    Gaming Time Capsule with Bob Yates – Wargaming Recon #271

    Gaming Time Capsule with Bob Yates – Wargaming Recon #271

    Joshua Shoobridge hosts this episode featuring long time gamer, Bob Yates.  Bob can be seen in the award-winning documentary Word From a Gamer directed by Steven Wollett (award-winning director and friend of the show).  He has been gaming since his early childhood.   Although he considers himself more of an RPG and board gamer, many of us play more than just wargames and minis.
    Bob discusses his early years in gaming and the evolution of tabletop gaming to current day.  He is a beloved GM at conventions where he implements characters for RPGs.  He shares tips on how to successfully game with kids.  You can find Bob at the Total Confusion tabletop gaming convention in Marlborough, Massachusetts where he is a VIP.

    Alyssa Faden LIVE – Wargaming Recon #270

    Alyssa Faden LIVE – Wargaming Recon #270

    Alyssa Faden returns in a live recording from the virtual con “Hold The Line.”  This is the virtual convention put on by the Maine Historical Wargamers Association in 2021.
    Alyssa is the owner of Alyssa Faden Cartography. You can watch her streams on YouTube Monday – Wednesday. On her YouTube channel she also features reviews, tips & tricks, and a series in which she reviews her own map making. She’s raised bundles of gold coins for charities.  She’s also been an industry guest at Gary Con, TotalCon, and numerous other game conventions.
    We talk about wargaming in general and discuss why it is important to keep a record of what you own. This record keeping allows Alyssa to get everything for a project in one go. Most of us should be able to take a few pointers from her.

Entertaining and Engaging

First, full disclosure. I know the host and have been a guest on the show a couple of times.

With that out of the way,Wargaming Recon is an entertaining show that explores many various aspects of the wargaming hobby, both miniature and tabletop. It has a New England slant on things in a lot of ways, but don't let that turn you off if you live elsewhere.

The show delves into all things gaming, from reviews to what to know when attending your first game convention, to gift buying guides. There are really very few aspects of gaming that haven't been touched on in one way or another during the show's life. Guests make frequent appearances and have included game designers, magazine editors and others running the gamut from indie developers to true industry luminaries to the gamer down the street.

The host has a friendly, engaging and humorous style that will keep you entetained for the length of the show. If you are a gamer you want to check out Wargaming Recon. It's certainy worth what you pay for it! :P
