Episode 121 — A Procession of Excited Dogs

Episode 121 — A Procession of Excited Dogs

Here we are in the heart of the holiday season, starting to work off all that late November food while trying to navigate the December gifting maze. So, of course, let’s talk about some games.

We kick things off with an inconclusive discussion of An Infamous Traffic before moving forward to counteract the hustle of the season with session reports that further explore some of the games that have already graced this show. Add in a little bourbon and music and this cocktail might just be the cocktail you were looking for.

Episode 77 — The Nuance of Taste and Things Forgotten

Bountytown_0001Someone recently commented that our podcasts are almost as long as Wagner’s operas. Well, seeing as we take that as a challenge, this one’s epic! Sweeping! Cinematic! In 70 mm Technicolor!

After some short reviews and music talk, and ¬†spin-offs of Eric’s “When Things Went Bad” segments, we launch into our annual Essen preview. These are the games we’re hoping will take some money out of our pockets. Do we play it safe? Can we find something unique, something off the radar? And how many of these games will even be available to us?

Gotta say, this is a long one, but I sure enjoyed the listen while editing.
