Remember Me

Happy Sunday, friends! It’s time to grab that cup of tea and settle in for another super special #SundayLoot unboxing. Every week, we curate a list of the talented folks working hard to create safer, more positive spaces for gamers (and geeks!) like us. We feel very strongly that it’s important to boost the voices of smaller teams because it introduces you to fun, inclusive communities where you can make new friends and find support from like-minded gamers.

Our First Episode! Prism Shells, Tres Witchers and E3 with @chrisalgoo

10 June 2015

Prism Shells, Tres Witchers and E3 predications!

Welcome to the first episode of Fresh Out of Tokens!

A little about the show: so we’ve been sitting on doing a podcast for a whole and decided to run with it. The title actually came to about due to a comment when I was on Justice Points earlier in the year. I made a crack about tokens belonging in the arcade, and when I was trying to think of a name for the show fresh out of tokens came to me.

We’ll bring you a new show every other week, sometimes with a guest sometimes not depending on how things shake out. Since this is the first episode, please feel free to give feedback, topic ideas or if you want to come and hang with me let me know at freshoutoftokens@gmail.com or on twitter at @OutOfTokensCast.
