The Sims is the gaming equivalent of Star Wars: Just about everyone has either played it or heard of it. Playing The Sims is like taking a course on the art or making friends. There's a lot to learn and even more to gain. MasterJoe breaks it down while discussing what is arguably the most important aspect of the game. MasterWife follows up by sharing some of her favorite games for friendship-building and explains the science behind why gaming with your acquaintances is such an effective way to level-up new relationships from bronze league to diamond.

Animal Crossing sure is a fun game. You know what else is fun? Meeting new people! That is, unless you have trouble getting to know new people. If that's the case, this episode is for you! This week we break down the social awkwardness of breaking-the-ice with co-workers, classmates, and complete strangers. MasterJoe tackles the situation using Animal Crossing: New Leaf as a guide while MasteWife explains the science behind social phobias. Did we mention that introducing someone to the Heart Piece Podcast is a great way to start a conversation? We're on iTunes and Stitcher now!
