The Amega Weapon at Gen Con 2014
This is one of many interviews Lumpy got while attending Gen Con 2014. If you want to follow all the interviews and concerts we covered at Gen Con, check out the Gen Con 2014 category page here at indienation.fm.
In this interview, Lumpy catches up with one of the creators/developers of the new board game, The Amega Weapon. Listen in and find out if you can survive the black star in this space adventure board game. Also check out the video (at the end of this post) for more information on the game.
While I didn’t get to actually play the game (or many others for I was at the con to do interviews and not play), I did not hear any negative feedback about it. Anything I heard about the game at the con or after was either positive or, for some reason, confusion as to whether it actually exists.
I assure you it does exists. It is a multi-player board game suitable for the entire family. It is a high quality product with pewter pieces that they make themselves and a game with art work by Greg Winters (known for his Star Wars work). Yes, they put effort into designing a great game but, also important, they put just as much into providing a high quality product and a great price for the gamer.
Talking Gen Con 2014 on Tech Net News and Opinion
If you have never been to a Gen Con, Lumpy will spend almost one-quarter of the show playing some of the artists who performed there and talking about his experience. Lumpy had never attended a Gen Con before. There are a few things he knows for sure:
- He had a great time
- He got many interviews
- He learned much
- He has every intention of returning in 2015
We opened the show with a few tracks from some of the artists who were at Gen Con:
Both of the artists above are members of The FuMP. Thanks to Through Gamer Goggles Lumpy got to attend Gen Con and that is what this edited news edition is all about:
This Video Explains How Patent Trolls Came to Be
If you listen to our news broadcasts here, you are very likely to hear stories about patent trolls and “copywrong” as Lumpy uses to refer to the current state of intellectual property law. It has reached the ridiculous point where trolls are laying claims to broad matters such as playlists and podcasting. This is about as logical as patenting the alphabet. The video below, explains how old law and new tech combined to create software patent trolls.
Welcome to a special edition of The LumpCast. Listen in and enjoy as Boz and I spend some time with the awesome talent of The Dead Good.

Lumpy’s Favorite Pod Safe Tune
Bill Mecca is one heck of a saxophone player. This has been, for a long time, my very favorite pod safe tune. Bill’s current passion is video and voice over work. Excellent Adventure is no more. (To the best of my knowledge he is still playing.) I will have links for Bill Mecca after the video but for now, enjoy this 7 minute jazzy piece of interplay between Bill on sax and Manzana on electric guitar.
Welcome to the First Episode of The Whatever and Whenever PodCast
Welcome to episode 001 of the Whatever and Whenever PodCast, actually, when we recorded this episode, we had not even thought of a name for it. Meshelly and Lumpy just knew that we wanted to add another show to the line up at Indie Nation. We wanted to do news and music… and we wanted to simply use it to hijack the stream when nothing else was scheduled. We also knew we wanted something that would be fun and safe for work. Our thought was something like a drive time show, mostly music, some fun banter and some recent news.
So on the mics we go, fired up idjc (Internet DJ Console) and off into cyberspace we blasted. And remember, you will never know when a new show may stream live and, in the end, time-shifted or live, it is hopefully great content.
