Episode Thirteen - Live at Virtually Expo

Today?s episode is a little different. We recorded this one live as part of Virtually Expo, the online only version of UK Games Expo. Since we had a very strict one hour time slot, we had to truncate our longer format and revert to our previous ?here?s three games we played, let?s talk about them? version of the podcast. Ah, but what games were discussed in this episode you might ask? Here?s a list with some time-stamps that will work perfectly with the video version and will be a little early for the audio one: Project Elite ( 4:27 ) Escape Room in a Box: Flashback ( 16:43 ) Oath ( 28:26 )

Episode Twelve - Targi and Targi: The Expansion

If someone had said to me I?d be able to visit a Tokyo fish market, a quaint English village green, New York, and Sherlock Holmes all in one day I?d have thought they were doing a silly. But you can - and from the comfort of your own living room - by listening to our latest podcast episode. And who knows, maybe in the future we?ll really be able to visit all these places in a day - or at least go to the pub again.

Episode Seven - Hot Steamy Clouds

There are days when I am convinced of the magical nature of our podcast. Today is one of those days. Somehow we have managed to squeeze three very big games into what amounts just the same length of podcast. From a physics standpoint this is clearly impossible - and let?s face it - telling you how we do it would be giving away a very big industry secret. But by Jove, I think we've got it. Age of Steam: ( 04:35 ) - In theory, reprints of classic games are incredibly exciting because here?s a chance for people to rediscover something that was clearly good enough to be propelled by the industry for that long. In practice, imagine the dread of the reviewer when they realise that maybe this much beloved classic is? well. Let?s just leave it at that for now. You?ll have to listen to the podcast itself for more. Tainted Grail: ( 22:23 ) - Oh no! It?s 7th Continent all over again. But grimdark! Long time viewers will know that that much beloved game did not sit well with these beloved reviewers inspite of its popularity. Is there more to this different spin on the genre of a giant map full of choose your own adventure hotspots and survival mechanisms? That?s what we?re here to talk about. Cloudspire: ( 44:30 ) - Remember when you used to say things like ?light as a cloud?? Well, forget about it because Cloudspire comes in at a hefty ten kilograms of neoprene matts, poker chips and custom dice in this voluptuous board game take on the MOBA genre of video games. With a ruleset that prompted this genuine response from your favourite podcast host. Mailbag: ( 1:00:48 ) - Listener Lambert sent in a swarm of questions about our time with Gloomhaven. We were perhaps a touch too brief in answering them, but everything has good reasons. Want to send us a question? Fire it to [email protected] Want to leave a comment? Visit us at

Episode Three - Eighteen Sofa Wars

Alert! Alert! The sofas have run amok and it is up to our heroes, Efka and Elaine, to put all the sofa pieces back together. What treasures will we find in the crevices? What hidden board game gems are gathering dust under those pillows? Star Wars: Outer Rim ( 03:55 )- How did an ENTIRE galaxy get lost in the folds of our sofa? We will never find out, but at least we can tell you if this Star Wars themed bimble bimbled our fancy. Undaunted: Normandy ( 17:44 ) - The definitive accent pillow of today's podcast is this WW2 themed deck builder. And here?s us telling you why we think it's great and? why Efka just doesn't get on with it. 1846 ( 34:16 ) - Rounding out our game discussion is the one game that is definitely bigger than any sofa - 1846, which is just one flavour of the multifaceted genre of 18xx games.

Episode One - Arkwright The Hedgehog

In our very first episode we talk about such dangerous games as: Concordia: Venus - bringing you the terror of the mighty Roman Empire and never knowing the right time to tribune.

Arkwright - giving Elaine the heebie jeebies with it?s theme of British industrialism, a.k.a - what is it that the British have done again?
