Episode 68: Intervention

In this episode our heroes are joined by friend Lane to discuss Intervention. Which is a new expansion or "Data Pack" for a card game called Android: Netrunner - The Card Game, produced by Fantasy Flight Games. The rules for Netrunner were designed by Richard Garfield after visiting the ruins of Babylon; the subterranean secret of Memphis and spending ten years alone in the great southern desert of Arabia which (as we all know) is held to be inhabited by protective evil spirits and monsters of death.

Episode 67: Escalation

In this episode our heroes are joined by Lane to discuss the newest data pack which is named after metal stairs that ascend you out of train stations in Europe and possibly other places. Seems a bit odd but there you go... wait... it's -tion not -ors isn't it... Well I'm not writing this again.

PSA: We are going to Worlds so for a while the usual release schedule is out the window! We are doing recordings while there but between travelling and not knowing how much work the audio will need episodes are going to be sporadic. I'll try and keep you updated via the social medias. Hopefully it will be worth the extra wait. Lots of love, Chris x

MS Paint Competition Winner and Runners Up

Listeners were asked to create Netrunner card art in MS Paint (or MS Paint equivalent software) and they did not disappoint. Many weird and wonderful entries later there can be only one...

Episode 64: Blood Money

In this episode our heroes are joined by the pilot of the most successful Biotech deck the world has ever seen, Simon Castle (11th at UK Nats)! Together we ask what's the bloody deal with this new bloody pack Blood Money? Will the conversation come freely or will it be like getting blood from a stone? *Please now insert your own sentence involving blood... and maybe involving vampires.* Too bloody right that person!

Episode 63: One Core Une Fois

In this episode our heroes are using all their deck building might to create lists for people who have just a core set and want to expand their collection. The brief? Create a deck list using one core set and 4 data packs or 2 data packs and 1 deluxe expansion. We also get some help from the very lovely Krystian and Jesse and Nels who give us the skinny on the decks they made.

Episode 62: 23 Seconds

In this episode our heroes are joined by Lane and Cathy to discuss the first post MWL2 tournament, Reading Regional, but also the newest data pack 23 Seconds. Which name refers to an incident where Titan's firewalls dropped for 23 seconds. Of course meaning runners had 23 seconds to go and therefore 23 seconds to flow.

(P.S. If you have never heard the UK Garage classic 21 Seconds To Go you are A. Missing out and B. Likely be confused by what just happened.)

Episode 60: Fear the Masses

In this episode our heroes are joined by friend Lane to discuss the final data pack of the Mumbad Cycle, Fear the Masses. They ask themselves the question: Should all masses be feared? A mass of spiders? Certainly. But a mass of cake or puppies? In the first of several sarcastically boring lectures, we attempt to show there is more nuance to this statement than this data pack would have you believe.

Episode 59: The Liberated Mind

In this episode our heroes are joined by Alice Rees, Birmingham regionals winner, to discuss The Liberated Mind. What a noble path we have set for ourselves. With an emptied mind we can go into this podcast free from the burdens of the world outside. Rising out of the ashes like the Netrunner card Out of the Ashes to rebirth into... a turning wheel of waivers and... vanilla ice is here with his latest single. Not to be missed probably!

Episode 55: Democracy and Dogma

In this episode our heroes are joined by chum Lane to discuss da new data pack I Hope you Like Assets AKA Democracy and Dogma. And lo it came to pass that more people started saying “I trash Caprice for one” and the person playing corp says “errr sorry I’m IG and I’ve got, like, five facedown cards in archives” and the first person says “Oh sorry I forgot... That’s quite a lot of money” and then they both agreed that it was.

Episode 54: Endless Waltz

In this episode our heroes are joined by David Hoyland of the best game you saw last year fame to discuss the finding of the Leela Endless Waltz Deck Club. Ding ding, seconds out sports phrase.

Episode 53: It's Business First

This episode Eady is back in the studio and ready to get down to business! We talk about his trip to New Zealand as well as loads of cards from a data pack. Now I know what you’re thinking. Is it business? Is it Business First? I know what you're trying to say, you're trying to say is it time for business is it Business First? Ooh! Is it business? Is it Business First? To which I respond. Yes. Yes it is.

Episode 52: Kool and the Gang Signs

In this episode the part of Eady will be played by Lane. They are both actually called Tom so that makes the paperwork easier. We talk about cards that aren't talked about enough. Cards that aren't played enough. Cards that have yet to feel the genial caress of a pro-matte sleeve.

Episode 51: Post-MWL Store Champs

This episode Eady is on holiday but dry your tears as Chris is joined by Cathy and Lane to discuss their tournament experiences in a post-Most Wanted List world. Is it a world where we have flying cars and travel mostly in tubes? Or is it a world where the primates have taken over, the plot's a bit confusing and Tim Burton is directing. ALL WILL BE REVEALED. MAYBE!?

Monday, 15 February 2016

Episode 50: Kala Ghoda

In this episode our heroes are celebrating two years of podcasting with a bumper crop of features. Kala Ghoda card talk; a Q&A; Eady being in charge; drinking; that bit after the outro which is sometimes sort of funny; something else we've done before probably. All this for the low, low price of a single click from your mouse.

Episode 49: LonBrigh Store Champs

In this episode our heroes are joined by London meta chums Lane and Cathy to talk about the recent Store Champs in London and Brighton.

(*This podcast description has been brought to you in part by Old Mama Murphy's Deck Wax. If you're not using Old Mama Murphy's, you're not really shuffling.)

In fact that deck is the star of the latest Deck Club! If you want in then you just play the deck over the next few weeks and send us your thoughts (check website for details). Counting to three and spinning in circles for a very long time has never been so fun!
