It's Tuesday. Congratulations on making it here! With any luck, your Monday wasn't so bad. Mine was busy, as many days are lately. That's not a complaint, mind you. I'd rather have things to do and be pleasantly busy as opposed to waiting on people in order to get projects done. So yes, busy is good. They make the day go by faster. Also, podcasts help the day go by faster. So let's get you some podcasts and hopefully your day will be over quickly and easily.

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday.
I'm glad it's here. My Monday wasn't the best. Much of the day, I had a headache. Hell, I even managed to wear the wrong shirt (I had my Tuesday shirt on under my Monday overshirt.

It's back to the daily grind. An extra day off was rather nice. And it's never a bad time to reflect on where the US was and how far we've come, but we still have so far to go. But, in the meantime, gaming. (hey, I don't like the site being political, so there). Seeing as it's Tuesday, the work week got a bit of a jump with that day off. So let's see if we can make this short week feel shorter by listening to gaming podcasts while we go about our daily routines.

Tuesday. I know that Arthur could never get a handle on Thursdays. I feel that way about Tuesday. Sure, the week's well and started, but it's like Monday 2: Mon Harder. Not that I think it's particularly as bad as Monday, but still, it's a really long way from the weekend. Gotta make it get here as soon as possible, and some gaming podcasts can hopefully help with that.

I've always preferred Mondays off to Fridays. I mean, sure, you still get a 3-day weekend either way. But, with a Monday off, it's a long weekend and then a short week. I like that more than a long weekend and then a regular week. You're already 1/5 closer to having some time off again. And to help things speed along even more, there's gaming podcasts to listen to.

This week we have: Man Battlestatsions Podcast Episode 22; Singled Out Episode 45: Talking Guild Identities; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 227: Firestorm Games; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 121: Totality!; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 126: Gen Con 50 with special guest host, Rodney Smith from Watch It Played!; The Cardboard Herald Episode 43: Isaac Vega - Designer & Plaid Hat Games VP of Research and Design; The Secret Cabal Episode 142: Fate of the Elder Gods, Cry Havoc, Gen Con 2017 Post-Show and a Short Topic Extravaganza; SAGA THORSDAY 53: UK Northern Melee; and The D6 Generation Episode 220: Gen Con 50, Company of Iron Interview, & Play by Mob 2017.

Yesterday seemed to go by quick. Being busy will do that. And there's very little time of year that I'm busier than the weeks leading up to Gen Con.

I know this post is going up at 2pm. But I'm not actually typing it at 2pm. I'm sure you all know that I'm not really frantically typing out posts and making sure to hit the "publish" button right as the hour strikes. No, I get these things put in ahead of time... so I can be frantically typing on some other article I need to write or working on a proofing project or something. :P
And while doing those other things, I'll tend to listen to some gaming podcasts. Like which? Like the following...

Today we have: Masters of the Forge: Altar of War Episode 4: Tidebringer Assault; Nerdherders Episode 16 (106): Arcade (on) Fire!; Mantic Radio Episode 10; After Ullanor Episode 11; It Will Not Die Episode 20: Ulterior Motives in Frostgrave; The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 26: The Great UK Games Expo Caper Part 1; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 109: Kickstarters; Gamers Lounge Episode 138: Star Wars Rebellion & Legacy Campaigns; The Rolistes Episode 21: Tu Vuo Fa Il Ruolista (at Stratagemma, Florence); Rolling Dice and Taking Names Episode 120: Lorenzo il Magnifico, Emerson Matsuuchi (Century), Honshu, Element; The Cardboard Herald Episode 31: Jonathan Ying, former FFG in-house designer; The Secret Cabal Episode 136: Railroad Revolution, Railways of the World and a Short Topic Extravaganza; SAGA THORSDAY Episode 41: Irish Battleboard and Tactics Pt 1; Tales of Malifaux 57; Man Battlestations Episode 19: Battle of Midway 75th Anniversary; and Pint 'O Comics: Any Good Game Is Gonna End In A Fist Fight.
