Shroom for Two Episode 21: Sunday Funday

Hello, Heroes! 

Welcome to another suntacular episode of Shroom for Two. This week, we do a spate of listener mail from a handful of our loyal listeners. Then, we break down some of our newest additions in Triassic Triumph. Finally, all the bonkers Solar cards that Mike used to smack Taylor around in the Refightening get some time in the sun.

If you're out there listening, please drop us a line at shroomfortwopodcast@gmail.com! Listener mail is great, but knowing our audience is out there is great too. See you on the ladder!

Shroom for Two Episode 20: The Refightening

Hello, Heroes!

Welcome to another battle edition of Shroom for Two! This week, we show off the decks we built after the archetype draft in Episode 17. We played a 5-match series against each other, and put it up on our YouTube page!

In lieu of our normal show structure, we record a few minutes of preamble, then instruct you to pause the show and watch the matches. Then, after the matches, restart the show to hear our after action report!

We'll be back to our normal format next week. Keep sending in Triassic Triumph-related questions to shroomfortwopodcast@gmail.com!

Shroom for Two Episode 18: Beast Feast

Hello, Heroes!

Welcome to Shroom for Two! The only Plants vs Zombies: Heroes podcast featuring some fan mail from the designers of the game itself!

To start, we climb to the top of a South Philadelphia lightpole and talk about the daily challenges. We posit some different game modes that are analogous to other PVZ game modes.

Then, we read a smattering of listener mail, including one from Devin Low, creative director of PVZ Heroes! We're both over the moon about that, so you get to hear us get all giddy. If you want to send us some listener mail, email us at shroomfortwopodcast@gmail.com!

Finally, we give Beastly cards their turn in the Class Warfare arena.

Tune in soon for our next Battle Royale!

Shroom for Two Episode 16: Guardians of the Guacodile

Hello, Heroes!

Welcome to episode 16 of Shroom for Two! This episode is packed full of cards we love: between Gargologist on Card of the Week, Guardian on Class Warfare, and Spudow on Deck of the Week, you'll hear plenty about why we love to play these cards. Even more astonishingly, Taylor and Mike talk extensively about Guacodile without making a single millennials/avocado toast joke! We'd have thought of it if we hadn't wasted all of our time and money scarfing avocado toast.

If you've got any jokes about millennials, or ideas about what you'd like to hear some millennials talk about on Shroom for Two, please send us an email to shroomfortwopodcast@gmail.com!

Shroom for Two Episode 12: Battle Royale with Cheese

Hello, Heroes!

Welcome to a very special episode of Shroom for Two! This week, Mike and I play against each other in the Budget Constructed tournament we have been talking about so much. Rather than do all of our normal segments, recorded a bunch of matches and posted them on Youtube!

Here's how it works - the first segment of the show is a preamble for the five matches. Then, there's an interlude, during which you're supposed to pause the show and watch the matches. Then, the last segment was recorded after we finished the matches.

Needless to say, the last segment contains spoilers for the matches themselves, so please watch them before you listen to the show!

Show Notes for Episode 12

[0:00] Preamble, before we played the matches

Youtube playlist for our matches! Editor's note: For the final match, Mike lost his video file, so the footage is from Taylor's perspective. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93t2grftj3Y&list=PLynMPM5_VbeKcau6rUIpqtYBKi1ZbGxDq

[3:45] Post-amble, after we played the matches. Watch the matches before you listen to this part!
