The Veteran Gamer Reenlisted

Drinkn' Beer, Rolln' Dice & Talkn' Shit

Military veterans as well as table-top war gamers who drink beer, talk shit and roll dice.  Talking about Warhammer 40K and other games.

"ATC Recap" Episode 50

ATC recap.  Games and shenanigans.  Thanks for all the listeners who came up to talk to Ray.  Your support helps keeps us motivated to keep doing what we are doing.

What are we drinking?  Heidi bullied Andy into trying a German import.  A “bier from her homeland.”  We drink the Schofferhofer (Chauffeur + ah + Hoff + ah!) Grapefruit Hefeweizen.  Its closer to juice than beer at only 2.5% ABV.  Its tasty for sure but not sure if its beer.

We are having another patron and now Itunes Review contest.  At the end of July we will hold a raffle.  For every dollar that is being pledged per month you will get an entry.  I am also opening this up to Itunes reviews.  Anyone who has given us an Itunes review will also get an additional entry.  Up for grabs is one of our VGRpodcast Tshirts.  You can check them out at https://teespring.com/stores/vgrpodcast

If you think we are wrong or full of shit, tell us about.  You can tell us how full of shit we are by leaving us a review or a comment on itunes, Podbean or our facebook page.  Don’t forget to become a patron of the show at https://patron.podbean.com/vgrpodcast. You can now also leave us a voice mail and we will play it on the air the next time we record. The phone number for the talk shit line is 442-444-0791.  Remember, if you are going to call let us know who you are and where you are calling from.  You don’t have the balls to leave us a shitty message.

"That's how you prepare for the ATC" Episode 49

For two weeks now, we managed to keep Ray on the show. It’s a fucking miracle. In this episode we get caught up on some Maximum Effort and our After-Action Reviews.  Ray tests out his ATC list on Andy and we discuss some tactics that were crucial in our games.  Andy and Ray also discuss ways they have been preparing for the big events they are attending this month.  Ray is headed off to the American Team Championship (ATC) and Andy is headed off to the Bay Area Open (BAO). You can see Ray's ATC list posted at the bottom of the show notes.

What are we drinking? Andy made a safe selection this week and went with the Stone Brewing Tangerine Express IPA.

“This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purée, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine — the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit — we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). We’re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the “I want my beer to taste like fruit juice” crowd. This is Stone. We like our IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids.”

We are having another patron and now Itunes Review contest.  At the end of July we will hold a raffle.  For every dollar that is being pledged per month you will get an entry.  I am also opening this up to Itunes reviews.  Anyone who has given us an Itunes review will also get an additional entry.  Up for grabs is one of our VGRpodcast Tshirts.  You can check them out at https://teespring.com/stores/vgrpodcast

What are we drinking?  We got some beer recommendations from friend of the show Kris Fus so we tried the North Coast Brewing Company Brother Thelonious.

“Like a Belgian "Dark Strong Ale," this beer is rich and robust with an ABV of 9.4%. The package features a label picturing the Jazz master himself, and comes in either a 375 or 750 ml bottle with a traditional cork and wire finish.”

"I done fucked up" Episode 47

Sometimes everything doesn’t go as planned.  Getting a podcast out weekly is often a big task and this week we had some issues.  The audio quality in today’s show is obviously not up to par and I promise to fix it for the next episode.  I talk to my buddy Bam Bam from the Flying Monkeys and we talk about the Con, Space Wolves and some new meta. Hopefully you can listen past the audio difficulties and enjoy the content.

What we are drinking.  We got some beer recommendations from friend of the show Kris Fus so we tried the Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy.

“Our own unique take on Franz Kugler’s original Munich tavern tradition. Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy® is our traditional weiss beer with refreshing natural lemonade flavor that makes it the perfect summer beer.

In 2012, Summer Shandy won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival® in the Fruit Wheat Beer category. Pairs with: BBQ chicken, fruit salads, watermelon and freshly caught, grilled fish.”

“One Giant Orgasmic Event” Episode 46

Danger Zone! Andy invades the league night at At Ease Games in Miramar, California.  Ray is currently on his way to the Flying Monkey Con in Wichita, Kansas so he couldn’t join us this week.  Friend of the show Keith Berry runs a highly successful league and he tells us how he makes it happen. Another friend of the show Paul hops on a mic and tells us about beating Keith, Hayden tries to tell us how he lost to Vito, and James Carmona licks his wounds after getting beat down by Andy.

What we are drinking?  Attached to At Ease Games is At Ease Barrel Harbor.  The tabletop gaming area is behind a bar.  They have a host of great beers on tap, and it was by one get one half off night so Andy was in hog heaven.

"Ask a fat guy whats good to eat" Episode 44

In this episode, Ray gets ears deep into some clowns.  There is some talk of Knights, Orks and space puppies and ray eats a pop tart.  We sprinkle in some After Action Review and Maximum Effort to keep the show on track.

What we are drinking? We complete our tour of the Mike Hess Brewing Company.  Andy Drinks their Double IPA and Ray has their 8 West Orange Honey Wheat.

HABITUS
DOUBLE INDIA PALE ALE
“Habitus, winner of the 2014 World Beer Cup℠ in the Rye category, is a spicy, crisp, and extremely drinkable double IPA. We use loads of Sterling and Chinook hops in the kettle and hopback (and even more during the dry hop) for intense pine aromatics accentuated by a rye and 2-row malt base for a truly great IPA experience.”  17.0° Plato, 100 IBU, 8.0 ABV
 

8 WEST
ORANGE HONEY WHEAT
“Named for the highway to the sun-kissed Pacific shores of San Diego, 8 West is brewed with local orange peel and more than two pounds per barrel of pure California orange-blossom honey, resulting in a smooth, crisp taste that embodies America’s Finest City.” 12.4° Plato, 24 IBU, 6 ABV

“YOUR SIDE CHICK WAS YOUR LEFT HAND” EPISODE 43

BAM BAM!  I called in our good buddy Bam from the Flying Monkys Wargamming Podcast to talk TO on TO with Ray about the CHEATING at the London GT, the events at Midwest Conquest and What’s happening at the Flying Monkey Con in June.

