It was a thrill to have a pan-Anglo alliance together to raise money for Food Banks Canada, with many current or prior Commonwealth countries represented either on the stream or in the donations. That is globalism we can get behind here at SVWAG. That said, let us make our next planned fundraising endeavour yet more international: a Kickstarter campaign to fund Mark's acquisition of a Ferrari Portofino. Equally altruistic, yes?

    #197: Ankh: Gods of Egypt

    1:20:31

    In the 14th Century B.C.E., the pharaoh Akhenaten attempted to shift Egypt into monotheism centered on the cult of the god Aten. Apparently there's some who argue it was possibly instead henotheism, whereby many gods are acknowledged but one is elevated above the others--a claim advanced about many ostensibly mono- or polytheistic religions, even some practised today--but at any rate is was exceptionally controversial. By the time his son Tutankhaten became pharaoh, the cult of Aten was suppressed, and the ascendancy of the god Amun was restored in a polytheistic pantheon. Hence the new pharaoh's name was changed from Tutankhaten to Tutankhamun.

    #196: Going Off-Script

    1:17:21

    Some things, of course, from Josie and the Pussycats have aged poorly. The idea of "record stores" and CDs (that could, in turn sell out like they were PS5s or something) is downright quaint--especially given the format of this show. I'm pretty confident that the cultural moment of Moviefone Guy has well and truly passed, despite the continued use of both movies and phones. Do people still know who Carson Daly is? I confess I never really did. Mostly I know him from that totally jerkin' movie, Josie and the Pussycats.01:39 AYURIS: Watergate (Matthias Cramer, Capstone Games, 2019)Games Played Last Week:04:10 -Sine Tempore (Luca Bernardini & Andrea Colletti, Ludus Magnus Studio, 2018)06:27 -L.A.M.A. Dice (Reiner Knizia, AMIGO, 2021)07:08 -Llamaland (Phil Walker-Harding, Lookout Games, 2021)11:40 -G.I.

    #195: Cryo

    1:10:19

    The hosts are, briefly, back in the same room again, and this has had the unfortunate effect of bringing out the very worst in Mark. Don't worry, he doesn't spend ten minutes complaining about the implied political claims of kids' shows, but his mind naturally went to the gutter of abominable puns.

    #194: Our Gaming Autobiographies

    1:15:43

    We skip over substantial portions of our hosts' stories, of course. No mention is made of Walker's extensive experience with Gilbert & Sullivan. Mark's stint as the Official Pokémon Master of Canada is glossed over. The deep tribal conflict of Jocks versus Geeks, of which Walker is destined to be the bridge (think Dune but even more messianic), is only alluded to. Someday, the whole story might be told, but you wouldn't believe us. 01:43 AYURIS: Nemesis (Adam Kwapiński, Awaken Realms, 2018) Games Played Last Week:04:27 -Stardew Valley: The Board Game (Eric Barone & Cle Medeiros, CorcernedApe, 2021)11:30 -Imhotep (Phil Walker-Harding, KOSMOS, 2016)14:56 -Sheepy Time (Neil Kimball, Alderac Entertainment Group, 2021)18:38 -IKI (Koota Yamada, Sorry We Are French, 2015)21:43 -Mindbug (Skaff Elias, Richard Garfield, Marvin Hegen, & Christian Kudahl, Nerdlab Games, 2021)27:55 -Paper Dungeons (Leandro Pires, MeepleBR, 2020)29:12 -Ultimate Railroads (Helmut Ohley & Leonhard "Lenny" Orgler, Hans im Glück, 2021), Board Game Arena adaptation by Elena Laskavaia31:36 -Coffee Traders (Rolf Sagel & André Spil, Capstone Games, 2021)34:29 -Magnate: The First City (James Naylor, Naylor Games, 2021)40:45 -Sentinels of the Multiverse (Christopher Badell, Paul Bender, & Adam Rebottaro, Greater Than Games, 2011)41:19 -The Siege of Runedar (Reiner Knizia, Ludonova, 2021)News (and why it doesn't matter):43:16 Loto Quebec's Azul scratch tickets44:50 7.6 tons of counterfeit Pokémon cards45:31 Flat River Group acquires Greater Than Games46:34 Stan Lee's Genesis47:15 A Billion Suns: Warzone49:00 Topic: Our Gaming Autobiographies

    1:16:37

    We have become feature-hungry here at SVWAG. We debut Walker's Language Corner which, let us be frank, is not apt to be repeated, especially given Walker's aversion to dead languages. We finally name a recurring segment that has been airing unaccredited for years, and we have dubbed in Mark's Rage Theatre. It is Festivus every day of the year, and Mark has some grievances to air.

