Our Ten Commandments series returns with the Fourth Commandment: “Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.” Before we get to that, however, we have a bit of business to go over and a bit of catching up to do. We spend a little time discussing our Patreon support, since we haven’t updated listeners on that in a while. Grant’s learning Korean, and blogged about that a bit; and Jenny needs to issue a correction regarding the Battletech game she described in the previous episode. After all that’s out of the way, though, we tackle a big question from Patreon supporter Richard, who asks us about our favorite RPG characters.
All that taken care of, we dive headfirst int […]
In this episode – Daniel and I start off talking about the games we’ve been playing. This time it includes Daniel sharing stories about playing Carcassonne with his kids. And then I talk briefly about Guild Ball with Daniel, since … Continue reading → Continue reading
I have grown tired as of late. So tired that I find it challenging to write this description in a way that does justice to what I’m talking about in this tale, without just kicking a hornets’ nest that does more to prove my assertion than it does stir up … Continue reading
It’s a special bonus episode this week, as Jenny and Peter recap their Fear the Con experiences! Peter also recently wrote about his very emotional slot 6 game, and if you haven’t read that yet, you really should. 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!
Also, our apologies for any audio issues in this episode; this was recorded on a single microphone designed for one person, so there was a lot of handing the mic back and forth. (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!)
Between your hosts either getting knock-out sick or being scheduled to the hilt, we had to come up with an alternate plan for this newest episode of Game Store Prophets. So while I do tell you about the games I’ve … Continue reading → Continue reading
When I was a kid – I wore out the VHS tape I had of an animated movie called The Flight of Dragons. One of the characters in the story was a young, immature house dragon by the name of Gorbash. When the prophesied hero from the world of men … Continue reading
Grant, Peter, and Jenny discuss playing characters who are much better—or much worse—at things than you yourself are! This topic was selected by our Patreon backers, whom we’re very grateful for and who bring you this show every other week. First, though, we spend some time discussing Fear the Con X (which was last weekend, and which Peter and Jenny will run down next episode.) We also briefly discuss Overwatch and Dead Cells. 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!
Mentioned in this episode:
Just a few short weeks ago I was hanging out with folks in Whippany, New Jersey to talk about tabletop gaming and it’s powerful place in ministry contexts. My topic was what I referred to as ‘incarnational gaming’ – aka … Continue reading → Continue reading
Coming off of not one, but two major events – GameChurch’s Academy East conference and the third annual Tavern Con – Daniel and I sit down to talk about some things. Daniel talks about playing Carrotia with his kids, and seeing … Continue reading → Continue reading
Anytime folks in the Christian community want to talk about culture, and how to harness culture to share and explore God – they cite Mars Hill. A quick google search will show you sermons, videos, and a cavalcade of organizations that claim the name of that rock in Greece. But … Continue reading
