We sat down with Fantasy Flight’s Corey Konieczka and asked him about all things Twilight Imperium, from his beginning with the company to the development and reception of 4th edition.

We made it through GenCon! This week is a recording we did the evening before the finals. We sat down with some of our close friends and crew members and broke now all of our favorite parts of GenCon and the Semifinals of the tournament. Afterwards, it’s just Hunter and Matt, giving a rundown of what you all hoped to see from GenCon, vs what we ended up actually seeing.

GenCon is THIS WEEK and we are absolutely flipping our lids. We’re bouncing off the walls and going crazy in anticipation. So what follows is a recording in which we bottle our excitement and present it to you, capped and labeled with just the right level of carbonation. We hope you enjoy as we indulge a little and discuss what we expect from GenCon 2018. Afterwards, Matt does some solo errata on last week’s Win from Ahead episode.

We're gettin' pretty weird today. Main Pod-Daddy Matt is out this week so that leaves Pod-Daddy Hunter to pick up the pieces. So instead of getting anything done Hunter recruits frequent guest Alex to just talk about a TI movie? Yep.

You love it when Hunter is in charge. You know you do.

And so ends our journey through all 17 factions of Twilight Imperium. It was a long road, but we came out the other side with a lot more information than when we started, and so today Matt Martens and Hunter Donaldson have decided to analyze everything they've learned along the way. After discussing all of the guides, we'll discuss what's next for Space Cats Peace Turtles, and then, as usual, some errata! This time from the madness that was the Yin Brotherhood guide.

For as long as space has had cats and peace has had turtles, Matt and Hunter's relationship with the Brotherhood of Yin has been tumultuous. It’s finally time to settle the score and break down these booger-boys. What does it take to unlock their kamikaze potential? Join the only person qualified to help, JattaPake, as he explores the depths, and then afterward, someone will respond to your errata on last week's Hacan guide!
