So it's our annual live Origins show. (as a side note, we're stuck with their audio system, so that's why things are they way they are.)
We talk about games we played at the convention, including Coimbra and Reef, talk about the convention as a whole, have a game show with Sam Healey and Zee Garcia, and end the show answering a bunch of weird and crazy questions!
In this episode, we talk about Magic Maze Kids, Boomerang, Kashgar, Pursuit of Happiness: Community, Way of the Panda, and My Little Scythe. We also talk about the upcoming show Origins 2018!
