Episode 33 – Columbus Buckeyes Vintage Baseball



Paul “The Magician” Cunningham loves baseball history. He formed the Columbus Buckeyes, a team of baseball players who re-enact Civil War era ball. It takes a special love of the sport to dress in wool in summer, catch fly balls bare handed, and make your own bats out of wood.

Episode 16 – Society for Creative Anachronism



Today we get to explore one of Robert’s hobbies, and invite the King of Midrealm, Don Strubler over for a discussion.  The Society for Creative Anachronism is a group of historical reenactors focused roughly on the medieval period.  But, unlike most clubs who vote on their leader, the SCA chooses theirs by trial by combat.  Don talks to us about his 30 year history with the club, what it means to him, and how you could get involved.

Episode 8 – Columbus Area Board Game Society’s Anton Wilsbach



Anton Wilsbach stopped by the shed to share some Bourbon and talk about why boardgames have made a comeback in a big way.  He’s a “Board member” of the Columbus Area Boardgaming 32622Society, which is one of the largest gaming clubs in America, and meets weekly in Worthington.   While he was at the shed, he talked with Robert and Craig about growing up in Port Clinton, Archaeology, how boardgames can bring a family together, and where, in Columbus, people can find some of the great newer games, just in time for your Christmas shopping.
