I say 'nerd' as a term of endearment because I've been enjoying listening to Alex's trip to GenCon. Now everyone gets to listen to the group's trip home on the long drive from Indianapolis, IN to Westchester, NY. Alex and co. recap their experiences at GenCon and generally enjoy themselves on their long trip home.

Note from the editing room: both car cast 1 and 2 have been edited into one episode. There is a bit of music that marks the break between recordings. I'm sure you won't notice the break at all since I'm such a smooth editor (that's a joke).

Finally, if you wish to donate to encourage me to play board games for 24 hours straight October 25, Who, What, Why? has joined Flip the Table's team Bance at Extra-Life.org. Please click this link to my profile if you wish to donate and if not, please join us in spirit and play some games on Octboer 25. Thank you for listening.

Alex sits down with Herb and Jen from Game and a Curry to breakdown Saturday at the con. They talk about games they have played, meeting people from different podcasts and game publishers, and some of the scheduling strategies they used while at the con. I do not need to sit and weep tonight as I post this because GenCon is over. We are all back here on the East Coast, but I'll never have those memories... weep, weep. 

Lastly, Alex points out that Tom Vasel is tall. I can confirm this after seeing Alex's photo with him.

We have two more GenCon episodes that will be released in September when I have more space on my Libsyn account.

 

Postscript: I have joined Flip The Table's Team Bance for October 25th's Extra Life game-a-thon. My venue of choice will most likely be the game store right near my house. My plan is to play games for the entire 24 hours. If you wish to make a donation, please click on the link. Extra Life is a group of gamers who play games to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network, a network of children's hospitals that help children in need of life-saving medical treatments and such. I am playing for Maria Fareri's Children Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. Currently, I have raised 0 dollars, but that will change soon.

Alex sits down with Herb and Jen from Game and a Curry to breakdown Friday at the con. They talk about games they have played, games they are excited for, and food they have enjoyed. I sit in NY weeping for all these amazing times I am missing. I hope you enjoy Alex's recap.

The English nerd in me is excited by Alex's reference to Godot, a play I am wildly fond of.

In this bonus episode we discussed Alex's impending trip to the mother of all conventions in America, GenCon. Alex talks about some of the games he is excited to preview. I talk about what games I hope he buys me when he is there (because I'm such a super guy), and we discuss some games we played the night of the recording. This episode was recorded on August 12th.

If you cannot attend GenCon this year, please parttake in #GenCant2014 on Twitter or Instagram. It is the convention for those who were left behind.
