A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch

I've played two games of A Game of Thrones Catan: Brotherhood of the Watch and found them both engaging.  I think I need to adjust my strategy a little and become a bit more aggressive for territory and Development cards as I do in the regular game.  I'm holding back too much in deference to the collective Wildling threat.

I had a wonderful time playing Viticulture in the new gaming and work shed of my pal, Wendy*, on Friday.

GoT 7x07 Behind the Scenes @ Dragonpit

As I look forward to the final season of Game of Thrones, I've been enjoying going back and watching some fun stuff from earlier on including a video which shows some of the best of times for many of the actors on the show.  Enjoy!

Blue Blackout Yeti USB Microphone

After some consideration I decided to pick up a Blue Blackout Yeti USB Microphone in a bundle that included a Knox Gear Studio Boom Arm, Knox Gear Pop Filter and Tascam TH-03 Headphones.  While I won't be using the boom arm right away, the pop filter and quality headphones will come in handy.  I'll run some tests with it today before plunging in to making episode two of Tabletop Gaming Talk.  Thanks to everyone who chimed in with suggestions on what equipment to research.
