Episode 116 — The 2017 Essen Session With Heavy Cardboard

Episode 116 — The 2017 Essen Session With Heavy Cardboard

Welcome to our annual get-together with the fine folks over at Heavy Cardboard. It takes us a while to get into the meat of the episode as our planned 15 minute intro turned into an easygoing conversation with some unexpected insights into the thoughts and feelings behind these endeavors.

So, this is an epic show, a way-too-many-games discussed show, and some might argue a way-too-long show. But when you’re having a good time, time flies, and we thoroughly enjoyed this session. We hope you concur.

Episode 115 — The Dynamic Range of Human Disaster

Okay kids, I think this is a good one. A little giddiness, a little edginess. Three game session reports that press our buttons and invite some good critical analysis. Add in two albums that we’ve been waiting to sink our teeth into and it’s easy for us to raise this discussion to 11. Enjoy the show.
