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!

Hexes & Bows: Return of the Podcast

Hey everyone!

I wanted to take a moment to apologize for not posting new episodes or content these last two weeks. Life is very hectic (in the best of ways) right now, and we were on hiatus for at least one of those weeks due to Extra Life United.

Our very own Hansard deserves a shoutout for playing games hard and earning a seat in the top 10 finalists at the Extra Life United tournament. He brings home $4,500 for his local children’s hospital! Great job, Hansard! We’re proud of you!

Now that schedules and personal obligations are set, we’ve got lots of plans coming to H&B that we want to share with you!

The podcast will be returning to its regular Monday release with the exception of tomorrow. Joe, Tim, and Hansard recorded an awesome episode that will be published shortly!

We’ll also start welcoming guests onto the show! The creators of Shattered Dawn on Kickstarter will be joining us April 6th to discuss their game! On April 20th, we’ll be welcoming miniature painter Iron Tusk Painting to share his work and some tips!

Speaking of Kickstarter, do check out Squarriors: TCG! We spoke of them back during episode one of our podcast. The project is live and funded in the first 12 hours! Creators Ashley Witter and Ash Maczko will be livestreaming April 6th to answer questions, so be sure to tune in!

Our next livestream of Dungeons and Dragons will be on April 16th at 1pm so come hang out, relax, and enjoy a roleplaying adventure with Grohl, Taliel, Makaria, and Teak as the mysterious Fey Queen visits the Material Plane in Neverwinter!

Thanks so much for listening! We can’t wait to make more tabletop related content for you!
