The State of Games, Ep. 140: The One About Getting in the Spirit

stateofgameslogonewI LOVE HALLOWEEN. I almost celebrate Halloween more than I celebrate Christmas. Which is why it’s a bit of a shock that we haven’t done more Halloween-centric State of Games in the past few years. Well, all that obviously needed to change, so we drafted a little help from Keith Ferguson to really dig into the spirit of the holiday. I’ll just say that this is in my top 5 episodes that we’ve ever done; I hope you all have as much fun listening to it as we did recording it.

    Excellent use of guerilla marketing to get your game noticed, Keith. Well done! The Power Grid retheme idea had me laughing. I also enjoyed TC’s wordplay idea for Ma-Lignum. That was a funny thought exercise to celebrate Halloween.
