But, possibly more importantly Dan is launching his charity appeal for his humiliating dance-a-thon!  For more details on it or to donate then go here:



We discovered half way through this episode that it's Sporadically Board's 1st anniversary!  Which makes it even more tragic that it's such a shambles.


In this episode Mike and Dan talk about.... 

Well to be honest I've forgotten exactly what we talk about in the first bit as I edited that part yesterday and it was of such little consiquence that it's already gone out of my head.  Safe to say it probably wasn't board games.


In this episode Mike and Dan talk about Pizza, living with teenagers, and 

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. 


In this episode Mike and Dan talk about steroids, passports, and vomit.  

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
