I hope everyone’s having a great holiday season. It’s been a nice one over here. Christmas, itself, was kinda lackluster, but yesterday we smoked a pork shoulder and made a fruitcake. Smoked pork shoulder might not be the most traditional of Christmas meals, but I could certainly stand to make it a tradition.
Anyway, as for today, seeing as it is Tuesday (though I certainly don’t think it feels like one), we’ve got our regular grouping of gaming podcasts for you.
Today we have: Guild Ball Tonight Episode 53: The Penance Beard, The Cardboard Herald Episode 7: Jamey Stegmaier of Stonemaier Games, Cheated Fates Radio: Special Kickstarter Episode, Singled Out Episode 2: A Newbie’s Guide To The Guild Ball Background, Gamers Lounge Episode 133: Dark Souls the Board Game, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 85: Youth Gaming, Meeples & Miniatures Episode 189: Banter from the Bunker: December 2016, and Geeks of the North Episode 36: Christmas wishlist and PVC miniatures, the future?

Episode 133 is brought to you by two Alex’s. Alex the first joins me for a discussion of our joint trip to Steamcon UK 2016. At Steamcon we had a chance to play in a full-game playthrough of Dark Souls the board game. We discuss that experience and our thoughts on the game.
Alex the Second, Alex Hall of Dark Souls developer fame, joins me for the second half of the episode. We talk about Dark Souls the video game, the inspiration for the board game, and the board game itself. We cover the design, areas we both are excited over, and the kickstarter.
This week Roy & Rob talk about what games to play with youth! And talk what we have been playing Adrenaline, New Angeles, & Mansions of Madness DLC!
