This week we talk about logic "games" - or puzzles as most people would call them.  It's not really a puzzles vs. games episode at all though, instead we talk about what makes logic puzzles so interesting and why we keep playing them in spite of the fact they kind of feel like homework. The puzzle book Kitty mentioned: https://www.amazon.com/Montague-Island-Mysteries-Other-Puzzles/dp/145491...

This week we take a look at what makes players so bad.  From game play to etiquette, we talk about ourselves and what makes us such bad players.  And we may talk about players that aren't ourselves as well.

This week we talk a lot about Wordle (the first half of the show) and then switch to talking about what to do with those games you just want to throw away.  We also mention a few different links in this episode so here are those: If you want to play archived Wordle puzzles, you can find them here: https://www.devangthakkar.com/wordle_archive Want to recycle old game and craft stuff: https://upcyclingcolors.com/

  This week we're finally all back together so we decided to talk about... virtual. game. groups?  Yeah, we know it's a little late to talk virtual, but really, this isn't about the pandemic, it's about kids and adulting and such.  BGA FTW Join our discord!  Just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/phjS78TKch Email feedback and contest entries to feedback [at] tabletopgametalk.com.

  This week Fletcher is on his honeymoon, but Kitty is back (with a slightly raspier voice).  So while Fletcher is away, Chris and Kitty talk about bad players.  Pure coincidence.  So what is a bad player?  Can it be fun to be a bad player?  And do we have fun playing with or against bad players?  All that and a banter section that lasts about 15 minutes and covers all kinds of going ons.

  We didn't know it was going to be a part 1 at first, but we soon realized we weren't doing this topic justice in just one episode, so there will be a followup.  Maybe next week, maybe next month, probably next week.  But for this episode Kitty is out and Chris and Fletcher talk about Lego and how they relate to gaming, but mostly about Lego in general.  Chris may have developed a new addiction...
