Behind the Shield – Episode 55 – “Gaming for Pax”

Pax East is only a couple weeks away.  There’s a lot of work that goes into getting ready for a big show like this, but for Battleground the best part is playing a whole bunch of games!  Amanda, Andrew and Derek all talk about games they’ve played to get prepped for the expo.
