Episode 45: “Lip Service and Mouth Feel”

We’re talking content and those who provide it. Today it’s all about those that give us that good ole hobby boner. The youtubers, facebookers, and other content providers for The 9th Age. So we’re giving some lip service to our favorites.

We are also talking a little bit about Conventions vs Tournaments, and some of the discussion going on about why the former is pretty important for getting word of mouth out there.

So come on in and enjoy episode 45 of The Wargamer Project Podcast.

Updates to the 2017 Carolina Smackdown:
Okay guys, the Misfires are sorry to announce that due to limited reservations and the issue with version 2.0 looming in the near future, the Misfires have decided to change this year’s Smackdown to a 1-day event with 3 games. Admission will now be $15 and there will be 4 prizes, Top 2 Generals, Top Paint, and Best Model.

We wanted to inform you all before making firm plans and so those who have reserved hotel rooms could cancel without penalty.

We are sorry for this change, but we don’t want people making such a long trip for a small 5-game tournament. Please look for us to have Smackdown next year around the same time.”
