1:54 Wrap up & Shout Outs
Another great episode- very much enjoying the parade of old hands from SPI. I really appreciated and got a big smile from your comment near the end of the episode when you talked about having more games than you could play, but still enjoying them by simply looking at them, reading the rules, examining the counters and maps... I totally agree. Playing is great, but even if you can't do that, the games are wonderful 'paper time machines'. Keep up the good work, and thanks!
