Episode 128 — Everything is Temperamental at Best

Episode 128 — Everything is Temperamental at Best

Chaos. Uncertainty. Disloyalty. Keywords of the day. But we can handle it. We can fling Loyalty challenges across the table with the best of them. We can arrange a Renaissance marriages and take over religions and funnel coins from one bank to the next like it’s water flowing through pipes. Oh, yes we can. And then we can turn it all up to 11 and list the Euros that should remain on our shelves.

Yep, that’s all happening here in episode 128.

Episode 124 — Throat Frogs & Turmeric

On Episode 124 of As the Cardboard Turns: Joe continues to show off his quick thinking with his ability to jab and dance and commentate. In addition, we a treated to a stellar performance of the word turmeric. Meanwhile, right in front of your ears, Jim loses his battle to a nasty cold.

Will the headhunters come calling to offer Joe a better gig on a more prestigious show? Will Jim’s battle against the evil Mucus be for naught?

Episode 122 — Inventory Replays

Episode 122 — Inventory Replays

We made it. 2017 is heading out the door. We’re battered and beaten and bruised and bewitched and bespoke and bee-stung and help me off this ride. Phew!

But before we go, here’s a bunch of stuff we dug in 2017. We’re talkin’ games and whiskey and whisky and tunes and food and beer and a whole lot of other things in this episode. We take a swipe at a few things, but we mostly go for the good stuff as we sneak off to 2018, hoping that if it doesn’t hear us we can find a little more peace and joy in that neck of the woods. Anyway, please enjoy our year-end extravaganza. We’ll see you on the other side.

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.
