Extra Life Game-a-thon 2016: Wargaming Recon #173

The 24hr Game-a-thon was November 5, 2016. Jonathan was fundraising to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital. It is never too late, so please make a tax deductible donation if you can. My goal was to raise $250.  Extra Life raises money for kids who need medical treatment but can’t afford it. Final tally $581.50 was raised.

We will be reducing the number of episodes appearing in our RSS Feed & in your Podcast Players. Being the longest-running wargaming podcast means our feed is GIGANTIC. It has become too large so we had to cut it down. Well not really just organise it a tad differently. Our older episodes will still exist on our website and be available for you to listen to. We will also continue to call back to older episodes as pertinent. Stay tuned for compilation episodes comprised of an entire year’s worth of episodes in a single download – Looks like Josh won’t be getting much sleep!

    That’s a terrible name for Alex’s game. “Jonathan Loots Treasure Chests and Screws Party Over” could work though.
