The Game's the Thing


Podcasts , Gaming

In 2006 Ron Blessing and Kainan Jarrette started The Game’s the Thing, a podcast that featured mostly board game reviews. Over time Kainan left the podcast, paving the way for Ron’s wife, Veronica, to join the show, and the podcast morphed into an interview show about roleplaying games.

In early 2012, Ron and Veronica thought they left TGTT behind when they ended the show.

The veteran podcasters have returned with new ideas about what TGTT means to them. It’s no longer just a podcast—the Blessings have much more to say than they can fit into 45-60 minutes. It’s also a blog, featuring their thoughts on tabletop games of all stripes, and those of many of their friends.

The podcast releases at least once a month and features interviews, reviews, and roundtable discussions. The blog posts could be anything related to tabletop games. In a typical week, there will be three blog posts—one each by Veronica and Ron, and one from a guest blogger. These will occur Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.

It's so amazing that we have the opportunity to listen to so many years of history is such a fine detail. It's a marvel of the modern world. Thanks for doing this, Robin!
