Episode 106 — Reggie and Emily’s Excellent Adventure

Episode 106 — Reggie and Emily’s Excellent Adventure

Welcome to an episode filled with old games and some special guests. Edward and Amanda from Heavy Cardboard join in as we discuss how to get old games back to the table. And after a day of gaming here at Punching Cardboard headquarters, we unleash a session report covering the three underrated titles that ended up on our table. To be honest, we weren’t even planning to play these games.

In this episode we leave the cult of the new outside in the rain and rediscover (or discover) some titles that should be getting a little more love. We hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did making it.

Episode 42 — It’s Not Your Game, It’s Our Deficiency

Suburbia_0007-2What’s wrong with us?

In opposition to those poorly received games we like, our guilty pleasures, there must be games that are well-loved and critically acclaimed which elude our ability to enjoy. Right? Surely.

We spend the Lion’s share of this episode discussing games that, despite their acknowledged goodness, one of us is unable to like. It was a fun, maddening discussion, and we hope you’ll enjoy it, or at least tell us why we’re wrong. Because we are wrong.  Very, Very wrong.
