New Year, New Campaign! – Hexes & Bows Podcast S2E1


(Press play to listen, or subscribe on iTunes, GooglePlayPodbean!)

With new dice, new projects, and new cast members, the Hexes & Bows Podcast is ready to surprise attack 2018!

We’re beyond thrilled to be recording and sharing our geeky content with you and cannot thank you enough for your continued support. We sincerely hope the winter holiday season kept you in good spirits and, perhaps, introduced you to new games! We’ve got lots of updates to share in this episode including some details regarding our actual play podcast, a new podcast release schedule, and a brand new cast member!

After the announcements you’ll find an excellent discussion about the impact of playing board games as a child may have impacted our lives as adults, sharing the love of tabletop gaming by introducing the hobby to family, how gamers can be involved with local communities and promote gaming in a positive light, and of course, Overwatch. Because… Overwatch (GO DYNASTY!).

We end the episode with two questions for you, dearest adventurer:

  1. How do you think gaming (tabletop) has influenced your life, especially if you were introduced to the hobby at an early age?
  2. Do you run/host/create tabletop gaming events for your community (after school programs, nursing homes, charity…)? If so, share with us the details!

Thank you so much for helping us make Hexes & Bows in 2017. Your support, kindness, and love of gaming continue to motivate us in improving the show for you. We can’t wait to share all of our new projects with you and we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy creating them!

H&B PODCAST EPISODE 007: Extra Life United!

This episode of Hexes & Bows Podcast steps away from the world of tabletop gaming to discuss the extraordinary charity event known as Extra Life United! Join Gnome and Hansard as they recall their experiences at Coronado Springs Resort in Disney, Orlando, Florida! *Be advised, there is some adult language used after 00:49:00 as the conversation moves away from Extra Life.*

Gnome and Hansard happily share their experiences at Extra Life United 2017. Gnome, a volunteer, and Hansard, a competitor, offer two different viewpoints of this wonderful event that allowed many gamers to take home a chunk of $150,000 for their local children’s hospital through Extra Life!

We also talk about International TableTop Day which is coming up on April 29th, 2017! Let us know in the comments what games you’re playing for this epic day of gaming!

As the conversation continues, special guest Chris from Car Bomb Podcast returns to talk about Squarriors: The Card Game‘s current Kickstarter campaign with Gnome! Get more insight on the campaign, reasons to back, and how to play. STCG is over 200% funded, so definitely support their Kickstarter!

Join us next week as we return to our usual discussions about tabletop and roleplaying games! Thanks for listening!
