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

Jul 8, 2014

Hello everyone! This week we discuss and review the recent games convention in Dublin, Hobocon 3. We also claim that we're going to review a boardgame, but then we don't. What you gonna do about it, huh? Yeah, that's what I thought; nothin'. Keep walkin', buddy.

Show notes:

  • 0.35: This is all entirely lies. We don't review Resistance Avalon at all. That'll be a future episode!
  • 0.48: My chronovariance strikes before the reviews even begin!
  • 1.21: Edge of Tomorrow is based on All you need is Kill
  • 3.01: Did somebody say Gaelcon? I think somebody said Gaelcon!
  • 8.30: More info on Pathfinder Mythic
  • 9.16: Pathfinder's world of Golarion is nicely compartmentalised like that. I particularly like Revolutionary France Land.
  • 10.44: God, why are we talking about Peig? Everyone hates Peig.
  • 11.40: Ok, full disclosure: some or all of what I said there may be complete rubbish. The film in question was Robert J. Flaherty's Man of Aran and, first of all, it isn't silent. You can watch it with glorious sound here on YouTube. Second, I have NO IDEA where I got the bit about Inuits from. I think I was getting confused with Nanook of the North. Anyway, he misrepresented the islandfolk, that much is true.
  • 14.07: Quote of the Episode: “You are wise like Owl... is that a +3 or a +4?”
  • 17.11: The Quarriors/Marvel things is called Marvel Dice Masters
  • 21.03: Did somebody order a LARGE HAM!?
  • 23.25: That was, indeed, a joke that will not make sense until the next episode drops!
  • 26.29: ...and that's another joke that won't make sense until next week. Also, spoilers.
