Episode 30 - Hex Ed: Strong Start

As the world starts to open back up, we can't think of a better time to start playing Warhammer Underworlds (or start playing again)! Join us as we share what we love about the game, why we think now is one of the best times in the game's history to start playing, and how we think you should start if you're brand new to the game.

In short, buy the Warhammer Underworlds Starter Set & Essential Cards, then choose new warbands from there.

Episode 29 - Cryosleep

6 months after the last episode, we get back together to talk about what they've been up to, their favorite gaming memories over the past 6 months, what they're looking forward to in the future, and what the show will look like for the foreseeable future.

In short, with the pandemic and life/work changes, recordings will continue to be irregular, BUT, we're fairly regularly hanging out in our Discord channel (link below), sharing hobby progress, cracking jokes, & chatting about games.
