Beard Games Update

Less than 10 minute episode? This can’t be good. Did Connor get arrested for smuggling sets of dice into prison so convicts could play D&D? Did Nick get his beard caught in a Kegerator? Did Little Keith fall down a well? Nothing as silly as all that. We just couldn’t feasibly get an episode out this week and wanted to let you guys know. We’ve also got a bit of an update for you about what’s going on with our guest roster for upcoming episodes. Thanks for sticking with us and being...


Spooky Scary Game Design

Connor, Nick, and Keith finally get around to designing some horror games in this episode of Beard Games. Just in time for the scariest month of all. July! the boys have their work cut out for them. Will they survive the ghoulish onslaught of their own imaginations? Will they fall into insanity after being subjected to Connor’s “jokes”? Why do they all spend so long talking about fish? Find out today on Beard Games If you have any questions, comments, or mean things to say about Connor...


Super Smash Beards

The Beard Games Boys are back again without supervision, and things get a little rougher around the edges.

Not-So-Super Powers

Left to their own devices without a guest to keep them in check, the Beard Games Boys are back again with another super idea: what if they had super powers?

If you have any questions for Beard Games, or want to keep up to date with our nonsense followus on twitter: @BeardGamesCast or email us at:


Do Not Pass Go

It’s family game night this week on Beard Games! So you know what that means. More bad decisions. The crew is joined by hip hop artist Strag to make some children’s board games that probably won’t be very kid-friendly. We ask the burning questions this epsisode. Is it Chutes and Ladders or Snakes and Ladders? Can Connor make a game that doesn’t have weirdly dark undertones? Nick asks yet again, is Candy Land considered a game? (Spoiler alert: his stance hasn’t changed.) All that and more,...

Wheel of Terrible, Horrible, Idea Soup

There are some big changes coming to Beard Games in the next few weeks as we revisit the formula.

The current plan is to refocus around more general concepts and the quick pitches we give at the end of the epsiode, so please enjoy this massive 3-hour Super-cut of every “Wheel of This” quick pitch!


Beta To The Max

So About This Week…

The Beard On The Inside

The Beard Games crew is back with bellies full of topics to talk about after their Thanksgiving, here to talk about encounters, monsters, and how they’re put to use for good, bad, or plot! Nick may have had a bit too much to eat or drink, he sounds a little odd tonight…


Happy Thanksgiving From Beard Games

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Beard Games! As we’re all enjoying the holidays, there won’t be a Beard Games this coming week, but we’ll resume normal scheduling soon after!


Toad Spores

In today’s episode of Beard Games we happen upon an instance that happens only once in every 6 Blood Moons. All three of our hosts are playing the same game at the same time. Will Connor, Nick, and Keith have a great show with some quality discussion and jokes? Or will audio issues from Connor threaten to tear their friendship asunder? Probably the latter.


What’s This Show Again?

Something spoooooooky is happening on this episode of Beard Games as your hosts Connor, Keith, and Nick discuss the Horror Genre of games just in time for Halloween, and get badly off topic. Will they touch on such genre treasures as Silent Hill, Dead Space, or Betrayal at the House on the Hill? Of course not!
