This week, Andrew and I are joined by a special guest – Alex Moon. He’s on this week to talk about his experience playing Warhammer 40K. We also pick his brain about how to get into the game as a beginner. More importantly, we talk about the decline of the game and what can be done to help preserve it and help maintain a healthy level of competitiveness.

Behind The Shield – Episode 14 – “A Friday the 13th Spooktacular”

It’s Friday the 13th! So you know what that means! Okay, it doesn’t mean much. It’s just another week and another episode. But there are some exciting things that Andrew and I do talk about like Captain America, Eternal Masters, and more. Andrew’s even working on a board game that I get excited about; maybe more than him? HAHA

 

Ps. You’re reading the title correctly, it says episode 14. What happened to episode 13? Maybe it’s bad luck or maybe it’s locked away in Prince’s vault. It exists, but no one is sure where it is…

 

Also, if you’re interested in registering for the Eternal Masters events, here’s the link we talk about: http://bit.ly/1R1pzaI
