Episode 57 — Mythical Creatures Eat Our Lunch.

scoville_0100We spend a lovely day out on the farm, wandering the fields and picking packs of yellow, red, blue, green orange, black, white, brown, some clear glittery, and (I won’t alliterate anymore) peppers. We’re in Scoville, USA and we’re making chili.

We also talk the best music from 2014, our Kickstarter habits, game addiction, and upcoming cons. Uh-oh, Eric’s eyes are watering. He must have forgotten to wash his hands after handling his peppers.

WalledCity_0001Takin’ the heavy down a notch or four from last week, we’re controlling areas in Londonderry and rollin’ bones in space for episode 56. Still, there’s plenty of meat in these titles, and plenty of flavor bringing us back for more.

Thank you, sir, may I have another?

Arkwright_0002Welcome to Episode 55, the Director’s cut. Yup, this is a long one. To be fair, We are covering the mammoth known as Arkwright, and we devote well over an hour to this beast alone. We also drink a little Jameson and sew a few quilts just to keep ourselves honest. Might be a rant in there too (just a little one).

Episode 54 — Meta Stable States of Positivity Loops and Other Feedback

lagoonHello and welcome to 2015, Punching Cardboard style! Well, an approximation of our style as we are admittedly a little off our game after this holiday break. I mean, we’re hustling all over the place, trying to make the plays, but it’s like the ball’s taking funny hops or something.

Anyway, forgive the extra long rules explanations as we delve into a couple of mid-weight, short-playing games: Akrotiri and Lagoon: Land of Druids.

02:40 — Redbreast 15 Year-old Irish Pure Pot Still
08:48 — Game Trayz
18:00 — Akrotiri (review)
