Episode 87 — Why Are You Honking In Front Of My House At 3 AM?

IsleSkyeScotland or Japan? It’s the question on everyone’s minds. Who’s minds, you ask? Where ya been? No one’s talking about Kardashians or Trumps or hunky Canadian dudes who somehow get to run countries where people eat poutine and slide rocks across frozen, swept water. Nope, it’s all about a place full of craggy rocks and craggy people vs. the land of Hello Kitty and Karaoke.

And like Chris Hardwick after The Walking Dead we’re here to talk you through it, to lend support as you try to sort out your feelings about those places and some games based on them. It’s a tough one, too. Do you lightly follow a path through the windswept shores, rocky hills, and green pastures on The Isle of Skye in search of sheep and fine whisky, or do you build and run factories in Nippon, spreading your goods, and ships and trains out across the whole of Japan? Who knows? We don’t, but were gonna talk about it anyway.

Episode 83 — All Ramshackle and Worry Free

2015gamesJust because it’s a thing you do, we  offer up our 2nd annual discussion and ranking of the games we encountered for the first time this year, along with the best whisky and music enjoyed whilst playing.

You’ll hear thrilling descriptions of game from two lists, each 17 games long. Why 17? We don’t ask “why” here at the PCP, we merely forge ahead and trounce the Goblins. We also add in top fives (or more) in whisky and music. We suggest you sample the wares and create your own pairings.

Also, since this is a spoiler free time of year, individual games will not be listed in the times below. However, in the next few days we will post our lists in our BGG Guild (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/1805) which you will be able to peruse at your leisure.

SECTORS:

05:57 — Games 11-17 (or so), and disappoinments
40:48 — Whiskies of the Year
52:01 — Games 6-10 (or thereabouts)
90:16 — The Albums You Need to Hear
110:05 — Games 1-5 (exactly)
