Lots of people died this year, so we have a sad about them. (Note: We recorded this before John Glenn and Alan Thicke died. We probably would have mentioned them, too.)

We argue about sci-fi tropes, which some people don’t like and other people think are the greatest things. It is very confusing. And pedantic.

We discuss that ol’ venerable game institution, the tiny-model count wargame. What happened to the experience and improvement systems from Necromunda and Mordheim? What is the ideal model count for these sorts of things? How is Dale’s answer to everything “fleet games”?

We talk about the One Roll Engine from Greg Stolze and friends. That also means we talk about all the various settings available for it and pick our favorite. And then we die to a horrific head wound.

We finish up the “gotcha” spoiler club with Seven (or is it Se7en?), a fun movie. There is a whole lot of discussion about the magical serial killer. It makes no sense.

It’s the time for the Christmas Wish List of geek stuff that Dale wants. No, seriously. It’s all Dale.

Chris is indifferent, Mark likes pretty colors, Dale hates cliches from other cultures, and Jim is drunk. We also discuss the newest Dr. Who. But mostly we discuss Jim’s drinking problem.

Dale isn’t here so we’re free to talk about things invented after the ’80s. Namely, first person shooters, MMORGs, and free to play games. That mostly means Planetside 2, but we do talk about some others.

We’re like Cracked.com up this podcast! Nothing but lists, lists, and more lists. Dale wants to talk about TV for hours.

We cast aside our gambling devices and head forth into the heady world of the GM telling us whether we succeed. It’s a brave new world, and we hate it.
