Shout outs?

So here is Episode 52 with me and Chris Yu (thanks for jumping in as co-pilot for this one Chris!) and this week the conversation just goes all over.

We start by go over the new releases (40K rules and fantasy sculpts) and then hit the Garage ManaGeR section. We get to talking a bit about Invasion Kenosha IV, a favorite tournament of ours. 1 day. 1600 points. 3 rounds and a ton of fun!

Then I bring up crumble and overrun rules again…and we just keep talking about RAW…RAI…and whether crumble without overrun can be “gamed.” Ok, so I edited this part twice. Got it down to 1/2 of the original length of the conversation and cut the worst parts of this, at times, circular argument Chris and I are having. I really hope it’s not too long. I didn’t have the time/desire to go back a third time and try to trim a few more minutes. Who knows? This might be the most interesting part of the show….(right.)

Then we get into our “guest topic!” I asked Chris Yu what he’d like to talk about. He’s the guest host and I’m being polite and let the guest decide what to discuss. So we get into a fun conversation about the different phases in the turn followed by some fun BitS Trivia.

Then I ask a question about Make Way! Finally we discuss a little bit about our thoughts after 2 years of 8th edition and an upcoming 4000 point game!

Hope you enjoy!
