What's this?  A video game being discussed?  Yes, but not quite, as I recently got into the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft closed beta.  Hearthstone is an online collectible card game based in the Warcraft universe, and you guys will definitely want to check this game out when it comes out of beta.  In addition, I discuss how the Theros Game Day went, how I finally won in X-wing, and elaborate some on the world that I set my recent D&D campaign in.  The episode finishes off with my Board Game Breakdown of Ascension by Stoneblade Entertainment.

Boards & Swords #1: Settlers of Catan, Creating a Dungeon, and Getting into Friday Night Magic

Welcome to Boards & Swords - a podcast exploring the world of tabletop gaming.  In this episode, I give some quick thoughts on the new game ROFL, discuss how I've gotten my daughter Chloe and myself into Friday Night Magic, and then briefly mention some of my upcoming adventures for my D&D group.  I finish off the episode by breaking down a very popular game that has been used by many as a gateway into board gaming - The Settlers of Catan. I'd love to hear your feedback!  The show is still new, and I'm still looking for ways to improve it.

The Adventures of Chloe #6: "On Our Way To Gaming Night"

I've been wanting to do a new episode for awhile, and this week Chloe and I were totally going to sit down and do one, but we ran out of time heading to our latest tradition - Board Gaming Night!  So, I unplugged the recorder and took it with us as we talk about some of the board games that we've been playing recently. adventuresofchloe.com adventuresofchloe@gmail.com Ask Chloe a question on twitter - @AskTheChloe
