AGC 100 April 9 2009 (Bride of the Big Damn Review Show) (1:27:03)

With Mark Kinney, Carol, and Ben Balestra. Mags was taking some personal time this episode, look for her return and that of her series of Convention Gaming. Mark went to YottaQuest while in Cincinnati for Worldwide D&D Game Day and he reviews one of his purchases from there. Carol shares that "Secret Life of Girl Gamers" is coming back this month. In News, Geek Chic Roadshow and news about the uber game-table, the Sultan, as well as other goodies that don't require a second mortgage. Explanations about the odd blog posting and why listeners got an unexpected PDF with the 'Gestalt' review. Carol talks about 'Gestalt: The Hero Within'. Mark gives more Superhero goodness (or badness) with a review of 'Necessary Evil', a supplement for the Savage Worlds Explorers Edition system. Carol gives her two-bits on 'PC Pearls' from Goodman Games, and the importance of flour in your party (mmm, pancakes!). Mark gets to review 'Old Frontiers', published by Frontier Games and one he's been itching to review for awhile now. Ben Balestra talks about Metamorphosis Alpha. A salute to Andy Hallet. Feedback cut, and will go into an Extra. Mark's trip to YottaQuest after the end theme.
