Geekery in General 267: Gaming in the Age of COVID

January 19, 2021 @ 9:00 pm

To say the year 2020 changed the world would be an understatement. But through all the chaos, confusion, and coronavirus the dice continued to roll. With a COVID vaccine finally rolling out health experts believe there might be a light at the end of the tunnel. We can't say for certain when things will get back to normal, but it is safe to say that it will be a few months.

In this episode Al, Scott, and Chad discuss how COVID and social distancing impacted their gaming habits and how we continued to participate in the hobby we love.
