Episode 27: As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly

So as far as the best comedy TV shows go, Marty and I agree that one of the best was WKRP in Cincinnati and the Thanksgiving episode ranks up there as one of the funniest shows ever done. So in  honor of that show, we use one of the great lines to title our episode. If you have never seen that episode, listen to our show and then go watch that episode, you will thank us.

So what do we have for you in this episode, it goes something like this:
MACE Con discussion - 0:00
Eldritch Horror thoughts - 2:45
War College with Todd and Alex - 21:06
At the Table: Biggest Turkey Game - 46:40

Enjoy the show and be sure to send us your At the Table for December, what game are you looking for under the tree.

MACE 2013 Video: Avery, Burke, and McClung Oh my...

We have entered into the world of video again and Marty has put out on Youtube video of our adventures at the local con called MACE. It was a great weekend of gaming and meeting people. We spoke with area designers and fellow podcasters during the weekend. We were lucky enough to get Steve Avery and Robert Burke on film to talk about their current games. Robert McClung, who has been on our podcast talking about Con organization, also took time from his busy schedule of running the event and shared with us the success of MACE over the weekend. MACE grew in attendance for it second year in Charlotte by almost 40%. The hotel was at capacity and I am sure the wedding reception that was near our event enjoyed having the various cosplayers about. We had a great time running two Eldritch Horror demos this weekend and Marty got some video of the board for you to view. You will also see Steve Avery playing Nothing Personal with convention goers and "letting" someone else win so that they could really enjoy the game.

We apologize for the quality of the recording, they were setting up the Charity Auction when we did our filming and it was a bit noisy behind us. We also did not anticipate doing any filming of interviews, but we grabbed the brass ring when it presented itself. Head over to YouTube to check it out

Episode 26: Marty's Other Brilliant Idea

This episode is unlike any other episode we have done. Basically, Marty had an idea that we should play a game and then discuss our strategy while recording. I will support any idea that allows me to play a game. So, Todd (who you have heard many times on the show) and Alex (Mr Game Club) came over to Marty's to play Lords of Waterdeep and it only took three months to schedule. We play the game and then record a show on how it went. Man, the birds were very loud that night.

There aren't many segments to this show, so I am going to forgo the usual times for the segments but I do want to point out an important announcement from The Geek All Stars about their Charity event around the 4:15 mark of the show. You can find out more information at the website.

Enjoy the show
