At PAX Prime 2011

Thursday August 25, 2011

Welcome to GeekNights! We're still at PAX, but we probably told you to come to our site for one reason or another. New episodes are twice a week (barring this most recent Tuesday, where Rym magically lost it).

If you want to see our lectures from PAX East 2011, two of them are in our Youtube channel. The third will be up soon, along with our PAX Prime 2011 shows!

If you're looking for Radio Free Equestria, look no further. But, it's just a pilot: the real show is in production (so hold your horses).

Be sure to see our two events at PAX!

Discover the Forgotten Masters
Saturday @ noon: Serpent Theatre

Learn to Play: Boardgames
Saturday 6pm-8pm: Tabletop Workshops - Room 302

Videos from PAX - The Triple Threat

Monday March 28, 2011

We've been diligently working to get some of our lectures/panels online for the benefit of our many listeners who can not make it to the conventions we frequent. I'm pleased to announce that the entirety of one from PAX East 2011 is now available for your viewing pleasure in Rym's Youtube channel.

So enjoy The Triple Threat: Short Subjects in Gaming.

Goodbye PAX, Hello Zenkaikon!

Sunday March 13, 2011

Thank you everyone, especially Enforcers, for a wonderful time at PAX East 2011. We have received the usual bevy of requests for our slides, here they are.

We also had multiple people asking for recommendations for books on game theory. I can't recall the exact title of the one I read from the library, but there are many on Amazon that appear to be quite good. Amazon Game Theory Books

There is one book I recommend which is not necessarily a book on game theory, and is also a large expensive text book, but is probably the best book about game design I have ever seen. That book is Rules of Play: Game Design Fundamentals

Now that one more PAX is over, we are looking forward to the next convention, which is this very weekend! We will be attending Zenkaikon 2011 this weekend March 18-20, 2011 in King of Prussia, PA. Here is our panel schedule.

  • Losing Should Be Fun - Saturday 4:15PM in Live 3
  • Beyond Naruto - Saturday 7:00PM in Live 3
  • Beyond Dungeons and Dragons - Sunday 1:45PM in Live 2
