Gnomecast #9 – Game Reviews one

Welcome to the Gnomecast, the Gnome Stew’s tabletop gaming advice podcast. Here we talk with the other gnomes about gaming things to avoid becoming part of the stew. So I guess we’d better be good. Today we have Ang and myself, Chris. Today we are going to get right to the topic at hand which is a few short game reviews. This is something different than we normally do but we thought it’d be a nice change of pace and we might have been informed that the stew was getting a little stale which we believe meant do something different. SO. Here’s something different.

Panda’s Talking Games – 48: Gender

Show us how you play a character of a different gender? Phil and Senda have an awkward conversation about trying to filter societal gender constructs in to some kind of advice for playing NPCs of a different gender than your own.

This was an extremely difficult topic for us to tackle. We’re pretty sure there are people out there who could do this topic with more poise and grace than we did. Inevitably in any discussion of gender we have to acknowledge that gender is a construct of our society, and so anything we throw out is an implant of how we currently live. With that in mind we attempted to be as careful as possible with this topic since it’s very delicate. If you have things to add or the perspective of another gender identity to throw at us in terms of portraying in game, you know where to find us: @pandastalkgames on twitter or panda(at)misdirectedmark.com. Finally, the moral of the story is and always will be: play characters, not genders. 

We also learned that Phil speaks hairball.

Panda’s Talking Games – 47: Thoughts on Gaming with your Significant Other

Show us how you handle gaming with your significant other! What if they’ve never played a game before, but want to try? What if they’re an old hand? What if Phil gets really excited about the Scholastic book fair and we end up talking about ice cream?

Super sorry to jystdave and everyone out there who actually knows the shanty; listening back I realized I did the chorus utterly wrong. Someday I’ll have to do it as a fully produced song and fix it, just to make it up to you. Until that day…..well, just know that I was actually going to re-record it but I ran out of time.
