Episode 49 — Whale Blubber and Automotive Upgrades

kanban_0005You do not mess around with Sandra. If she wants something, she wants it now, and you hop to. And don’t try impressing here with your fifth¬†upgraded part when she’s only interested in the first three. She doesn’t have time. Just make sure you’re working enough shifts and pushing those cars through in a timely order to facilitate the Automotive Revolution.

But if you want an escape you can always go to Greenland. In 1200 AD. Find yourself a fine Norse woman and settle down a while. Watch out for sharks.

Episode 48 — De-icing and the Redemption of Humanity

MadKing_0004And here we are, on the last episode of our first season. Welcome. This, I believe, is also our longest episode as well (something I could look up, but if you’ve been listening, you know . . . ).

We discuss many, many things in this episode, including a trip to Stonemaier Games’ Design Day event, United Airlines’ complete incompetence (save one beautiful soul) and a bunch of games played. Long reviews of Panamax and Castles of Mad King Ludwig included for your listening pleasure.

We do rant and ramble a bit, but we think some of it is quite entertaining, and Jim’s story of his ridiculously long journey back from St. Louis ends with hope for us all.
