Some games contain a gimmick. Do these gimmicks make the game better, worse, or neither?

Sideboard Discussion

Scott went to Origins and he and Erik discuss it and large conventions in general

Stoplight Reviews

I'd like to thank Don and Scott for being on the podcast and Philip Jacques for the music this episode.

Since, Don was moving, I got to do the editing. Any problems are my fault.
