This week's episode marks two monumental milestones. The first is recording and publishing our twentieth episode this week. The second being the first time we've had four guests in our virtual studio at one time; bringing the total of six people on our podcast at the same time!

Unfortunately, the down side is that the sound quality did suffer a little. I tried to clean it up as best as I could, but my sound editing skills are still a little on the rough side.

This is our first time having this many people on at one time and it took a little bit of learning how to manage and handle that many people and still try to keep our conversational format.

I think it shows that we had a lot of fun recording together even with the technical difficulties and look forward to other collaborative projects in the future with the guys and gals of Tattered Board!

We can barely contain our excitement this week. Entering our virtual studio is none other than Dice Hate Me's Chris Kirkman. He takes time out of his busy schedule of convention hopping and recovering from a nasty bug to sit down with us to chat about several different subjects including one of my favorite podcasts, his own The State of Games. Of course, we try to stay on topic as much as possible as we hit our normal Kickstarter roundup for our second segment.

The last segment of the podcast is a very informative comparison between the two Kickstarter campaigns for New Bedford. The first crowd funding attempt for it was cancelled as it struggled to find its footing. About six months later, the second campaign was more than an attempt. By the end of it, it had soared passed the $100,000 mark, quadrupling what it previously had done. We pick Chris's brain about the tweaks that were made and why he thought the second attempt was such a smashing success.

Games Mentioned:

Codenames, Stuff & Nonsense

Kickstarter Projects Mentioned:

Little Pig, Return To Castle Dicenstein, Latice, Greatest of All Mountains, Spirit Island, Avalanche at Yeti Mountain
