GE39: 5 Reasons to Play Prison Architect

Prison Architect is a fun and challenging game.  It is currently in Alpha but is a stable and enjoyable game for Windows and Mac OSX. Jonathan apologizes in this episode for confusion he caused last time.  The Ray Harryhausen episode was mistakenly referred to as Episode 39.  It is actually episode 38.  This Prison Architect episode is #39.  Please accept our apologies.   http://media.blubrry.com/wargamingrecon/p/wargamingforums.com/podcasts/GeeksExplicitly/GE39.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download About Jonathan J.

Convention Report:  Pax 2011 Games

Every time I go to a Con there’s one thing I want to do more than anything else, I really want to experience some role playing games that I’ve never played before. It’s a top priority.

About Nick Nundahl

I'm a wild haired demi-viking living on the East Coast United States. I've run games in countless systems and tanked more game nights than I've ever run successfully, but hopefully I learned a lot in the process and I'd like to pass that on. Follow me on Twitter.

Androminion is Dominion vs 2 AI players for your Android phone, and it's awesome

Androminion. If you love Dominion, this will have you cuddling your Android phone and cooing to it softly.

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

Mount & Blade: Fire and Sword Preview
