Project Play - the hosts pick an ambitious and far reaching goal and see it through and chronicle it for the show! Over the next few episodes Alex and I are going to obtain, play and chronicle Intro into miniature gaming! Starting with Fantasy Flights X-Wing!! We will look at price point, ease to obtain, play and  storage requirements. Then we dive deeper all episode!
