The domino and the butterfly effects describe pretty much the same idea, but we’ve never heard of a game called QueenButterfly…so, in this episode, we review Blue Orange Games’ Queendomino. Don’t stop Bruno now, he’s having such a good time. Matt ruins that, however, with one of his quizzes, there’s Jaime’s Top Ten, Neets and Twooze, and a winner of last month’s give-away, ‘Lovecraft Letter.’
It’s MTG A-Z with Aaron and Zoe. Zoe (from Good Games Cannington) joins us to answer some listener questions, play all the quizzes, and give her take on travelling overseas to play Magic. A lucky listener wins TWO Ixalan boosters. A seven-year-old girl drops by to describe magic cards, and Zoe and Aaron give you their picks for Ixalan hot garbage.
These are the GGMC (Good Games Magic Championship) 2017 finalist interviews. David and Aaron have a chat with each of the finalists after the dust settles on what was a super-exciting series of matches.
Thank you to Manny Lagmay, Wan Chin Lee, Jex Calder, Denby Adams, Marcus Peck, and Chris Sha for joining us in the ‘sound-proof’ booth.
…and a shout out to Amelia Wales who judged the entire event.
You have a cousin in Egypt, and they’re in trouble…sound like Love Letter to you? Of course, it does. Lovecraft Letter reinvents Seiji Kanai’s card deduction classic, and with a new spin, changes the dynamics of this short-game favourite forever. Matt gives us a love letter inspired quiz, and there’s Jaime’s Top Ten. Plus, discount passwords, and the winner of Unearth.
Straight outta Vraska’s Contempt and into your ears, it’s Ixalan Fo’ Real. How has Ixalan twisted standard into a thorny cutlass? We answer your questions on such matters before looking at the main decks in standard. There’s the quiz stuff, the busta stuff, the hot garbage stuff, and everything GGMC as we reveal the state and US champions for the Good Games Magic Championships.
See you in PAX folks…
It’s all above ground like a post-hibernation rodent, but this is no groundhog day. Unearth is here, brand new and sparkling, straight from Brotherwise, to 7LH, to your ears. We have a new segment: Jaime’s Top Ten (with an incredible theme tune from Danul), Matt’s quiz, a winner for our Tokaido give-away, and Matt thinks out loud…several times.
Here’s a podcast to give all other podcasts +1/+1, it’s the pre-pre-release Ixalan spoiler show! It sounds like poetry read by a warrior named, Huatli. We do listener questions and give-away our last ‘Hour of Devastation’ booster. Aaron and Kai lock Ceratop horns in MTG Card Quiz and Flavour Text. As with all good Magic the Gathering shows, we have 40 seconds of 40K with 40 Kai. Big news in Neets and Twooze…and Hot garbage and Premonitions are a bust, for different reasons.
Do you like going for long walks in the hope of bathing with monkeys? Do you like walking into restaurants and yelling,’FUGU!!!’? Tokaido is here to fill these needs, and more. However, don’t get excited about the prospect of something…this zen game is about the prospect of nothing. Learnt something? …you may be doing it wrong. It’s the show about nothing: Tokaido.
It’s our 100th show!! We’re down a Kai, but up a Keayn with his resourceful return. Dr HOU fans rejoice! We respond to your questions, get a whole bunch of retro boosters busted, Travis is back from WotC R&D with a card (see below) that missed the HOU cut, MTG card quiz (it’s a real quiz), Flavour Text, talk GoT for way too long, Neets and Twooze…boom, boom, boom…even an easter egg.
Do rot do rot doooooooo!!!
‘Mr Jack’ with Mr Cathala. Bruno Cathala is back to tell us about London in 1888 and the terror walking the streets known as, ‘Jack the Ripper.’
To this day the murderer is unknown, and here’s a game that puts you in the role of either the investigator or the fleeing Jack.
Then a ‘Matt’s Quiz’ theme tune happens, Neets and Twooze with the announcement of last month’s game winner, plus a whole bunch of geeky opinions.
