Episode 27 – Get Your Con On! DragonCon and PAX Prime 2012 Lifestyle Embassy

This week, Rhonda and I talk about two cons we attended on opposite sides of the country on the same weekend. Rhonda reports on her three favorite panels from DragonCon (one with a very special last minute guest appearance!) and I talk about my top three games I played at PAX Prime.

Listen in for all the details and look for our galleries coming soon!

A brief note about the episode number. We started getting confused having separate numbers for the shorts and we figured you might be confused, too. So we added them together and started from there. Welcome to episode 27.

Game on!

Regina and Rhonda

* As I was playing the beta for FireFall last night (Saturday, 9/8/12), the CEO from Red 5 Studios jumped online and started chatting with everyone in general chat. Apparently, this is something that happens on a regular basis since he was greeted with a chorus of “Hi! How are you?” from many of the regulars. He made comments on server issues and upcoming patches but mostly enjoyed some banter with everyone online. I was in awe and seriously impressed by his engagement in the community. Kudos to Red 5.

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
