The Hub System

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.

We're once more into Tuesday. The work week is well underway. Now, we just need to keep the productivity train rolling and before we know it, we'll be back at the weekend. I know something that helps me through is some gaming podcasts.

This week we have: Plaid Hat Podcast Touring Rock Band: Part 1; News of the North: 2017-02-07; Man Battlestations Episode 15; Anonymous Tabletop Episode 11: XXX Marks the Spot; The Cardboard Herald Episode 13: Jesper Myrfors: Artist & Original Art Director for Magic: The Gathering; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 111: The Castles of Burgundy The Card Game, Flying Squirrels and Our Awesome Wives; The Hub Systems Episode 30: 2017 Musings; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 91: Board Games & Chill; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 18: New Angeles, Santorini and Games We're Looking Forward to in 2017; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 194: Oathsworn Miniatures; and Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 91: The Manhattan Project: Energy Empire.

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.

Well, hopefully you had a good 4th of July (whether you celebrated anything or not. I still hope you had a good Monday). For those getting back to the office today, you might need a little something to help you get through it. I suggest gaming podcasts, as it's a bit of the weekend's gaming (or so I feel, anyway) during the mid-week slog.

Today we have: News of the North – 2016-07-05, Man Battlestations Episode 8, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 208: The Hoffcast, Dungeons & Dragons Podcast Peter Lee and Andrew Veen on Tyrants of the Underdark, Game Classy 117: Live Mailbag!, The Hub Systems Podcast Episode 22 - 3D, or not 3D, that is the question!, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 76- The Networks and Origins 2016, Guild Ball Tonight Episode 41: Estimated Prophets, Singled Out Episode 9 – Talking Masons with Nobby, Gamers Lounge Ep 127 – Kickstarter Threeway, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 61 Q&A, The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 6, and The Rolistes Episode 11 – Supaéro Roleplaying Aircraft Engineers (also we checked-out Warcraft).

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.

Well, we've made it through Monday and are now hip-deep into Tuesday. I know many of you are waiting with baited breath for 3pm EDT to show up (I.E. - just an hour from this posting) as that's when Massive Darkness will launch on Kickstarter (don't worry, Pray For Mojo, we know you're not interested in it ;) ). To kill off that hour (and to help make the rest of the week go by), we've got our Podcast Roundup here so you can drown out your coworker's radio with some gaming talk.

This week we have: Game Classy 115: How to Gold Press Your Latinum, Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 204: Juice and Conventions, Man Battlestations Podcast Episode 7, Geeks of the North Episode 30 – Gamers’ Vault 2.0, News of the North – 2016-06-07, Polyhedron Collider Cast: UK Games Expo 2016, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 74- Antarctica, The Hub Systems Podcast Episode 20 - Back in Business!, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 57 Kickstarter Games, Singled Out Podcast Episode 6 – Talking Hunters with Sir Paul North, and Guild Ball Tonight Episode 39: Community Chest.

Monday's gone. That first hurdle to the work week is in the past. Time to get over it not being the weekend anymore and, instead, set our sights towards next weekend. We've got another 3.5 work days to get through, and we could use something to help make that time go by quicker. I know time tends to speed up when I'm talking about gaming. Thankfully, I get an opportunity to do that just about every day. I know others aren't so lucky. But even if they're not talking about gaming, you can listen to people talk about gaming in the various podcasts. Here's what we've collected over the past week.

We have: The Hub Systems Episode 19 - Salute 2016, Shut Up & Sit Down Podcast #40: Reiner Knizia's Relationship Simulator, Primecast Episode 31, Through Gamer Goggles Role-Play Ramblings 5: Is Cheating Acceptable, Docking Bay 94 podcast Episode 30: Polyversal, Game Classy 112: Better than Deathclock, and News of the North – 2016-04-26.

Monday's gone.
Now we've got ourselves elbow-deep into Tuesday. I know a lot of people that will be headed to Boston this weekend for PAX East. Well, along the way, you could listen to some gaming podcasts. Good thing we've got them all together in our Podcast Roundup.
