This week we talk with Alex Radcliffe of BoardGameCo about the value of games, making money with gaming, and his YouTube channel in general, which is great and you can find it at https://www.youtube.com/c/BoardGameCo Alex was a fantastic guest that gave Chris a run for his money, literally.  At least when it comes to games and why we should or shouldn't be spending so much money on them. Speaking of not spending money on games...

This week we are joined by Kitty's husband Spencer again to talk about role playing games that are NOT Dungeons and Dragons.  Why would you want to play anything besides D&D?  Turns out there are a lot of reasons, and we'll talk about some of them. Also, send us a request to join our 2021 giveaway because I have it on good authority that we'll be drawing more names sooooooon!

This week we look at the crowdfunding (Kickstarter and Gamefound) in it's current state, we then talk about what we look for in a campaign and why we might pass on a campaign.  And finally we try and figure out why some gamers, Fletcher, just aren't into crowdfunding in any way. We don't actually get into the future of crowdfunding as we promise at the beginning of the episode - but spoiler alert, it's only getting bigger.

This week we talk about the rules.  As they are written.  You know, the game because the game are the rules.  As written.  But when is it ok to ignore the rules as written?  Chris says whenever you want.  Other people (everyone?) disagree and say, "Play it right or don't play it at all!" - who's right?  Chris ofcourse.  (hmm, I wonder who writes these notes, and can these notes, as written, ever be wrong? No!   Paradox!!!?) OH! If you like our podcast, vote for us here: https://boardgamegeek.com/geekawards/boardgame

This week we talk about the amount of content in campaign or legacy games.  Are we getting to the point of, "whoa whoa, too much, pull back, enough, please no more!"  Or is it just fine?  How much is too much and what type of content is worth having more of?
