So I’m going to be visiting my family over the weekend. Not to say that I don’t love my family and all, but there’s a good chance that, at some point, I’m going to want to just retreat away and be in my own, little world for a bit. You know what will help? Some gaming podcasts. Those will definitely help.
So let’s see which ones we’ve got for this week: Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 195: Games for Gifting, Game Classy 103: The Butthurt Awakens, Roll Dice Take Names Episode 82 – Who Are You: You got Questions We got Answers, The Polyhedral Knights Podcast Episode 5: Get out of the Tavern!!, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 33 STAR WARS with Alex Eding, Dog and Thimble Podcast: Best Board Games of 2015 Awards Spectacular, and Blue Peg Pink Peg Episode 63- Imperial Assault & Alternate Holiday Buying Guide.
Isaac, Peter, Cory, and Alex talk about games that they would give if money were no object, and some to give that are more realistic.
Joe gives his initial feelings on the new Star Wars while Steve desperately clings to the hopes it’s bad. We also get a Kickstarter roundup and Joe reviews Keep Talking and nobody Explodes.
Well, the end is upon us. We have completed another year of podcasting and we thought, hey, for our Third Anniversary show how about we answer some questions. And as I always say when someone says “I got a question”, I respond back “I got an answer, maybe they will match”. And this has never been more true than in this show. When we thought of doing this, we were concerned that only our 3rdanniversarymothers would send in some questions, but we were very surprised by the response we got and we thank you for it especially since our mothers didn’t come through. Some of the questions were very thought provoking on our part, some were no brainers, and others just caused a squirrel moment. Hopefully we covered all that were asked and some answers may make you sit back and go “Really?”.
This is the last show for the year and we will return in January ready to take on 2016. We look forward to returning next year with more reviews, Flying Squirrels, and bring back our regular guests. Who knows what will occur in 2016, but hopefully we will continue to entertain, inform and make fools of ourselves. Thanks for listening in 2015 and please don’t hesitate to drop us a line either at our BGG Guild, Facebook Page, or here.
Be sure to come back to our website later today for an announcement on how we plan to celebrate our 3rd Anniversary.
