Blight and Boon

It's that weird, interim time between Christmas and New Year's. I've been enjoying a bit of a vacation, though it's not been everything I expected (hooray for sudden $500 car repairs for Christmas! Whee!), but it's been good to unwind. It seems most game companies are taking some time off, too. As you can tell from the bit of silence here (the news room isn't exactly flooded at the moment). Don't worry, the site's still going strong. We're taking the opportunity to rest and recoup some. Anyway, as you wait out your midnight celebrations, maybe tune in to some gaming podcasts.

On the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 79: Eberron with Keith Baker; Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 80: A License to Game: An Hour with Ryan Dancey (originally recorded in 2014); Meeples & Miniatures Episode 283: Gaming Review of 2019; Game Classy Episode 202: Rise of Game Classy; Polyhedron Collider Episode 76: The Best Games of 2019; Tabletop Talk Episode 53: Playing Malifaux Online: Vassal with Dan Brown and Steve Johnston; Tabletop Talk Episode 54: Why Ray (and you) Should be Playing Marvel Crisis Protocol; Exploding Dice Radio Episode 13; Blight and Boon – A Godtear Podcast Episode 19: Organised Play Isn’t Just Tournaments; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 33: 2019 Prediction Results; The D6 Generation Pip Episode 34: 2020 Predictions; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 161: The Taverns of Tiefenthal; The Secret Cabal Episode 197: Sanctum, Auztralia and Our Christmas Wishlists; and The Offline Gamer Episode 44: Top Games of 2019.

So long, Monday. We're moving on to Tuesday. I hope your week has started off well. And I hope it goes by quickly so we can get back to the weekend and some gaming. I've got all sorts planned for Friday and Saturday. So let's get there as fast as possible. That includes listening in on some gaming podcasts.

I'm sure there's quite a number of you in planes, trains, and automobiles, headed to Indianapolis. And when stuck in those modes of transportation, there tends to not be much to do. Well, one thing you can do is listen to some gaming podcasts. And that's just what we've got for you here.
