The third beta episode of GeekNights, from October 18th, 2005, remastered and with a good 20 minutes of commentary by Rym. This was a time capsule for those heady days of 2005: the pop culture, the desktop linux, the PSP, Web 2.0, Lost in Blue, and most importantly, Jack Thompson.
This episode is noteworthy in that we start top sound a fraction of what modern GeekNights became. This is right before we ordered microphones and a mixer, right as we were setting up the first GeekNights site (with Wordpress). It's a fascinating look into how we really got going, the moment we started taking it seriously.
We discovered Caylus and Shadows Over Camelot, fresh from Essen press, and are talking at length about importing sight-unseen games from Germany. We also discovered Power Grid.
If you're not a backer, this is just the commentary about the episode. If you're a Patron of our Patreon, then you can listen to the full remastered episode in all its glory.
