Episode 138 — A Game of Knots

Episode 138 — A Game of Knots

Whosoever pulleth this sword from this rock shall, um, I don’t know, do some stuff, vanquish some folks, and then become king of someplace. Right? 4th Century A.D., 5th?

We’re talking Pendragon: The Fall of Roman Britain here in episode 138. That, and a bit of list nonsense, and little dram of something nice as well.

No pillaging allowed!

Episode 128 — Everything is Temperamental at Best

Episode 128 — Everything is Temperamental at Best

Chaos. Uncertainty. Disloyalty. Keywords of the day. But we can handle it. We can fling Loyalty challenges across the table with the best of them. We can arrange a Renaissance marriages and take over religions and funnel coins from one bank to the next like it’s water flowing through pipes. Oh, yes we can. And then we can turn it all up to 11 and list the Euros that should remain on our shelves.

Yep, that’s all happening here in episode 128.

Episode 127 — Stout Rusted Trains

No one’s going to accuse us of following the cult of the new in this one. We talk about a couple older games that have hit the tables around here while shaming ourselves about a good number of titles collecting dust on our shelves. Our whiskey’s been nicely aged as well (Unfortunately, the fine salted caramel stout decided to collide with some rusted trains).

So, tip your servers and enjoy the session, and please, please, please, don’t spill your beer.

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

Episode 23 — Live at Budokan: The Solo Album

Sekigahara_0008I am a Samurai warrior, going it alone for episode 23. ¬†One must do what one has to in order to keep to schedule, and I must talk to myself for 30 minutes (I can’t believe I went on for 30 Minutes).

Anyway, what follows is a fairly comprehensive review of Sekigahara: The Unification of Japan. Enjoy.
