Episode 2 is now out, where I discuss the game Combat! You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, or you can listen to the episode here.
I have a page up for the podcast on Facebook, which you can like here. Please? I also now have a Twitter account for the podcast (which I didn’t have when I recorded this week’s episode), I think that actually may be an easier way to disseminate information than the blog or Facebook, but I will keep all three updated. You can follow me at Twitter here.
After recording the Combat episode, I came to the conclusion that it would be better for me to do two games an episode, unless it’s a really big game. I will do that starting next week. The game I announced on the podcast is Air-Sea Battle, but I will also do Star Ship. So if you have any stories or memories about either of these games that you would like to share with the class, please send them along to me right here.
