Episode 1 – Introduction

Finally the 1st episode is complete.

Aside from an introduction, there are the first rules of learning to play competitively, and an interview with Richard J. Shay plus information on Total Confusion, my favorite small convention with tournaments, from its Board Game Room Director, Rob Kircher, and my pal Joel Feldman.

I have to improve my sound editing skills and apologize for the rough edges, especially the volume changes (and obvious environment changes).
