Episode 13 — Gangs of Mars

Episode 13 — Gangs of Mars

Infamy_0018If you thought that when humans set up a colony on Mars we would have a group of industrious scientists working to unlock the secrets of the red planet, you were wrong.  According to Travis R. Chance, we humans will do what we do best once we colonize Mars: Exploit and corrupt everything.

We cover the excellent game Infamy on this week’s show, and we get a little help from our friend Craige, who has recently become a hardcore analog game addict.  He must’ve taken too much compound in his younger days.

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).

Suburbia_0011Really, you’re sitting there with Candyland spread out on the table and the Wiggles on your stereo? Is this what it means to play board games with your young ones? Oh, the humanity!

Save Yourself!

Trust that your kids can handle something more, something deeper, something that makes you less likely to pack it all in. Throw Galaxy Trucker or Suburbia on the table and Magical Mystery Tour on the turntable (what, no turntable!?!?), and watch your children come alive.

RussianRailroads_0013Beware, low energy conversation ahead!

The dog days of August are an exaggeration.  It’s the dog days of February that really get ya, and as our energy wanes we attempt an intelligent and critical discussion of Russian Railroads.  We attempt.  Yes, attempt.

Maybe Monday night isn’t the best time to attempt things.
