Behind the Shield – Episode 53 – “Game Masters and Snow Days”

Our episode today is a little late because of a big snow we had yesterday in our area, but we’d never leave our fans without a podcast!  Lots of great info here about the Game Master Workshop Sam will be running in our Norton location.  Also you can listen as Amanda and I talk about big news from Wizards about changes to the Pro Tour and about playing Captain Sonar at the Gaymers of New England gathering last weekend.
