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.
Today we have: Ice Cream For Everyone Ep 21: Tom Williams, Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 71- The Prodigals Club and Wisdom Check 3, Meeples & Miniatures – Episode 169 – Horizon Wars, Epic Gaming Night Podcast Ep 51 Player or Hobbyist, Tales of Malifaux 28, The Hub Systems Episode 18 – Adepticon & Polyversal, From the Hip talks up the inaugural Connecticut Festival of Indie Games, Irregular Magazine Salute 2016 Videos, and News of the North – 2016-04-19.
I had learned about the murder mystery treasure hunt events organised by A Door in a Wall since before leaving London in 2011 and stayed signed on to their email newsletter so even while living in Asia I vaguely followed the events going on and am still looking forward to participating to one of them.
The live gaming events have been attracting a loyal following of participants, enough for Tom Williams to make this a full time activity and recently the first regular monthly event, called A Veiled Threat.
I met with Tom in London and we had a great conversation about his background and inspiration for the game events he creates for A Door in a Wall. We also talk about arts, Warhammer miniature games, Escape rooms and more. There are a few odd noises in this recording, sorry about that. I hope you still enjoy!
