This month, the Greatway Games team chat about making and makers and how that sits within the board gaming hobby. Join as to hear all the kinds of makers we discuss, along with our usual pet corner & what’s making us happy.
Here are some of the things we mentioned this episode: The Broken Token // Meeple Source // Sugar High Score on Twitter // Ambie from Board Game Blitz’s parody songs and the Board Game Blitz “Ballroom Blitz” parody // Actualol’s emo Pandemic Legacy song // The Happy Luza’s musical look at board games //
Don’t forget, we’ll be at Origins and we’re having a Greatway Gathering at 2pm on Thursday June 15th. Head to table GCCC-MGH T6-8 and look for us - play a game, grab some swag and bring us pics of your pets please and thank you.
This month we take a look at what burnout is, how it happens in the board gaming hobby, and what you can do about it! And, as usual, pet corner and what's making us happy make an appearance.

This month Erin, Adrienne and Nicole take a trip into the comfort zone. We chat about what our personal comfort zones and gaming comfort zones are, a bit about where teaching games fits into that, comfort zones at gaming events, and how to go outside our comfort zones.
