Episode 74 — Tapping Away on an Old Typewriter

PCP Facebook_0009-2Welcome to episode 74. Inside you will find a lengthy discussion about games that we have played more than any others, a tasting report on a new single malt, and a few new music recommendations.

But to top it off Jim spends about a half hour talking to Richard “Doc” Diosi of Mercury Games about their upcoming reprint of Princes of the Renaissance.

So sit back and pour a wee dram and enjoy.

unplacedworker0010It’s here.  Time to find out which game will win the Unplaced Worker in Punching Cardboard’s 2014 Game of Tournaments.  While there has been interest, we did not have enough offers to judge the games from real live humans, so we will assign each game to a playoff bound NHL team and let them decide the fate of board gaming as we know it.

After a lot of complex algorithms and random number rolls we have a final listing of games and the NHL teams that will represent them.  Here are the pairings:

Where’s This Week’s Podcast?

Well, Krisitn has gone to Sochi to captain the Jamaican bobsled team in hopes of bringing back some Winter Olympic gold while Jim is down under rocking the guitar tech duties for Bruce Springsteen as the E Street Band rumbles across Australia.  Hence, there isn’t a new podcast today.

Normal service should resume next Tuesday (A little bird told me we might know a little something about a game called Infamy).
