Yeah, it’s still two weeks away, but we just can’t contain ourselves. OH and we may have talks a little about the new Star Wars Rogue One trailer. How awesome does that movie look?

‘Sword and Shield’ – Episode 3 – “X-Wings and D&D”

You know how I said third time was a charm? Okay, it might not be. But I swear, I’m going to get the audio right. If you want to help the show out, you could always get me a new mic (winks). This week, Andrew is back and we talk about X-Wings and D&D Encounters. If you’re a newbie and have always wanted to try out Encounters, then this is the episode for you. There’s also a small survey at the bottom of this page regarding Board Game Night! Which Sunday of the month works best for you? Also, there’s a Two Headed Giant tournament this weekend. So make sure you listen until the very end for the details! Thanks for listening.

‘Sword and Shield’ – Episode 2 – “It’s a Conspiracy!”

Hey everyone! We’re back with another episode of Sword and Shield. I guess some of you actually liked it, so we did another episode. This week, we’ve got Andrew Pegg-Wheat. If you’ve ever ordered a card from the store and recieved it by mail, Andrew is the guy who probably packed the card for you and shipped it. On this week’s episode, we talk about some Pokemon, Netrunner, and then tackle Conspiracy 2: The Empty Throne. However, Wizards has been having fun and changed the name again. Now it’s Conspiracy 2: Empty Throne!

 

Also in this episode, my mic sounded low. I’m always working on perfecting the sound quality, so let me know if you have any suggesstion (or if you want to buy me some professional equipment). Anyways, sit back and enjoy the show. Don’t forget to share it with your friends as well!

Sword And Shield Ep.1 – Are We On To Something?

It’s been a while. But we’re back and we’re trying something new here. We all know it’s impossible to get a minute alone with Derek Lloyd. Somehow, we were able to get him alone for almost an hour! In what could be a continuing series, Derek takes time from his busy day to talk about the store. We touch upon games we’re playing as well as some upcoming events at the store. Some of the other subjects we tackle include Eternal Masters, PAX East, and the move from Plainville to Norton.

 

 

Here’s a picture of the trophies he mentions for the 2HG tournament happening this weekend.

Extra Life Cube Draft Parts 1 & 2

At this year’s Extra Life event we were able to set up a live stream and record a lot of the action. Sadly, because we were so new at this, some of the footage didn’t make it. However, the action we did manage to save has finally shown itself. Here is part 1 of the draft portion:

 

 

And here is part 2:

 

 

In this video, we’re watching one of the Abington locals, Jon Kerman, in action. Feel free to comment how bad (or good) you think he did in the comment section. Please remember to be respectful and don’t flame him. He’s still trying to figure this game out. Check back in a few days where I’ll post the rest of his draft, and then I’ll release some of his game play.

 

PS. Don’t mind the other vids on my channel. As a freelance journalist, I sometimes host game trailers. Feel free to watch them as well. In the future we may start a Battleground channel to centralize the video content.
