Dice Tower Network Podcast: The Geek All-Stars

The Geek All-Stars is a podcast about board games, card games, video games, MMO's, movies, TV, and anything else that comes to our minds. Each episode contains a varied group of "All-Stars" from the geek world. Join Dan/GeekJock to discuss the topics of the day. We are joined, on a regular basis, by industry insiders such as Dice Hate Me Games' Chris K, video game developer/journalist Josh Augustine, prominent bloggers such as Tom Gurganus, and (of course) guys with more games then we care to count (as in Adam O.) I cannot promise we will always stay on topic, but I can promise we will have a good time!

Stories: The Path of Destinies (free on Playstation Plus until the end of December!) Very fun, but rated T for “violence, blood, and mild language”. For Andrew, it’s a “popcorn” game – like

Don't be alarmed by the short duration of this show (clocking in at just over 2 hours) it's CHUCK FULL of discussion goodness. Between movies, KS project rants, Q and A and of course Gamers for CURES, you won't believe how much we stuffed in here! And did I mention my AC is out AGAIN and I am not happy about it! Thanks for listening!
