We bring you a bit of a different episode this week, as Chris and Dave attended the Red Dice Games Mini-Con at the weekend where they played a couple of games and interviewed some of the lovely people they met there. Stuart, owner of Red Dice Games, tells us about his shop and the mini-con itself; Tom from Format 15 talks to Dave about his newest creation, Squirrel; Kevin from Inspiring Games tells us about Legends Untold and their plans for the future; and Eric from Juniper Green Board Gamers talks to Chris about bringing science games into the classroom. We also played some Hand of Fate: Ordeals and newly fulfilled Kickstarter Village Pillage, and our topic this week: what themes would you like to see in board games?

The Large and Unnecessary First Player Token Podcast is hosted by Chris, Euan, Pawel and Dave, and alternates between tabletop and video gaming, old and new, on a weekly basis. We chat about the games we've been playing, and our own experiences with them, with our own uniquely Scottish (and Polish) flavour of insight and odd humour.
We are part of Podnose, a network of podcasts covering a wide variety of topics. Check it out!
NOTE: There may be very occasional swearing in the podcast, with some episodes being worse than others (particularly our older ones - we're maturing with age), so keep it out of reach of your boss and children.
