some gaming podcasts. Like which? Like the following...

Today we have: Masters of the Forge: Altar of War Episode 4: Tidebringer Assault; Nerdherders Episode 16 (106): Arcade (on) Fire!; Mantic Radio Episode 10; After Ullanor Episode 11; It Will Not Die Episode 20: Ulterior Motives in Frostgrave; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 26: The Great UK Games Expo Caper Part 1; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 109: Kickstarters; Gamers Lounge Episode 138: Star Wars Rebellion & Legacy Campaigns; The Rolistes Episode 21: Tu Vuo Fa Il Ruolista (at Stratagemma, Florence); Rolling Dice and Taking Names Episode 120: Lorenzo il Magnifico, Emerson Matsuuchi (Century), Honshu, Element; The Cardboard Herald Episode 31: Jonathan Ying, former FFG in-house designer; The Secret Cabal Episode 136: Railroad Revolution, Railways of the World and a Short Topic Extravaganza; SAGA THORSDAY Episode 41: Irish Battleboard and Tactics Pt 1; Tales of Malifaux 57; Man Battlestations Episode 19: Battle of Midway 75th Anniversary; and Pint 'O Comics: Any Good Game Is Gonna End In A Fist Fight.

But, but but... it's Wednesday!
I know. I know. But this has been a strange week. Got home from the Expo the other day and spent the first part of Monday at the mechanic to get my car checked out. Then got home and found that, due to a crack in my tub underneath my bathmat, water had been leaking into my bedroom closet. Apparently, it's been doing it for a while, since the carpet and several boxes were moldy (I lost a whole box of 3.5 and a couple 4.0 D&D books). Then there was the server migration and... yeah, I am ready for the weekend. So, as I sit, waiting for the repairmen to come over to resurface my bathtub, I'm going to pop on some gaming podcasts. Yes, it's a day late, but better late than never.

Today we have: Meeples & Miniatures Episode 209: Vexillia Card Games; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 24: Dark Souls, Farsight, Petrichor, Ravage and Exit; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 105: Crossfire Road with Emerson; Gamers Lounge Episode 137: A bit of a mystery; Mantic Radio Episode 9; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 118: 2017 Summer Movie Preview; The Cardboard Herald Episode 27: Reiner Knizia, designer of ALL THE GAMES; Lords of the Dungeon 3: On Rails vs Sandbox Campaigns; Singled Out Episode 33: Talking Season 3 Brewers with Sherwin; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 98: Yokohama; Tales of Malifaux 55; and News of the North - 2017-05-16.

I don't know about you, but my Monday went by in a flash. It seemed I'd just clocked in when it was already almost time to go. But having a very busy day will do that. And that means this whole week is going to rush by, since I'm certainly busy. And while I work on these various proofing and writing projects, I've got some gaming podcasts to listen to.

This week we have: Game Classy Episode 136: Look Who’s Back; Plan of ATK! Episode 1; The Secret Cabal Episode 133: 51st State, Mombasa and So Many Favorites; The D6 Generation Episode 211: Guerrilla Miniature Games & Miniature Agnostic Games; The Cardboard Herald Episode 24: Kevin "QXC" Riley, pro-Starcraft player turned game designer; The Rolistes Podcast Episode 20 (Part 2) : Nephilim with Mira, Willem & Rob; Gamers Lounge Episode 136: Drowned Earth; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 102: Planning & Strategy; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 23 part 1: Mars, Tsuro and Planetarium; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 205: The EPIC Show; Exploding Dice Radio Episode 2; Forgot My Dice Episode 9 (16) : Retroactive Spoiler Alert; Nerdherders Episode 104: Adepticon 2017 Recap; Altar of War Episode 3; and News of the North – 2017-04-25.

And we're back in the office after a long weekend. You know, when it comes to long weekends, I prefer having Monday off as opposed to Friday. Reason being is you've got a long weekend and then a short week. Gets you back to the weekend that much quicker. What can also help the week go by quicker is listening to some gaming podcasts while you work.

So, here's some ways to make your week go by faster: The Cardboard Herald Episode 10: John Weddleton of Bosco's, Jack's hometown FLGS; The Rolistes Episode 18 (Part 2) : Dragonmeet, Right Into The Podcast Zone; Guild Ball Tonight Episode 54: The Show Must Go On; Gamers Lounge Episode 135: Star Wars Destiny & Netrunner; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 88: The Avery Attack!; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 17: DOOM, Mech vs. Minions and Timeline; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 191: The Veteran Wargamer + Commands & Colors Review; Forgot My Dice Episode 2 (9) : So Shatnery; Plaid Hat Games Podcast Winter Break - Part 2; Game Classy Episode 131: Hard Sci-Fi; and News of the North – 2017-01-17.

