FAQ You Like a Hurricane!

Hello Night’s Watchmen and welcome back to the Cast in the Darkness!


I’m here with the second episode of the podcast this week!  Ordinarily I would have pushed this to the weekend, but since we are putting the Episode reviews up each week there isn’t any convenient place in the schedule for this episode!


Episode 14 is entirely about the recent changes to the Game of Thrones LCG by Fantasy Flight Games.  We discuss a few new errata (one which creates quite a stir with our panel), and the restricted list changes which promise to shake up the metagame like we’ve not yet seen!


Take a listen to this episode of the podcast to get our thoughts on what the FAQ 5.0 changes mean for the game, and what it means for our enjoyment of it.  You can listen to Episode 14 of The Cast in the Darkness HERE!

A #GameofThrones LCG Store Championship – Round 3: Dom vs Matt

Hello there Night’s Watchmen and welcome back!


I’ve got Round three up from the Moncton Store Championship and it was a painful one to go back and watch for editing.  I made at least four debilitating mistakes each of which serving to cost me the game as it went on.  You’ll see for yourself in this video just how low tilt can bring a gamer.



Up next would be Nick’s round three match, but the battery in the second Go-Pro died at the end of round 2, so we took the third round to charge it up so it would be all ready for the ever important Win and In scenarios in round 4!


So next up we have Nick’s Win-and-In against Tim Linfield in round four.


Stay tuned!



#Gameofthrones LCG: Store Championship 2014 – Round 2, Nick versus Jeff

Hello there Night’s Watchmen and welcome back to the Cast in the Darkness!


I’ve got the second of two Round 2 videos here for everyone to enjoy – this one features Nick with his Targaryen 222 deck facing off against Jeff’s Lannister No Agenda Turbo-Kneel!


You can see this one is pretty back and forth most of the way through this 10 turn slog!



I’ll be back next time with the first video from round three of this series – Baratheon 222 faces off against a Siege of Winterfell deck!


And coming up soon I’ll have the Chapter Pack review for the Spoils of War pack that was released last week.


And finally – Game of Thrones starts tonight!  Kristina and I will be watching it and we will make sure to have our thoughts on the episode up on the podcast server tomorrow night!


That’s all from up here on the Wall.  Until next time remember, the night is dark and full of terrors.

2014 Moncton Store Championship – Round 2 Lufa vs Matt

Good morning Night’s Watchmen!


Nick has been bugging me for months for the opportunity to do some commentary tracks for the games we play – and the 2014 Store Championship was the perfect opportunity to experiment with this.  The stakes were high so players should be at their best, and most of the decks we see will be legitimate strategies (fewer off-the-wall builds than we would see on Game Night, Tim…)


As you saw in Round 1, Nick finally got his wish.  He, Clay and I teamed up to commentate on Kayne’s match with Justin in round one, and the two of them are back at it in Round 2, commentating on my match with Lufa.


You know how I said that at the SC players will be at their best?  As you will find out in this video, that is not always true.


Join us next time when we finally see Nick in action with his Targ burn deck against Jeff Harper’s Lannister No Agenda!!


And be sure to check out the podcast, which is going to go next level starting next week!

Cast in the Darkness Episode 11 Car Cast 2, Part 2 – A Great Fall

Hello Night’s Watchmen and welcome back to the Cast in the Darkness!!


Kayne Nick and I are headed back home from the Store Championship in the latest episode of the Cast in the Darkness podcast.  Was I able to repeat as Moncton champion (after winning the HCHC in dramatic fashion in January), or was the Moncton crew able to hold serve and retain their Store Championship?


You’ll have to tune into The Cast in the Darkness to find out!

#GameOfThrones LCG Store Championship 2014: Round 1 Tim vs Matt

Welcome Back Night’s Watchmen!


Today for your viewing pleasure I’ve got the first of seven videos from the 2014 Moncton Store Championship.


The second video is taking longer than expected to come out because we are trying to do something a little different with the videos from this event!  I promise, it’ll be worth the wait, however.



Stay tuned to the Cast in the Darkness for Episode 11 of the podcast, dropping soon!
