The Podcast of Love

 

 

This is the "suggestion box" for our upcoming ‘Podcast of Love’ episode, as discussed in show 5.5 and in show 6.0.  

Here’s what we are thinking: you –our listeners, our Podcast Nation— already know what Mark and Jeff love about gaming.  You already know about Mark's love of a really well-designed and well-rendered game board with plenty of room for all of the pieces, cards, etc.  You already know about Jeff’s love of Zombie games.  Now we want to know what YOU all love about gaming.  This is REALLY open-ended, and can be about ANYTHING you love about gaming.  It can be about anything that makes you recall some instance of games or gaming with fondness.  Your old gaming group…your favorite color of dice…your favorite brand of beef jerky.  Post a comment here to add your thoughts to ours, and we will discuss all of these submissions in a future show  --that would be the "Podcast of Love" episode!!!

Click on "comments" below to let us know what YOU love about gaming.  Thanks.

Show #6: Fillers, Part 1

Mark and Jeff talk about a totally indispensable part of any game collection: the humble "Filler Game". Filler games --which Mark and Jeff loosely define as games that can be played in less than an hour-- are great for keeping us entertained and/or occupied when we are waiting for the day's main event to start or for when the main event ends a little too soon for everyone's taste. Mark and Jeff cover four filler games in this episode. We will return to this topic in the future, so we are calling this 'Fillers part 1'.

Before our discussion of filler games, we ask for Listener ideas for our Podcast of Love, making its premier soon!
