Games Workshop's Black Library sent us a box load of books to give away.  Just check out this photo, each pile is 3 books deep!

Every other week, we're giving away 3 books to one listener who can 'find the phrase'.  For more details, listen to the show.

Round 3:
"While my guards may sleep and my ships lie at anchor, my foes know full well that the big guns never tire."

First 6 correct responses:

1: Justin Lance
2: Triple Diamonds
3: Mark Dieter
4: Marko Doornbos
5: Allen Stucker
6: Derrick Fain (Moogs)

Listen for the results in Ep 45.

Round 2:
"Through the gates that stand between the mortal world and the immortal Realm of Chaos are now closed to me, still I would rather die having glimpsed eternity than never to have stirred the cold furrow of mortal life.
I embrace death without regret as I embraced life without fear."

First 6 correct responses:

1) Andres Solano
2) Mike Whitman
3) Jack McQueston
4) Derrick Fain
5) Justin Lance
6) Evan Miracle

The fickle die picked Mike Whitman.

Round 1:
"Victory needs no explanation, defeat allows none."

Only 3 people found the round 1 phrase in time:

1) Ryan Taylor

2) David Farr

3) Mike Whitman

The lucky D6 roll, functioning as a D3 in Ep 43, made Ryan the winner!

But before that, Russ reports on his and Nicole's adventures at Carnage 2009 during Achievements in Gaming. 

And don't miss the special "Words from Wales" this episode... Owen brings us news of some of his adventures at the Alamo GT.

We've been boarded by pirates, er privateers! 

The D6G team tackles the new board game Grind from Privateer Press.  How exactly do massive steam jacks play sports?  Now we know.

Howdy D6G Fans,

We had a bit of a SNAFU in Episode 42 and originally forgot to include the Space Hulk results in the show! 

We've corrected this issue and uploaded a corrected version of Episode 42.  The new version was published late on Oct. 27th, 2009.

If you downloaded episode 42 on 10/28/2009 or later, you've got the corrected version of the epsiode.

If you downloaded the show on 10/27 or earlier, simply re-download the episode.  The correct Episode 42 should have a running time of 3:35 minutes.  The Space Hulk results are near the end of the show just after the 3 hr 6 min mark.

Sorry about all that folks. 

Thanks for listening,

The D6G Team
