Here's an early Christmas Present for you - Game On! with Cody and John.
In this special episode of Game On! with Cody and John, we come out of retirement to record a special episode in support of the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund. The winner of our JVMF auction was Trent Hamm ("trenttsd" here on BGG), and he's our programming director and benevolent dictator for this episode. So, listen as we expound on Gen Con for newbies, discuss how to start an RPG group from scratch, and bring you a full review of FFG's Android:Netrunner. For this episode only, Trent rules!!

Whew! Another long episode in which we talk about recent games, such as Manhattan Project, Treehouse, Edo, Guidhall, and Courtier. We also answer quite a few user questions, where we talk about almost getting sued, why we keep expansion boxes, which side of Merchants of Venus is better, and what to do if you want to publish a game. Finally, we end the episode with our top ten "Games that Have Stood the Test of Time" - games that are just as relevant today as they were when they were published.
