JudgeCast #125 – As Easy as DEC

Yes I know I used this title on episode 38. YOU COME UP WITH NEARLY 100 TITLES AND KEEP THEM FRESH.

Speaking of fresh, we have a brand new IPG out! This one has some big changes, and we go in-depth on the biggest: Drawing Extra Cards is now a warning! We go in deep on what this means with a few examples.

We also discuss some of the other miscellaneous changes to the IPG and some small changes to the rules (A change to casting spells?! Will we need to learn a new mnemonic?), and read the spiciest of e-mails.

JudgeCast SPECIAL – Driving with JudgeCast

On this JudgeCast SPECIAL, CJ tried something different: To capture the usual judge chats that happen after a GP and have them recorded for all of posterity.

The problem? Those chats are made in a moving car, and the sound quality was not good. As such, we decided to release this one as a bonus episode outside of our normal every-two-week schedule! So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the soothing road noises haphazardly edited out as you follow along with driving with JudgeCast. We even answer some road e-mails!
