We’re not bad; we’re just recorded that way.
In this installment of Creature Features, we continue to redefine what a “creature” is. We look at the mysterious, sexy and dangerous femme fatale and the lesser known homme letal (probably because we coined it).
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.
In this episode, we look at the miniature wargames Warmachine and Hordes. We discuss our first impressions, for Chris and Yujiro, second impressions, for Lyal and Wayne, and whether we’ll play the games again.
If Privateer Press ever gets tired of the motto “Play Like You’ve Got a Pair”, here are a few suggested alternatives in the same spirit:
- Ladies Need Not Apply
- Men’s Time!
- You’ll Die Alone
- With an Apartment Filled with Miniatures, Dating Is Not Your Priority
- Play Like It’s the 1950s
- You’ll Have a Better Chance Meeting Women at Prison Than Across a Wargaming Table
- All Sausage All the Time
- Girls Have Cooties
- Games Workshop Is for Women (and a lot of Men).

When Hollywood runs out of Saturday morning cartoons to make into movies, we suggest a new source for shaky ideas: pen and paper roleplaying games. (Because, really, The Smurfs?)
In this episode, we discuss the few RPG movies out there, and then we pitch our own ideas for RPG movies.
In this episode, we discuss board games with our special guest, Kristos.
Kristos talks about making his wife cry, which is related to board games. Chris mentions nun rape, which isn’t related to board games. Lyal does sound effects, which, oddly, is related to board games. Wayne threatens to “get started” on Toys ‘R’ Us (again), which, while related to board games, would have been cut (again).
Find out which board game is the best on the market and which one is the worst. Kristos also shares his secret on how to make Monopoly even more boring.
