Our convention year here in Southern California ends with Strategicon’s Gateway 2013 over the Labor Day Weekend. This year, we had another great guest to enjoy at this show. Vlaada Chvatil, one of the most innovative and varied designers of the last two decades, was kind enough to join us from the Czech Republic. He was a wonderful, popular guest whose ludography was widely played at the show – from Through The Ages to Galaxy Trucker, Space Alert, Dungeon Lords, Mage Knight and his new title, Tash-Kalar, we had a great turnout here to celebrate Vlaada’s games. He also joined me for a Q&A session, which we recorded for the podcast. We hope you enjoy it!
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”.
Aldie recently added a geeklist on Boardgamegeek.com with links to all of their episodes. You can find all the shows you might have missed in one place here.
