Episode 96 — James K. Polk was a Very Fine Barista

Episode 96 — James K. Polk was a Very Fine Barista

13daysEric’s back, and we’re taking old games, new albums, dead presidents and adjective-less baristas. We also discuss how the world could have ended in 1962 if we were in charge. But hey, we weren’t. So you’re welcome.

More fun than you can fit in your crawl space. Especially when you have at least 14 baristas down there.

COFFEE:

03:25 — Three Kingdoms Redux (session report)
34:58 — New Tunes (fea. Ryley Walker, Angel Olsen, Lisa Hannigan, Metallica, The Tragically Hip & more)
49:52 — The Wayback Machine — Our Hot Games of September 2014
63:53 — Baristas in the Crawl Space

Episode 53 — The First Time Ever I Saw Your Meeple

2014-12-21 16.33.55Well, it’s that time of year, the time when everyone climbs all over everyone else to get their Top 10 lists up and running. We’re no different here at the PCP, so we have some lists for you too. However, we are different enough to put a little spin on the exercise. So,  mainly because we’ve yet to play all the major 2014 releases, here are the top games we played for the first time in 2014.

Yeah, bet you didn’t see that coming.

Of course, rather than keep it simple, we throw other lists at you first: Disappointments, games that need to be played more, honorable mentions. In other words, we talk about a lot of games in this one. Help you somebody!

GENERAL TIMELINESS:

08:20 — What We’re Doing
09:00 — Friendless Stats
10:48 — Disappointments
26:27 — Need More Plays
44:35 — Honorable Mentions
64:17 — The Top 10 Games We Played For the First Time in 2014

Episode 43 — Review, Doom and Charity

Euphoria_0002Before we get to the games on the table this week we want to take a moment to let you know that from October 1st through October 8th we will be proud participants in the 2014 Stonemaier Charity Auction. Stonemaier Games will be auctioning off nine supreme copies of Euphoria, including extra bells and whistles like Game Trayz inserts, pairing each game with a different blogger/podcaster.

Each blogcaster will be choosing a charity which will receive at least 50% of the amount bid for that particular copy. The blogcaster with the largest amount bid will see the entire amount sent to it’s charity. The Charity we have chosen is the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation. The mission of this foundation is to ease suffering caused by mental illness, helping many who have fallen between the cracks. We encourage you to bid on this lovely game and support this work.

The auction link should be live sometime on October 1st. We have much more information about this on the podcast, and you can click the links above (or below) to find out even more. And keep an eye out for tweets to keep you updated as the week progresses.

We also get to some games, taking a first look at Spanish farming in La Granja and a full look at gun-fighting in the Doomtown corral. And we even discuss the reviewing of games in general, something sparked by recent reviews of a Kicstarter game called Lagoon. Follow the timeline below for all the goodness.

1:55 — Stonemaier Charity Auction
10:40 — La Granja
31:20 — Review Fight!
50:45 — Doomtown: Reloaded
