Discussing tabletop and related gaming and the Irish gaming scene so you don't have to

Mar 31, 2015

This week's hosts:  Liam, Humbug, Eoin and Icecream

Special Guests: Girls Get Gaming

Before we get stuck into the million review episodes that are required after the Con Crush, let us all sit back and enjoy Part 2 of our interview with Irish gaming commentators Girls Get Gaming. This week, we further discuss how social media can be used to enrich the tabletop gaming and convention scene.

Show notes:

  • 2.06: Don't be ridiculous, Humbug, that number is never going to come up again.
  • 2.33: You heard it here first, folks! Eoin Burke believes we should round women up! He said more after that, but I wasn't listening. Was he suggesting mandatory sterilisation? More at 9.
  • 3.54: Warhorn
  • 4.24: We need to leverage the synergies in our core competencies, inspiring a snowballing community-driven viral campaign in key millennial demographics.
  • 4.51: “That sounds dreadful to me. I hate people; I don't want to debate them anonymously on twitter!”
  • 7.02: If you ever want to hear the Pyjama Porn story, ask me in person.
  • 11.27: I don't like Monopoly. It was designed bad on purpose.
  • 13.26: This was a real thing! Know your enemy, people.
  • 14.15: Mind how you go.
  • 16.41: Quote of the Episode: “'Don't expose yourself to other people' is a widely-accepted standard for society in general”
  • 17.56: Yeah, the Jane Austen thing lead to at least one arrest for death and/or rape threats. Which, sadly, has become sort of standard for social networking. Not the arrest part; that's still pretty rare. It's death/rape threats which have become commonplace.
  • 19.48: The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all. - H. L. Mencken
  • 21.07: AWARD WINNING
  • 23.45: Man, I'm looking forward to XCon as well, it's going to be sweet. Or maybe Liam was saying ex-con, which would be less a guarantee of a good time. Although that largely depends on a) your definition of a good time and b) what they went to prison for in the first place.
  • 26.18: I was wrong! [citation needed]
  • 28.13: It's @adventuringpty – and if you've been listening to the closing scroll for the last four weeks, you'll notice that we have indeed updated it to include that information!
