Now fans of the show have heard the names Jerry (Delicious) Grayson and Mike Fiegel. You’ve heard us play their games. I feel pretty safe in saying the we here have had a real good time playing the games and talking with them. Hellas their current project has been out long enough for people to start asking/demanding more. The ever popular, “When is the next book coming out?” Well I got an email from Jerry (aka Delicious) Grayson with some exciting news.
“I have the latest book in the HELLAS line done and I’ve decided to try and do a Kickstart model to fund it. Please spread the word to anyone who may be interested in a sci-fi game about naked Greek dudes stabbing people, eating goat meat, and drinking malt liquor.”
That’s right more Hellas goodness and it’s being ransomed. In fact if you check the link above or below you can find out all the details. We here at The Game Master Show are big fans of Hellas and of Jerry and Mike. They have been very supportive of us. So if you have liked what you heard about Hellas or even the designers themselves give the above link a click, check it out, and pledge if you can. Hell if you see the break downs there are some great deals to be had by pledging her support, starting with as little as $1.
So we met last Friday to talk about the podcast and ended up failing to save the world, but then tried again and saved it. I’m talking about Pandemic here, the cooperative board game where you play roles in the CDC to find the cure for four virii before they spread to pandemic proportions and kill off the world as we know it. It’s a great game.
This isn’t a game review though, we just wanted to let you guys know that though we met last Friday we didn’t actually record. Dan wasn’t able to make it, and Erin was just about dead on her feet from work. So we talked a while and played Pandemic to remind ourselves that we are friends and yes, we really do want to do this podcast thing.
Mario and Shaun looked good, and we talked about some of the hurdles that we are going to need to overcome if we are going to continue the podcast. Like: Job scarcity, the distance it is from them to the place we record (my house), scheduling, and possible changes in format (looks like there will be little of that).
So next Friday, that would be April 30th, we are going to see about recording… something. It may be actual play, it may just be a couple of us talking. We shall have to see. It’s still something we do for fun, and we don’t make money off of it (the job scarcity part would probably be easier if we did), so please bear with us as we get closer to the launch of season 4.
We’ve been away for a long time, and are now returning, better than ever!
This is a state of the podcast talk, and as always, we welcome your feedback. We will be returning to the regular show in a few weeks, so stay subscribed and we’ll be back in your ears sooner that you expect.
