  This week we look at the different ways to play in an RPG campaign.  Whether that "campaign" is a 2 hour-learn-to-play-one-shot or a 10 year long save-the-multiverse-sprawling-epic, there's a way for anyone to find the time to play in a game or two.  We're also taking the next two weeks off, but when we come back we'll be doing an epic 5 person drawing for our 2021 giveaway.  So enter now if you haven't.

This week we're talking about tracking our play statistics and board game collections.  What are the various ways we can track our plays?  What is the value of doing so?  What about keeping an inventory of your game collection?  Does it help you keep the collection under control or just make you feel guilty for having too many games?  Can it be both? If you want to enter our 2021 giveaway, details are below. And if you're a winner this is the current list of games you get to pick from (more will be added throughout the year):

This week we're talking about story driven games.  Those games that put story first and mechanics second (or maybe eliminate most mechanics altogether).  How do we feel about story in our games?  Does it add or deter from the meat of the game?  And does all that story keep us playing or scare us away?

This week Fletcher and Chris are on their own as they talk about expandable card games from TCG like Magic the Gathering to LCGs like Arkham Horror.  What are the pros and cons of the different distribution methods of these games and what do we prefer?

This week Kitty and Chris are on their own as Fletcher didn't want to be around when Kickstarter came up.  BUT, in this episode, they both agree to disagree with someone else.  Specifically they are talking about the article you can find here: https://www.polygon.com/22458363/crowdfunding-is-killing-board-game-expa....

This week we talk about Failing Forward in RPGs or how to keep the story moving when the players fail to overcome a challenge.  We may go off the rails a bit, you know, to demonstrate real life failing forward.  But as long as we had fun, we did it right... Oh, and in the post credits we talk a bit about taking sides, or not, when two evil groups decide to go to war in our current adventure. If you want to enter our 2021 giveaway, details are below.

This week we talk about co-op games, again.  From games that are really just solo games to games that must be played with multiple people.  We'll dig into what appeals to us about each of these kinds of games.  We (Kitty) even comes up with a cool new way to play co-op games solo but with others.  It makes sense if you listen, honest.

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!
