Wow, well done Meeples (especially Graham).

That podcast was just what I needed.

Thanks for the Agricola enabling, great game.

So after listening to the show and posting on the boards for so many years, what exactly is involved if one wants to actually attend Rabbitcon and not just hear about it live/afterward? Do you just wander around in the hills of western Massachusetts and hope to stumble into Julian's kids building a fort? Do you need to know the secret pass phrase and sell yourself into sandwich-making slavery?

While I'd like to invite everyone, the reality is I'm already over capacity with dear, dear friends I know really well in person. Since it's a housecon, I'm really quite space-limited both in terms of how many sleepers and how many day-trippers I can accommodate. I encourage you to make a Keithcon we can all crash!

I think that specific name's already been spoken for by Padriec's house con

1000 times this. If you live out in the burbs or country with plenty of room, I encourage you to make use of it. You can borrow air mattresses and ask people to bring their own, if needed.

I hear that choosing your tag makes you more likely to get an invite.

Ooooooh, burn, Fairy Braincess!

If I hold an E-con out here in the middle of the Indian Ocean, will you guys fly out here?

I really enjoyed the musical interlude. I was listening to this podcast while walking to band practice, so it was very topical!

I'm also among the jealous multitudes listening to Rabbitcon and wishing we were there. I'd start something, but I'm just outside of San Francisco; my house can handle, like, 10 people.

For those seeking a metric: Rabbit's place has 4 bedrooms and somehow we've been cramming ~40 people in there.

Goodjers: now in stackable form

It's bigger on the inside.

Y'know - you guys (In the Meeples) are actually pretty good. Just sayin'.

Thanks man. Just wait till next time!!!

Next time, the Meeples have to record a version of the Conference Call theme. Yes, HAVE to. And the B-Side should be Podunk Stomp.

I am adding this to our list.

Yeah, we're already working on our 2014 list.

Had to come here to +1 the Rowat/Bowie comments.

Uncanny.
