What problem has ever been solved by "Less power"? No important one, that's for sure. This week, we play the Home Improvement board game, where players roll, move, and grunt their way through the magical world of drywall, circuit testers, and subjective answers to trivia questions. It's a game that combines a little bit of Talisman, a little bit of Monopoly, and a whole lot of home improvement (the activity, not the sitcom). Who will be the first to capture the crown of command complete their jobs in the project house? Plus: which panelist is dreamier than Jonathan Taylor Thomas?

Tonight, despite crazy thunder storms we recorded our Gen Con 2013 recap show. We go day by day and give insight into what we did , what we played and how we liked many games from Gen Con. It's a good look into the craziness that is 4 of the best days in gaming every year. Watch out for the LOUD clap of thunder which scared the bejesus out of us at about the 1 hour mark. We also announce the winner of our Cool Stuff Inc contest. Thanks for listening!

What do you get when you combine rubber bands, six sided dice, and The Prisoner's Dilemma? The Olympics, of course! This week, we're playing the Bruce Jenner Decathlon game from 1979! This vintage Parker Brothers title features Olympic Gold Medalist turned Kardashian stepfather Bruce Jenner guiding you through a magical journey through 10 track and field events which play out suspiciously like the same 3 mini-games repeated over and over again. Flick plastic discs at rubber bands and exercise your basic arithmetic skills on your way to the Gold!

Tonight we get a little informal of a chat where we try and give you what we will Demo at Gen Con this year and what we want to Buy this year at gen con. It's a pair of fantastic top 11 lists (b/c everything is better to 11!). Chris and Dan are joined by Darrell Louder (who had to leave early) and the fine hair of TC Petty III (Who had to show up late). Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy this on your way to Gen Con 2013!

We hope you've brought your Cliff's Notes, because this week's episode is about Pride and Prejudice: The Board Game! Based on the timeless Jane Austen novel which celebrates its 200th anniversary this year, this roll and mover pits players against each-other in a 19th century smackdown to find out who is the king and queen of regency life. Listen as the Flip the Table panel fails miserably to understand anything about Pride and Prejudice, guessing blindly at trivia questions about the novel as we flail our way to the church by exact count to win the game.

We talk to Dan about his history of gaming and becoming a store owner as well as his transition into fullfillment and what they are doing of late to help the newer and smaller game publishers out there. As for Mr.
