Meeples & Miniatures


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. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 279: Saga: Age of Magic; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 29: Star Wars Feels; and Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 157: Abomination: Heir of Frankenstein.

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. I mean, it's not Monday, so it's not all bad, but we're still just right at the beginning of the week. But, it's also the start of October. So we've got that going for us. October and November are my two favorite months, so I'm all for cooler temperatures (though here in Atlanta, "High 90, Low 70" just seems to be what we're going to have until January...) and my two favorite holidays. But before we can get to those, we just need to finish out the week. Let's help things along with our weekly podcasts.

On the dial we have: Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 181: Marvel Champions, Pax Pamir, Eternal, Sorcerer, War Chest Expansion; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 70: Dungeons & Dragons and tabletop RPGs; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 67: Vast Kaviya for D&D 5e with Mike Myler; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 37: Quit Clownin’ Around!; Tabletop Talk Episode 41: Charles Hoffman (Arcanist) Deep Dive with Matt Lewin; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 27:7Supersystem; The Offline Gamer Episode 42: Indoor Tranquility; The Secret Cabal Express Epsidoe 52: Aeronautica Imperialis Miniatures Games; and The D6 Generation Pip Episode 28: Achievements in Gaming Sept 2019.

Tuesday. We've made it solidly into the work week and it's time to really get things going. The reacclamation of Monday is over. Tuesday's here and we need to get down to business. ... Or we can put on some gaming podcasts and pretend like we're working...

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. 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. 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.

Tuesday. I don't know about you, but my Monday went by super-fast. Mostly because it was crazy busy. As will today be. And likely tomorrow, too. So, while I busily type my fingertips off, I'll be listening to some gaming podcasts along with it.

Welcome to Tuesday.

My week's shaping up to be another rough one, so we'll see how it goes. Hopefully it can go by quickly enough. I know listening to some gaming podcasts will help with that (in-between some Meshuggah and Infant Annihilator, that is).

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.

It's Tuesday. But it's also kinda like Wednesday, because it's the middle of the work week. But it's also kinda like Thursday, because it's the 2nd-to-last day of the work week. But since I'm typing up a Podcast Radio post, that means it's Tuesday. Let's get to it.
