Vacatiasode with Ken and Rudy

So tonight we completely break format and I invite Portland locals Ken and Rudy (Mistakes Were Made) to come on and do a mailbag tournament wrap up report. It was a blast. Love these guys. That said please be aware that Rudy has a potty mouth and since this is the Vacationasode I am not going through and finding them, only 3 I believe. Also please enjoy this episode in moderation as I will be missing a week as I will be on vacation for the next week.

Alright, so the general topics covered tonight are the tournament the Rudy ran and me and Ken played in, which accounted for 60% of those in attendance. So our first topic of discussion is building a community. We move from there to discussing how many games it takes to master a master. How long you should stay with a master before giving up on him. And then we get into the tournament report covering in depth Ressers (nico of course), Gremlins, and giving some love to the Outcasts. Then more questions, more banter, and plenty of shenanigans.

So in summation there was much fun had, many topics covered, and lots of ribbing and laughs. So laugh along with us as we insult each other and talk about many Malifaux topics. I like to think of this episode as an homage to Malifools, may they rest in peace, well in peace on their seperate shows now, well not peace but talking ways on different shows. Thank you everyone for all your support and for listening, I really appreciate it and I can't express this enough.

Episode 34 - Jack Daw with Arash Afghahi

On this episode we bid adieu to my old PC. It sadly crashed on the day of the recording and so I was forced to scramble and get an old laptop up and going. That said, please bear with any issues that may have cropped up, I did my best to check it all out and I think it recorded everything well. Time will tell.

Right. So I chatted tonight with Arash Afghahi and we chatted about Jack Daw. Arash recently came to Portland and we were able to get a game in and I got to see first hand how Jack Daw plays, and would love to share this knowledge with you guys.

***We chatted about the interaction with Noose and Death By Firing Squad and it doesn't work quite as well as we hoped. It will do a min 5 damage with the bonus damage, but no more than that. The +1 damage is only applied once to the attack action and does not apply again for the trigger. ***

Deployment : Flank

Strategy : Interference

Schemes : Line in the Sand, Bodyguard, Entourage, Protect Territory, Deliver a Message

Episode 33 - Guild Lucius with Kyle Bode

On this episode I chat with Kyle from the podcast Schemes and Stones about Guild Lucius. We discuss the merits of making other people do your work for you. I also sadly bring up a MTG comparison and I apologize for this. Right.
