So this episode has become a bit of a nightmare. We lost the roecrdin to a power outage 45 minutes into the first recording. Then we started again later that night and got it all done and then when I went to edit it there was no file, even though I know I recorded it because I was marking the recording times along the way. So what you are getting is Alex and I getting up super early Saturday morning, August 26 and recording the episode AGAIN, and then me getting it ready and out as quick as I can later the same day.

What's up for today? Well, as we explain in the beginning, we skip a few things because we didn't have the stomach to go through them again. Then we jumped into the GHB. We actually got to the exact spot in the book we got to the first time we recorded this, but somehow, even with cutting the voicemail section and the toolbox, the show is actually longer. However, that just means that we spent more time on the book than last time, so you get more meat in this version of the episode than the last one. We cover Everything up to the matched play section and then we dip our feet into that as well, but we don't get all the way into the allegiances. There is just so much there. We want to give you a chance to look at it as well as take a little more time ourselves before talking about it on the air. So be sure to come back again in two weeks for te second half of this awesome book.

Enjoy!

Big fan of show.  I started listening to this episode and found it very interesting that there was a dislike of Triumph and Treachery in the GHB2016.   Personally I thought it was a lot of fun, and am not a fan of the GBH2017 version (haven't played it yet though).  I think the updated version is really too complex vs the older version. 

I find it interesting that at least in my local area and forums/podcasts,  AOS players who played WFB enjoy the increasing complexity of AOS, where the players who started with AOS tend to be less excited.  Is this something you've seen as well?   Locally the more "senior" players refuse to not use the advanced more complex rules which tends to drag us "junior" players into using them.  

Was wondering what you've found and if an episode interviewing/discussing "senior" and "junior" AOS players would be a topic in the future?

We haven't really considered this as a topic. Having played all 3 versions of T&T I do think this version is the best. I don't find it to be more complicated, but that you have more options. That's the thing, you see, there wasn't nearly enough treachery in the 2016 version. I'm loving the options for messing with your opponents in this version a lot more.

Interesting.  I guess I just assumed the treachery part as making alliances and breaking them whenever you saw fit.   In the 2016 version we just would say "sure I won't attack" then totally attack.  But I can see how this 2017 version has more rules that can be used to have more outcome than just that.
