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 80 — Looking for Strudel in Seattle (Part A, the First)

Lignum_0001Despite the prospect of ever orbiting schedules we have somehow collided for a long moment to record another installment of As the Podcast Turns, Essen edition. Yea us! In fact, what we recorded was so long that this will be the first of two concurrent releases today. And yeah, we know you know how to use the pause button, but it actually makes the editing job easier.

Last week we attended a small con in Bellevue that focuses on getting the most recent Essen releases to the table. A couple hundred folks attend and there seems to be at least one copy of each Essen title available to play. Much cheaper and more intimate than a trip to Germany

Between us we put in over 80 hours playing our most anticipated games. We then rushed home through a torrential downpour to tell you about it (or was it to get soaked taking our kids out Halloween night?). Anyway, sit back and enjoy the first half of our Essen game coverage. Maybe grab some strudel while you’re at it.
