This week, I back track a bit and discuss what D&D and Magic the Gathering are and give pointers on how you can get started in these games if you are interested.  I also talk about the new Small World iOS app, a kickstarter that I think D&D fans should support, and close out the show by breaking down the board game "Ticket to Ride"
