CORGScon is our home convention, and we had our biggest show to date this year. We sold merch, played Video Game Jeopardy, and the Columbus Retro League made their CORGScon debut with the CORGbuster Video Game Championships. It was so big, it took two months for us to get our act together and edit the episode after the event (We had surprise trips to Chicago and Los Angeles to deal with).
So in part 1, we talk about CORGScon with Chris, Tatton, Becky, Steve, Linda, Scott, JD, Russ, Willie from Arcade USA, and Rick from the Intellivisionaries Podcast. Then in part 2 Willie and Rick get the heck out of dodge, while the rest of us play Pre-crash era video game meta game.

Hexadecathlon 2015 was the biggest HDC yet with 26 competitors, and one hexadecathlete traveling to Columbus all the way from Delaware (the state, not the small town just north of CBus). This grand occasion is the largest in-person gathering of Golden Poddie award winning podcast hosts in history. HDC is Chris’s video game christmas and the origin story of this podcast.