Happy New Year, everyone!
Well, except for those of you who don't celebrate that for a couple months. In that, case, Happy Tuesday!
As it is Tuesday, we've got our usual collection of podcasts for you to check out.

This week we have: Game Classy 130: Happy New Year from The Macho Man; Man Battlestations Episode 14; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 109: Jorvik, Adrenaline, Oracle of Delphi, Clank! and the Sadlers; The Rolistes Episode 17: Xany, the Brexited Scientist Who’ll Be Back With An Army of Robots; Forgot My Dice Episode 1 (8) : A Giant Viking Coolaid Man; The Cardboard Herald Episode 8: Year End Variety Show Spectacular; Gamers Lounge Episode 134: WWX back with Warcradle Studios; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 86: The Future! 2017; and The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 16: The Best Games of 2016 That We Have Played.

I hope everyone's having a great holiday season. It's been a nice one over here. Christmas, itself, was kinda lackluster, but yesterday we smoked a pork shoulder and made a fruitcake. Smoked pork shoulder might not be the most traditional of Christmas meals, but I could certainly stand to make it a tradition.
Anyway, as for today, seeing as it is Tuesday (though I certainly don't think it feels like one), we've got our regular grouping of gaming podcasts for you.

Today we have: Guild Ball Tonight Episode 53: The Penance Beard, The Cardboard Herald Episode 7: Jamey Stegmaier of Stonemaier Games, Cheated Fates Radio: Special Kickstarter Episode, Singled Out Episode 2: A Newbie’s Guide To The Guild Ball Background, Gamers Lounge Episode 133: Dark Souls the Board Game, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 85: Youth Gaming, Meeples & Miniatures Episode 189: Banter from the Bunker: December 2016, and Geeks of the North Episode 36: Christmas wishlist and PVC miniatures, the future?

Since it's after Thanksgiving, we've got Christmas music playing here in the office. But you can only hear Jimmy Durante sing about Frosty so many times. As such, we'll switch out to gaming podcasts so as to not get grandma run over by those reindeer again.

This week we have: Geeks of the North Episode 35: Reapercon and painting on the go with guest host Mocha, Primecast Episode 38, Game Classy 128: Game Classy 1.5, Man Battlestations Podcast Episode 13, News of the North – 2016-12-06, Who Cares Who Wins Episode 21: Its good to try new things, Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 107: The Fog of War interview with Geoff Engelstein and BGG Con Recap, Singled Out Episode 20: Guild Changes In Season 3, The Kick Off Episode 22: A Untimely One, Gamers Lounge Episode 132: Star Wars: Rebellion, Meeples & Miniatures Episode 186: Spartan Games Dystopian World Expansion, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 87: Haspelknecht, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 82: Long Games, TireKicker Podcast Episode 5: Codename: Colossus, and 40K Radio Episode 8.

Well, like yesterday, today can be seen as one of several days. It can be Tuesday, because it's the 2nd day of the work week. It can be Wednesday, as it's the middle of the work week. or it can be Thursday, because it's the penultimate day of the work week. Yes, I do think about this stuff too often. Why do you ask?

Anyway, seeing as the calendar says it's Tuesday, that means we need to get you some podcasts.

Today we have: Game Classy 127: Black Friday Shoppin’, RDTN Episode 106: Great Western Trail, A Feast for Odin, and a conversation with FunAgain about Essen, Guild Ball Tonight Episode 49: Next Stop Steamcon, Gamers Lounge Ep 131: Organizing and Preparing, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 86: Terraforming Mars and Game Therapy, and Meeples & Miniatures Episode 184: Pickett’s Charge.

It's Election Day here in the US.
... ... ...
Ok, so here's some gaming podcasts so you can plug your ears and go, "LALALALAAA! Anything else to listen to!" and hopefully avoid all the nonsense going on with the government. I do hope you go out and vote (I did a week or so ago) and do your part, but geeze... I'm gonna be glad when it's all over.

