I regularly get slagged off for playing inappropriate music at games nights. Even though Knavecon can be a noisy affair I always thought it lacked music, so rather than subject the gamers to my Excellent taste in music I’m bringing in a professional. Say hello to Big Phil. Phil Wade is a veteran DJ who regularly plays in Limerick and as a gamer himself is perfectly placed to produce the ambient atmosphere and background music the con deserves.
An important part of any gaming night is the music. The last thing a gentleman or lady wants to hear is the Tick Tock of ones old grandfather clock from the main reception as you sweep your croupier stick across the playing field. Puts one right off
Too many of us rely on the classics. The Lord of the rings soundtrack, Conan the barbarian or if it’s a game of x-wing the Emperors march.
Now I’ve been accused (quite rightly) of having inappropriate music at a games night, Truth be told gentle reader of late I’ve gotten a bit lazy. I just stick on a web radio like
Radio paradise or Somafm and let the interweb do it’s thing.
By right I should really hook up Spotify but I have my reasons not to. I do have an end of life squeezebox and that performs admirably and a stack of mp3s of questionable value thanks to radio Kerry. That said picking out music during a hand is a sin punishable by at the very least death
So I guess rather than give my opinions today I’m asking what do YOU think is good music to game to? Opinions may vary, Wars may start but the best place to defuse them as always is on the gaming table (unless you have a dark alley nearby)
