GenCon 2012: Pre-Con Wishes and Anticipations – Ep68

If you see these guys at Gen Con, come up and say hi. Then kick the guy on the right in the nuts.

This year marks the 45th anniversary of our favorite destination, Gen Con. The annual gaming convention is the hallmark of our summer because we, and thousands of our kind, converge on Indianapolis for four days of gaming and basking in our chosen sub-cultural indulgences.


This year is also special for us because of a few personal things. This will be Shawn and Greg’s first GenCon. With them going, it will also be the first time the entire crew will be there at once (including Aarron, Deuce and our new friend Nathan).


We are looking forward to the festivities and meeting anyone who actually listens to us. Hope to see you there.

nOOb Gamer Outreach Program – Ep67

nOOb Gamer, huh? It’s only a matter of time before your basement looks like this.

A listener asked us to give some insight on getting into the hobby of tabletop role playing games. Being so far removed from this, we are probably not the best people to ask advice from, but he did so we do what we do best… talk.


If you have some input on this, leave a comment here, via email or on our Facebook page.


Jeff Casavant, I hope we answer your question and thank you so much for the topic idea.

Editor’s Note:

As almost none of you noticed, the format of the line notes has changed. Since only Karen from Monkey in the Cage noticed the Easter Egg placed in last week’s episode notes (thank you Karen, you made my week), it was determined that energy used for detailed line notes would be best placed elsewhere. –Eric
