Episode 137 - Core 2.0 Discussion and Runner Review

September 24, 2017

On our Agenda:

  • Jesse and his lovable bioroid sidekick Wilfy are joined by their old friend and long-time TWA panellist, Hollis Eacho!
  • The panel dives headfirst into Core 2.0 - what does it mean for the game?  Is it a good thing?  Is the sky falling?  Can you still score/steal agendas without your favourite card that is now no longer available for play *cue tears*?
  • Runner side changes - we run through all of the ins and outs for Anarchs, Criminals and Shapers.  
  • Have Anarchs been unfairly targeted with the loss of so many key cards, or will they still rise out of the ashes to play a key role in the metagame going forward?
  • Look out for the second instalment of our Core 2.0 review in the coming weeks, highlighting all of the corp changes and what they mean for the metagame.

As always, get in touch!

Episode 133 - Free Mars (Bars) - Runner

August 10, 2017

On our agenda:

  • Wilfy and Jesse dive into the world of Free Mars (bars), with more jokes about martians and chocolate bars than you can shake a stick at!
  • This pack features two new very powerful AI programs, God of War and Maven.  The panel talks you takes you through the attributes and shortcomings of each, and how they might best be used to terrorise your opponents' ICE.
  • Na'Not'K is as close to a green Mimic as we could hope for - will this free up some important influence in Shaper?

Episode 132 - Blood and Water (Corp)

July 31, 2017

On our agenda:

  • It's a jam-packed corp side of the pack, with 13 cards to discuss!
  • How does Wilfy rate this pack where 100% of the purple cards are bioroids?  Does he have the inside scoop on Loki? Did they go to bioroid daycare together?
  • Obokata Protocol is one of the better agendas to come out recently, and certainly ranks up there with the better 5/3s in the game.  When and where does the panel see it being played?
  • "Success" completes the trifecta of fast advance options from the Jemison identity card's subtitle.  How does this triple stack up against Sacrifice and Audacity, and how does it compare to its closest friend, Red Planet Couriers?
  • Is Whampoa Reclamation the new Jackson, or is another card secretly the best Jackson impersonator in this pack?
  • Mass Commercialisation is a very powerful new economy event for all corps.  How and when will it be utilised?

Episode 130 - Blood and Water (Runner)

July 24, 2017

On our agenda:

- Our ANZAC episode, the original episode 130 has gone missing!  Hopefully we will be able to relocate it soon, and in the meantime, episode 131 is ready to take its place! 

- Wilfy has a brand new award to talk about!  What is it? You'll have to listen to find out.  Hint: he's already won it 8 times before!

- Blood and Water is packed full of cards exploring interesting design space.  Join the panel as we move well and truly into the second half of the Red Sands Cycle.

- Will Alice Merchant do what Omar has so far not quite managed, and emerge as a force in the competitive metagame in and of herself (i.e. not just as a Rebirth target!?)

- Is Jargoniew Mercs the new Plascrete for the new world?  Or does it ask a bit too much to be a staple across different types of decks?
