On episode 20, we introduce some new segments!

First, we announce the winner of a copy of Exit: The Game! Then we talk about Flatline from Renegade Games, Unlock: The Island of Dr. Goorse from Space Cowboys, and Near and Far from Red Raven Games.

We introduce the first entry in our Board Game Trailers segment, where we envision games that should not be movies, as movies. The first subject to get this treatment is Hungry Hungry Hippos.

We head into a brief Game Night Grub segment, and then introduce another new segment, Rule Book Mad Libs!

Finally, we end the show discussing Con Envy. DO you get envious of people who go to all those awesome conventions? How do you deal with it??
