Episode 176 Lumin Sperling, Board Game Traveler

Lumin has taken the last year for a bit of early life retirement, exploring game conventions across the country and soon to be world with an emphasis on competitive gaming. He's a super nice guy who's here to make you jealous. Also, we announce a contest for two lucky winners that will receive either Steamrollers or Wendake from the lovely people over at Game Surplus. Here's a silly idea: Watch Joe's video reviews on youtube under the playlist The Sallen Coefficient. I dare you. They've gone up in editing quality. Joe's really hitting a stride. Or so he thinks.

Lumin- The Mind
Trent- Temporal Odyssey
Andy- Contest Announcement.

The Good the Board and the Con Man Episode 174 WBC Recap and Gen Con Preview

August 1st, 2018

Episode 174 The Re-release of Episode 173

In this episode, we copy and paste last week’s episode and release it again. We’re calling it a deluxe edition.

Either that or else this episode will have Geof Gambill and Joe talk about their experiences at the WBC 2018. Downwind from that, Joe gets on by himself to sarcastically preview games that will be at Gen Con 2018. You’ve been warned!
