Look. I can only drink so much.

I call BS!

And Brant, since when is Germany and France EAST of Poland?  ???  :2funny:

The intent was to describe how stuff to the east of France/Germany is relative under-covered in many US games. If I misspoke, it was probably a contract high from Mirth's inebriation

Well, technically it's east of Poland. If you go east for about 22,000 miles or so, you'll get to it. ;D

Sure. Blame me.

It was probably the producer's fault.

As much radio as Brant's worked in, he should know it's always the producer's fault.

You are entirely too kind.  And obviously, someone has paid you off to say that ;)

Good season so far!

And yes, Scythe is crap. I backed it based on hype and "Oh, pretty!" and the game play is just meh. Too much of it makes no narrative sense, either, which is a pet peeve of mine.

Glad I'm not the only one. I saw a few vids of gameplay (which I generally do) and while I thought the minis were just awesome, the gameplay seemed way too fiddly and dull. The guy that played it was REALLY into it, but that wasn't a positive thing.

Skip over World War I???
And BC, I think the old PC Civil War game you were thinking of was No Greater Glory. A brutal, brutal game that I was never able to win.

I listened and enjoyed  :)  I've played 7 wonders on my phone a few times now, still haven't won the AI.... Pffft! I win quite a lot of the battles, but still manage to lose the game  :-" I shall continue until I triumph, mhwahahaha  >:D its a great game to play though, and its cool to be building something ancient, I kinda get a kick outta that!
I remember watching the video for mosebys raiders, thought it looked fun to play, but I also liked the way it looked, it looked convincingly civil war to me.
I think the American revolution is going to be an interesting listen next week  O0 anything on the English civil war would be good too, if you guys ever get around to that subject  :bd:
The flight sim stuff sounded cool, I thought this was a great episode guys  O0

You are entirely too kind.  And obviously, someone has paid you off to say that ;)

Well,  there was a brown paper envelope with a wad of cash slipped under my door, marked "grogcast"  :hide: but seeing as how I genuinely enjoyed the episode, and would have left a comment anyway  :) I can now use the cash to buy y'all a drink  ;)  so get yer funny stories ready  ;D And a designated driver, cos ain't none of us gonna be walking out of that bar sober!  <:-)

^^Focusing too much on military cards and battles is a great way to lose in 7 Wonders. Believe me, I know. I make the same damn mistake every damn time I play the game. Apparently I'm incapable of learning.  :uglystupid2:

That's cool to know Arctic Blast, thanks for the tip  O0 I do keep radiating towards the military cards, thinking that if I Blast the heck out of the opposition I'll break them down, lol.... But apparently thats not the case  :uglystupid2:   I'll take your advice on board and change tactics, and maybe.... Just maybe, I might get a win  :hide:
