    Behind the scenes at a con!

    Behind the scenes at a con!

    Hey all! Really apologize for the delay. Mark got very sick again and still recovering but come together for a recording! As we ramp up our plans for the re-launch we might miss a week randomly but we are doing our best not to! This week was a cool episode as Sam came back from running her own booth at Con of the North for her board game company.
