Loaded Dice Cast Season 3 Episode 10: Return of the Yub, Yub

In which our intrepid heroes Dubs, Kevin, Vince and Derek engage in a semi-live podcast (Derek was still in Seattle) with one live audience member, Andrew.  We discover that when you only have audience member heckling you, they're not so much a heckler as a member of the podcast, and so, Welcome Andrew!

We tried out a new format this time to get to the topic a little quicker.  Let us know what you think.  And what is the topic you might ask?  Well, Kevin has a bee in his bonnet about Ewoks.  They simply don't get the respect they deserve and it is all Jar Jar's fault.   Kevin takes us on a Caravan of Courage into the world of the Ewoks and we discuss whether or not they have an important and awesome role to play in Star Wars, or if they are just better edited out.  Within the podcast we begin to illuminate not only these important ideas, but also the brave defiance of the odds that Kevin has mounted in order to ensure that he is (presumably) not a virgin.

Our review this week was a double dose of moviegoing, with Ender's Game and Thor 2 discussed and arbitrarily rated.

With Thanksgiving looming like a deadline from the Emperor, we discuss what we are thankful for, Nerd edition, 2013.  

As always, we hope you hate it!

Loaded Dice Cast Season 3 Episode 9: A Stiff Drink

We're coming to get your brains!  We have none of our own!  Kevin, Evan, return guest Ryan, and blast from the past Matty G rises from his grave!  Together, we discuss the ever present Zombie genre.  It looks like the Walking Dead is really hitting its stride this season, and with Halloween just passed, we take a moment to survey the post-apocalyptic landscape.  We discuss, both in the draft and outside of the draft, what do Zombies really mean?  Is the genre dead, or undead?  Fast or slow?  And the best tropes that exist.  Laughs are had by all, and we drink our fair share of winter beers.

Additionally, Evan provides a fantastic review of the Fate Core RPG system that he, Kevin and wife-unit have been using to run a modern-zombie campaign.

Special bonus game this episode:  Drink every time Kevin says "like" or "narrative".
