I've wanted to start a podcast for a while. It's actually happening this May. I've tossed around several concepts, but I ultimately settled on The Board Game Bartender (and yes, I did buy the domain).

I plan to run the following segments:

My First GAMA

Ready to Roll in Reno

I'm currently sitting in a hotel room in Reno, Nevada. This is the second time I've been in a casino city (I was in Vegas for IBD's Chart School in 2015) and had no clue how to spend my time between obligations.

To Do: Add to Goodreads shelf.

After only just picking up several of the fantastic books that came out last year (Easy Go, The First Confessor, and The Luminaries among them), I've decided to look towards the coming year in the hopes that I don't wait until The Goodreads Choice Awards to catch up.

The Steam Library Challenge

AKA The Systematic Rejection of Video Games I've Purchased

My name is Lindsey Saxton and I have a problem. Like many of my fellow PC gamers, I'm addicted to HumbleBundle and the seasonal Steam Sales. Before I started the Steam Library Challenge, I owned 209 videogames on Steam, and I'd only played 15 of them (~7%). Two months ago, I decided to change that by systematically playing every game . . .
