Number Eight: Actuate!

Number Eight: Actuate!

The role of GMing necessitates a little secrecy. Secrecy is sometimes an important aspect of playing roleplaying games. Since it’s a topic near and dear to the hearts of all gamers, and rather improtant to many groups, we decided to answer the question of our listener Nick. Our group is not very secretive, and we hope Nick’s question has a good answer from us and given our loyal listeners something to think about!

We want to hear all your secretses! Rather, how do you handled secrecy or metagaming? Tell us anything you want on Facebook, Twitter, or via email!

This episode’s topic is “Keeping Secrets and Meta-Gaming”

This episode’s topic is “The Physicality of gaming: Where you Game”

Welcome back to the newest episode of 2 Gms, 1 Mic. We’re starting to gear up for GenCon, and while going to conventions is fun, it’s important to think about where we game while not on vacation. In fact, having a comfortble place to game in probably contributes a lot to a satisfying campaign.
