    Make Your Own game Awards

    What does it take to give awards out to tabletop games? Do you have to be some kind of legit thing or….. Can anyone just do it? We take a look at the American Tabletop Awards from the categories to the winners and nominees of this year and years past. Which led us to coming up with our own ideas for the Love Thy Nerd tabletop awards and that’s what we’re talking about this week on the Free Play podcast.

    Backlog Intervention

    We know some people who have some pretty hefty game collections. But what about 25,000 games? All on Steam? Patch notes in a recent Steam update mentioned a fix for libraries of 25,000+ games.

That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.

    Free Play 119 | The Future of Discord

    Microsoft has had several failed acquisition attempts of other companies like Tiktok and Pinterest as well as the flop of their streaming service, Mixer. But Microsoft isn’t giving up and is trying to expand its reach by acquiring Discord for the small sum of at least $10 BILLION dollars. Yes. BILLION.  Do we think Discord would be a Microsoft exclusive service? Would Discord be better off partnering with Amazon? That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.

    Episode 118 | Scat-egorical References

    What’s the best way to get nerds up and moving? Giving them free games in exchange for steps. The new app Hero Trainer rewards your steps by giving you gift cards to the Playstation Store, Steam, Nintendo eShop, Google Play, and tons of other nerdy places.

Great podcast

Love the podcast — funny and relevant to today’s nerd culture! Topical discussion about video and board games that is fun to listen to even if you don’t play the game they are discussing 😇

Inspiring and Hilarious!

I stumbled upon Love Thy Nerd after looking for more podcast from organizations like Geeks Under Grace and it does not disappoint! More importantly it really is a funny and helpful podcast delving into nerdom and doing so for the glory of God. Awesome podcast that I truly do love, keep up the good work nerds.
