They are then joined by the gaming legend that is Peter Gifford, AKA Universal Head, to talk about graphic design, rules summaries, and making "pew pew" noises when you play games.

You can find more from Peter on his excellent website The Esoteric Order of Gamers 


Like a bad penny Matthew Jude turns up once again, this time to talk to Mike about Gen Con, while Dan just sits and feels jealous about not going.

They also talk about botox, doggos, asking people on dates, and funko pops.

Don't forget to listen to Matthew's fantastic podcast Death by Monsters


In this episode Mike and Dan are joined yet again by the magnificent Derek Madlem, manager of The Game Preserve in Indianapolis, USA in order to talk about mucus membranes, wedding rings, and Last of the Summer Wine the board game.

They are then joined by Justin Jacobson from Restoration Games to talk about taking risks.


In this episode Mike and Dan are joined by Mark "the Cyclops" Cooke to talk about Skodas, vegan paninis, and the failings of the city of Bradford.

They also talk about organising Conventions, specifically Airecon in the UK, and the challenges and rewards of doing so.

Mark is a very important man indeed - being both the CEO of Hush Hush Projects  and also the organiser of Airecon.  He is also a cyclops.


In this episode of Sporadically Board Mike and Dan combat the accusations of the podcast never staying on topic by cunningly doing away with the concept of a topic entirely!  You can't stick to it if it doesn't exist!

They are however joined by their good friend Matthew Jude to talk about gut bacteria, Origins, the UK Games Expo, and Matthew's brand new podcast Death by Monsters


In this episode of Sporadically Board Mike and Dan talk about Dan's internet woes, cheating in board games, and board games for kids.  You will no doubt be very pleased to hear they do not talk about ticks or nipples.


We continue to be bothered by technical issues this episode, however all the gremlins in the world will not keep us from disclosing the torrid tales of horror that you will get to experience in this podcast.  

Not only are we joined by the co-designer of Altar Quest and the warhammer Quest Card Game, Brady Sadler, to talk about Dungeon Crawls, but we are also talking about bits of Dan's body that you probably were hoping would never be discussed.


We were plagued with technical issues this episode but we still managed to pump one out (this podcast is a proud member of the Dice Tower Network).

We are joined by Dr Max Davie, developmental paediatrician and host  of the Play Is The Thing podcast to talk about improvisation in games and also the seminar he is running on family gaming at the UK games expo 


In this episode Mike and Dan talk about classic 80's and 90's gameshows, flatulence, and ASMR.

They are also joined by Lizzy & Tom Mcgrevy-Shriver from the Drinking Meeple podcast to talk about different generations within gaming.  The conversation also strays into the area of inclusivity and representation.
