TGT 080: Groking Games

This week we’re talking about Groking Games. In other words the ability to intuitively understand games of various types. How does it affect the overall enjoyment of the game and what can we do to help people become better grokers? No promises, but we try and figure it out.

But first, announcements, Kickstarters, and some Feedback. We have our Charterstone Giveaway winners, Chris backed Dice Throne Season 2 on Kickstarter, and we get a cool offer from Sam to compile statistics on listener 10×10 challenges. Check out that thread here https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1940127/inputfeedback-ep-79-10×10-challenge

Oh, and go vote for us for the Board Game Geek Awards: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgames/awards

SC 011: Rocky Mountain Gaming Vacation

In this side chat I talk with Daniel Shepard about a little convention in Park City, Utah that he volunteers for. It sounds awesome and can double as a whole family vacation even if the whole family isn’t as into gaming as you are.
