I'm sure there are some other goofs in there somewhere. Let us know if (when?) you find one!

The audio in the Gen Con Australia interview is really poor. We were right next the the video game demos and those booths had bass beats cranked up. Grr! Sorry if you were blasted out by them.

Other than the one listener promo, I can't think of any instances of profanity in this particular episode. Our show doesn't ever include alot of profanity and I don't see that changing. That said, we're not interested in self-censorship either. That means you may have to excuse the occasional "bad" word. The minute we become self conscious about what we say or how we say it, I think we lose one of the show's strong points: we're just two regular guys having a regular conversation about games.

Based on the show's merits or demerits, we'll leave it to you to decide whether it is safe for you to listen with your kids.

Spiel on!


Lots of good info in here. I like that you hit the smaller companies to see what they had to offer. I'd never heard of Table Star Games before, but their HeroCard system sounds great. So much so that I put in an order for the entire Shogun set today. Unfortunately I couldn't do so from Time Well Spent, as they don't carry them, and I was adding them to an order that I need before I go out of town next week. Great pair of episodes, and look forward to the "regular" schedule making a return.
