We look back at 2020 and all the things that could have been great but had to suffer from our global condition. The Witcher and Tales From the Loop hit TV. Mork Borg and Ironsworn caught our attention as outstanding RPGs. Warcaster: Neo Mechanical by Privateer Press came and went. GenCon 2020 was cancelled along with everything else. The Dead Milkmen released the Lost Tomb of the Bitchin Chimera for 5E. Heroquest was update and released on HasLab. The Quest RPG still has us curious. Cyberpunk Red on the tabletop preceded the unfinished and buggy Cyberpunk 2077 for PC and consoles. This was not the Year of Dune as we previously predicted. Games Workshop releases the 9th edition of Warhammer 40k and really screwed anybody trying to sell their games, but their webstore. Alan Dean Foster was not paid by Disney and thinks Rey should have been a droid. And finally, the KFConsole is the joke that won’t go away.

It has been one year of Idle Red Hands Weekly. What is the future of this weekly podcast? We talk with Chris, one of the original hosts, about the origins of the Idle Red Hands and the origin of the name. GenCon 2020 is officially canceled, but will still exist as GenCon Online with details to come. We will be trying out the Doomtrooper Digital CCG online. A new edition of Twilight 2000 is on the horizon. Cubicle 7 has released the digital version of Age of Sigmar: Souldbound RPG. The print version is coming late summer. Frontier Developments has announced an Age of Sigmar real-time strategy game. Is this Dawn of War for re-imagined Warhammer fantasy? Riotminds is on Kickstarter with a 5E version of Trudvang Adventures. The irony doesn’t escape us.
