The first day of the week is over. And while there's still a long way to go, each day gets us a little closer. Step by step, we climb the mountain.
But when you're not listening to that, you can listen to some gaming podcasts.
This week on the dial we've got: Game Classy Episode 169: Wrath of Gen Con 2018; Man Battlestations Podcast Episode 33; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 166: the best 4 days in gaming!; Drive Thru FM Episode 17: Gen Con 2018 Report; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 128: GenCon 2018 & Petrichor; The Cardboard Herald Episode 92: In which Emma Larkins of #gamedesigndaily shares the hot new jam by Kitten Insect Clone; Guild Ball Tonight Episode 83: Sailing the Seas of Cheese; Lords of the Dungeon Episode 18: Betrayal in the Party and Creating Ambiance in your Sessions; and Chance of Gaming Episode 113a GenCon.

Greg and Andy are back with Episode 33 of the MBS podcast! This month, our hosts return to the Naval Game Mechanics topic to discuss Critical Hits and their role in Naval Games. Who doesn’t like a good, old-fashioned Magazine Explosion now and then? Later, they do a review of the Solitare/Co-op board game Nemo’s War by Victory Point Games, which is based on the Jules Verne novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
