WWPD News From the Front
In Episode 8 of the Outpost 309 podcast, our heroes bring back GameMaster extraordinaire Alex, and go in depth with two RPGs.  The first is Mindjammer, a brand new game with a sci-fi setting, based off the Fate rules.  Next up is a good hard look at Fantasy Flight's Edge of the Empire, in which strengths, weaknesses, and overall quality are discussed.  Family game of the podcast is a simple little fantasy dice game called Dungeon Roll, and a new videogame called Banished demands your money.  Check it out, and make sure to leave some comments on the forum!

Welcome to Beyond The Foxholes Episode 10.

 

We join Ben, Winner Dave, Adam and special guest Andy as they talk all things Flames of War.

 

In Act 1 the guys talk about what they have been up to, look at the latest news from Battlefront and cover our own tournament Breakthrough Assault 2.

 

In Act 2 we look at the current tournament meta, bring in our new section the Mail Bag, cover some over looked rules and talk about "when do you point out a mistake your opponent has made?" (in Adam's case never!).

 

In Act 3 we help Andy out with his list for The Art of War (this does turn into a petty competition between the 3 of us!) and round out the episodes by looking at some new lists ideas for Ben and Adam.
