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)

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!

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)

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
More
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
More
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)
