Mann's Model Moments

And, once again, we've made it to Tuesday. We've made it past the storms of Monday and can really get into the week. But, of course, at least I'm just wanting it to be the weekend again. Not that I dislike what I do. I love TGN. But... I mean... weekend! I'm sure even professional ice cream taste-testers and puppy-petters are excited for the weekend. Anyway, a way that I've found to make that weekend feel like it's getting here quicker is to listen to some gaming podcasts.

This week we have: The D6 Generation Episode 210: Boardgame Blitz Origin Story & Runewars Miniature Game Preview; The Cardboard Herald Episode 21: Michael Coe of Gamelyn Games; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 115: VAST, Imperial Settlers-Aztecs, Balloon Pop, and Interview with Justin Jacobson; Nerdherders Episode 13 (103) : Live From the Lake; The Rolistes Episode 20 (Part 1) : Nephilim with Mira, Willem & Rob; The Hub Systems Podcast Episode 32: Companion page; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 95: RobbCon 2017; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode: 99: What are you Buying? What are you Selling?; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 22: FAITH RPG, Airecon and The City of Kings; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 202: Armies Army; Geeks of the North: Geeks on the Road – Adepticon 2017; and Man Battlestations Podcast Episode 17.

We're back at Tuesday. And I'm back in the office. Though it's also the first time I've been in the office. How does that work? Well, we're finally set up in the new digs. There's still plenty of stuff to sort out where, exactly, it will all go. But hey, you gotta start somewhere. Anyway, as everyone gets settled in we can put on a gaming podcast so we can hear about gaming while we're unpacking gaming things.

This week we have: The Cardboard Herald Episode 17: Marc Paquien, co-designer of Yamatai; Guild Ball Tonight Podcast Episode 58: By the Fans, For the Fans; The Hub Systems Podcast Episode 31: Girls in Gaming; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 93: Clank! and The Dark Side of Gaming: Obsession; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 95: Out of the Hobby; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 198: Tiny Terrain Models; Man Battlestations Podcast Episode 16; Voracious Gamer Episode 04: Relic Knights again..; and All Us Geeks Episode 75: The Villages Of Valeria Are Nice This Time Of Year.

Tuesday already? Seems it was just Monday yesterday.
Oh... yeah, I guess it being Tuesday makes sense, then. Carry on.
And while you're carrying on (my wayward son or not), you should give a listen to some gaming podcasts.

This week we have: The Hub Systems Episode 26: The Icarus Project, Game Classy 122: Steve’s predictions blow up in his face, The Kick Off – Episode 17 – What We Did this Summer, Singled Out Episode 13 – Newbie Mistakes Part 2, 40k Radio Episode 5: What’s the Deal with Deathwatch?, Nerdherders – Episode 96: GenCon 2016 Road Trip, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 81- Inis, Renegade Game Studio Contest, and Geek Out Volume 2, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 70 Plaid Hat Games with Colby, and News of the North – 2016-09-13.

Welcome back to the work week, for those of you that had yesterday off. For those of us that were working, well, good on us. We've made it through the first day of the week. Just gotta keep up the pace and we'll make it back to the weekend sooner than we think. Something that always helps me is listening to gaming podcasts. Let's see what ones we'll be hearing this week.

Today we have: Mantic Radio – Episode 5, Guild Ball Tonight Episode 44: So Long Summer, The Hub Systems Podcast Episode 25: Firestorm Armada Tactica: Relthoza, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 69: Dudes on a Map, The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 10: Chronicles of Aerthe and Dungeons & Dragons, Meeples & Miniatures – Episode 177 – Imperial Skies, Man Battlestations Episode 10, and News of the North – 2016-09-06.

We have survived through another Monday. The work week's nicely underway and we can start to focus on next weekend. For me, a friend's got a Board Game Day going on at the library they work at. So I'll be taking some stuff out there that I picked up at Gen Con and hopefully getting some games in with them. If not, I'm sure I'll be playing something good.

As for today, we've got our various podcasts, as well as some video recaps from Gen Con.

Specifically, it's: The Hub Systems Podcast Episode 24 - Firestorm Armada Tactica: Sorylians, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 79- Junk Art and GenCon 2016, CONTEST!, Nerdherders Episode 95: Now With 50% Fewer Ingredients!, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 66 Post Gencon News, The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 8, The Rolistes Episode 13 – The One About Me, Me, Me, Meee… (With Awesome Feats), News of the North – 2016-08-16, Through Gamer Goggles Gen Con Coverage.

Monday has come and gone. It wasn't the greatest one for many of my friends. Hopefully yours wasn't so bad. But I know just about everyone's happy that it's over with. The week's good and underway now. Let's help it continue along smoothly by listening to some gaming podcasts. That should help.

This week we have: The Hub Systems Podcast Episode 23- Shattered Void, Who Cares Who Wins Episode 18 – Jamie owes me a pint, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 64 We love Board Games, Guild Ball Tonight Episode 42: Kids, Ask Your Parents, Meeples & Miniatures Episode 174 – The Chicago Way, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 211: Endings, and Announcing the Freebooter's Network.

The week marches on. Monday's finished with and we're getting ourselves through Tuesday. Hopefully your Tuesday is going well. Mine's... dragging along a bit. You know what I need? Some gaming podcasts to listen to while I work on the rest of the day's posts.
