The State of Games, Ep. 96 – The One About BGGCon 2015

stateofgameslogonewAs the year winds to a close, we focus on the last of the big shows – BGGCon, in Dallas, TX. Every hardcore gamer that has a forum handle in the hobby shows up for this particular convention, which always makes for an interesting time. This go-round, the whole core DHMG crew was here and Darrell, TC, and myself got a chance to experience the show together. This is our story. Dun Dun!

    Thanks for the shout out, fellows! It was great to see you guys at the convention. Darrell, thanks for being so generous. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. (Chris, you really could learn a thing or two from this guy.)

    As TC mentioned, he’s appearing on our podcast which was just published at so go have a listen to a fun-filled interview with him. There’s a shout out of sorts to you who knows what he did, “Meddlesome” Darrell, and mention of you, “Crazy” Chris, in the interview. Who knows, maybe next year we’ll be asking one of you guys to sit across the mic from us. Happy holidays, fellows! See you next year!
