The Veteran Gamer Reenlisted

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

"Its not the same without Ray" Episode 56

Technology giveth and technology taketh away.  The original recording was lost to the warp due to a corrupted SD card so Andy created a show out of nothing.  In this episode Rays joins Team Zero Comp and Andy takes over as Captain of Darkside Wargamers and Altered State Wargaming.  Andy discusses what it like to form a new gaming team and the rules he has created to keep the team active. Andy also talks post Nova Meta and changes he and Ray expect and want to see in the FAQ coming later this month.  Andy also does some After Action review and Maximum Effort.

What are we drinking? Tennessee Andy helped us find some beers again this week. Ray was drinking the Serpent Bite from Orpheus Brewing.

“Just as the Serpent Bite and loss of Eurydice was the catalyst for Orpheus’s journey, our love for hops and sour beers was the catalyst for Orpheus Brewing. Serpent Bite is a dry-hopped, sour saison, with a tart bite, and notes of orange and tropical fruit.” Composition Hops: Mandarina Bavaria, Pekko Grain: two row barley, white wheat Fermentation: House Lactobacillus Mother, Saison yeast ABV: 6%

Andy was drinking the Forty-Four from Back Abbey Brewing.

“A robust porter liberally infused with an exclusive blend of Hawaiian and Kenyan coffee beans from our friends at Frothy Monkey. The cold-brewed coffee enhances the natural roast aroma, and pulls deep notes of chocolate and caramel. Pairs well with cozy movie nights; smoked or barbecued meats and cheesecake. 4.8% ABV 25 IBUs”

If you think we are wrong or full of shit, tell us about it.  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 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.
