It is time once again for the Party Game Cast to talk about the new crop of games being used by Match.com for their new run of Stir Gaming events.  This time we have decided to cover the games in small mini-sodes.  On this episode Bruce is joined by Rocki, Mike, Maureen and Chris to kick off this 5 show run of discussion by talking about the games that we have previously covered at other times on the show.  We are talking about Bananagrams which we literally covered for Match Games on episode #15 the last time we talked about Match Games.  The other game is Telestrations, which we covered on episode #2 (which is hard to listen to) and we will cover again on Episode #27, when we try to make up for how bad Episode #2 was recorded.

This is the intro, more to come about the new slate of match.com games.

On this 6th installment of the Party Gamecast LIVE @ the WBCs we talk to Keith Avallone of Plaay.com.  Plaay.com makes sports simulation games, which I (Bruce) find facinating.  I love knowing this is still a thing, and I know many people have no idea this genre is even our there (including Maureen, as you will hear).  This is certainly the kind of cool hidden treasure you will find at the WBCs.

Check out Keiths company at www.plaay.com

On this the 5th installment of the Party Gamecast LIVE @ the WBCs, we talk to Mark Smith the creator of a game called Blown Away.  This is a group game of aerodynamics that is played on an 8 tier game board.  Barring a kickstarter, this is the kind of game you might only see at a convention, and is the kind of really cool find you can make if you look at everything at your next convention.

This is the first installment of our coverage of the 2013 WBCs.  We decided to show up and see what the deal was with the World Boardgaming Championships.  You can find more details about them at http://www.boardgamers.org/#wbc. This episode is from the end of the day, and we give our impression about the convention and a preview of some of the interviews to come.

Once again a HUGE thanks to the WBC for letting us set up in their open gaming room and a huge thanks to everyone who came by, talked to us, and allowed us to interview them.  We think it makes for some fun and interesting listening.

Remember there are more episodes to come, this is just the first.
