For today's lesson, we learn about Pavel Chekov. How important is a theme in a game? Does it actually matter? We don't talk about any of that. This entire episode is devoted to Chekov.
Happy Birthday America! We're talking about how to get your non gaming friends into the hobby, maybe a day too late. Oh well! We also featured a special burger recipe from one of our Twitter followers!
We somehow survived Origins 2017, and we've brought back our opinions. I think this is the most tired I've ever been near audio recording equipment.
I am aware that St. Charles is technically a different city than St. Louis proper, but try explaining that to people that have never been anywhere near there.
Today we're talking about playing games with people who have jobs fixing cars. Oh, wait, that's wrong. Sometimes games can be really good but have a mechanic that otherwise we would hate. That, I think, makes the game even more special. We also totally didn't post any video content from Geekway.
We talk about some DO'S and DON'TSES for board game conventions. And also life in general. Plus Jondi actually made recipes.
Our Tabletop Day retrospective, with some weird audio that I was too tired to fix. Next episode as scheduled!
Important topics from this week's episode: My Peppino is ready, What happened to Donkey Kong Jr. (Who Was Good at Math)?, and other amazing topics that aren't dexterity games!
Crossroads. It's Crossroads. Not Pathfinder. In this episode we talk about some of the games that were revealed or featured at the GAMA Trade Show in Las Vegas. Crossroads mechanic. We also talk about the growing trend of board games being sold in big box stores, and unusual game nights.
Really guys, I want to say how sorry I am about this episode. The amount of hard work that goes into making art for games is just incredible, but sometimes we just don't like it.
