The State of Games, Ep. 90 – The One About GenCon 2015

Let me tell you, organizing a podcast with four incredibly busy hosts that live in four different states is often crazy difficult; throw in some sickness a week after a major convention and you’ve got mission near-impossible. Still, with so much to talk about from the massive GenCon 2015, the show must go on. Read More  Read More

The State of Games, Ep. 88 – The One About Do-Overs

If there’s one thing we like to do on The State of Games, it’s be timely, and we aim to please once again.

The State of Games, Ep. 87 – The One About Growing New Gamers

One of the many benefits of our recent survey was to ask listeners what they’d really like for us to talk about, and plenty of you requested tips for getting new gamers into the hobby. We’ve responded with a great episode on how experienced gamers can best evangelize to those new gamers, either in your Friendly Local Game Store, or amongst your less-experienced friends and family. Hopefully you’ll all find this guide to growing new gamers helpful as we all work to build upon this great hobby! Read More  Read More

The State of Games, Ep. 86: The One About Origins 2015

For the past four years, I’ve had the pleasure of hosting a booth for Dice Hate Me Games at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio. During that time I’ve learned a lot, met many wonderful people, and introduced even more to the joys and wonders of DHMG titles. It’s a wonderful convention in which I can both run a booth and still have time to talk to convention-goers, fans, designers and publishers. 2015 was a great year at Origins, and I hope to be able to do the same for many years to come!

The State of Games, Ep. 85: The One About Gaming Potpourri

We typically like to keep our format pretty consistent on The State of Games, but from time to time we have so much to talk about that we just have to throw convention out the window. Speaking of conventions, we give a good overview of what to expect in booth #703 at Origins Game Fair, so give this a listen and we hope to see all of you in Columbus, Ohio from June 3-7! Be there or be square. Read More  Read More

The State of Games, Ep. 80: The One About Some Business & Baseball

To everything, turn, turn turn, there is a season, turn, turn, turn… and a time for every podcast to make alterations. This podcast is all about those changes that can occur over the life of an entity, whether it be personal, business, social, or all three.

The State of Games, Episode 75: The One About BGGCon 2014

Conventions are our bread and butter. These gatherings of geeks allow us to not only game and experience things that might pass us by a home, but also allow us to meet and greet an amazing variety of gaming personalities who all share in a similar passion. BGGCon is an amazing thing – a con dedicated solely to those of us who pepper our lives with board games and wish to share that experience with others. It’s a unique venue, and we’re here to share our experiences with all of you, Dear Listeners. Read More  Read More

The State of Games, Episode 74 – The One About Salt and Sea

“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off – then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.” – Herman Melville, Moby Dick Read More  Read More

The State of Games, Episode 70 – The One About To Be Named Later

Sometimes on the podcast we talk about so many different things that it’s nearly impossible to describe it all with one simple title. This is one of those times. This one was almost called The One About More Naked People and Naked Games but we figured no on would know what we were talking about. No matter the name, though, we have a great time discussing prototypes and strippers. This podcast is a bit like a box of chocolates on most days. Enjoy! Read More  Read More
