I have heard of the game feature in Games You've Never Heard Of - and I agree it would be a great one to use to keep kids entertained at a con.

I have one that I have used at cons that never fails to attract kids and adults alike, and is fun for everybody - Clay-O-Rama. I would highly recommend it for this segment if you guys haven't already done it. Great show!

I think I've heard of that one before... wasn't that featured in Dragon magazine once, or am I thinking of something else? I'll mention it to Ben if he doesn't catch it here first.

Oh, and I'd thought your name was familiar, so I checked, and yes it was. I've been reading Today in Alternate History for a while now, and was going to mention it at some point, either as a Site of the Fortnight or in a Hey, I Can Use That. Cool blog!

Thanks, and I'm glad you like the show.

The Segment is called game you MAY never have heard of, because any published game some people are going to have heard of it. That being said, when I first came up with the idea for a "Kids Gaming Track" for con, Clay-O-Rama was another game that was suggested, but Fuzzy Heroes was the one I knew was available and had seen played.

My spelling mojo failed me on that comment - I meant to say "featured" in addition to the correct name of the segment.

Clay-O-Rama, (at least as far as I know), was originally from a couple of old Dragon articles. My wife did more research than I did into it, and would probably know - I'll have to ask her.

I've been listening to you guys for a couple months now, and I really like the show - but now that I know you read TIAH, I'm even more of a fan :)
