Welcome, iTunes users!

Now iTunes supports podcasting, and shows like mine saw an immediate surge in listeners. Boardgames To Go was one of the shows included in iTunes' initial podcast directory. So welcome, iTunes users! Go ahead and start downloading whatever you like, though if you're new to podcasting or new to strategy boardgames you might consider one of the intro shows permanently linked at the top of my right sidebar.

Hey Mark,

I just found your podcast via iTunes and subscribed immediately. I think that this is a great format to share enthusiasm about board games. I, myself, am a collector and casual player of wargames and a onetime play tester of SPI/Victory games from long, long ago. Anyway, I liked what you said in the board game resolutions cast about selling more games than keeping. I'm just about to go to my storage space to begin to purge my collection of SPI games that I've been holding onto for nearly 20 years. Right now I'm a big GMT fan and collect a lot of their games.

Maybe you can do some regular shows about solitaire gaming, especially war gaming. I know that is what I've been doing a lot of since it is not easy to gather folks together to play. Also, some chatting/interviews with folks who were/are involved in the business of gaming. Geez, I'd live to tell some of my playtesting stories from my SPI days with Jim Dunnigan and Redmond Simonsen.

Anyway, I like your show and will donate to your tip cup once I have some spare cash (perhaps from some of the games I will be selling soon).

Thanks, Antonio. Several times I've hinted at doing some shows about wargaming. I still plan to do that, it just takes more prep. Truth is, I play very few wargames anymore. But even that small number can generate a lot of worthwhile thought and opinion because wargames are really about something. So I'll definitely try that sometime.

Just as a sidenote, Antonio, you may want to check out the original boardgame podcast, Geekspeak, since it frequently features interviews with boardgame industry figures, although like BGTG it focuses primarily on Euro/German games.
