Kicked in the DiceBags: Side Project Episode 3: Girls in Pajamas; Snowbound Podcasting

Hey everyone!
Are you ready for a little GIRL ON GIRL ACTION? GIRLS talking with GIRLS about GIRLS gaming and GIRL gamers! GIRL!
Here's what happened: About a week and a half ago, Minnesota was hammered with a major blizzard: 20 inches of snow in 20  hours. This is the worst snowfall we've had since 1991, so pretty much the entire Twin Cities metro area shut down, including the places where my wife and I work. So my wife and our two good friends (all three of whom are of the feminine persuasion) got on the mics in their jammies and jawed about gaming. So here it is! I hope you enjoy it!

Kicked in the DiceBags: Side Project Episode 2: Munchins and Min-Maxers and Power Gamers, Oh My!

Hey guys, Adam again.

Nick and I sat down and had a conversation about the aforementioned types of gamers. We define them (as best we know how), talk about what it is to be these things, and how to deal with it when you have one of these in your game. I don't know how successful we were at that last part, but...

If you have definitions or suggestions, go ahead and leave them in the Comments prompt below, shoot us an e-mail at, or catch me on the Fear the Boot Forums - my forum handle is: The Almighty Bear.

Next week, we've got something special planned, so stay tuned...
