Description

We're Shawn and Emily--parents by day, gamers by night (okay we're parents by night too but that's besides the point). We love all things gaming from video games to tabletop, so we decided to talk about them! Each week, we'll talk about what we're playing, trends we see, important news and events, and the occasional sprinkle of our experience as gamer parents. So put the kids to bed (or your cats, we're not judging) and enjoy the show!
