Episode 95 — There Were Guys Before Napoleon

Episode 95 — There Were Guys Before Napoleon

NinaPintaWelcome to episode 95 of the ‘cast, another no-nonsense dissection of all things boardgaming. Right? Correct? Well, it is episode 95. I mean, you have to agree to that much. Really, you do. Okay fine. Still, it is an episode. It is.

Anyway, with Eric dividing his time between Patriots training camp and his historic run on the PGA tour, we welcome Marty back to the program for his second pinch-hit appearance. And we’re throwing some off-the-beaten-path games at him (and you). C’mon somebody, hit that nasty sinking curve!

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.
