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)

Episode 68 — Get to Zero and End in Shame

PolisToday we head back in time, and without the help of a TARDIS.

We drink some finely aged Scotch and discuss a finely aged band, and then we dart back to the beginning of the 20th Century and explore the great age of yellow journalism. But it all still seems so modern, so we head for the way way back machine and go play with a couple of ancient civilizations in the Mediterranean.

It’s just all so historical. Maybe more than we can fathom, but we go anyway, because it’s what we do. Come along for the ride.

HISTORIES:

05:20 — Ardbeg Uigeadail
12:03 — The Waterboys, Modern Blues
19:36 — Baseball Highlights Expansion News
22:37 — Penny Press (impressions)
45:20 — Polis: Fight for the Hegemony (in-depth)
107:10 — Fight the Power!!
