You've heard about it since January...You've wondered when it would become a reality...Epic in scale...and now it's HERE!  It's the Podcast of Love. Since this is a "whole-number episode", we start off by investigating a Dusty Old Box.

In the show's main segment, it's the Podcast of Love. We talk about what some of you --our beloved listeners, our Podcast Nation-- truly LOVE about the hobby of gaming. We read out several blog postings and emails that we've received on this topic, and comment on each of them.

In a second segment (actually a mini-segment), Mark talks about a brand-new release from Gamewright: Forbidden Island, which we'll talk about again in the upcoming session report, Show 8.5.

Lastly, we put out another invitation to you all to participate in our Gameopolis Coffee Mug Challenge, which we first rolled-out in Show 7.5. We play samples of eight (not nine) different sounds from the beeping, buzzing, whirring 1980s boardgame Dark Tower. Write into with your guesses on the identities of the eight Dark Tower sounds. Writing in will get your name/email address into our raffle; getting all eight answers correct will get your name entered three times!!! Five lucky listeners will be drawn during Show 9.0, each of whom will receive an awesome Gameopolis Coffee Mug!!!
