The official topic is Gaming Parties- how to throw your own gaming themed party- birthdays, holidays, “because it’s Saturday” etc. Play role-playing games, tabletop games and board games for fun and profit! Well, fun at least.

Let us know if you’re coming! Comment here, RSPV on our Facebook event page, or on UStream or on our boards in THIS thread.

Part 2: Post-Recording!

Here’s the show, completely unedited and as heard by the 31 members in our chatroom!  Warning- we are all over the place and it won’t offend us if you don’t listen to it!  This is complete total bonus and has zero gaming advice.  We will do some of these periodically for those interested in our personalities, but know that if you tune in for gaming content, just skip these ones.

We listed some of our favorite podcasts in this show based on a question from the chatroom.  They are:
