Hail whatforth yonder Paladin! Join us in our epic quest of moving up tracks and suchforthnot. We're reviewing Paladins of the West Kingdom by Garphil Games. Also, we discuss the mechanism of loans in games, and talk about the show Gravity Falls. Hope y'all enjoy!

Let's talk income, and the games that use them well. Also, we'll discuss a little calendar coincidence, and lastly review Ecos 1st Continent by AEG. It's what you'd expect from an episode of meeple overboard, dashing adventures, rescuiing princesses from a castle, and lions eating sharks!  Enjoy.

2018 was simpler times. We were young, dumb, and in love. And now we're older, dumb and in love. But at least  now we've got two years of time to look back on some of these games and talk about how we feel about them now!  Check out our thoughts on Photosynthesis and Charterstone ...with a little bit of Hindsight!

Ocassionally you get to sit down with a legend like one of the great designers of the last 20 years. Rob Daviau is behind games like Risk and Pandemic Legacy, Cthulhu Death May Die, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Star Wars Qieens Gambit, and Cars 2 Operation. He's here to discuss a little about the new game from Restoration Games, Return to Dark Tower and the ridiculous process it was to make that game happen. It'll be coming to Kickstarter on January 14th, so enjoy learning about this beast of a game.

Ahoy all, sorry this is posted late, but apparently there was an issue when we first uploaded. So, enjoy our annual Q&A episode, even if it is a little after Christmas.  Oh well, we're having a lot of fun. Enjoy!

It's probably time to post up our Monthly Ketchup for November 2019!  November started with a little Disney+, and ended with a lot of Disney+.  Magically we still got some sweet sweet gaming in.  Give 'er a listen!

What would Rise up Shepherd and Follow sound like if it were performed by some weird mix of Green Day and Bad Religion? Give it a listen, and enjoy our traditional weirdo version of a Christmas song for the year!  Merry Christmas, and happy holidays!

Dominion, the original deck building game that is over 10 years old.  Why bother reviewing it? Because old beloved games deserve attention too. Why not go into a deep dive of a game we've played for a decade. I bet we have some decent thoughts on it. Also, we watched Hobbs and Shaw without having seen all 28 prior Fast and Furious movies, so we review that too. We have probably have less insight on that, but it was a movie. Oh boy it certainly was a movie. Hope you enjoy our thoughts.

Reviewing older games? But why? Because we're awesome, that's why! Tzolk'in the Mayan Calendar is a classic from 2012 and we discuss why we still love it and have it in our collection. Whistle Stop is a fun game from 2 years ago, and we discuss why this one isn't still in our collection. We also discuss the state of nice board game components, and why they may not exactly do it for us. Hope y'all enjoy!

No, you go first.  No, YOU go first!  No, you go first.  Wait, why did Billy take the first-player spot?  Dangit, now I'm last!  Let's talk about variable turn order, dive way to deep into a childrens cartoon show, and ultimately review Silver and Gold, a new roll and write game by excellent designer Phil Walker-Harding. Happy American Thanksgiving, and enjoy the episode.
