The Ivory Dice Tower segments 3-8

I've been doing 3-minute segments on Tom Vasel's show, Boardgame Breakfast, called The Ivory Dice Tower.  I'm talking about games in the academy.


Every so often, I'll post the direct links to my segments in these shows.

Episode 3 - Introduction & Board Games in Game Studies

Episode 4 - Where to find Game Studies

Episode 5 - What are transformative games

Episode 6 - Discussion of Rules of Play

Episode 7 - What is Play?

Episode 8 - Using Play in Going, Going, Gone!

I was about to comment on your post on Google+ that your segments on the dice tower are too short. Still, I'd like to say that they are very informative and it makes me want to learn more on the subject. Unfortunately the books you mention are not available in Guatemala. I'll make a list and get them when I go back to Lansing.

I wish I did have more time, but Tom limits the segments to 3 minutes. Therefore, I can't really go into detail during the segments.

Just surfing bye after a recent Boardgame Breakfast. I wanted to tell you that I really enjoy the Ivory Dice Tower segments. It's hard to press good information into very short snippets, but I think you do a great job. And I really like the different angle this gives to board games - potentially/hopefully reaching an audience which otherwise would not get engaged.
Best greeting from Europe.
