The title says it all. In this episode I am joined by Brian Peace, Ginger Peace, Josue Cardona, and Suzi Harris in a discussion about the impact of gaming on relationships (intimacy and sexuality). The episode is R rated so sensitive listeners may just want to wait around for something less evocative. Thanks for listening.
Recently, our list of Rolling for Change projects has been growing and I believe that we are building some momentum. We have a ton more podcasts in the works, we are working towards doing some Twitch streams, and we are working to get invited to several gaming conventions. I am pretty excited about our growth and I am certainly excited that you dear listeners are joining us for this wacky adventure of discovery we are on.
This episode is a brief exploration into the social aspects of gaming and how those games bring us together, and perhaps at times even serve to create distance between us. Josue and I are not the final answer, but I believe we uncover a number of hidden things that will be of interest to all of you and to our hobby as a whole.
Stay tuned for the next episode when Brian, Josue and I are joined by Ginger and Suzi to discuss the ways that games enhance intimacy.
Keep Rolling, and Keep Changing
This year is going to be an amazing year for our little podcast. You will see more regular content, twitch streams, and potentially live shows at gaming conventions.
That said, I am very excited to offer this deeper discussion of life simulation games. Brian, Josue and I discuss the values and reasons behind life simulation games. We discuss tabletop gaming and computer games both. I hope you will enjoy this journey.
Best wishes, keep on gaming, and keep on Rolling for Change.

Do you ever find yourself uncomfortable while playing games? Perhaps you are intimidated by the group you are with, or you don’t like the theme of the game you are playing. Maybe the game wants you to be placed in a situation of discomfort. Whatever the case, in this podcast Brian, Josue, and I explore what it is like to be in an uncomfortable gaming situation. I think there is some value with being in uncomfortable situations, and I think gaming gives us an opportunity to have this experience at a micro-level, hopefully better preparing us for future situations of discomfort. We would love to hear from you all. After you listen to the podcast talk to us here on the forums, or drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org Let us know what situations in gaming make you feel uncomfortable, or give us feedback about our podcast. Oh yeah, please rate and review us on iTunes or whatever podcast aggregator you use- we really appreciate that.

This time around its a discussion about one of my favorite co-op card games with one of my favorite people. In this episode I discuss the nuances and psychological powers of Antonie Bauza’s “Hanabi”. This is not just a simple card game, but a recipe for how to live your life. Join us for an enlightening discussion of this amazing card game.
