Week 14!

Panamax

There seems to be a blank spot towards the end of the podcast, lasts about 1 minute, not sure what I did or why it happened. I do talk a bit after for another minute or so, my apologies!

A bit of another rambly episdode tonight, but I did try my hand at a little bit of editing. I am going to have to record this a bit earlier in the evening though if I am going to edit the entire show as that eats up almost double the recording time. Another lesson learned!!

Talk a bit about Panamax, Kerensa and I got another match up of that in, we played some Project Dreamscape, the new Kickstarter from Will and Sarah Reed, played some more Cash n Guns and some One Night Ultimate Werewolf.

Talk a little about how my digital gaming helped fill some voids this week, and talk a little about a game that frustrates the heck out of me but I keep coming back because I love it even though I am not that good at it.

BGG talk, convention talk, I ran the gambit here this evening!

Thanks for listening everyone, hope you all have a fantastic week!!

Project Dreamscape Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/undine/project-dreamscape-a-dream-chaining-card-game

I did forget to mention one other Kickstarter that I backed, but we’ll hit on that next week so I can do it justice. It’s something a bit different for me, but it is board game related so not too far out there.

Week 13!!

Scoville

This week I hosted a game day at our house, which is a rarity, got a few new to us games played including Hollywood, Baseball Highlights: 2045, Roll for the Galaxy and some old favorites such as 7 Wonders and Cash n Guns. Also got a first play of Scoville in with Kerensa and she and I played our first game of Panamax and I got STOMPED!

Talk about three Kickstarter games going right now, Floating Market, Age of Empires III and Ghostbusters.

Then the BGG talk of a geeklist that has arisen from the ashes, our WDYPTW Geeklist and Ignacy Trzewiczek’s Blog post about shortening podcasts.

That just about covers it! Thank you all for listening, it really means everything that there is someone out there. Be sure spread the word about the podcast, the more people hear about us, the more fun things we can possibly do in the future.

Week 12!!!

Deus

This week I talk about a few games that we played, Fidelitas, Myrmes, Deus, Machi Koro(again), Three Little Pigs and Sheriff of Nottingham.

Also bring up a couple extra items, like how uncomfortable I am with going to new board game groups sometimes, especially when timing seems to be an issue and I can’t get a game with new people.

Mention the possibility of an online board game meetup on BGA and a possible contest among other ramblings.

I hope this episode was better than last weeks as I still haven’t managed to listen to last week’s episode, I am fearful of it. 🙂

Thanks for listening!!!!

Week 11!!!

Sheriff and Fidelitas

Going to apologise up front for this one seeming a bit scatter brained, that’s kind of how I felt while recording. I didn’t have a lot of time this week to put down my thoughts onto paper so I could put them into a more coherent style, but I signed up to do a weekly podcast, so here it is.

This week the games played are Kakerlaken Poker, Machi Koro, Fidelitas, Sherrif of Nottingham and Cash n Guns 2nd Ed.

Also talk a little about what caught my eye in the geeklist, I promise next week I’ll have a more well put together section on the geeklist, as it was I had read everyones list, just hadn’t had a lot of time to go over one in general to see if one stood out to talk to, they all had fantastic games in them.

Mention the Forged in Steel Kickstarter which at the time of recording was $3600 over it’s funding goal, hopefully that was due to the listeners here and we were inching closer to the 19,000 stretch goal which is a fantastic looking Steel die.

Thank you all for listening, in December we had 711 downloads, in January we bumped that up to 1,017!! That’s unbelievable to me, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Week 10!!!

This week was a bit light on gaming, but it seems a bit heavy on rambling, sorry, not sure how I stretched this out to a 28 minute long podcast, but I did.

This week we’ll talk a little bit about Red 7, DC Deck Builder Game, Scoville, Colonial:Europe’s Empires Overseas, San Juan and Castles of Mad King Ludwig.

I discuss my 2015 Vow of Solidarity with fellow BGG’er Steven O’Dhea and a bit about a Kickstarter that I think could use a bit of help.

