This week we're talking about how random setups in games can have unexpected consequences along with adding replay-ability and variability to our games.  And how this varies with competitive and co-op games.

This week Kitty is back, with some heavy news and a lighter topic.  Don't worry it's all good stuff.  We're talking about filler games!  And why they tend to be dismissed within the hobby as something you don't build a game night around.  But maybe we should give them a chance at the spotlight?  Or not. For when it matters, Kitty won and she liked it.  It'll make sense at the end. TGT Con 2: https://tabletop.events/conventions/tgt-con-2

Some people love it, some hate it, we talk about it.  What are the different ways games can using wagering (betting) in games and how does it change the focus of the game.  Could adding wagering to more games level the playing field between player levels by shifting the victory condition include more of knowing who is going to win and not just winning yourself?

We're back from the holidays and we talk all about our break.  And we talk about Great Western Trail.  And we talk about TGT Con 2.  And despite all that, it still seems like an off-topic episode.  A fun, off-topic, episode.

Last week we looked back at 2022, this week we look forward to 2023.  What games are we most looking forward to?  In Chris's case, what Kickstarter is he most looking forward to backing?  And even though this was recorded moments after our last episode, we somehow find some banter about something that happened between episodes.

This week we look back at the games we played in 2022.  What did we play the most?  Why?  Do games on BGA count?  (Of course they do!) And why, after 316 episodes, do we still flub the beginning of the show.  And more importantly, why after 316 episodes does Chris not fix our flubs in editing!?
