This episode we're talking about the cool stuff we bought at Gencon, or wanted to buy but couldn't because it was sold out already. And, as always, a 15 minute discussion on cereal.
Humans have been travelling since before Elon Musk brought electric cars to outer space. Trains, planes, automobiles, zeppelins, uh... horses? We're gonna talk about them all in this episode!
I really wanted to do more games that only have you farming points or cubes or whatever but I thought that was too meta and not at all what we were even going for with this one!
Are apps the future or a passing fad? Who can say, but we have some favorites. What better way to spend the holiday than with your eyes glued to a screen playing one?
We're back from Origins and ready to talk about the cool games that we played, and none of the games that we didn't play. We also talk about the Origins awards.
Chicken coop games! How many games could there possibly be about chicken coops? Wait, hang on, I'm getting an update here - turns out we're talking about co-op games! Cooperative games are great fun, but why are so many of them so difficult?
There are so many board games based on TV shows but 85% of them are space or sci-fi TV shows. Jondi is dying in this episode, which is our first episode recorded "on-the-road" with the new "mobile studio," aka we put all of the equipment in a mobile studio rack and now I can carry a 300lbs box around yay.
Listen to how dumb we are in this highly controversial episode where we talk about how we're too dumb to read a rule book correctly! We didn't intend this to be an episode where we just complained about everything, but we just kind of started talking and got lost.
There are lots of great games that are available for free (or at least just the cost of printer paper and ink). Some are homebrew, some are games that are available to print as a demo, and some are just weird. And I cannot stress just how much Jondi hates Werewolf.
Originally this episode was going to be about something completely different. Oh well. Toss these games in your bag and go stand in line somewhere, because it's time to think about waiting for food at restaurants while playing board games!
