Whoops. Did you know that today is not, in fact, Tuesday? It is Wednesday? And yesterday was Tuesday? That's apparently news to me, since that's what I'd been operating under so far. Just one of those weeks, I suppose. Too much turkey over the weekend, I guess. Anyway, since it's... uh, past Tuesday, let's make this week go by even just a bit more quickly with some gaming podcasts. This week on the dial we have:
In which the bard asks: “Those horns on your head, are they from anyone I know?”

Today the Founders talk about a bunch of games they've been playing, Don and Jamie jump into a feature review of It's a Wonderful World from designer Frédéric Guérard, Tony T wows the crowd with the greatest tabletop gaming news segment in the known universe and finally, the gang takes a look at 5 game designers including Ryan Laukat, Uwe Rosenberg, Corey Konieczka, Martin Wallace and Stefan Feld and discusses their body of work.

Imperial Steam from Capstone is going to take many plays before we get to the bones of the game. There is so much stuffing in this bird, we have plenty of leftovers.
Brian Boru: High King os Scotland is going to win a Squirrely. Calling it now. This was the Turducken at Thanksgiving. Each layer provided a different taste of strategy. Amazing game for us.
Next episode is the 9th Anniversary show. Yeap, nine years of background noise.
