Discuss GrogCast Episode 2!
« on: March 17, 2015, 06:17:21 AM »
Now appearing in it’s regular weekly slot on our calendar, the GrogCast parks itself on Tuesdays.

The GrogCast is joined by Chris “MetalDog” of GrogHeads to discuss what we played this week, the Civilization series games, and gaming with your significant other, along with some discussion of the upcoming GrogHeads Central Command at Origins.

I hope that last bit at the end was caught...after the music went down. :)

MD, truly, I was just having fun with you. I hope that doesn't make you mad.

I never thought I would hear 'Candy Land' mentioned so many times in a podcast about wargaming.  :P
Enjoyed the first two GrogCasts. Keep up the good work!

Another fine episode, gents.  Keep it coming please!

I noticed that, yes.  Made me laugh pretty hard.  ;D

If I ever meet MD in person, I fully expect to be socked in the jaw. Not just for that but for punnery in general.

Not that I don't deserve it.

Apropos of nothing, I have to admit I'm surprised at your complete lack of an accent BC.  Given how long you've lived in Houston, I figured you'd have picked up at least a little bit of a drawl by now!

We're good, B_C.  "I always knew you guys hated me," is actually a little joke amongst me and my kids.  It's my over the top answer to them when they do something marginally bad.  It actually just kind of came out before I knew I had said it.  Kind of like all the huffing and puffing I do when you guys stink up the joint with all your bad puns.  (Oxymoron, bad puns.  ALL puns are bad!!!)  And I'm not the violent kind.  I wouldn't punch you for puns.  That doesn't mean I wouldn't find some other way to pay you back for them...

I'm fine with payback, as long as you're not planning on including a chainsaw or a woodchipper in that.

Maybe it's my old age but I had problems telling MD and Brant apart at times.  Or, maybe it's the Texan thing but I recognized B_C every time with ease.  :)

It's my voice and I had to listen closely a time or two.  (I wonder if there is something nefarious I can do with my new found power...)