    1:21:27

    One of the great tragic modern misapprehensions of history is the blanching of fascism. It seems that people can watch Attack on Titan and play with their space marines, and simply because there are no swastikas to be found they assume that there are no connections to fascistic ideology contained therein. This is one of the reasons why we so appreciate the humble cucumber sandwich--we would assert that its very fragility and delicacy evoke anti-fascism. Whether one ought to use butter or cream cheese is of great doctrinal import, of course, but we're not gonna get all dogmatic about it.01:47 AYURIS: Undaunted: Normandy (Trevor Benjamin & David Thompson, Osprey Games, 2019)Games Played Last Week:05:07 -Riftforce (Carlo Bortolini, 1 More Time Games, 2021)07:55 -Ark Nova (Mathias Wigge, Feuerland Spiele, 2021)10:21 -1846: The Race for the Midwest (Thomas Lehmann, GMT Games, 2005)20:33 -Railroad Tycoon/Railways of the World (Glenn Drover & Martin Wallace, Eagle-Gryphon Games, 2005)22:20 -Llamaland (Phil Walker-Harding, Lookout Games, 2021)24:53 -Res Arcana: Perlae Imperii (Thomas Lehmann, Sand Castle Games, 2021)27:49 -Faiyum (Friedemann Friese, 2F-Spiele, 2020)30:08 -Regicide (Paul Abrahams, Luke Badger, & Andy Richdale, Badgers from Mars, 2020)31:03 -Dinosaur World (Brian Lewis, David McGregor, & Marissa Misura, Pandasaurus Games, 2021)36:28 -Too Many Bones (Adam & Josh Carlson, Chip Theory Games, 2017)40:11 -Sentinels of the Multiverse (Christopher Badell, Paul Bender, & Adam Rebottaro, Greater Than Games, 2011)42:26 -Ankh: Gods of Egypt (Eric M.

    #191: Keepers

    1:20:02

    Sometimes your devotion and enthusiasm doesn't translate into research or comprehensiveness. Case in point, dear listeners--The Legend of Korra, a franchise Walker introduced to Mark, is one that Walker loves but--shocker!--is one he has only seen but half of. It is revealed during Mark's unhinged ramblings about he would have "fixed" season 3 that Walker is utterly unfamiliar with what he's talking about, and not for the usual reasons. Masterpiece Theatre will never be the same, and Walker just discovered he's got a lot more episodes of Korra than he thought existed.01:12 AYURIS: Tainted Grail: Fall of Avalon (Krzysztof Piskorski & Marcin Świerkot, Awaken Realms, 2019)Games Played Last Week:04:40 -Sine Tempore (Luca Bernardini & Andrea Colletti, Ludus Magnus Studio, 2018)08:15 -Ultimate Railroads (Helmut Ohley & Leonhard "Lenny" Orgler, Hans im Glück, 2021)10:06 -The Siege of Runedar (Reiner Knizia, Ludonova, 2021)11:07 -Furnace (Ivan Lashin, Hobby World, 2021)15:31 -Brew (Stevo Torres, Pandasaurus Games, 2021)17:12 -Bärenpark (Phil Walker-Harding, Lookout, 2017)20:57 -Destinies (Michał Gołębiowski & Filip Miłuński, Lucky Duck Games, 2021)23:54 -War Chest (Trevor Benjamin & David Thompson, AEG, 2018)28:16 -Golem (Flaminia Brasini, Virginio Gigli, & Simone Luciani, Cranio Creations, 2021)31:01 -MicroMacro: Crime City--Full House (Johannes Sich, Pegasus Spiele, 2021)News (and why it doesn't matter):34:09 New Dungeon Bowl from Games Workshop35:24 Horseless Carriage by Jeroen Doumen & Joris Wiersinga of Splotter37:25 Familiar Tales by Jerry Hawthorne and Plaid Hat Games38:21 Star Fighters: Rapid Fire by Michael Dunsmore & Jordan Nichols and Alley Cat Games on Kickstarter 40:07 Parasocial Saturdays!

    "Planned obsolescence" is not just an economic term, it is a way of life for some companies. It is the practice of deliberately making a sold item frail or of limited use until it is unfashionable; this forces the consumer to replace it sooner than they would otherwise. Analysts tell us that it is best deployed by oligopolies to increase their sales volume. Completely unrelatedly, we talk about Games Workshop in the news.Games Played Last Week:01:26 -Mindbug (Skaff Elias, Richard Garfield, Marvin Hegen, & Christian Kudahl, Nerdlab Games, 2021)03:36 -Ticket to Ride: Germany (Alan R.

    #189: Resolving Rules Disputes

    1:12:17

    This topic was suggested by Penn State law professor Jacob Schuman, although let us be perfectly clear that he does not necessarily endorse any of the views expressed. I mean, if Justices Breyer and/or Alito heard us impugn their oracular insights, no doubt we would be put on blast; much like those terrible journalists for having the sheer gall to posit that judges are, well, human and all. Perish the thought! We also apologize for suggesting that textualism does not ineffably guide one to the True and Correct Opinion, just like it did in Bostock, where textualist methods gave you at least three competing interpretations.01:05 AYURIS: Clinic Deluxe Edition (Alban Viard, AVStudioGames, 2019)Games Played Last Week:03:40 -Tinners' Trail (Martin Wallace, Alley Cat Games, 2021)07:09 -Merchants of Amsterdam (Reiner Knizia, Rio Grande Games, 2000) 10:59 -Merchants Cove (Jonny Pac, Carl Van Ostrand, & Drake Villareal, Final Frontier Games, 2021)13:26 -Ra (Reiner Knizia, alea, 1999)15:17 -Isle of Cats (Frank West, The City of Games, 2019)17:52 -For Science!
