The Indoor Kids: Salute to Tabletop Games with Ivan Van Norman

In honor of Tabletop Day (which was Saturday), we invited King of the Nerds/Outbreak:Undead creator Ivan Van Norman on the show. As both a gamer and a tabletop gamer, Ivan schools us (and you) on the different types of tabletop games, what they offer that video games cannot, and what are the best way to dip your video gamer toe into the tabletop waters. Plus, we take a walk on the Burnside to give our first, spoiler-free impressions of Bioshock, play Twitter games, and more!

VIDEO GAMES:
Fallout 3, Starcraft, Tomb Raider, BioShock Infinite, Lego City Undercover, God of War Ascension, Dead Space 3, Ruzzle, Ridiculous Fishing, Plague Inc.
ANALOG GAMES:
