GrogCast Season 4, Episode IIIIIII

20 January 2017 ~

The lost/last episode of Season 4 is finally here – just in time for Season 5 to start recording–

Chris joins us to talk about Civilization games, and Chris joins us to talk about card games, and they’re not the same Chris!  We also cover Star Wars toys and the X-Wing minis game, the General Quarters naval warfare games, and some gaming with the families.  Not the groggiest of episodes, but if you’ve been jonesin’ for a GrogCast, we’re here to give you a fresh hit.

GrogCast Season 4, Episode IIIIII

tanksgivingheader

22 November 2016 ~

Professional Wargamer (no, really, he gets paid to play wargames!) and GrogHeads Central Command crew member James Sterrett swings in for a visit and discusses Star Wars Rebellion, asymmetric warfare, Castle Ravenloft – Darths & Droids comparisons, Civilization 5 expansion packs, Napoleonic games, and unnecessary international government travel.  There’s also no truth to the rumor that he was Patient Zero of the latest Grog Flu epidemic, although there was a hint of yellow fever (so what is that – ‘beige fever’?).  There’s not a ton of pure tank content in here, but if we’d been able to get it edited in time, it would’ve been released in September.

GrogCast Season 4, Episode IIIII

2 November 2016 ~

RPG Legend Bruce Heard joins us for a fascinating look at his roundabout journey from young game translator through running an entire product line for TSR to his current self-publishing projects with the World of Calidar.  As usual, we cover our current game-playing fun, and we also pester Bruce for a few war stories from the glory days of Mystara.  Oh, and Chris might have rolled his tongue back up.  Maybe.

Special thanks to Bruce for taking time out his schedule for us, and check out his World of Calidar stuff, with the second wave of Kickstarter projects shipping now!

GrogCast Season 4, Episode IIII

27 October 2016 ~

The Yoda of GrogHeads, Jim Zabek, returns to the GrogCast for a chat about what we played over the summer and what’s on the table today…  We talk about Scythe, Liberty or Death, summer game groups, mobile digital gaming, and more.  And sorry about the tapping; the NSA had their interns eavesdropping instead of the usual seasoned professionals.

Note that we recorded this one a while back, so some of the “what did you play this week” sounds kind of out-of-order from previously-released podcasts from this season.

Our first guests of Season 4 are Matthew Kirschenbaum and Pat Harrigan, editors of the fabulous tome Zones of Control, which we previously reviewed.  They give us some insight on how the book came about, the process of pulling it all together, and some surprises from the contributors.

GrogCast Origins Previews: Command Post Wargaming

19 May 2016 ~

We’re continuing our Origins 2016 previews for the Central Command this week with the guys that run the Command Post Wargaming events.  Want to know how these work?  Think the “staff” just makes the commander his coffee?  We’ll teach you the planning process and let you tackle the mission as it unfolds in (almost) real time.

podcast SPLASH-Origins

Our Origins previews are short, sweet, and focused on the show.  It’s a Gus-fun-sized package of goodness as we ramp up for the show.  Stay tuned for more previews from the rest of our friends.

As promised in The GrogCast, here’s the iTunes link.

Don’t forget to go rate The GrogCast on iTunes or any other podcast feed/search system you use.  Thanks!
