Back Room Chat Room Thursdays, Now With Prizes!

Back Room Chat Room Thursdays, Now With Prizes!

The Back Room Chat Room is THE place to be on Thursday nights. Hang out with our guest hosts, industry leaders and celebrities in gaming. Ask them about upcoming products. Ask them about gaming. Tell us what you’re gaming. Have fun. And win prizes! Each week Beautiful Brains will give away Free Shipping to one person in the Back Room, and we encourage our guest hosts to give something away as well, but it’s not required. They are guest hosts, after all.

How Do I Win Stuff?

Clint and I will ask each person logging in to pick a card, any card, anything from Deuce to Joker (if we have a ton of folks we’ll go to card and suit). We will draw from a deck of cards until one of those cards is dealt. We’ll keep each other honest, don’t worry. The winner will get Free Shipping on one order from the Beautiful Brains website, and don’t forget you always get 10% off with the coupon “ILoveBrains” (To get Free Shipping, just select “Convention Purchase” at checkout). Guest hosts offering a prize will arrange their own conveyance and we’ll do a separate draw. Don’t worry, we’ll shuffle. :)

Where’s the Chat?

If you notice up above there’s a tab labeled “Chat.” You can go there anytime you want to see what’s coming up next week, but the actual chat itself is only “opened” on Thursdays from 9-10 pm Eastern. So if you don’t see the chat, wait until a few minutes before 9 on Thursdays, then click on that tab, and it should be there!

Upcoming guest hosts:

September 22, 2011

We’ve been friends with Ben Dobyns and some of the Dead Gentlemen Productions crew for some years now, and we finally asked them to guest host the chat. And they said yes! Ben’s latest venture is with Zombie Orpheus Entertainment; go take a look at fan-supported media at its best. :)

September 29, 2011

Every year at Halloween I open the windows and crank up the Midnight Syndicate so it spills down the street (and I can’t help but sing along too but as a closet operatic diva that’s another sort of horror). Pretty much every gamer has Midnight Syndicate in the gaming playlist, so we invited them to join us in the chat!  They’ll be promoting their latest CD, Carnival Arcane. Buy it by clicking here! Find them on  MySpace –, Facebook –!/MidnightSyndicate?sk=info, or LastFM –!/MidnightSyndicate?sk=app_19935916616 for Midnight Syndicate’s music.
