Back to another Session Report & Feedback show, and back to my usual recording setup. This show focuses almost exclusively on play-by-web games, sharing some news about them, and talking about a few of the titles I played recently. Plus the feedback, of course.
As I hoped, this proved to be a notably shorter show. Anything less than an hour is notable for me, now! :) Gives you more time to listen to all of those other boardgame podcasts.
I always forget something in every show, and in this one I forgot to recommend the mailing list (i.e. Yahoo Group) for play-by-web boardgamers. It's called spiel-by-web, but isn't directly associated with Mikael Sheikh's site of the same name. It hasn't been a very active mailing list for some time, but I think would still be probably the best place for a community of players to congregate.
