Discussing tabletop and related gaming and the Irish gaming scene so you don't have to

Jun 10, 2015

This week's hosts: Liam, Graham and Oisin

Though the terrifying case of the Giant Rat of Sumatra is sadly not included, the head scratching cases of Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective provide plenty to talk about for the intrepid crime solvers of the Adventuring Party!

 

  • 0.35: Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/2511/sherlock-holmes-consulting-detective
  • 1.04: To be honest, my deep-seated need to be a lackey was the reason I got into gaming in the first place.
  • 3.10: I don't think I really need to provide you with a link to Shut Up & Sit Down. If you're agog with interest, just google it. Or google “standard reference pear”.
  • 12.14: And when confronted with the answer written in the book, the investigation took a startling leap forward!
  • 13.40: From the way Liam said “dropped out” there, I'm just assuming there were inverted commas around it. Oral punctuation marks are a fine art, and should be protected. Especially if you're Victor Borge: https://youtu.be/Qf_TDuhk3No
  • 14.29: Quote of the Episode: “But you get to sit there being smug at people for an entire hour; is that not the best thing ever?”
  • 17.17: Bejewelling is still legal, fortunately. I'm sure we could sort something out.
  • 19.31: Such a game as Oisin describes exists! It is called GUMSHOE! Rejoice, all the girls and boys! http://www.pelgranepress.com/site/?page_id=672
  • 24.18: Oisin earns 3 points for a completely unexpected Feist reference.
  • 26.08: Aw yeah! The Mummy's Curse? I'm sold! That's some high quality case-naming right there.
  • 31.07: Ooh, ooh, a 10-gallon hat! Like Boss Hog!
