In this episode, we discuss sexism and gender bias. To tackle a subject of such delicacy, we use Lego, as you would. We also discuss whether a gaming company can handle tentacle rape in a classy and tasteful way, especially when they don’t even try to.
Please excuse the unfortunate episode numbering. It was completely unintentional.

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”
– Winston Churchill
Was Churchill talking about World War Two or a game of Axis and Allies?
With an apocalypse, the end is not really the end either. In fact, it’s where the fun really begins, if radiation sickness, starvation and sterility could be called “fun”.
In this episode, we talk about the post-apocalypse, including zombies, vampires, farmers, and Sam Gamgee’s second favourite topic.
Special Note: The Novel which Chris refers to, in which weapons are used to remove information from matter, is titled “The Gone-Away World” by Nick Harkaway.
In the first of two parts, we discuss running games set before and during an apocalypse. In this episode, it’s Wayne’s turn to read out the difficult words. Unlike Lyal’s struggles with Icelandic, though, Wayne struggles with English words. Fyndið!
In part 2, we’ll look at playing in a post-apocalyptic setting and the role zombies really play in a zombocalypse.
With Lyal’s work and school schedules and Chris having a baby in less than a month, we’re having trouble recording on our usual day. In order to maintain a weekly schedule and to ensure all three hosts are available for as many episodes as possible, we’ll need to switch to a Sunday upload. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
