Episode 54 — Meta Stable States of Positivity Loops and Other Feedback

Episode 54 — Meta Stable States of Positivity Loops and Other Feedback

lagoonHello and welcome to 2015, Punching Cardboard style! Well, an approximation of our style as we are admittedly a little off our game after this holiday break. I mean, we’re hustling all over the place, trying to make the plays, but it’s like the ball’s taking funny hops or something.

Anyway, forgive the extra long rules explanations as we delve into a couple of mid-weight, short-playing games: Akrotiri and Lagoon: Land of Druids.

Episode 46 — Card Drafting and Other Mishaps

Red7-1We spend some time with some lighter fare and end up running all over the place in this episode. Kickstarters delivered late. Over-priced games. Greed. Greed. Sushi Go wrongly compared with 7 Wonders (I mean, come on!). Games where red cards win. More 7s. Games with shoddy components. Etc.

Episode 44 — What’s 14 Hours Among Friends?

DeadofWinter-Welcome to episode 44, the episode in which we were going to discuss GMT’s Fire in the Lake.  Yup, we’re all set to get that one on tape, but circustances continue to prove they are far from within our control as Eric is stranded at work, and even though we’ve recruited our friend T.C. to join the fun, we are unable to get things rolling.

Plan B. Guest host? check. Other games to chat about? check. Electricity? check. Single malt whisky? check. Alrighty then, Fire in the Lake and COIN to be pushed back again. Fire up the chatter about Ars Victor, Dead of Winter and Here I Stand. Enjoy.

TIMELINE:

07:47 — Kickstarted games update
11:00 — Ars Victor
23:33 — Dead of Winter
42:15 — Here I Stand

Episode 16 — Too Long in the Wasteland: The Double Album Episode

agents_0016Firstly, we really like this episode and feel we were actually good this time out.  B, we apologize for the length as we were so busy being good that we ignored the timer we set to constrain ourselves. Well, not so much ignored the timer as spat right in its face.

In our longest episode to date (and hopefully ever) we announce our Game of Tournaments, review The Agents, and dissect the Kickstarter experience. We do a lot of dissection here.

So please enjoy our Scorsese director’s cut of a show and watch for our Game of Tournaments post announcing the 16 games that will be competing for the Unplaced Worker award.
