POLL: #Whovians, Join Us For Tea? #DoctorWho #TimeyWimey @Yogizilla @Faryna

It’s only been about three weeks since we did our pilot episode for Timey-Wimey Tea Time and it feels like so much longer..  The community is bustling, the love is blooming, and there is adventure around every corner.  We are humbled, excited, and eager to keep this going.  We hope you continue to join us for tea or your beverage of choice!

Everyone wants to have tea with Amy / Karen.

This project is an evolving thing.  It’s organic because the community is every big a part of the experience and we go well beyond the video and audio podcasts.  The new friendships and opportunities we are forging together warm our hearts.  As a work in progress, we will continue to improve, experiment, and innovate…

…And it all happens with your help!

Please take a moment to complete the poll at the end of this poll so we can figure a few things out.  We want to serve the Whovian community and our fellow creatives better!

If you haven’t checked out our extended podcast cuts on YouTube, here is the playlist.  We include pre and post-shows here and there just because we are just so excited to share our hearts and souls with you..  Better yet, there’s tons of content already to tide you over and make up for our brief holiday, as some of you so cleverly hinted at!

Ye Olde #Hearthstone Tavern and Inn (16 April 2014) Issue No. 1

Greetings! Hello! Buna!

This is about Hearthstone. It’s about you. It’s about us. It’s also about games, good game play and, oh yeah, it’s about geeky stuff. Welcome bros, women of astounding warcrafts and (last but not least) transgender, illegal alien immigrant-persons from P3X-774.

Among other things, a good game provides a platform for social experience, frell, and the Noxian ritual of life. It brings people together – friends and family. And/or it allows people to connect and get to know each other. Hearthstone doesn’t do this well. Or not yet. But we can pick up the slack here at G.A.N.G (Geekly Antics Network Global).

This post and future Hearthstone posts at Geekly Antics will be our official Ye Olde Hearthstone Tavern and Inn (YOHTAI) – where we can add friends, connect, share, brag, bitch and whine about Blizzard’s game Hearthstone and other things. We’ll also be able to conversate and participate in live and recorded podcasts including HorsePLAY! LIVE and others. And, ok, we’ll do some tips, cheats, and strategies.
Why are you here?!
 
In the comments below, flaunt your OP internet and social game skillz – tell us your Hearthstone ID (Battle Tag), your in game name, your real name (if you dare), your city, connection points, and share your thoughts on Hearthstone with us.

When you add a friend in game, tell them about YOHTAI! Because the more, the merrier!
What you want?!

Feel free to add the hosts of Ye Olde Hearthstone Tavern and Inn in the Hearthstone game and beyond.  This will also make us friends on all other Blizzard Battle.net games, including Starcraft II Arcade and Diablo III, though I have not tried those yet.
