This week we're talking about convention gaming.  What should you consider when running a game and what should you expect when playing a game. But first, a brief announcement segment (where Chris makes a mistake and says Capricon is this weekend when it's really next weekend Feb 15-18)  followed by a  long Kickstarter segment and finally some feedback.

In this side chat I talk with Daniel Shepard about a little convention in Park City, Utah that he volunteers for.  It sounds awesome and can double as a whole family vacation even if the whole family isn’t as into gaming as you are.

This week we're talking about the gaming jargon and vocabulary we can tend to take for granted when talking to new players.  Or as a new player the terms that can confuse us and make it harder to really get into the hobby. But first after our normal news and announcements, Chris has a new "formal" Kickstarter segment.  We then get into feedback, and a quick question from Jason on gaming snobbery.

This week we talk about those people that get a little to emotional during the game.  Those that throw pieces or get mad at friends in real life for making in game decisions. But first we make a huge announcement (huge to us anyway) - and no, it's not that Kitty's given birth yet, but that's coming soon.  After this announcement, Chris talks about Tiny Epic Zombies, his Kickstarter of the week and get to some feedback from our last episode. Links we've promised...

This week we sloooooow things down and really take a deep look at analysis paralysis and how we can better understand AP players and make games more enjoyable for both sides. But before we get to that, we get a lot of feedback from our last show and hear about some of our listener's favorite games of 2017.  We also talk about EverCon and get in a quick question about why Tom Vasel hates miniatures (spoiler alert, he doesn't).

This week we're looking back at the year at some of our favorite new games.  But first Chris talks about EverCon and CapriCon, two conventions we'll be at in the near future.  He also has two new Kickstarters he's backed and then we get into some feedback on past episodes.

This week we start off talking about a couple upcoming conventions we'll be at.  Chris backs the 2nd least expensive game yet  on Kickstarter (Postcard Dungeon) and we then read some feedback from past episodes (including a gummy candy commercial!). Then we start talking about dice games (thanks Christy for the outline) and realize quickly that this topic is too big for just one episode.  We do what we can in the time we have and then plan several more episodes in the near future on more specific topics.

This week we start out by announcing the winner to our current giveaway, talk a bit about our next giveaway, Chris backs a Tank game on Kickstarter, we get some nice feedback, a quick question, and then on to the topic... Semi Co-Op games!  We try and define them, grasp for some examples, and even talk a bit theoretically about what works and doesn't work within this niche category.

This week we start with our thoughts on the new Patreon changes, a recap of Dice Tower Cruise, our current contest to give away Pandemic Legacy Season 2, and a D&D 5e Kickstarter Chris has backed.
