Podcast Episode 27 – Gamerooms on a Budget


We took your feedback to heart and have gone back to our roots by interviewing two regular joes that happen to be huge gameroom junkies: Juan Jusino and Eric Hoshooley. Also, with the focus back on gamerooms themselves, we read listener feedback to our question of “What kind of gameroom would you create with a budget of only $1500?” Of course there’s plenty of personal gameroom updates, current events, and even a major announcement regarding a new project helmed by Preston and Patrick (and friends) themselves. Join us, won’t you?
