Social Media Gaming – Ep171

Something we know a little about is the next wave of tabletop gaming, social media gaming. It is using social media to make connections, find games or even play the games themselves. We asked our friend Kevin to join us to help elaborate on this and share his experience with it.

Halflings – Ep170

Forever, it seems, that one of the distinctly fantasy tropes was the Halfling (or Hobbit). However, lately, these seemingly innocuous beings are beginning to get a little love in other genres. We cannot be more pleased. Halflings are one of our absolute favorites.

Intolerance – Ep169

There is an underlying virus in our sub-culture called intolerance. Whether it is gamers against gamers over the “right way to play” the games themselves, Marvel versus DC, Story gamers versus Sim-gamers or “authentic” nerds versus “fake geek girls”, the list goes on and on. The bullied have become the bullies and enough is enough?
