Episode 39: Gaming Rites of Passage, or Orange Juice Carton to the Head 1

Gaming luminaries Chris Pramas and Sean Patrick Fannon join us to talk about those shared experiences all gamers have. From the first time you played, your first set of dice, your first time behind the DM screen, and the first time you lose a character. Remember running into That Guy? Or that first time you realized you were speaking a foreign language? We’re talking about all those old memories and those milestones that new gamers have to look forward to.

One thought on “Episode 39: Gaming Rites of Passage, or Orange Juice Carton to the Head

  • Stephen T

    There is one *GIANT* Rite of Passage that you didn’t cover in this episode, which is funny, because it was mentioned at the beginning by one of your guests.

    That Rite of Passage is the first time you bring out one of your favorite RPGs and dice to teach your own child how to play. If you don’t have your own kid, maybe it is your nephew or niece that you teach, or perhaps the kids of your friends. Being able to introduce a younger generation into the world of gaming has got to be one of the most rewarding Rites of Passages any game can enjoy.
