First the pair discuss the Gaslands, a miniatures game that uses Hot Wheels scale vehicles, from Osprey Games. They touch on how it plays as well as customizing cars, making terrain, and how they are using it at the library.

Next they talk about Keyforge, a unique deck game by Richard Garfield. After talking about why it is useful to libraries they also discuss a bit about the history or technology and game manufacturing.

 
The Detective game, with obligatory cup of coffee. And another bonus game that slipped in when nobody was looking.

The final review is about Detective, a Modern Crime Boardgame that plays like a series of episodes from a particularly intense police procedural TV show. A great gaming experience, but only really suitable for particular game environments.

A good Detective board, though we had another dry erase board as well, and lots of paper notes. Don’t look too closely, because there may be spoilers.

In Games in Schools and Libraries #102 Nate Scheidler of Gigamic World joins Donald Dennis to talk about how and why Gigamic is reaching out to schools and libraries in a very direct and personal way. If you like games check the routes listed below to see if he will be near your school or library with a large selection of Giant Gigamic Games.

Nate’s current theoretical route starting approximately end of June is:

  • Seattle, WA
  • Spokane, WA
  • A short stop in one or two of Missoula, Bozeman or Billings, MT
  • Fargo, ND
  • Minneapolis, MN
  • Green Bay, WI
  • Milwaukee, WI
  • Chicago, IL
  • Fort Wayne, IN and various regional locations from 7/10-8/19

Not a lot of wiggle room on this end and he may need to cut a location.

 

Past that time Nate is considering:

  • Cedar Rapids and Quad Cities, IA
  • Southern IL to St Louis, MO
  • Kansas City
  • Tulsa and Oklahoma City, OK
  • San Antonio, TX
  • Denver, CO
  • Santa Fe and Albuquerque, NM

  • Possibly other middle CA stops
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Sacramento, CA
  • Reno, NV
  • Salt Lake City, UT
  • Boise, ID
  • Portland, OR
  • Vancouver, CA

This tour will continue until approximately 10/10/18. Right now the second half of my schedule and route is reasonably open! If you want me to visit your location, tell me all about the cool stuff you’re doing and send some photos or videos!
