This is a Bonus Episode which is fancy talk for "The dogs ate the shownotes so we can't do our normal episode so we totally wung this".

Is wung a word? Winged?

In this episode we discuss Gaming at Conventions. Well, that and a LOT of just banter. (This is what we're like when we are just hanging out but this time happened to have a mic capturing it all. And only Josh had been drinking! Also, the dog did actually chew through Meg's headphone cord so the whole experience was fairly surreal and much less organized.)


Just Announced!

The Gameologists will help organize JiffyCon Lowell- November 8, 2008 @ Middlesex Community College, Lowell, MA.

It was a good episode, but it was pretty obvious that you guys were winging it.

What was not obvious was that Josh was the only one drinking...  :fan

I guess my only problem with the winging it style is that there's more of a chance for multiple people to be talking at the same time and I tend to miss stuff when that happens.

Very much so.  This definitely won't be a habit- and it's why we are labeling it as a Bonus episode.  The point is more about getting to know us than to actually learn anything. 

But we wanted to at least do something and not release an episode this week.  So this is what came out.

That's pretty much what I figured, and since I was involved with quite a few of the stories (the Gen Con ones at least) I had a great time listening and reminiscing.

That was very amusing.  Josh, apparently, is hilarious when drunk.

That being said, I felt like I was listening to a tactic used in Family Guy, where they make a joke, it's funny, and they keep making it until it's not funny and then they keep going until it becomes funny again.  It worked very well for Josh this time, even if Family Guy is hit or miss.

Sigulated!

Awesome episode, I don't think it's possible for you guys to have a Worst Episode Ever.

It's the Best Episode Evar because I got mentioned heavily.

Thanks, Meg.

By the way, if you guys wanna review the ashcan, I won't consider that unfair. In fact I'd like it.

Me either.  I just know that Josh's comment at the very very end almost brought tears to Zeke and I's eyes.

The clam joke was a shaggy dog story, or an Andy Kaufman joke depending on your frame of reference.

I personally love this type of humor but it is one of the more arcane brands of comedy in existence.

I didn't think it was funny at first, eventually it got me.
