Episode 117 - The Whole Boggs and Dice*

March 15, 2017

*No dice discussion included

Lead Designer and Developer Michael Boggs joins the panel to discuss exciting topics such as:

- Michael's design philosophy, from faction-specific abilities to generic game abilities to resource accumulation.

- Silver bullets vs more flexible answers - we get Michael's thoughts

- Weyland! What is the future of Weyland's colour pie in ANR?

- Will we see a banned or restricted list in ANR?

- Rotation: How will the Jackson-shaped hole in the game be filled? 

- 3/2 agendas! What gives? Will we see more? Will they be more like Merger or AstroScript?

- The future of big box releases.  Will we see campaign driven expansions, faction boxes, something else or none of the above!?

- Managing the metagame: what does a healthy metagame look like, and how is that managed from a card design and MWL perspective?

- The MWL! What does Michael think of it, and what will it look like in the future?

Episode 115 - Daedalus Complex (Runner)

February 24, 2017

On our agenda:

  • Jesse and Wilfy discuss Wilfy's latest Store Champs triumph - what were his decks, how did he celebrate, and what is it like being a plaque blocker?  Do we need to alert the rogue bioroid recovery unit about his "unusual" behaviour?
  • Does Maw do enough to see play, or would it need to do a bit Maw in order to make our decks?
  • Will we be able to Exploit the Weakness in corp decks at the moment, or is it sufficient do just go with a classic Emergency Shutdown in that slot?
  • It's a Mad Dash through the runner side of the pack - what will we take with us and cram into our decks before we get onto the corp cards?
  • Thank you to our listener who provided us with the definitive answer to the Sifr pronunciation question!

Episode 114 - State of the Meta

February 14, 2017

On our agenda:

  • Wilfy, Hollis and Jesse get their heads together to consider what is going on in this crazy, wild meta at the end of the Flashpoint Cycle.
  • Jesse and Wilfy share a new brew they've been working on, letting you in on the draft stage and talking through how they're trying to harness the power of some new cards to spice up an underutilised old archetype. 
  • Wilfy's emotion chip has overloaded, so he delivers some of his classic deadpan bioroid lines, reminding us of his days as a 1.0

Episode 111 - Quorum (Corp Side)

January 19, 2017

On our agenda:

  • How far is too far? Do we really need Violet Level Clearance or were we happy in our blissful ignorance down at Blue Level?
  • Can we pay 12 for ICE in this (Sifr) day and age? Does Chiyashi shred enough runner skin to see play?
  • What is Herald even supposed to do?!
  • What's better: 3 to rez and 7 strength, or 7 to rez and 3 strength? The panel considers this age old question!
  • Does Brian "Stinners" Stinson give Weyland the repeatable economy they've been crying out for?

All this and more!

Episode 110 - Quorum (Runner Side)

January 9, 2017

On our agenda: 

  • Jesse's read Neuromancer and now he's really worried about how Wilfy's sentience has developed and which other AI he has been colluding with. 
  • Will SIFR be the end of ICE as we know it?
  • How does Aaron Marron help Criminals deal with their card draw issues? Will 24/7 ever be playable again with so many answers in the metagame?
  • How does Encore compare to Time Walk? Will Encore be $1500 per copy, and banned in all formats other than Vintage? Will extra turns prove as fruitful for runners as they are for magicians?
  • Is Peace in Our Time the best Anarch economy card since Temujin Contract?
  • Will anyone play Fawkes over Dagger?
  • What's the go with Sunya?

December 19, 2016

Episode 109 - the final TWA episode for 2016 - is finally here!

Jesse and Wilfy take you through their much anticipated review of the corp side of Martial Law, including the answers to such inane and/or profound questions as:

  • Have Fairchildren peaked already, or does "4.0" top the previous model?
  • Will Wilfy be playing any Mind Games?
  • Do the first two cards in the latest cycle of Regions have enough teeth to snatch those precious corp deckslots?
  • Good Weyland ICE? What is this world coming to? 
  • What does Wilfy think of meat damage-dealing agendas now being a part of the neutral colour pie?

And so much more!

December 5, 2016

On our agenda:

  • The panel ponders the alternate reality in which this pack was legal at Worlds and NBN wasn't 100% of the top cut (shout out to On the Run and Misdirection)
  • Will Apex's hunger finally be sated with the addition of Reaver to its card pool
  • Interdiction v Rumour Mill - which one will get the nod?
