Lyal knew a guy who gave his girlfriend a picture of himself for Christmas. In that spirit, here’s our gift to you: an episode of us talking about what we want for Christmas. We discuss what games we’d like to receive, what games we’d like to see made and what games we’d like to actually play next. So, listen to find out what RPGs and board games you need to get this Christmas.
Merry Christmas! (We had to talk Chris out of dropping the t.)
Correction: The new expansion for the Privateer Press miniatures game Hordes is “Hordes: Domination“, not Dominion as incorrectly stated by Wayne. Let’s hope Santa puts the correct thing under his tree anyway.
In this episode, we talk about the games we played at the most recent JIGG (Japan’s International Gamers Guild) Game Day and gamer etiquette.
Here’s a list of the rules of etiquette that didn’t make the episode:
Don’t eat over the communal pizza.
Trash talking is fine.
Never ever allow do-overs, except under the following 83 circumstances…
Yujiro and Kristos guest host. Actually, Wayne and Lyal just do Kristos impressions.
Idle Red H.A.N.D.S. (Hero Action and Network Defense Squad) is the code name for Japan’s daring, highly trained special mission force. Its purpose: to defend gamer freedom against the Active Blue T.O.E.s (Terrorist Organization of Evil), a ruthless terrorist organization of, uh, evil determined to rule the Internet.
In this episode, the Idle Red H.A.N.D.S. discuss the cartoons they watched as kids and which elements they could use in their games. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
Correction: The name of the Visionary Darkling Lord discussed is Cravex, not Craven. Who knew that a cartoon could be so subtle?
Good evening, hepcats, greasers and squares. We got the skinny on playing hardboiled in La La Land in the early ’60s, a land of queens, dreams and inbetweens. Dig Lyal laying on some heavy RPG experiments. Dig Wayne going talk, talk, talk (over Lyal). Dig Chris offering some funky advice.
So, tune in and dig the baaaad vibe we lay down. It’ll be a gas. From the podcast that’s on the record, off the QT and never very hush-hush.
Correction: Elfenland is actually like the travelling salesman problem, not “dilemma”.
Special Note 1: The Ryan and Matt mentioned in the podcast are the forum’s very own Ryan and Matt.
Special Note 2: It’s not mentioned in the episode, but we used the World of Darkness system.
