Three Die Block #127: UNBOXING DAY

This is it!  The moment at least 14% of you have been waiting for!  Chance and Drew get hold of a shiny copy of the new Blood Bowl boxed set and they...drumroll...unbox it!  Live!  Sort of.  They open it on the show and share their (mostly) unedited thoughts as they go.  Then there is much claiming of being the first American podcast to do this, that or the other.  Fact or fiction?  True or false?  Interesting or colossal waste of time?  You decide...with a not-inconsiderable amount of your time, um, well spent!

Episode 128 - OGRES 3.OGRE

Did you know a single typo is the only difference between 'Hugs Not Drugs' and Hug Snot Drugs'?  We found that out while typing this and trying to think up Ogre puns at the same time.  Luckily for you, this episode is surprising pun-free (I know, right?) as we welcome original Simyin Team Member Jason back to the show to discuss Ogres in tournament play.  Apparently, people play Ogres in tournaments or something. Then we peek behind the Commish Curtain (Is that a thing now?) as TIm, Drew and Chance meet secretly in public at Critical Hit Games to discuss the new Blood Bowl rules and which ones to begin using in our local leagues.  There was laughter, there was whining, there was a surprising amount of Treeman love.  That confusion you feel is well founded.  Stick around if you dare!  (Yup, Treeman pun.  Boom.)

Three Die Block #129: WHAT'S IN A NAME?

So most of our beloved Blood Bowl races got new player names.  Or new team names.  Or both.  Or neither.  What does this mean for you?  Well, for one thing, it means you get to listen to Drew and Chance rant about it for over an hour.  Actually, Chance does most of the ranting while Drew plays the voice of reason in this episode.  Then they talk about some roster called the 'Nobles' like it's a real thing or something.  In the immortal words of Weird Al, everything you know is wrong.  Just be glad we didn't name the episode, 'Say My Name'.  Peace!

Three Die Block #131

The number of X chromosomes in the 3DB studio increases significantly as Drew and Chance welcome local coaches Alex and Candace to the show to discuss women in Blood Bowl!  They talk and the lads listen.  At least they try.  Then they all reminisce about how their teams are faring in their local leagues and cover other random nonsense.  Please excuse the 30-minute WoW digression.  They promise it will not happen again.  Probably.

The Orclahoma Bowl is over, so you know what that means... Chance and Drew tell you about everything they ate!

So grab a big glass of water and settle in.
