The bit of the intro where the ‘top’ of the letter ‘T’s falls onto the bottom parts still sounds like someone eating a pringle.

Its warren, isn’t it.

Try to check out Minuteman Miniatures. They scan your head and put it on a miniature. Could be fun to torment warren with it.

A minor request. Hopefully the crew will be able to visit and report on some great but less known companies and vendors that are in GenCon. Don’t me wrong, I love getting info from the old standards, but how about some lesser know companies and games. For example, Restoration Games or Holy Grail Games which has a demo of Rallyman GT running in their booth. While I saw the news post about Tiny Epic Mechs, Gamelyn is showing off the just release Tiny Epic Zombies — a game I believe would make a great play through.

Okay, well know, but Steve Jackson Games has THE FANTASY TRIP RPG in the booth. This is a reboot from a 40yr old RPG he first had written he first started in designing games. It is going gang buster on KS. I believe this needs to reported on.

Anyone else have audio issues when playing the videos on a iPhone? Tabletop intro sounds fine but when the actual GenCon footage plays the sound stops?
