Dave, Mike and Fab talk Warhammer 40K, Magic: The Gathering and also look at The Expanse Board Game.

Mike’s back on the show and he’s been doing Movember. Just look at that mustache!

Naturally, there’ll be a lot of Warhammer talk in this episode. But we start with Dave reviewing The Expanse Board Game.


After that Dave and Fab discuss Magic: The Gathering some more. Dave reviews Fab’s most recent draft deck and came up with an improved version. At some point the Black Lotus gets mentioned.


Mike then updates us on the latest developments in Warhammer 40K: VigilusDa OrksPrimaris Calgar and other bits and bobs. We talk about the new 40K podcast from Games Workshop.

It even has an RSS feed!

Mike also talks about two Black Library books he’s gotten into recently, namely The Lords Of Silence and Dark Imperium: Plague War. He also mentions Warhammer Horror and Track of Words.

Also check out Karl the Nurgling.

On this instalment of GNR, Dave and Fab talk about Fallout 76 and discuss Magic: The Gathering for ages.

We are back from the brink with a fresh episode of Geek News Radio, massively long as always – mostly because we talk about Magic for over an hour.

Fab’s been annoying his neighbours with his boatswain’s call and Dave is back on Twitter. Fab’s also very excited about Springsteen on Broadway coming to Netflix.


Dave re-reviews Rise of Industry. It turns out he was wrong about it last time.


Fab reviews Fallout 76. Oh boy, it’s bad. You can also read his in-depth review on his blog: Parts IIIIII and IV.

Fab mentions Ivanpah Solar Power Facility.


We talk a lot about Magic: The Gathering which Fab recently got back into and also dragged Dave down with him. Mostly due to MTGA.

Cards mentioned:

We really like the Limited Resources podcast.


We end the show by talking about your feedback. People seemed to really like the return of Dan.

It’s been some time, but we are back. Fab and Dave talk Magic the Gathering, Rise of Industry and Linux kernel shenanigans. Fab also reviews Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

We’ve been away for a while, mostly because Fab was launching Hollywood Outlaws and because of that is currently rebuilding the Sixgun website. He’s also been really busy with work. Since he’s leaving soon for a holiday in the US, expect the episode draught to continue for a bit. We promise we’ll make up for the missed episodes at some point.

Our first topic this time is Doctor Strange, which Fab has finally seen. Dave reviewed it back on episode 27.


In the main part of the show, we discuss the code of conduct for the Linux kernel and Linus Torvalds’ sudden change of heart concerning sweary emails.

Dave revisits Two Point Hospital which he had mentioned on the show before. Fab, meanwhile, has been getting back into Magic the Gathering, because Dave told him about Magic the Gathering Arena. He’s now enjoying this quite a lot. If you’re interested in Magic or game design in general, Fab recommends the excellent Drive to Work podcast by Magic head designer Mark Rosewater, also known as Maro. He also gave a great lecture on game design at GDC 16.

We then have more games content, as Dave reviews Rise of Industry (which he didn’t like at all) and Fab reviews Shadow of the Tomb Raider which he loved. After we recorded the show, Fab also wrote a long review of the game on his blog.
