It’s Tuesday. So we’re making our way through this week… a week I’ve found out is going to be shortened since we’ve got Friday off due to Veteran’s Day. But even though the weekend got a bit closer, it could always get here a bit sooner. So while I’ve got some other stuff going on this morning, I’ll switch over to some podcasts eventually. Which ones? These…

Adam, Arash, and Joe are back. We’ve even given you some sultry music to open up with before diving in (if you want to skip it go to the ~2:45 mark).
In this episode we open up with some general gaming and hobby achievements and recap Arash’s experience at the NoVA Open in Crystal City Virginia as well as hear from Adam about Live Free or Die Cheating in Manchester, New Hampshire. The end of the episode is a mix between upcoming events (some which may have already happened) as well as our off the cuff remarks regarding the state of the game and the future with Gaining Grounds 2018.

Scary! Booooo! Not like we hate it boo, like ghosts boo. Ok, maybe both. Happy Halloween evrybody!
Holy smokes! Episode 52!? We are really 1 year in? Well I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to have beloved designer Jerry Hawthorne in. Jerry is a designer for Plaid Hat Games, notable for being the creator of the Mice & Mystics line, and his upcoming game Stuffed Fables. We talk about creativity, imaginative play, cutting hair, and raising kids. Jerry is one of the most affable, kind people to have graced the podcast and I can’t wait to have him back on again.
In the meantime, did you know we could get even MORE pretentious? Yes, that’s right, The Cardboard Herald was stupid enough to call someone’s bluff on twitter, and we introduced the youtube series “Rook & Record” where we pair a board game with the perfect companion record in 2 minutes or less. Gotta love that #vinyl, yo!
Luke Retallack of Channel Endgame and Party Loaded is back in the third chair.
