Bonus Episode 10 – Fear the Con X Review

It’s a special bonus episode this week, as Jenny and Peter recap their Fear the Con experiences!

Special thanks to everyone involved in planning and producing Fear the Con; everyone we gamed with; and everyone who helped with the charity drive for Pat this year!

(On the other hand, this was recorded on Jenny’s new audio equipment, so look forward to a better sound from her on future episodes!)

We answer a question about wargaming from Patreon backer Kevin, and then get down to business—which includes a lengthy rant from Grant, and a surprising amount of bickering!