Today in the Roundup we have: Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 223: Community, Meeples & Miniatures Episode 182: Gripping Beast & Swordpoint, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 85- Mystic Vale and Capstone Games Hot Seat, Guild Ball Tonight Podcast Episode 48: If Pintpot Picked a Pickled Pint, Who Cares Who Wins Podcast Episode 20: Are they a T---, Singled Out Podcast Episode 17: Talking Alchemists with Maria Wieland, The Kick Off Episode 21: A Short One, Gamers Lounge Ep 130: Kingdom Death Monster Review, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 78: Board Gamer Wives, The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 13: AireCon, Mysterium, Two Rooms and a Boom, Mantic Radio Episode 7, Anonymous Tabletop Episode 8: Everyday is Halloween?, and News of the North – 2016-11-08.

Well, we're here on the first day of November. And you know what that means!
"Rent's due!"
Ok, yes, that. But also, it's coming up to my favorite holiday of the year: Thanksgiving. I'm already getting plans together and a menu figured out. Yes, as an overly-enthusiastic amateur cook, I do as much prep work for Thanksgiving as most of my friends do for their Halloween costumes.
But while I flip through towers of cookbooks, I'll also listen to some gaming podcasts, because that's the sort of person I am.

Anyway, this week we have: Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 222: The End of the World, Gamers Lounge Ep 129: Catching Up, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 77: This is us, Nerdherders Episode 9 (99): Electile Dysfunction, It Will Not Die Podcast Episode 18: Grave Digging in Frostgrave, and Geeks of the North Episode 34: Paint Schemes and Background Noises.

With any luck, you made it through Monday unscathed. The work week is fully underway and we're working through the middle portion. I know something that helps me get through is listening to some gaming podcasts.

This week we have: Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 221: Karma, Game Classy 125: 40k End Times, The Rolistes Episode 15 – Across The Pond, A Detroiter In London & A Londoner In DC (With Aimee Carter And Labyrinth Games & Puzzles), Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 84: The Others and Game Design Ideas, Anonymous Tabletop – Episode 7, Guild Ball Tonight Episode 47: There Be Dragons, Gamers Lounge Ep 128 – Moonstone the Game, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 76: Our Top 10 Games!, The Polyhedron Collider Cast AireCon 2016 - Five Games I Hate But Everyone Else Loves, and Meeples & Miniatures Episode 181: Mortem Et Gloriam.

Well, hopefully you had a good 4th of July (whether you celebrated anything or not. I still hope you had a good Monday). For those getting back to the office today, you might need a little something to help you get through it. I suggest gaming podcasts, as it's a bit of the weekend's gaming (or so I feel, anyway) during the mid-week slog.

Today we have: News of the North – 2016-07-05, Man Battlestations Episode 8, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 208: The Hoffcast, Dungeons & Dragons Podcast Peter Lee and Andrew Veen on Tyrants of the Underdark, Game Classy 117: Live Mailbag!, The Hub Systems Podcast Episode 22 - 3D, or not 3D, that is the question!, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 76- The Networks and Origins 2016, Guild Ball Tonight Episode 41: Estimated Prophets, Singled Out Episode 9 – Talking Masons with Nobby, Gamers Lounge Ep 127 – Kickstarter Threeway, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 61 Q&A, The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 6, and The Rolistes Episode 11 – Supaéro Roleplaying Aircraft Engineers (also we checked-out Warcraft).

Well, after the giant speed-bump that is Monday (like having to get your AC repaired at home...), we've made it on to Tuesday. Yay! The week's well under-way and we'll soon be once more getting to the weekend. To help us there, we can fill our days listening to people talk about gaming.

In today's Podcast Roundup we have: Singled Out Podcast Episode 7 – Talking Tournaments with People, The Kick Off – Episode 14 – Where Have All the Forests Gone, Gamers Lounge Ep 126 – Moonstone Firespitter, Ice Cream For Everyone Ep 29: Game Designer Greg Stolze, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 58 Embers of a Forsaken Star With Cody & Ira, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 205: Bloody Munchies, Primecast Episode 33, and News of the North – 2016-06-14.

Monday's done and gone. It's time for Tuesday. With any luck, it'll go by quickly and we can make our way to the weekend that much quicker.

I know something that helps me along is listening to some gaming podcasts while I work. Hopefully it helps you, too.

And to help out even more, I've gathered them all together in one place for you.

