Our Plans to Return

One thing we've decided about our return is that it has to be right. We understand it's going to take time as well, so we beg your patience. At this point, we're thinking the return of a regular show will be some time in the first half of 2014. We have a few requirements for our return, including a new website, a stable recording environment, and a consistent schedule. It's also our hope for both of us to blog regularly on the site, so perhaps The Game's the Thing isn't just a podcast, but more of a multimedia thing. Finally, we are looking to perhaps publish our own game material under the TGTT banner. This last one will likely take the most time to get rolling. Whatever happens, we will keep you posted.

We did do a little bit of recording at TactiCon over Labor Day weekend. It will produce one or two shows that will be released through the feed, but for strategic numbering purposes it/they will be listed as "specials." Look for at least one very soon.

Until next time, do good, avoid evil, and play more games!

The End of the Show As We Know It, and We Feel Fine

Hey folks!

We have been talking about this privately for awhile, and now we think it's time to just do it. We have made the decision to end The Game's the Thing at Episode 100. We think 100 is a great place to end it, and after over 5 1/2 years, we're ready to move on to new things...
