Episode 193 — Cramps and Calluses

Episode 193 — Cramps and Calluses

Hey kids, it’s No-fun February, 2021 edition. And this February has been the most No-fun in years.

We’ve got your ice storms and power outages and never-ending pandemics and Criminal Orange-men still on the loose. All that and so much more.

However, rebels that we are, we try and make something out of this mess and talk some games, both video and board. We discuss some music and get back on track with the books. And yeah, yeah, we also gripe about and question everything else under the pandemic soaked sun. We are who we are after all.

Welcome to the fun-house! Enjoy all the mirrors.

Episode 149 — Stupid and Doomed

We execute all the plans we never had. Rather, we have no plan and decide to abandon the plan we don’t have. In other words, this one is just a loose conversation touching on a slew of games, a couple artful albums, and a damn fine dram of whisky.

Enjoy.
