7LandHand: Episode 99 – Mr Jack

‘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.

7LandHand: Episode 92 – Unfair

There’s a clown in the drain, but if you think that’s unfair, you haven’t played Joel Finch’s carnival classic, ‘Unfair.’ Joel pops in to the pod to explain why a Funfair is better without one of its ‘F’s’ (Spoiler Alert: It’s the first one). We listen to Matt’s quiz’s theme tune, talk week in geek, Neets and Twooze, somebody wins Arkham Horror the card game and, of course, we talk you through Good Games Publishing, and CMON’s ‘Unfair.’
