Patrick Perkins and I are at Red Castle Games in Portland Oregon and I re-learn some Magic the Gathering! Warning: You’re listening to us chat about this and other things while we play. And… I just realized that he let me win the first game! heh! It's a dork expedition to a game store with all the audio hijinks that that involves. I hope you enjoy.

Patrick made me a green forest deck (dork forest, get it?) which has green mana
(mana is the “money” or “energy” that allows you to play any other card). He is playing a Red deck (so he would need red mana to play his spells).

Japanese Pork Kenti? I will NOT be googling it. You do it.

Moulder Card (green/instant) (destroy target artifact by spending as much mana as it cost for him to “cast that spell” and then you GAIN that much in player life)

Jesse Schell and Andy Ashcraft and I are at the Game Designer Conference . Jesse teaches game design at Carnegie Mellon, has his own company, and has great dork cred in the world of other hobbies: Harmonica, juggling. Andy Ashcraft and he talk for real about games… I ask for a lot of clarification. It’s a good one. Enjoy!

Do you feel like his name is familiar? He fixes the audio every show! Patrick Brady is part of a great production company in NYC and we dork out about audio. You will notice he sounds GREAT. But we quickly go into animation forever. Patrick is over prepared and it’s fantastic. Prepare to learn a LOT about the history of animation. We are in NYC and we talk Hari’s subway woes briefly. I encouraged Patrick to add his own notes of animation you should DEFINITELY know about!! They are the bonus content as a pdf. Enjoy. It’s perfect podcasting quite honestly.

Fun TDF game? How many times does my phone go off? (ring and text).
