The Game Pit Podcast - Episode 57: The Fury of Dracula 3rd Edition and more…

February 15th, 2016
Sean and Ronan are joined by Steve who is back after over a year away. They join forces to talk about the games they have played, backed, lusted after and tried to have imprisoned. They then put their heads together to hunt out the truth about Fury of Dracula 3rd Edition. Have Fantasy Flight Games cornered the beast or have they let mayhem run amok? 


One of the games discussed is Codex and it is still available on Kickstarter. Here's the link if you'd like to take a look yourself:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

December 22nd, 2015
Hi everyone,
Yet again our equipment has failed and our promised two episodes (LoBstercon and Christmas Show) have run into problems,with the LoBstercon episode recording becoming corrupted leading to much gnashing of teeth and a fatal to the Christmas show.
Ronan is still working hard to recover the LoBstercon episode and we will have an end of year show where we look back over 2015 early in the new year.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support and although we had our sound issues and life did tend to get in the way, we hope that you have enjoyed the show.
Looking forward, in addition to the 2015 round up, we have new show formats up our sleeves including possible famous special guests.
Have a great holiday season and all the very best of luck in 2016
Ronan and Sean
