In this ultramegasupersized episode, Jason interviews two figures from Historicon. The first is Walt O'Hara, who was kind enough to extend the invite to Jason and who also just happens to be the man behind the "Historical Simulations" category of the annual Games 100 (from Games Magazine). The second is convention director Bob Giglio, who has a long history with miniatures wargaming and Historicon (among other cons). Jason gets to explore that other side of wargaming, miniatures wargaming, through these interviews. Chad weighs in on the "knife-fight" that is King Phillip's War. Jason also shares all the news that fit to -- okay, most of the news that's -- All right, honestly, he covers the stories he finds interesting. Packed in with this chock-full episode are Jason and Chad's takes on the upcoming WBC, and why Jason is calling himself "Open-Gaming Guy" this summer. And what is this fascination with Middle Earth Quest?
