Bernard's back!

This week's episode is a longer one, stretching out to just shy of an hour, but I was absolutely stoked to welcome Tomas Rawlings of Auroch Digital (and a patron), who brought me news of emerging devices for hybrid tabletop/digital gaming that I found absolutely fascinating, and it was terrific to get Tomas's insight into how these could transform our tabletop experience.  I start as a skeptic, but really found my enthusiasm growing as Tomas explained what could be done with products like these.

The news items this week covered:

The Square One 

The Gameboard-1 

The Tilt Five 

2D6 Wargaming and 6mm Sengoku Jidai 

GCT Studios, Bushido and The Brotherhood

Additional listening on the topics discussed can be found here:

Para Bellum Wargames
