Ding & Dent: Remote Board Gaming in the Age of Coronavirus

The Goonhammer group is made up of dozens of multi-talented authors, many of which have other projects outside of the site. In addition to his work here, Raf Cordero has his own podcast, Ding and Dent, which is not owned by nor affiliated with Goonhammer, but is still very cool and good all the same.

Social distancing can really cramp your board game style. We generally play games for the social interaction as much as a strategic challenge, and social distancing makes that difficult. Luckily, there are a lot of ways to get your board gaming in even while safely quarantining. Many board games have adaptations on Switch, apps, or even free websites. On this episode we invite Suzanne Sheldon – host of Twitch’s Apptastic and The Dice Tower Podcast – to talk about all the various ways we can keep gaming going in these challenging times.

Timestamps will take you directly to those segments on SoundCloud. All episodes of Ding & Dent can also be found on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever you listen to podcasts.


The world is shut down, so what do we do now? We keep gaming.
