Nerd Words Episode 134

Nerd Words Podcast 134.jpg

In this episode, we discuss our time away, crazy neighbors and living in new spaces, and we review the upcoming tabletop role-playing game, “They Came From Beneath the Sea!”

THEY CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA!

They Came From Beneath The Sea! is a new game encompassing the wonder, horror, thrills, and hilarity of 1950s science fiction. This game will evoke all that is great in the B-Movies of decades ago, and provides a dynamic, fun experience at the table.

Our review starts about 30 minutes into the episode, if you want to jump ahead and skip our banter. “They Came From Beneath The Sea!” is developed and conceived by Matthew Dawkins and published by Onyx Path Publishing, planned for a 2020 release.

In this very special (and a little bit late) episode, we get drunk and try to talk about H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. Margaritas are had by all. A little like drunken history, but way less organized, we slur and stumble our way through the rich and vibrant history of a masterful horror author's most respected legacy. 

This episode is dedicated to the dearly departed Frank Flentge. May you finally find your Madness Mountain. 

Nerd Words Throw Down 1

Here are the topics for the first episode of the podcast:

1. What is the worst video game franchise?

2. what is the worst sequel to a great movie?

3. What popular musician of the last ten years should be stricken from history?

4. What is the best Horror movie?

5. What was the best FPS of 2015?

6. What is the most over-rated TV show?

RULES OF THE GAME

Three challengers face off in the debate for the ages.

Each contestant will be asked a question and will have 2 minutes to assert his position.

After each contestant states his position, the argument phase will begin. In the argument phase, each contestant will have 30 seconds to ask any fair, clear question that has a direct bearing on the debate. The questioner may use this period to build up any part of his own case, to tear down any part of his opposition's case, or to ascertain facts. The questioner may make comments, statements or ask rhetorical questions. 
after each contestant has used his 30 seconds, he will have 10 seconds to state his final case.

At the end of this phase, I will choose a winner of the round based on the most convincing argument - not necessarily which contestant I agree with.

after 6 rounds, the two contestants with the most points will move on to the Shotgun Round.

In the Shotgun round, I will give two options (i.e. who's the better super hero - Batman or Superman?) and the first person to shout their position (Batman!) has 15 seconds to defend their choice. The other contestant must defend the unpicked option. After 15 seconds, you'll have two 5 second phases to argue. I will pick the winner as I did in the previous phase of the game.

there will be 4 rounds of Shotgun. In the event of a tie, we will have a sudden death tie-breaker of Shotgun. Winner take all.

NOTE* You can cheat. You can lie. You can site false facts. If your opponent calls you on inaccuracies, we will fact-check. If you are caught lying, you lose the round. If your opponent falsely calls you on something, he must remain silent for the remainder of the round. As the judge, I will not call anyone on their bullshit, if I spot it, until the end of the round.

The judge (me) must base his decision entirely on the material presented, without regard for other material which he may happen to possess.

The contestant with the most points at the end wins!

Hello friends and fans. In this episode we talk about horror movies. We discuss Freddy, Jason and Michael Myers - and the concept of franchise horror films. We discuss what got us into horror films and our personal favorite sub-genres. We trash talk about movies we use to victimize our friends and we unceremoniously crap on True Blood and other terrible "horror". Chance gets pooped on and we rant off the rails.
