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 127 — Stout Rusted Trains

Episode 127 — Stout Rusted Trains

No one’s going to accuse us of following the cult of the new in this one. We talk about a couple older games that have hit the tables around here while shaming ourselves about a good number of titles collecting dust on our shelves. Our whiskey’s been nicely aged as well (Unfortunately, the fine salted caramel stout decided to collide with some rusted trains).

So, tip your servers and enjoy the session, and please, please, please, don’t spill your beer.

Episode 83 — All Ramshackle and Worry Free

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)
