With ref' to the boxing of Print and Play games you've made, here's some of what I've done in the past.

Lost Patrol is in the box from Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot RED Booster
Dune is in the box from a copy of SQL Server 2000 (software)
Micropul is in an old Paracetamol box
Hour of Glory: Stronghold Kit is in an old Backgammon box
Dungeon Plungin' and Space Hulk are in an old 500pc puzzle boxes ( I was at a car-boot sale and the puzzles were marked at 50 pence each, I bought them both and you should have seen the look on the face of the seller when I plonked the box contents back on his table and walked off with the boxes! )

I tend to cover one edge of the boxes in white paper, this is the face thats visible on the shelf, and write the name of the game on that.

Great show. I just started listening a couple of weeks ago and finally got caught up. I like the chemistry between the three hosts, very entertaining. I'm sad there's no more "RA!!!"

There's only one thing that I don't like though.

Sorry to say, but I really can't stand the Giles section of this podcast. I just find it so boring and I'm not sure if it's the accent or the content. Something just turns me off about it, not sure what. I usually just fast forward through his part.

Am I the only one that feels this way? Maybe it's just me. Sorry, Giles.

It's on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard'.

It's worth finding, but bring a torch

Hahaha - Sorry Bill! I'll try my next segment in a Bello-Russian Accent and see if that improves the interest level!!

Any suggestions as to how I can improve it for you (Bello-russian accents non-with-standing)?

Cheers,

Giles.

Apparently those hoodlums over at the Metagamers have picked up Scott's banner on that. So even though they are scoundrels of the first water over there, you should check out their show.

How do you feel about single voice segments on other podcasts? I often find them hard to listen to unless I'm really engaged with the topic. I don't have any trouble following the games in education segment, perhaps because it is a topic that is very important to me. Do you think a second voice would help? We've discussed making it the segment a discussion instead of a monologue.

Giles has a great interview with an educator who uses games the next episode or two. Give that a listen and see if the second voice helps.

I think Don might be on to something, maybe it's the monologue. I'll give it a listen next time, when you do the interview. Maybe a second voice will make it more interesting for me.
