Episode 17 — This Ever Expanding Universe

Episode 17 — This Ever Expanding Universe

Suburbia_0008Spring Break is over and we are back to talk about board game expansions.

What do they add to game play? Are they worth it? Why such a big box? That little box is cute. Where the hell is the Trains expansion? I don’t like these giants. You’re sacrificing who to whom? You got your Carcassone in my Keyflower!

We want Trains, expanded!

Listen for the rain.

Episode 16 — Too Long in the Wasteland: The Double Album Episode

agents_0016Firstly, we really like this episode and feel we were actually good this time out.  B, we apologize for the length as we were so busy being good that we ignored the timer we set to constrain ourselves. Well, not so much ignored the timer as spat right in its face.

In our longest episode to date (and hopefully ever) we announce our Game of Tournaments, review The Agents, and dissect the Kickstarter experience. We do a lot of dissection here.

So please enjoy our Scorsese director’s cut of a show and watch for our Game of Tournaments post announcing the 16 games that will be competing for the Unplaced Worker award.

Episode 15 — Cramer vs. Cramer vs. Cramer, et Malz

Lancaster_0005It’s a Cramer fest!

This week we discuss the merits of making Scotch whisky for clansmen up in Scotland, fighting France for the favor of King Henry, and sewing dresses for the French socialites we just, um, conquered for said King, while drinking the whisky we made, because, well, why make it if you’re not going to drink it, and will this sentence ever stop running?!?

What we’re trying to say is we look at several games designed by Matthias Cramer. Maybe we should stop drinking.

PCP014_0001Yes, this was it: our show about nothing, our Seinfeld episode.  See what the critics have to say.
