Hosts: Dave, Rob, Scott, Todd
First off, if you are a gamer in Germany or know any gamers in Germany, let us know because Rob is moving to the Frankfurt area and wants to get his German game on!
Second, we’re trying to get some good crosstalk going on the episodes. We’d like to push the idea of getting conversation going. As such, we encourage you to do one or more of the following things if you’re not already:
1) Comment on the episodes here on the website (we do respond!).
2) Head over to our Facebook page and comment there.
3) Head over to the Spooky Outhouse Forum (it’s a little quiet, but we’d love to get it going again).
4) Or, if you are on there, find up on Google+ and get in the Jank Cast circle we’re doing, or just get in on the discussions we’re having on there.
Without further ado, Show Notes!
(Note: We have some technical difficulties at the very beginning of the episode, but
we fix them, so that static you hear doesn’t last long!)
Rob’s Parents had a Shaggin’ Wagon.
Being the kid who’s family has the thing.
Todd doesn’t move for a day.
Rob maps sand on an island.
Boy Scouts = Child Labor.
Dave gets deep about tradition.
What did we Play?
Scott- Malifaux, Zombie Cinema
Rob- Zombie Cinema, Mouse Guard
Dave- Is in Ikea Town and his gaming isn’t what he wants it to be
Todd- Mouse Guard, Apocalypse World
34:00- Main Topic: What are we excited about in gaming right now?
34:15- Todd is excited about playing to find out what happens. Because he doesn’t know. This is one of the joys of being a GM, we agree. Does this require a change in the way man of us think of the GM in different ways?
40:00- Scott is excited about Space Marine because it looks so cool. We talk about game art and how it gets you psyched for playing the game.
45:30- Rob is excited about giving DeGenesis a try, maybe even in Germany?
50:00- We’re adults, we don’t have time to read 400 page games anymore.
52:00- Dave is excited about playing via Google hangouts on Google+. He played Dungeon World on one and it worked pretty well. We’re all kind of excited about technology being integrated with game.
57:00- This lets you game with people who you don’t live by, which is definitely exciting.
59:40- Listen to the podcast How Did This Get Made even though their skyping is terrible.
1:00:01- We are living in Remember Tomorrow!
1:00:03- Rob is excited about playing Don’t Rest Your Head, and making the most of what’s going on right now.
1:06:00- Scott is excited about the Warmachine steampunk roleplaying game coming out next year at Gencon.
Dave- Why do the consumer gods hate me? Exhibit A: trail mix.
Rob- My friend, the asshole (not Timo): a very un-Canadian rant.
Scott- If you’re running a demo, you need to know how to teach a game.
Todd- Rant of happy! Lots of gaming stuff to be interested in! For example: Jeepform! Yay!
Dave gives us a long but very interesting explanation to us about the jeep-esque game A Flower for Mara. Todd explains that not everything about jeepform appeals to him, but it’s at least some new stuff folks are doing.
Scott talks about minis more. Cause he’s a grognard.
Easter Egg: Celine Dion.
