First I want to apologize for the lateness of the of this week's
podcast. I know its only a day late, but I still hate being late
Second, I want to apologize for the reason its late. My mic
apparently started crapping out part way through the episode and
didn't realize it until post production. I spent a lot of time
trying to bandage up this episode with my level one editing skills
and I'm afraid it shows. The quality isn't up to its usual quality.
(Not saying the regular quality of my editing is wonderfully great!
=)) So hopefully the content makes up for the lackluster audio
As soon as this is posted I'm hitting up Amazon to pick me up a
new mic setup. Its been on my list, but wanted to upgrade my
computer first to make editing a lot less painful.
So, on with the show notes!
We have a major announcement at the end of the podcast. We are
teaming up with Artem Safarov for our first giveaway!! Here's the
to announce my co-host Jason Washburn of Talon Strikes and I's
first giveaway will be during the weekend of GenCant 2015! For
those not in the know, GenCant is the Unofficial Unconventional
Convention that coincides with Gen Con. This will be during the
weekend of July 30th - August 2nd. BUT! Doesn't mean you can't
start preparing for it now!
We are not
alone in this endeavor. We've called on a couple of friends of the
podcast to help us make this thing as big as possible. But, we will
also need your help in doing so!
You see, we
are in cahoots with, none other, than board game reviewer and
designer Artem Safarov of Altema Games!
Art has a
project on Altema's website called Board Game Habitat. I'll just
let him explain it:
of this project is to have fun and find “natural habitats” for our
favourite board games. It is meant as a collaborative project that
many people can contribute to. The rules are simple – place a board
game box in a setting that fits the theme of the board game and
snap away! All quality images will be posted here with the credit
given to the creator.
not all who we're teaming up with for our first giveaway! The
friendly folks at Cloud Cap Games of Portland, Oregon also are
joining in on the action as they are the official sponsor of this

Cap Games were nice enough to donate, not one, not two,
but THREE Board Games as giveaway prizes!
