Chicken churches and God's calling in a fallible world. Free tattoo cover-ups for gang members. Robots arrested for buying drugs off the Deep Web. It's your new Weekend Reading post!

Heads-up: This episode includes me talking about the worst game I ever played in. It is glorious.
Banter, beer wars in space, Magic: The Gathering, our favorite stories from the table, and a serious discussion of the power of names and the name of God. It's a new Saving the Game episode!

Thanks to the generosity of our Patreon supporters, we're delighted to bring you the first of a new series of weekly blog posts—our "Weekend Reading" series! These feature curated articles (and a few other things) selected by each host, and run the gamut between gaming news, Christian meditation and ministry, and articles we simply found fascinating. Enjoy, and don't forget to share these around—or to discuss them in the comments!

I'm still out sick for this episode—seriously, do not get influenza-B, folks—but +Peter Martin and +Jenny Dickson did an awesome job with this topic!
Grant’s out sick, what with his entire house having been struck by plagues of all sorts, so Jenny and Peter have the mics to themselves. For our Patreon question, they get handed a very tough question from Jared—”What was the most rewarding campaign you ever ran or played in?”—which takes a bit to answer. Then after our Scripture, it’s on to our main topic. We discuss Catholic and Orthodox traditions around relics to lay some groundwork before moving on to talking about the use of relics in our own games: How they might work in certain sorts of settings; what to do with them; and what to do about fakes. Also, a helpful warning: Never go full Blackleaf.
Scripture: Exodus 25:10-11, 2 Kings 13:20-12, Matthew 27:35

So here's some exciting news!
We have some HUGE news, folks, and #IWD2017 is a great day to announce this. +Jenny Dickson—long-time friend of the show and generally awesome person—will be joining us going forward as a co-host! We're delighted to have her on the show; she brings a lot of gaming experience and unique perspective to the table and the mics.

Please give her a big welcome, and look forward to hearing Jenny on Saving the Game starting with STG 106!

New episode! Grant and Peter discuss exploration as a feature and activity in roleplaying games. Plus, Peter's rough week, Grant's Fellowship game, and ... cars?

Really happy with this episode. Also, please do take a few minutes to watch and listen to the sermon linked in the show notes. You'll find it worth your time.
It's a new STG episode, this time on the high and difficult art of naming your characters! Plus, we spend some time talking about renaming characters (an underutilized trick), as well as the weight and meaning of names. We also answer a question from Patreon supporter Rich about play-by-post gaming. Enjoy!

Our three special guests return to continue with part two of a special episode on personal fitness! Kimi (cosplayer, tabletop gaming podcaster, weightlifter, gym owner, and former personal trainer), Chris (media professional, tabletop gaming podcaster, filmmaker, and former personal trainer) and Krissi (gamer, stay-at-home mom, and licensed Zumba instructor) all join us to put personal fitness into a gamer-friendly context. They (along with Grant and Peter) discuss nutrition, sleep, stress reduction, willpower, and more!
Be sure to catch the first half of this episode if you missed it, where we talked about our own fitness journeys, why exercise and physical health matter, unfocused and focused exercise, and setting goals.
