Finally after years of begging and pleading by at least one person, well it wasn't so much begging than asking the question…actually thinking about it he might have made a joke…well anyway doesn't matter now, we've started our Podcast series. But why? And who are you anyway you might ask? Well here goes the history.

A few years ago a handful of people started meeting regularly to play games in a small local shop in a small village in Surrey, England, UK. That group started growing over months until we run out of space. Sadly that shop closed in late 2012 and we were homeless.

This lead to this group, Board2Death UK, these days we have several events a week, those include RPG events and various card games. However the main attraction still remains the Friday evening board gaming events.

We have about 160 members and try to spread the joy of gaming also on twitter, Facebook and now podcasts.

The podcast was talked about some time ago but we always said without having a clear concept there was no interest to just add to what's already out there, there are a lot…and some really good ones as well, our favourite podcasts are "The Secret Cabal" and "Shut up and Sit down" (in case you were wondering).

The simple concept what we will do our best to try to bring across is playing a game, selected by the listeners and bring them to the table during one of our upcoming events. Immediately afterwards we'll sit down and discuss how that went for everyone and why people had a good time or maybe struggled here and there…

Also will there be a short introduction to the game itself providing an overview of the theme, mechanics etc.

I think we can all agree that doesn't matter how well made a game is and how smart a mechanic may be a game succeeds by allowing a group to have a fun social experience and it is that experience we are trying to capture.

Episode 1 is available now and episode 2 will be released in 2 weeks time, followed by an intro to B2D dicussions. We soon should be listed in iTunes as well and hopefully BGG.

How this will translate and evolve who knows but we would love to hear your feedbacks and suggestions.

So where can you find us you ask?

I am looking forward to many more chats and I am sure things get even more relaxed and easy going as we gain more experience. What I am hoping for is that people outside the club provide us with some good feedback to make it better, so many people out there that are doing this already and can help us to improve.
