So I have a great time on this episode! It's a split episode where, after we cover the usual segments, I get to talk to Rob Symes of the GW community team about Warhammer TV coming up on Twitch.tv and all the cool things they will be broadcasting on it. (Even if you've heard Rob on other casts, listen in. We cover some new ground AND Rob pulls in some other members of the community team...and I freak out.) After that my friend Domus is back on the show as we talk about gamer etiquette and how we can all be better gamers.

I hope you guys have fun listening to this one because I think you can tell that I absolutely loves recording it.

Loved this show. Such an adorable "geek-out" moment with an unexpected special guest...

I think have habitually done all those the things you have during games, Dave - from resting crabby face to lamenting my game loss in turn two, and then going on to win.

Being able to reflect on how we come across to others, and a willingness to make improvements is such a valuable skill to learn. It's one of the best things the hobby can teach us.

By the same token, I think it's important to be forgiving of opponents who get into the heat of the moment - competitive gaming does that. To be able to take that step back, not take it personally, appreciate that others have different styles of gaming is another skill that will serve us well as gamers.

Yep, learn from your mistakes and try to be a better opponent. We all have times where we've had stress going on in our lives and then nothing you seem to do on the table top works and you aren't the most fun opponent to play against I think. Just try to recognize it and be better next time. I try to complement my opponent on how he's doing to mask my complaining on how horrible my dice are :)

I'm really looking forward to Warhammer TV tomorrow! It was great to hear the conversation Rob and Duncan! I'm looking forward to hopefully getting to share a pint with some of the GW guys at Adepticon this year.
