We are on the march to 100 episodes, four years in the making. In this episode, Craig is joined by Erin and Tyler to talk about their recent plays including Space Base from AEG and Ganz Schon Clever.

Episode 89: How About the Other Half This Time?

It’s Episode 89! I guess it’s time to let the other half of the regulars show their faces. In this episode, Tyler chats with Craig about porting video games into board games and the difference in how those mediums evoke an emotional response. Yeah, I’m as shocked as you are they Tyler gets that deep. In the third segment, Matt H. and Craig talk about games…all the games. No topic here, there be only games!

Episode 88: Half the Guests, Half the Fun

It’s episode 88 of the show, and it’s bittersweet. On the good side, Craig hit release day. On the bad side, each segment only has half the guests. On the good side, the show is a more manageable listening time. On the bad side, no… I think that’s it. So a check in the win column, I suppose! In this episode, Craig is joined by Erin in the family segment to talk about their plays and then in the third segment, Derek stops by to talk about necessary and unnecessary expansions prompted by a listener question. It’s a good one, so don’t skip it (unless you’re a Tyler or Matt fanboy, I guess).

Episode 87: How Many of You Are There?!

Can you believe it’s already been two weeks? It feels like just yesterday I was staying up past my bed time to post an episode for you lovely listeners, but here I am, red eyes and all. In this episode, Craig is joined, as usual, by the family to chat about their plays including Red Dragon Inn, and a bunch of other games they’ve all talked about a thousand times. In the third segment, Derek and Matt stop by to talk about oversaturation in the hobby and each of their responses to the release of 3300+ games last year. Strap in, it’s a long one, and Craig whines a whole bunch.