"Just fucking look at the codex" Episode 42

We scooped them all.  Andy and Geoff Robinson sit down to talk about the big controversies at the London GT.  We talk cheating. We talk terrain, and Andy sprinkles in some big boob and phat ass talk.  We got this interview in late so we dropped it into the rest of the show.  If you are just looking for the interview you can fast forward ahead to about 2:08:00.

We invite you to listen to the entire show where we circle back around to Ray’s topics of Necrons, Dark Eldar, Harlequins and a little Deathwatch.

What we are drinking?!?  Once again thanks to our good friend Jesse Rodriguez we drink the Mike Hess SOLIS INDIA PALE ALE.

“Like a new sunset every evening, each batch of Solis (sunset/west coast) is unique—a new and interesting combination of malt and hops. This bone-dry, hop-forward, dynamic San Diego–style IPA allows us to keep our creative juices flowing and your mouth watering. Make sure you ask your server which batch they are serving and try them all! Can drinkers—look on the bottom of your can for a package date and batch number.”  16.5° Plato, 75 IBU, 7.5 ABV

In the episode Ray asks about IPA’s and I didn’t have an answer for him.  Follow the link below to learn more about this fantastic beer selection

“#1 in his own mind and apparently his pants” Episode 41

Through the series of tubes known as the “Information Super Highway”, we could talk with Frankie Giampapa, “G-Pop”, from Frontline Gaming.   Ray and Frankie are a pair of fairy fuckers so we thought it would be good to get them both on Mic to talk about Dark Eldar.  You won’t catch Andy calling them Drukari.

During the recording Andy was drinking the Grapefruit Solis from Mike Hess Brewing in San Diego. 

“Grapefruit Solis kicks it up a notch by taking an awesome San Diego–style IPA and pumping it full of citrusy grapefruit—we're talking real fruit, zest and juice. The hops complement the zestiness, and the subtle malt makes this an award-winning, crisp, and deliciously refreshing India pale ale.” 16.5° Plato, 80 IBU, 7.5 ABV

It has an interesting wide mouthed can that makes the can more of a cup.  It was very tasty and it comes highly recommended.

“Necrons are like sex with a condom.” Episode 40

We finally get around to talking about Ray’s side chick, Necrons.  We also talk some Maximum Effort, After Action Review, a little Deathwatch, and Ray learns about Yohimbe.

What we are drinking? Ray picked up two 6 packs from Strand Brewing Company.  We drank their Atticus IPA:

Atticus India Pale Ale has a full-bodied, toasted caramel base with a hint of bittersweet.  Expertly blended layers of hop aroma, character and flavor display a profoundly disciplined and redefining approach to the West Coast IPA.

7.2% ALC BY VOL

and the 24th St Pale Ale.

Brewed with pale, crystal and German Munich malts and hopped with Summit, Cascade and Amarillo, this pale ale is incredibly well balanced.  It is slightly floral, slightly fruity and ends with a subtle bitter finish.

6.1% ALC BY VOL

"The Brown Magic" Episode 39

Now that the FAQ we have all been remaking and rethinking lists.  Andy took this opportunity to call in some professional help at The Brown Magic.  ITC Champion Nick Nanavati started a 40K coaching business.  Andy took advantage of the list doctor and personal phone call with his newest team members and Adepticon Champion Matt Root.  We recorded the phone conversation with Matt’s permission and we are releasing it for you today.  We follow it up with some discussion of our own.  Andy also gets salty about the ITC Hobby track.

What are we drinking? We drank the King Harbor Brewing Company’s Tiki Hut IPA.

“Tropical awesomeness powered by monster flavor/aroma additions of Citra and Mosaic.  Epic hop profile with a touch more specialty malt than a typical West Coast IPA.  That extra support allows the Citra & Mosaic profiles to shine extra bright…like diamonds made of lupulin and unicorn kisses.  7.5% alc/vol”

It’s very tasty and we both highly recommend.

"Holy FAQ" Episode 38

Holy FAQ! Now that we are on the other side of the Broadside Bash, we can focus on Edition 8.1.5.4.2.  In this 3.5 hour megasode, we discuss the big changes in the FAQ and how those changes impacted our armies for good or for evil.

What we are drinking! Andy got this for the second day of the Broadside Bash and it was refreshing a delicious so we decided to have it again and share it with you.  We drank the Lagunitas Sumpin’ Easy.  It’s a light IPA, almost a sessional, but with more ABV.  Highly, highly recommend for a hot summer day.  Easily one of our favorites.

"Im Drunk! Rays Drunk!" Episode 36

In this alcohol fueled episode we talk about the Broadside Bash specific rules and how you can adjust to the different tournaments that you may attend.  We were quite drunk when we recorded this.  The rest of the recording was not up to even our standards so we decided to cut this episode short.  Look for some shout out at the end of the show.

"Nuts on Your Chin Tau" Episode 35

What?!? More Tau talk?!? Welcome to side B of Tau Talk with Keith.  At this point we are quite drunk but it makes for a great show.  We get Keith’s opinion on the Top 3 Septs, Stratagems and Ray gets a geometry lesson.

We break up the Tau talk in the opening segment by talking with our good friend Hayden about some 40K struggles he has had and how he plans to turn it around for tournament season.  He does go on to beat me that day in an ITC mission using a chess clock with a score of 32-22.
