Podcast 143 – Skorne Errata!

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s finally happened… not only did the new Skorne errata hit… but it looks good.

Before we get to the audio, just want to share an awesome image a couple listeners (hi MIke!) in Omaha sent us.team-kassem-image

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get happy little shivers from that. Thanks guys!
Anyway, on to the Skorne errata!

Podcast 133 – Skorne, Low Sodium Megasode!

Sure, there’s a lot of salt about Skorne these days. But there’s also a lot of good. And Nick, Kassem, and I sit down for 5 hours to talk about all the good in Skorne.

Yes, there is at least 5 hours worth of good stuff in Skorne. Come learn all about it!

Podcast 125 – Windsor Steamroller Tournament!

Did you guys know that we’re theoretically a Battle Report podcast?! I know, I know… I scarcely believe it myself. And yet, what do we have here?

An entire tournament worth of batreps! And a chance for Combo Smite (Nick, Kassem, Darrell, and I) to prove that we’re not total and complete scrubs?

A big thank you to RJ (from Team Canada) for inviting us down, to Nick and Paul from “CG Realms” in Windsor for hosting the event, and to all the players in the Windsor meta who gave us such a warm welcome and a day full of great gaming!

Podcast 029 – Khador vs Skorne, Vlad2 vs Mordikaar: And that’s Why You Always leave a Note… that says “Remember to use Deathclock…”

Good. God. Or as Marc might say, “Oh my Gods.” He’s a little indecisive when it comes to choosing a deity so to be safe he gives them all props. Does this list of Gods include the Flying Spaghetti Monster? We may never know and I’ll forget to ask him but I think it probably does.
(Marc: Yes. Yes it does. And Thor, Om, Crom, Cthulu, and Urd, for those curious, as well as numerous others)

As I was about to say, this game went on for way too long and really cut into my sleep schedule. We had gotten into the good habit of only playing timed games to avoid situations exactly like this one and then at some point someone decided, “Hey, I’ve gotten pretty quick at playing my turns so I don’t need to use a timer!” We’re all captains of our own destinies, I get that and what can we learn about life, nay, ourselves if we don’t make mistakes? Though if the mistake you make is walking through a fireworks warehouse with a lit cigarette you won’t reap the benefits of the lesson; the people who clean up your pieces will.

So reap what we sowed, dear readers/listeners. Whether you’re playing Deathclock or timed turns, always use a timer lest you end up like us: tired.

(Marc: A quick warning about this week’s podcast: it weighs in around an hour and a half after some pretty substantial editing. But it’s not short! On the plus side, you get to hear Aaron disobey a direct order not to urinate, listen to Nick while belligerent and drunk, and find out which one of us claims to be the same as Picasso!)
