This week Chris makes us talk about game theory stuff again.  We look at what the game loop is, the different levels you find them, and why they matter.  Also we had a special guest show up for a minute.

This week we try and figure out why so many games seem like they weren't play tested enough?  Why is it so hard to play test games and work out the bugs before they get published.  Also Kitty is salty that Chris broke Wingspan.

This week Spencer joins us to fill in for Fletcher while we talk about Fantasy Football.  What is it?  How does it work? Why do people play it? And is it really just like a board game? Even if you have no interest in football at all, we think you'll still enjoy this one. Oh and there's a bonus song at the end of the episode.  To see the video (and you should) click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoZ0bWnesYk

Audio note: The audio in this episode isn't up to our normal standards.  Chris will explain at the beginning, that said... This week marks our 300th episode which we recorded at the end of our first TGT Con (an online con run on Discord and BGA).  We'll recap the con, announce some winners and then move on to our main topic... Comfort games.  This is one of those rare top 5 episodes.  So if you want to know what our favorite comfort games are, bare with the audio and listen on...

This week Sydnie joins us to talk about KeyForge and SolForge Fusion. Two unique deck games go in... who will come out on top? We don't know, but we're going to talk about where these games have been, where they are now, and where they want to go.  As a bonus, is there a place for uniqueness in more traditional board games?   https://solforgefusion.com https://keyforging.com Register for TGT Con: TGT Con Registration
