This week we have a more normal show after last weeks super serious one.  We do however have a little bit of a call back in the form of a short discussion about how vocal minorities can negatively impact the press surrounding a game.  We talk a bit about the launch of Destiny 2 on the PC and how relatively smoothly it has gone.  We touch ever so briefly on the madness happening in Warframe right now with Twitch streams and free loot.  From there we delve into Warhammer Shadespire and spend a good deal of time talking about it and past Games Workshop games.  This leads to a bit of a discussion about the problem Magic the Gathering has with onboarding new players.  Thalen talks about his experiences playing Orwell, and Tam and Ash talk a bit about the Legend of Five Rings Living Card Game.  Finally we wrap things up with some talk about clicker games in general and two specifically:  Paperclips and Succubox.
