Episode 34 – Brains and Games: Jodi Black and Family Play Embassy

This week we present to you another fabulous gaming family. We talk with Jodi Black from Beautiful Brains Books and Games and her two daughters, Bethany and Trinity.

Listen to hear the girls talk about DMing their first games (at nine, yes 9! years old!) and Jodi talk about the important role gaming plays in their family life.

Make sure to check out MACE Con (November 2-4 in Charlotte, NC) where Jodi and the girls will be leading an entire track dedicated to gaming kids.

In pop culture news, we talk about a recent episode of The Big Bang Theory, “The Re-entry Minimization.” Our community discussion focuses on your responses to the provocative question: Will the term gamer become obsolete?

We’d love to hear your feedback in the comments. Is gaming a family event for you? A good way to bond? What are some of the ways you learned about good sportsmanship?

Until next time, game on!

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.
