Episode 133: Pianissimo and Three Player Games

If you find yourself without your favorite tweezers
just order out for Asian food..
One thing we like about going to ASL tournaments is observing the wide and varied paraphernalia gamers employ to enhance their experience. From storage systems to dice rollers to player aids, the ingenuity of players is almost as interesting as the game itself. Lately we have been coveting instruments to facilitate the manipulation of counters -- especially stacks of counters in crowded terrain. If you've not yet experimented with prosthetics you may learn a thing or two. If you have, we'd like to hear from you about your preferred tools.

We also have an update from Jeff with his latest day at the beach in the Blood Reef: Tarawa campaign, and Dave has a report on the hazardous conditions unfolding in The First Bid.
Dave also has a batch of movie reviews, including Imitation GameAmerican Sniper, and Unbroken. And we end with a discussion of three-player scenarios, which are perfect for when your mother-in-law drops in unexpectedly.

  1. Another interesting show...just had to stop listening for a moment to watch the fight at the end of the Super Bowl.

  2. It seems that chop sticks, even if you're very good at them which I'm not, are too thick and you'd have problems with adjacent units.

  3. I can't believe you actually use chopsticks! I've got to see a video of this...