Today we have: Gamers Lounge Ep 125- Guild Ball Tournaments, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 56 Game Day, Meeples & Miniatures – Episode 171 – Agincourt @ Royal Armouries, Geeks of the North Episode 29 – Figurines Québec event review and mailbag, News of the North – 2016-05-31, and Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 5: Eclipse, Galaxy Trucker, Blood & Fortune, Aya and Ominoes.

Monday is come and gone (and seemingly rather quickly, too. At least, I thought so). We're now knee-deep into the week, being Tuesday such as it is. With any luck, the week will head by quickly, once more to deposit us in the weekend. Listening to some gaming podcasts should help pass the time.

In today's Roundup we have: Game Classy 114: In Depth review of Warhammer Quest, Primecast Episode 32, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 202 - Ashes Event Recap, Gamers Lounge Ep 124 – We’re back with BloodRAGE!!!!, Blue Peg Pink Peg Episode 73- Two Player Games, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 55 Asymmetrical Games, and News of the North – 2016-05-24.

Monday sort of shot by like a rocket, at least for me. Seemed like I was just waking up when I was heading back to bed. Considering it was a Monday, I'd say that was entirely fine with me. Today's rounding itself off a bit more, which is also fine. And since we're right here in the middle of it, it's time for our regular Podcast Roundup.

Today we have: Epic Game Night Podcast Ep. 25: Combat, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 190: PHG D&D - 1 - The Gloaming, Dungeons & Dragons Podcast: Sword Coast Legends Launch Day, Privateer Press Primecast Episode 24,Tales of Malifaux 16, Geeks of the North Episode 20 – Interview with Elizabeth Beckley, the Miniature Mistress, Gamers Lounge Ep 116 – Rivals Kickstarter, New Salem, Guild Ball, and Through Gamer Goggles Role-Play Ramblings 1: The Problem Player.

It's Tuesday and that once again means a collection of the various podcasts we've come across in the last week.

In this group we have: Game Classy 96: L5R Without Katana Guy, Adeptus Infernus 026, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep. 18 Tail Feathers With Jerry Hawthorne, and Gamers Lounge Ep 114 – Witches and Werewolves and Vampires.

Did Monday just blow by for anyone else? I swear that every time I looked at the clock it'd jumped by an hour. This is not a complaint, mind you, particularly for a Monday. I'm just saying that I'm sitting here in my Tuesday shirt going, "Whoah, it's Tuesday already?"

Seeing as it is Tuesday, it's time for another Podcast Roundup.

In this installment we have: Privateer Press Primecast Episode 22, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 185: Design-O-Rama, Beyond Kalidasia Season 3 Episode 7 - Change of Plans, All Us Geeks Episode 60 Dead Men Tell No Tales, Gamers Lounge Ep 113 – Masons, Engineers, and Hadross, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 16 Development With Josh Lobkowicz, and Geeks of the North Episode 19 – Gaming tables and surfaces.

Back again here on a Tuesday. We're most of the way through (if you're over here on the East Coast such as I am) and hopefully gaining some speed towards the end of the day. To help you get there, how about some podcasts to listen to? Seems like a good idea. Let's get going, then!

This week we have: CoolMini Cast The Others' Blood Rage, Primecast Episode 21, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 184: Gencon 2015 Recap, Game Classy 94: Mail Sack, Beyond Kalidasia Season 3 Episode 6 - Beta Phase Playtesting, and Gamers Lounge ep. 112 – Preview of First Law: Override.

It's Tuesday once again. Hopefully your Monday went by without a hitch and was pretty quick. Mine was. It was all anxiously awaiting the Black Plague launch, and then watching the counter just go up and up and up.

Anyway, as per usual on a Tuesday such as this, we've got our Podcast Roundup.

This week's shows include: CoolMini Cast - Pack-O-Zombies, Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast #29: Nightmares at the Hilton, Game Classy 89: The Age of Game Classy, Geeks of the North Episode 15 – Interview with Brandon Palmer, and Gamers Lounge Ep 109 – Oh Wow is the new Awesome.

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday.
Hello all you beautiful TGN-readers. Welcome to another Tuesday. It seems this week is going by quickly. I almost didn't realize it was Tuesday until I grabbed my Tuesday shirt this morning.
Yes, I have specific shirts for specific days of the week.

But that's beside the point. What we're here for right now is our weekly Podcast Roundup.

We've only got two for you this time around: Adeptus Infernus 022 and Gamers Lounge ep. 108 – We have Guests.
Remember, if you've got a podcast, or know of one you'd like to see on our weekly roundup, be sure to send those in to
