Gaz and Baz have spent decades talking about games, ever since University, which was far too long ago for their liking.

All RPG problems were solved in whiskey-fueled late night sessions, with the disappointing realization they couldn’t remember any of it the following day being the only fly in the ointment.

Now older, wiser and more experienced, the plucky duo have decided to commit their enthralling discussion to this new fangled podcast technology, in the vain hopes of capturing something useful or interesting. It should be a conversation starter if nothing else.

Getting them to start talking was never the problem. Making them stop however…

    Influential Games

    Episode 140 - Influential Games (aka Chained Lightning)







    There are many games that influence the way we play. Some have become almost lifelong companions; some deliver a great idea to be stolen and used elsewhere. Baz and Gaz got through some of the influential games that shaped their gaming and talk about others that perhaps defined parts of the roleplaying zeitgeist. Settle in for a classic episode discussing a good old fashioned RPG muse. Maybe pour yourself an Old Fashioned to go with it?

    90s Magazines

    Episode 139 - 90s Magazines(aka Fool's Gold)







    Good friend of the show Dirk the Dice off of The Grognard Files is a guest this week, to talk to the lads about gaming in the 90s; a period when he was in the "deep freeze" and away from roleplaying games. RPG magazines from that storied decade are all he has to go on as evidence of gaming back then, and so Dirk presents our hosts with assumptions to be debunked, or otherwise.











    If you want to know more about the Grognard Files you can find out on the website here.
