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.
This week, Morrus and Peter take a look at the final adventure from Ghosts of Saltmarsh, The Styes originally published in Dungeon Magazine #121. In the news, we’ve got a peek at Ghosts of Saltmarsh itself, Bethesda allegedly plagiarizes a D&D Adventure League adventure, the Shadowrun Sixth Edition release schedule, and more! Plus our favorite game in all the world and a brand new listener-submitted sketch!

Then the gang jumps into an overview and review of Space Gate Odyssey from Ludonaute and a look back at Lords of Helas from Awaken Realms with the Cabalists thoughts thrown in. Then Tony T joins the party to give us the best damn tabletop gaming new segment of all time while the rest of the founders chatter in the background.

Welcome to Anonymous Tabletop Episode 33.
In this episode some of the crew try to spoil Avengers Endgame without even having seen it yet, Tim alienates yet another game company when he mocks their name, and we learn what happens when Lathan has too much caffeine when he hijacks everyone’s Hobby Update.
Then, we try our hands at an actual review when we look at the new Starfinder Beginner Box from Paizo, break out a game of Utter Nonsense before immediately regretting it, and then spend the rest of the segment profusely apologizing for our horrible attempts at “accents”.
And last but not least, Dave puts his questionable taste buds to the test with some ghost pepper chips, Celebrity Deathmatch decides to go for a spin, and Tim’s Sack looks for a sidekick who’s finally ready for the big time.
The UK Games Expo is just around the corner, the biggest event in the UK tabletop and board gaming calendar. Andy, Jon and Steve are joined by Rory to go through our top picks for the games we want to see at the show.
