Chris: “Lyal, Can I play Batman in your DC game. Batman with a Scottish accent. ‘Ach. Ay’m the heerooo this city deserves, ya wee lass.'”
Lyal: “Wow. I’m not looking forward to that, but sure. Wayne?”
Wayne: “Hmm, maybe Sen … Sensible … Sensual … Sen … tence. Centennial. The Centennial.”
Lyal: “The Sentry. Wrong universe. How about Superman?”
Wayne: “No thanks. I do like Spee … Speeder … Speederma … Spice. Spicer … Spicerman …”
Lyal: “Spider-Man. Wrong universe, again.”
In this episode, we discuss the advantages of playing iconic characters as well as retelling classic or not so classic stories. Also, listen to find out what all the fuss about Sparks Nevada is.
In part 2 of our review of HBO’s Game of Thrones, we continue with our picks for best and worst scenes. We also give our general impressions and predictions, and we share our tips on how to add a little Westeros to your fantasy game.
Despite Richard Madden having a bit of a fan club in Japan, we still don’t mention Robb Stark. (Don’t get your hopes up, Mr. Madden; they’re all dudes.)
Warning: Chris was unavailable for the recording of this episode, so it’s a touch more engaging and entertaining than usual.

It’s our 25th episode, and we celebrate with our most self-indulgent one to date: a two-part review of our current passion, HBO’s Game of Thrones. This makes you wonder what’s in store for episode 50. A look at the mechs of Lyal’s Ghost Bear trinary? Chris’s guide to the peanut butters of the world? Wayne’s glowing review of Warmachine and Hordes? (Oh, wait. We’re doing that last one before episode 50. Spoiler!)
As promised, Waymar Royce was played by Rob Ostlere.
Correction: Peter Dinklage was in The Station Agent, not “The Stationmaster”.
