Wooden Cubes & Iron Soldiers: “Origins, Gencon, BGG.CON, Essen, and ConsimWorld Expo!” Episode 7
“Origins, Gencon, BGG.CON, Essen, and ConsimWorld Expo!”
Welcome back for our seventh episode of Wooden Cubes & Iron Soldiers!
In this episode we spend the first two hours covering a wide variety of games and topics, discussing everything from what makes a game “gamey”, to Wil Wheaton, TableTop, and some of the pitfalls and trappings of being a board game reviewer. For the final six hours (just kidding)… In the last 45 minutes we cover a bunch of information about the upcoming convention season. I think we covered just about every large gaming convention in existence in this episode.
During the show we make mention of a couple of Youtube Video series. For any listeners that want to check them out, here are some links.
