Geeks of the North


Hello Tuesday. Welcome to the work week proper. I actually had yesterday off, thanks to Veteran's Day. Still got some posts in, but now we've got a whole slate for you.

Tuesday. We're into the work-week proper, having made it through Monday. If we've made it this far, certainly we can continue on. And continue on we shal, all the way back to the weekend. I know to help things along for me, I listen to some gaming podcasts. So, let's get to it.

Tuesday. I'm feeling more energetic than yesterday. That's a rather low bar, I understand, but still. I wonder if it's because I had a little bit of the world's hottest hot sauce that doesn't use extracts... It could be, I suppose. If I could survive that, I can survive anything (hot-sauce related, anyway). In the meantime, let's get to some podcasts that hopefully won't set fire to your mouth.

This week on the dial we have: Geeks of the North Episode 86: Skirmish games; The Rolistes Episode 36: Infrequently Asked Questions with Hanno from FAQcrew; 40K Radio Episode 45: Stay Frost(y); Tabletop Talk Episode 45: Malifaux Path to Podium: 2019 English GT; Tabletop Talk Bonus Episode: NC Grand Tournament and USFT Update; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 183: Tapestry, Bloom Town, War of the Worlds, Dizzle, Gates of Delirium, Annihilageddon; The Secret Cabal Express 53: H.P.

Tuesday. We're into the work week proper. It's lining up to be a busy week. So, distractions are going to be the enemy. And I know that if I want to work without distractions, some gaming podcasts can help. So, let's get to it.

Tuesday. The work week's properly underway. I hope you weren't stumbling at the starting line and we can get through this relatively unscathed (not that the week's shaping up to be anything scary, but you never know). I've got D&D coming up again this week. We didn't have session 2 weeks ago because of Dragon*Con. So, I'm more than ready to get a game session in.

However, in the meantime, to speed the week along, let's listen to some gaming podcasts.

Tuesday. A nice day off and we're into the week. What'd you do with your day off (assuming you had one?). I finally did make that cake. So, that was fun. Now to get through a relatively quick week and get back to the weekend. To help speed things along, let's listen in on some gaming podcasts.

Tuesday. Still so far from the weekend. That's one thing about having a long weekend followed by a regular week. It feels even longer. I've mentioned before that I'll take a Monday off over a Friday off. Same goes for having a Monday-Tuesday off over a Thursday-Friday. But hey, it's still days off and days at work.

Tuesday. We're into the week, proper. It's been a busy start, and it's going to be a busy continuation. That's fine, since next week will be a short one.

Tuesday. We've made it through the start of the week that is Monday and we're into the week proper. I'm ready for the weekend, which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. I'm always ready for the weekend. But, I mean... who isn't? Honestly? We all are. So, let's make the work week go by quickly with some gaming podcasts to listen to while we work.

Tuesday. Though, a conversation with coworkers yesterday showed that we all agreed that yesterday felt like a Tuesday instead of a Monday. But such was not the case. And as it is actually Tuesday, that means making the week go by quickly with some gaming podcasts.

This week on the dial we have: Game Classy Episode 188: Elves Flipping Houses RPG; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 50: Special Celebration Episode with Shane Stacks and Darryl Mott!; Geeks of the North Episode 75: Are you [battle] ready?; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 268: Everything you ever wanted to know about six, but were too afraid to ask, Part I; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 19: DYEN - Miniature Games are Calling; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 20: Tips for Gaming while Camping; Tabletop Talk Episode 23: Kaeris (Arcanists) Deep Dive with James Doxey; and The Offline Gamer Episode 39: UKGE 2019 Preview.

I love Mondays off. You get yourself a long weekend and then a short week. So, it's a bit of a faster journey to the weekend again. I gotta admit, I did as little as possible yesterday except watch stand up comedy, and it was glorious. I hope you had a great weekend as well, no matter what you got up to. But, seeing as it's already Tuesday, that means we can hopefully speed up time a little more with some gaming podcasts to listen to.

Tuesday. We've made it into the work week proper. And I got my next subscription box from Heatonist, so I had a new hot sauce to try on my wings last night, and it was super-tasty. I realize that doesn't have anything really specific to do with gaming. I just like hot sauce.

Something that does have to do specifically with gaming is giving you some gaming podcasts to listen to while we all make our way to the weekend.

Today on the dial we have: Morrus Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 48: Exploring Saltmarsh Finale: The Styes; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 267: It’s all Greek to me, Part Omega; Geeks of the North Episode 73: Contrast-ing opinions; The Secret Cabal Episode 183: Space Gate Odyssey, Lords of Helas and a Short Topic Extravaganza; Chance of Gaming Episode 31; 40K Radio Episode 40: Adepticon Wrap Up; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 33: Accents and Apologies; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 62: UK Games Expo 2019 Preview; and Game Classy Episode 187: No, WE did it.

It's Tuesday, and as far as everyone in Atlanta is concerned, the world is coming to an end. They're predicting some snow, so, of course, everyone is loosing their stinkin' minds. Looking at the forecast, I'm not at all concerned with it. I'm more concerned with people here acting a fool because of what they think might happen, instead of what's actually happening. But anyway, we still have our podcasts to post up, whether you're at home having your bread-milk sandwiches or actually know what to do when driving out there.

This week on the dial we have: Game Classy 180: Return of Warmachine?!; Geeks of the North Episode 61: Hobbysode; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 55: Between Two Dice Hospitals of Mad Detective Ludwig; Drive Thru FM Episode 22: Top 15 Anticipated Games for 2019; Chance of Gaming Episode 123; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 30: Lizards and Lookbacks; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 187: What we want in a Kickstarter; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Bonus Episode: Designer Deep Dive- Comanauts with Jerry Hawthorne; and The Secret Cabal Express Episode 45: Movies and TV Shows We’re Excited About.

I love having Mondays off a lot more than Fridays off. You might be thinking "a 3-day weekend is a 3-day weekend. What's the difference?" The difference is that, with Monday off, when you get back to work, you're already closer to the next weekend. *taps side of forehead* Always thinkin'.

Something that'll also help the week go by is listening to some gaming podcasts.

This week on the dial we have: Geeks of the North Episode 60: What colour was that?; The Secret Cabal Episode 175: Nemesis, The Expanse and Our Hopes and Predictions for 2019; 40K Radio Episode 35: Vigilus Open Day; The Scholarly Warrior Episode 6; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 259: Crusade & Mega-gaming; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 139: The Quacks of Quedlinburg; and Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 162: Too Many Bones-Undertow, Master of Wills, Kitchen Rush, GoT Expansion, Quiver.
