About this Episode

The Great Beards of Westeros are back for another episode, this time featuring a most honored guest: Evan Johnson, marketing writer for some random game publisher that no one has heard of, ever.

We're discussing the post-GenCon meta, preparing for worlds, the impact of the new seasons agendas, and much more!

Also: spoilers! We preview two very interesting cards from the upcoming Lannister deluxe expansion, Lions of Casterly Rock.

Please note: we had issues with our podcasting service this week meaning the audio editing took a lot more time and creativity than usual. Hopefully you won't notice too much, but keep it in mind if you hear something that sounds a bit off.
