Welcome folks, and happy “139th Anniversary of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral” week! It’s one of the most famous gunfights of America’s Wild West era. Doc Holliday and the Earps were arrested for murder, but not indicted, and the trial put a lot of versions of the story on the record.
Amanda, Julian, Aaron, and Karla are joined by Rob Daviau to talk about Pandemic Legacy: Season Zero. Phasmophobia, Dead by Daylight, Hades, Avengers, Star Wars: Squadrons, International Gamers With Jobs Days 2020, and the GWJ Donation Drive.
Welcome folks, and happy “605th Anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt” week! This is the famous battle featured in Shakespeare's Henry V, where English longbowmen wore down the numerically superior French men-at-arms as they pressed through mud in their heavy armour. Once the French closed the distance, the nimbler archers switched to hatchets, swords, and mallets to finish them off.
Welcome folks, and happy “411th Anniversary of the publication of the music and original lyrics of Three Blind Mice” week! As with many songs from the 1600s, people think it’s an allegory for something that was happening in politics at the time. Apparently it’s a reference to 3 Protestant bishops who were burned at the stake by Queen Mary. Obviously, duh.
Welcome folks, and happy “746th Anniversary of the Invasion of Tsushima” week! This is the week that Kublai Khan kicked off the Mongol invasion of Japan by landing 1,000 troops on the island of Tsushima, as featured in Ghost of Tsushima. Unfortunately, the game wasn’t as historically accurate as it was first hyped.
