Episode 75 – The Baron of Abstraction, The King of Contraband

Episode 75 – The Baron of Abstraction, The King of Contraband

baronyHere at Punching Cardboard headquarters there is always the difference between what plans are made and what plans are realized. Here it is, our 75th show. The plan was to record something a little out of the ordinary for episode 75; the realization is our typical fare with some humor, conversation and opinions on games, whisky and music.

Still, we think that’s pretty good. After all, we wouldn’t have made it to episode 75 if we didn’t feel we were doing good things, and we wouldn’t have kept going if you all weren’t listening (Yep, we’re throwing you guys under the bus).

So if you’ve been around for a good while, thanks for putting our ‘cast into your rotation. And if you’re just coming to the party, welcome. We hope you’ll all stay on board for this ride. We may not record too many special episodes over the next 75, but we’ll probably realize 75 more episodes. Just imagine, Episode 150 — Caverna 2: the Agricola Field Recordings! (remastered edition). You know you want it. So do we. Let’s have fun together.

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

Mainly we discuss what everyone in the know already knows about Mage Knight, but we do it in a charming and entertaining fashion.  Just go with it.
