Is it possible to shake of this much dust?

Hey everyone!

It's Rich here, just getting ready for a little spring cleaning. A lot has transpired since the last time I was on this blog, and I just want to give a quick update. We're not dead here. Not by a long shot. In fact, if you go on over to you can take a look at what's new and exciting in the world of Bacon Ice Cream Productions.

So what's up with Bacon Ice Cream Sundae? Well, I'm happy to report that I'm getting ready to shake the dust off of these mics and get this show back on the road! Just sit tight, and We'll be back before you know it!

That's all for now, We'll see you soon!


Dexcon 16

It's been a crazy year for the Bacon Ice Cream crew. New jobs, new schedules, new cars, new homes. It's been difficult to find the time to get together for more than a dinner here and there. Hell we had to miss Dreamation because of these scheduling issues.

When we were asked to once again return to Dexcon and for the second year do a live stream of the Signature Events taking place we had a serious decision to make. We each decided to take some vacation time and suck it up, dust off the equipment and jump back in after a year off.

So right now we are about two.and a half hours into the first event we are covering, a live team game based on an upcoming board game from Angry Duck Games and Smirk and Dagger games. It only took us about an hour to get things to actually do what we wanted them to do, and that's after I got off a 13 hour shift at my new job. I consider that a success.

Tomorrow we have the $5000 Interactive Puzzle Challenge starting at 8am, followed by the highly anticipated Ogre Macrotures based on the release due out from Steve Jackson Games at 2 pm.

On Saturday at 7pm we are filming the Space Marine Team Challenge which was fun to do last year so I am looking forward to it.

Stayed tuned all weekend for all the live coverage.


Just over two weeks to go.....

Dexcon 15 kicks off on July 4 which is just over 2 weeks from now. We will be streaming a large portion of the Signature Events taking place throughout the convention schedule directly on for anyone that can't make it to the event.

The first one we will be live broadcasting is taking place (unless we can set up to broadcast Opening Ceremonies) Thursday Night at 8 pm and is Space Cadet Live.

I am looking forward to this event a whole hell of a lot.


Memorial Day

So I just got back from the Double Exposure Memorial Day Barbeque at the Double Exposure Headquarters in White Plains New York. I shot a bunch of promo interviews about the different Signature Events happening at Dexcon 15 and I will be editing and posting them this week.

Dexcon 15 Signature Events

Between Rich changing jobs recently and Diabolik running Pro Tour Qualifiers for Magic there has been very little time to sit down and produce the podcast.
We've been asked to be the official broadcasting partner for Dexcon 15 taking place July 4 through July 8.
I'm sure you are questioning what that means. Short answer is live coverage of 4 of Dexcon's Brand New Signature Events Series.

What are these Signature Events? Well I'd suggest going to for the best information, but I'll give a rundown on what Bacon Ice Cream will be doing.

First things first we have the $5000 (that's not a typo)  Interactive Puzzle Challenge where 30 participants will be locked in a ballroom and have 5 hours to solve a puzzle. Every hour that ticks away takes with it $1000 from the prize pool. Bacon Ice Cream will be live streaming the contest to the rest of the convention along with allowing those unlucky people who can't make it to Dexcon to watch live online.

Then we have Space Cadet Live. Space Cadet the board game is an upcoming release from Stronghold Games but the creators have decided to make it a live action game as well. The live game will have teams of players competing for a grand prize of $1000. Each team will be in charge of a different section of a spaceship and will have to deal with the different situations that arise over the course of the game. We will be live broadcasting this as well as streaming it live to the internet for everyone to experience.

For those of us familiar with Warhammer 40K there is going to be a spectacular Team Space Marine tournament where squads of players with put on Space Marine Armor and duke it out for $1000 prize pool which will also be available to watch live on site and online.

Bacon Ice Cream has also been asked to stream the Iron GM Challenge that will get the winning GM an invite to GenCon. Basically GMs will be given unknown elements to then incorporate and create a RPG game which will then have players vote on after playing through the campaign.

All in all we are very excited about the new and improved Dexcon 15. With over $10,000 in prizes going out to the winners we expect a lot of excited and exhausted people over the Fourth of July weekend.

You should check out for more information about the other Signature Events along with details on how to pre-register for the entire (or part of) convention.
