It’s a hot day here in Atlanta. Summer certainly has set in (it actually set in a couple weeks ago, but it is Atlanta, so waddyagonnado?). Makes me look forward to autumn. But thankfully, I can sit in this… somewhat-air-conditioned part of the building where my desk is… and listen to some gaming podcasts, dreaming of cooler temperatures.
Today in our Roundup we have: Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 206: Dexterity Game Night, Through Gamer Goggles: Words With Bryan Pope @ Origins 2016, Through Gamer Goggles: Words With Jason Hardy @ Origins 2016, Game Classy 116: Rise of the Machines…, Guild Ball Tonight Episode 40: Scalpel-Curious, Who Cares Who Wins Episode 17 – Sorry Dustins Mum – Engineers and the Games Expo, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 75- Isle of Skye and Convention Advice, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 59 Your Favorite Game, Meeples & Miniatures – Episode 172 – UK Games Expo, OML4 & Tanks Review, and News of the North – 2016-06-21.
Jerry, Brian, Dave, and Alex get excited over the games they’re about to play at Game night.
Bryan Pope chats about Mage Wars, and Dice Tower Essentials.
I caught up with Jason Hardy at Origins 2016. Jason is the line editor for Shadowrun. Jason brought me up to speed on his novel, a few others, all of the shadow titles, a push your luck SR dice game, and we talked about the tarot deck. Oh did I mention Munge? I think that’s the right spelling.
Fantasy Flight brings about the end of the world…again, this this with more Arnold. The boys also talk Evil Dead Kickstarter and Lost Patrol.
