What was a pretty unchanged game over 4 decades has now, ironically, been given a new lease of life with the addition of Zombies. A 3rd dimension that really creates a sense of tension and uncertainty within a gain that already is quite tense at times.
First up, if you have read the title of this, are a D&D player and have no idea what a False Hydra is… then great! Stop now, don’t google it and go and ask your DM to run one. If he/ she doesn’t know, then have them look it up; it’s a lot of fun, […]
I have been playing 40k since the days of the original Rogue Trader book in all it’s strange and weird glory. I took a small break in between 3rd and 5th editions, but within my time in the game, I never played competitively until 8th edition. Why? Well It seemed a bit more streamlined, and […]
We’re back! just over a year and a half and we’re back in the land of Podcasts. Matt, Josh, Jon Jo, Mark, Dan and Pete talk isolation, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot and try not to get into an argument about Star Wars.. Again.
Yesterday, 25/04/2020, Geek Pride lost one of it’s Editors, to Cancer. Her name was Hani Fearon and she was only 30. Hani was one of the original group who helped start Geek Pride and despite the tumult inherent in sites like ours, she was always there, always helping, always positive and every time I saw […]
TI4 is a 3+ player game, therefore if you only have two people you are pretty scuppered and your options are: don’t play; use one of the internet’s homebrews, which knocks out phases and adds restrictions ORRRRRR you could do what we did and play the 3rd player between us.

All in all, TI4 is a great game (though not the cheapest), balanced, not overly complex, quicker than you might think and with so much replayability. If you are the long hall war gaming type then you'll need to go into it understanding that it isn’t really a wargame, despite its look, it’s a game of diplomacy and threat… with the ability to war it out, if you must.
In the news recently there was a piece about Sony patenting a new piece of technology. This is nothing new for Tech companies in general but where this patent seems to differ somewhat and could potentially be revolutionary to gaming is its algorithms that learn when you are struggling to defeat a part of the game or Boss and then offer you the option to buy a piece of armour, or a weapon , for a reasonable price, to progress past the point you are having issue with.
So we just got a news blast from our friends at Hasbro and it looks like we have some very cool Mandalorian, and more specific, “the Child” related toys / collectables incoming! Seriously the Animatronic Baby Yoda…. its all about the Animatronicbaby Yoda! For all the cool and allllll the cute, check out the press […]
With the LVO nearly upon us and the tournament calendar beginning again I thought i’d explain my down falls as a tournament player and how I think, you could do better. I’ve been playing tournaments in 40k for about 4 years now and despite a 2nd in a one dayer, a 6th and a lucky […]
