Exploring Games Podcast

In finally getting back to the mic after the holidays, this episode is all about wrapping up 2013. I start off with a little bookkeeping (and announce the winner of the Bruges contest) and discuss (okay, brag) about all the games I got for Christmas. Then I spend quite a bit of time catching up on all of the games I’ve managed to play over the last 3 weeks or so. And finally, I round out the show by looking back over 2013 and giving my “awards” for the year, including the official Exploring Games Game of the Year!

In this episode, my friend Ken Coble and I sit down to discuss our experience with MACE, a semi-local gaming convention in Charlotte, NC. This was my 11th straight year going to MACE, Ken’s 3rd, and the convention’s 2nd year in Charlotte. While we do spend a little time talking some about the con itself and some of the people we met, the bulk of our comments here are about the games we played throughout the weekend, so hopefully this show will be useful even to those of you who will never have the chance to come to MACE…
