Welcome to a mega-sized, special episode all in celebration of International Tabletop Day!
In the interest of full disclosure, Andrew (as a representative of For All Intents and Purposes) will be hosting, along with Luke Turpeinen and Nicole Jekich (from AcrossTheBoardGames.net), an event at the Raygun Lounge in Seattle, Washington at 12pm on Saturday, 11 April for International Tabletop Day. A whole host of games will be there and prizes (including a signed & sketched copy of the Long John preview book!). Be there (or see if there are any events in your area)!
Week in Geek: Andrew plays Cities: Skylines a spiritual (and functional) successor to Sim City, while Dan watches another old movie that was a pleasant surprise, Mad Max.
AcrossTheBoardGames.Net #1: Andrew discusses with previous guests, Luke and Nicole, about how to start your own game day event.
Jonathan Adler & Ethics in Gaming: Andrew sits down with Jonathan Adler (aka The King of the Nerds) and discusses how people play games, and how its not always necessarily done in the interest of winning, and what this type of gameplay says about the players.
Question of the Geek:
