The Adventuring Party
Discussing table-top and related gaming and the Irish gaming scene so you don't have to.
 

Hosts: Liam, Graham and Icecream

This week, our hosts get down dirty with the dirtiest and downest... that didn't work as well as I'd hoped. Let's just move past it. The Adventuring Party discusses the dark side of gaming this week, as we mull over the topic of cheating in games, and how to best deal with it.

Notes:

  • 0.40: Our new set-up
  • 0.45: You know they're laughing AT you, right?
  • 1.07: A peck is one quarter of a bushel, as it turns out.
  • 4.07: That is OUTRAGEOUS behavior and I would never condone it. Well… I'd never solicit it. I'd never ACTIVELY solicit it. I'd certainly turn it down if it wasn't a pint of NICE beer. Probably.
  • 10.46: Admit it, Liam, you just hate to see anyone else succeed. Bitterness is your draught of choice, and your favorite bar is Schadenfreude.
  • 14.45: That's what SHE said!
  • 32.40: Love you guys!
  • 33.55: I don't believe that I rag on Eoin at all during the episodes we recorded during this session. I regret that. So I'll rag on him here! Hey, Eoin! You're a jerk!
  • 36.10: That's two blankety blanks in one episode, Liam. You're on probation, buddy, this is a family-friendly show.
