Boardgame Babylon Volume 103 – Q&A with Scott Alden, Lincoln Damerst, & Nikki Pontius – Part 2

Boardgame Babylon v103 – Q&A with Scott Alden, Lincoln Damerst, and Nikki Pontius – Part 2

Gamex 2013 was waaaaay back in May and somehow it took me until August to get this show out. Sorry about that but things at BGB have been pretty busy.

Anyway, this is the rest of the conversation we had when we were honored to host Scott Alden, the man behind Boardgamegeek.com and the convention for its fans, joined us as our Guest of Honor. And we were also lucky enough to lure GameNight Hosts and Producers Lincoln Damerst and Nikki Pontius over to talk about all kinds of game stuff. Listen in to the latter half of the conversation to hear more GameNight secrets (‘those aren’t bongs!’) and more about the hobby in general with these three welcome guests to BGB.

And we’re just about a month off from hosting Gateway 2013 Guest of Honor Vlaada Chvatil. I’m going to endeavor to release that show while we’re still at the convention. There may be one more show in the interim, too, if I can get my possible co-host together for it. To whet your appetite, I’m calling that show “Gamer Dad Epic Fail”.

BGB Volume 102 – Q&A with Scott Alden, Lincoln Damerst and Nikki Pontius

Gamex 2013 came and went earlier this summer. We were happy to host Scott Alden, the man behind Boardgamegeek.com and the convention for its fans, out to hang with us for the weekend. We played many games, enjoyed his company, and were happy to have Lincoln Damerst, one of the main BGG guys these days and host of the hit series of board game videos GameNight! and his lovely wife, Nikki Pontius, a Queen Games representative and producer of many a Kickstarter campaign, join us as well. We talk about many subjects from game cons to game libraries, Spiel, Kickstarters and a whole lot about GameNight!

This is part one of the conversation. Part two will come out next week when I return from San Diego ComicCon.

Boardgamegeek.con is November 20-24

For many of us who can’t make the trip to Germany each year, BGG.con is our way to get exposure to the latest board games to come out at Spiel. I’ll be there in Dallas this year, as I usually am, to join in the fun. We chat quite a lot about it on the show.

GameNight! from Boardgamegeektv

GameNight! is a great video series with some local L.A. gamers playing board games and then talking about them.

Queen Games

Nikki Pontius is a Queen Games rep responsible for a lot of the content of their Kickstarter campaigns and more. I personally adore the quality of Queen’s products and enjoy a lot of their games. Queen has been a generous supporter of Strategicon conventions and we are happy to have most of their titles in our library.
