I had SO much fun at Gen Con that I needed TWO episodes to talk about all of it!  So in 2 weeks, you'll get the second half of everything I did and saw at the best 4 days of gaming (and they aren't kidding!).  In this episode, I spent a lot of time at the Cool Mini or Not booth, and I talk about the various games that I played.  I also run down my Top 5 favorite moments from Gen Con, in addition to talking about some of the Titansgrave stuff I saw.  Last but certainly not least, I got a chance to interview Jason Bulmahn from Paizo, the Lead Designer for the Pathfinder RPG! In fact, he was the one wrote originally wrote the game!  It was so cool to get a chance to talk to him, and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did.

Apologies up front for the audio quality at the beginning of the show. This episode was recorded on the road this weekend as we came back from MAGfest (Music and Gaming Festival). We talk about the convention, all the stuff we did, and even look forward to the next big convention: GEN CON!

It has been awhile, but I'm back with some board gaming to talk about!  No Magic the Gathering in this episode, expect a whole episode talking Magic to come out really soon. In the meantime, we've got Gen Con releases to talk about (at least the new Fantasy Flight Star Wars announcements), and a breakdown of AEG's Smash Up card game!

We are back!  Pardon our mess as my studio flooded last month and we are finally to the point where we can record again.  We slowly figure out what this podcasting thing is again, and try out a couple of new things (I try telling jokes, for instance).  In addition to that, with Gen Con this past weekend we take some time to talk about some new games that we are interested in.

This week's hashtag - #failedgenconreleases

Last week's #reallifevideogamings:

Chris: “Mailing out invitations for friends to come farm crops next to my fields” “For Philip - tactically taking out enemy vermin (groundhogs) sneaking into your base (yard)” “Packing up a moving truck” “Throwing banana peels on NASCAR tracks during a race” “Why is it every time I pop these white pills my coworkers turn into ghosts? Blue, delicious looking ghosts” “Parachuting off the top of my apartment building because I’m too lazy to take the stairs"

@popculturecube: “At the dump, jumping into old pipes and punching cardboard boxes, before jumping on toadstools.” “Growing crops - then foisting them off on friends"
