Geeks of the North Episode 31 – Miniature gaming with kids

Hello geeks!

Around Father’s Day, we tried to record a show about miniature gaming with kids. As any parent knows, kids can throw plans out of whack and it’s exactly what happened with this episode’s recording, editing and release. Kind of in theme, don’t you think? We’re through now, and the full crew present our ideas on how to introduce miniatures gaming to your offsprings. So sit back, relax, grab a paintbrush and enjoy the show!
