The Boardgaming Roundtable
Well, I guess that's what we're calling it... thanks to the hard work of Doug Garrett & the kind support of Aldie (of BGG fame), we've starting recording a monthly roundtable discussion about games & gaming. (The first of these was actually recorded back in March - you can read more about it here.) This time around, the four of us (Doug & his lovely wife, Shelley + Ward Batty + me!) discuss Carcassonne. Amidst some spirited interaction about the relative values of the expansions & stand-alone games is some good stuff... and I actually manage to get through the podcast with only one goofy Baptist reference to potlucks as a religious experience. (We were actually able to record this together at Gulf Games on Saturday morning, which was nice.) If you'd like to listen to it, you can find it at Garret's Games & Geekiness... and soon at BoardGameSpeak (a part of BoardGameGeek). You can also subscribe to either of these podcasts at iTunes. The plan is for us to record (via the magic of Skype) one of these each month... and that Derk & Aldie will be involved in some way on a semi-regular basis. Of course, we're open to topic suggestions, comments, criticisms, and blatant attempts at payola. (OK, the last one is not true.) Enjoy!
