18 | Root First Impressions (Toast Warriors)

10/9/2018
More
If you’ve been within 10 miles of any board game media over the past several months, you have undoubtedly heard of Root, a game of war and direct conflict disguised by the most adorable meeples you’ve ever seen. Seriously – we never thought, in 2018, we could be wow’d by meeples, but these somehow are the … Continue reading 18 | Root First Impressions (Toast Warriors)

16 | Viticulture (Just Add Wine)

9/11/2018
More
With a podcast called “Cardboard and Wine”, it was just a matter of time before we discussed Viticulture. In this episode, we dive deep into our thoughts on this gorgeous wine-themed game. We also spend some time comparing and contrasting Viticulture with the subject of our last episode, Vinhos. In addition, we share our favorite … Continue reading 16 | Viticulture (Just Add Wine)

15 | Vinhos (The “Other” Wine Game)

8/27/2018
More
Having a podcast called “Cardboard and Wine”, we often get asked when we are going to review Viticulture. Well, not this week (that’s next week’s show), but instead we take a deep dive into the “other” wine-themed game (that actually came first), Vinhos by Vital Lacerda. Like a fine Cabernet Sauvignon, Vinhos is beautifully complex, … Continue reading 15 | Vinhos (The “Other” Wine Game)

14 | The Mind and Illusion (Why Didn’t I Think of That?)

8/13/2018
More
The Mind – is it a game? an activity? an experience? an experiment? It’s a game… it’s definitely a game. But with that out of the way, is the insane amount of buzz for such a simple card game justified? With the imminent Pandasaurus release of The Mind here in the United States, we place … Continue reading 14 | The Mind and Illusion (Why Didn’t I Think of That?)

13 | New York Slice (Don’t Play When Hungry)

7/31/2018
More
We love a good theme, and New York Slice by Bézier Games may be the best, most thorough implementation of theme in a board game that we’ve seen. In this case, it’s pizza! From the awesome, photorealistic pizza tiles (thin slice, of course), to the menu rulebook, to the guest check scorepad, it’s pizza from … Continue reading 13 | New York Slice (Don’t Play When Hungry)

11 | NMBR 9 (THS GM S FN)

7/1/2018
More
The best way to highlight how we feel about NMBR 9 is we decided to buy it about halfway through our first play with a friend’s copy. At least two other friends we have introduced it to have also gone out and purchased their own. So I guess don’t listen to this episode if you’re … Continue reading 11 | NMBR 9 (THS GM S FN)

6/17/2018

We love our weekly game group, and we love winding down our day with a two player board game before bed. However, there’s just something special about getting away for a long weekend of board gaming with friends. In this week’s show, Josh gives a recap of his gaming getaway weekend in the mountains. Games … Continue reading 10 | Board Game Getaways (Fireflies, Dice Rolls, and Train Games)

More
You are a spice trader along the famed Spice Road, risking your life and fortune to trade two red cubes for a green and three yellows. Ok, so Century: Spice Road is a game where you collect cubes, which you trade in for better cubes, which you use to claim victory points. Typical Euro stuff … Continue reading 9 | Century: Spice Road (Trading Cubes for Other Cubes)

8 | Gaia Project (A Game of Currencies)

5/20/2018
More
Terra Mystica in space! Whether that’s a good thing or not depends on how you feel about Terra Mystica or whether you’ve played it at all. It is tempting to avoid comparison altogether, though the designers have gone so far as to subtitle Gaia Project, “A Terra Mystica Game”. Which actually begs the question – … Continue reading 8 | Gaia Project (A Game of Currencies)

7 | Kingdomino (Extra Shiny Tiles)

5/4/2018
More
Kingdomino won the Spiel des Jahres – Game of the Year – in 2017, but is it any fun for our KIDS? Is it any fun for our heavy gaming FRIENDS? Is it any fun for US? Spoiler alert: yes, yes, and YES! This game is super fun. We love it more than we probably … Continue reading 7 | Kingdomino (Extra Shiny Tiles)

6 | Azul (The Literal Tile-Laying Game)

4/18/2018
More
Are you an attention seeker? Then setup a game of Azul in your local coffee shop and see what happens. This game is gorgeous on whatever table you prefer to play on. The tiles, the boards, even the bag. But beautiful components a good game does not make. Is Azul a quality GAME? On this … Continue reading 6 | Azul (The Literal Tile-Laying Game)

5 | Top Five Games We Discovered in 2017 (Actually, Top 6!)

4/7/2018

It’s our first Listicle™ episode! Last year was a formative year of gaming for us; we played loads of new games and filled in our collection from the gaming gap brought on by graduate school and having babies. Even though it’s already April, we discuss our favorite “new to us” board games of 2017. It … Continue reading 5 | Top Five Games We Discovered in 2017 (Actually, Top 6!)

It’s Gloomhaven. What more can be said about the 7th Wonder of the World… or at least the 7th game ever to hit #1 on Board Game Geek? Well, we’ll take a half hour or so and see what we can add to the conversation. There are many things to enjoy about Gloomhaven: the extensively … Continue reading 4 | Gloomhaven (Adventures in Plano Boxes)

3 | Lost Cities (Handshakes and Shuffling Bliss)

3/8/2018

Way back in 2006, we placed our first board game order. Yesterday we received another game order in the mail, and we still get just as excited twelve years later to cut the shrink wrap off and punch out brand news games as we did way back when! In that very first game order was … Continue reading 3 | Lost Cities (Handshakes and Shuffling Bliss)

2 | Pandemic Legacy (Do We Toss it in the Trash Now?)

2/22/2018
More
If binge-watching Netflix had a homolog in the board game world, it would be Pandemic Legacy. I mean, it’s even called “Season 1”, so besides providing obvious forecasting of intentions to continue monetizing the Pandemic cash cow, the title invites you to jump in and consume. Consume we did. In this episode, we provide our … Continue reading 2 | Pandemic Legacy (Do We Toss it in the Trash Now?)

1 | Sagrada (Fun with Grozing Pliers)

2/16/2018

It’s not every day that we’re drawn to a game JUST because of how it looks on the table, but Sagrada was one of those games. The dice and player boards are stunning, but does the gameplay live up to the flashy components? We discuss, this week on the show! The star of the show … Continue reading 1 | Sagrada (Fun with Grozing Pliers)