Along with that, I ramble a bit about an upcoming segment I would like to host on the show and my future desire to have fellow gamers on the show somehow, but first, I have to learn how to pull that off.

Thank you all for listening once again, it really does mean the world to me. I like to talk, but if you folks aren’t listening, who would know, haha. I’ll see you all on the Geeklist!!!

Week 9!!!

Can you believe it’s Week 9 and that I’ve made it this long?!?! I hope you all are enjoying this as much as I am, or at least close to as much as I am.

This week I talk about a few games that we’ve been playing, including Red 7, Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Medina(again), Apples to Apples, a PnP Unpub Prototype and Stack Up!

Talk a bit about The Long View Podcast this week, the Punching Cardboard Podcast, Shut Up and Sit Down and the 20 Minutes of Filler Podcast and their announcement of a game that I am really anxious to learn more about, Best Tree House Ever.

I also give my inital review of the Game of 49 a fun lighter weight auction game where you are vying to get 4 in a row.

Don’t forget to go vote for the 2014 Picture of the Year on BGG!! https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/185590/item/3677452#item3677452

Thank you all for listening, it means the world to me and I’ll see you in the geeklist!

Week 8!!!

Just me flying solo tonight to talk about a few games we played on this slow recovery week. Getting caught back up with work and cleaning and planning for my youngest daughter’s 5th birthday party kind of put the kibbosh on much gaming. But we did do some, or else I’d be hard pressed to talk about anything.

Tajemnicze Domostwo/Mysterium, Dead of Winter, Diamonds, Star Realms and Council of Verona.

Podcasts talked about-Heavy Cardboard, The State of Games and Geek All Stars

Week 7!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Lots of games over the week to talk about and Kerensa even makes the first of what we hope is many appearances. I talk about a couple of Geeklist Challenges on BGG that are going on that I am taking part in and why.

We talk a bit about the Timeline Series of games, Kakerlaken Poker(still hitting the table), Medina(this time with 2 players), Five Tribes, Mysterium, Black Fleet, Masters Gallery(the Modern Art version), Hanabi and Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective(no spoilers).

Week 6!!!

Sub 15 minute episode this week as Kerensa and Gabby were to ill to join in the fun which is what I had planned to fill in some time, so instead you get to hear me talk about the games we played and a bit of what I hope to play in the coming week.

Talk a bit about Kakerlaken Poker, Medina, Pounce/Jerk, Mysterium and Cards Against Humanity.

Also talk a bit about wanting to review a game in an upcoming episode and I think that game will be Medina, if I can get some more plays under my belt. I was quite taken with this abstract, but I’m not sure Gabby & Kerensa were sold on it as much as I, but we’ll see.

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas Holiday, if you don’t celebrate Christmas I hope you had a fantastic week just as well. And I hope that everyone has a fantastic New Year.

I’ll be back next week!!

Week 5!!!

Shorter episode this week, been busy getting ready for Christmas and also with Christmas gatherings. Played some fun games this week including Scotland Yard, The Game of 49, Guillotine, Diamonds and Tajemnicze Domostwo. Nice range of games for us.

Talk a bit about the 10×10 Challenge and how I feel about it looking back after a year and whether I want to try it again next year. Also going to try to finish the statistics for it in the coming months and also announce the Geek Gold winner of the writing contest for the Challenge.

I tried to get Kerensa to join me tonight but she was too tired, and you’ll hear that in this episode. I am hoping at the beginning of the year I’ll be confident and knowledgeable enough to actually edit this podcast instead of making it one long random stream of thought, but until then, your stuck with my babbling.

Thank you all for everything, I forgot to mention it at the beginning of the podcast but last week’s Anticipated Games cast went beyond my dreams, LibSyn reported 229 downloads of last week’s episode. I know that can be a bit skewed, but still it felt fantastic to see that many people listening! So thank you all from the bottom of my heart!!

I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas week! Hope we all get to have fun with our families and friends.

I’ll be back next week!!
