This week we find out what happens if we never go on topic. That something is that we’re all over the place. Cast-iron cooking. Family gaming. Advent Calendars. TGT Con 2. And a bit of a bunch of other stuff as well. In other words, we’re just talking to talk like any other episode 🙂 Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discor…
 
This week we try and crack the code on how to be casual with your competitive games. It’s a tricky one because nobody likes losing all the time in head to head match ups. But are there ways to keep it fun even when you’re not on top? Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPH Our BGA group can be found here: ht…
 
This week Kitty has lost her voice, so Chris and Fletcher talk about the new craze that is Marvel Snap. Yes, it’s an app, but it’s very tabletop adjacent. Is this just another Wordle fad, or is there some real meat in this game. Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPH Our BGA group can be found here: https:/…
 
This week talk playing games competitively, like tournaments and such, vs causally where you still want to win but you may not want to compete. This is a tough topic to nail down, so we’re not likely to enter a podcast tournament anytime soon, but if we did… we’d probably come in somewhere in the middle. Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste)…
 
This week talk about going through phases. Eventually we even talk about phases in gaming. Not the phase you take during a turn. The phases of what games we like and then stop liking and maybe start liking again. You know, phases.

This week Fletcher is back but now Kitty is out. So Chris and Fletcher talk money. Specifically money spent on hobbies. More specifically money spent on games. Is this another intervention for Chris? Maybe, kind of one he’s doing for himself… Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPH Our BGA group can be found…
 
This week Fletcher forgets he does a weekly podcast and Kitty and Chris talk about how you may, or may not, cut your collection down to a fixed number of games. Successful? Maybe, maybe not, but Chris does seem to come away ready to make some hard cuts to his collection. Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQX…
 
This week Sydnie joins Chris and Fletcher to talk about KeyForge, again again. Some big news was dropped over the weekend, so they just haaaad, to talk about it. No really, in the world of KeyForge this is like a 2nd edition of the game level news. Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPH Our BGA group can be…
 
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. Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPH Our BGA group can be found here: https://bo…
 
This week Fletcher bails on us again so we bring Sydnie in and talk about the history and future of KeyForge. We found it interesting, so maybe you will too.

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 …
 
We're looking at the future of our industry, or more specifically we're looking at concerns people have with the future of our industry and try to make sense of what's worth being concerned about and what isn't.Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPHOur BGA group can be found here: https://boardgamearena.com…
 
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 o…
 
This week we start out talking about TGT Con which is happening this weekend! The link to the list of games is below and you can sign up for them on our discord (link also below). We then switch over to talk about One D&D, the next "version" of Dungeons and Dragons due out in 2024.(Audio note: Fletcher's audio was cut off for the first few seconds,…
 
This week we talk about collecting...stuff. What drives us to collect? Why must we "catch them all"? And does everyone have the desire to collect? Turns out it's a spectrum. Who knew, right?Register for TGT Con: TGT Con RegistrationWatch and subscribe to my How to BGA YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/1_lXYSaTAdcJoin our discord, just click (or cop…
 
This week Sydnie joins us again and we talk about our 1 day at GenCon, her upcoming trip to Dragon Con, and more about TGT Con happening in less than 3 weeks (Sat Aug 27 & Sun Aug 28).Register for TGT Con at TGT Con RegistrationWatch and subscribe to my How to BGA YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/1_lXYSaTAdcJoin our discord, just click (or copy/pa…
 
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.co…

This week we talk about buying games. Where we buy them. Why we buy them there. The ethical dilemmas that come from wanting a good deal on games. And a fair bit of why you might want to buy Next Station London.Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPHOur BGA group can be found here: https://boardgamearena.com/…
 
This week we talk about all those Marvel games. Well mostly we talk about Marvel in general, but we do talk about some of the games too. Are there too many Marvel games? Nah, but that doesn't mean they are all good...Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPHOur BGA group can be found here: https://boardgameare…
 
This week we accept our addiction to Board Game Arena (.com) and look at the top games on the site. First we look at them as rated by Board Game Geek, and then we look at them by what's being played on BGA itself. And we throw in a few that didn't make either of those lists that we really like.We promise - we're not sponsored by BGA, but we probabl…
 
This week we take a closer look at how the number of players effects the overall enjoyment of a game. Should all games strive for max player count, or should we avoid the max whenever possible? Is 2-4 players a myth? How do games attempt to adjust for different player counts? And will we ever stop talking about BGA? (nope to that last one)Join our …
 
This week we talk about losing. We've heard over and over that losing can be "character building" but what does that mean? Is losing really not all that bad? Why lose when you could win? This one is dedicated to all you losers out there! (In the nicest possible way, honest, this is a good one.)Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: http…
 
This week Fletcher and Kitty are on their own! With Chris out of town we discuss card games you can play with a standard deck of 52 cards and if Board Games can do everything they can do, but better.Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPHOur BGA group can be found here: https://boardgamearena.com/group?id=57…
 
This week we take a closer look at the "Living Card Games" (LCG) currently in print by Fantasy Flight Games (FFG). Which, are all co-op games; The Lord of the Rings, Arkham Horror, and Marvel Champions. Each host gives their first impressions of one of these games and by the end, we may just find that there's an LCG for each of us.Join our discord,…
 
This week we talk about how games that require deck building (MtG, Arkham Horror The Card Game, Marvel Champions, ect.) can have a huge barrier to entry in trying and continuing to play these kinds of games. If you're someone who loves deck building, these games are for you. If you're not, we come up with some pretty good alternatives that can get …
 
This week Fletcher is out and Chris and Kitty just chat aimlessly. They cover playing games in person vs. online. 3D printing. Marvel Zombicide. A Hadrian's Wall update. The next BGA tournament. Where Chris's favorite games are today. And bananas.Join our discord, just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/ypK2dEQXPHOur BGA group can be fo…
 
This week we look at the opposite of luck: skill. How much can you get better at games? Some games are pure skill games, but even then your opponent(s) comes into the question. But most games do have an amount of luck involved, so when does that start to play more of an effect than your skill? That's the skill cap. We also draw winners for our Azul…
 
This week Spenser joins us as we compare traditional RPGs with the RPGs you may find "in a box." In other words, a board game that's trying to simulate what a traditional RPG does. How are they different? Why are they different? Why should Chris not play them alone. And what is it about pickled eggs?We also draw winners for our Azul prizes.Join our…
 
This week Fletcher couldn't join us, so Kitty and Chris spend an hour talking about the next game they are going to play on Tuesday's virtual game night. The requirements: a game you can play and have a conversation during at the same time.Join our discord! Just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/phjS78TKchOur BGA group can be found her…
 
This week we talk about the games that we used to love but just don't play anymore and why. And how to avoid playing out a game if that's your goal. Is playing game out really all that bad? Probably not, but it was fun to talk about none-the-less.Join our discord! Just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/phjS78TKchOur BGA group can be fo…
 
This week Fletcher leaves Chris with Kitty, who wants to talk about tie breakers and how unfair they are when they make her lose. Or something like that. But really, this is a fun one. Should tie breakers exist? What makes a good, or bad, tie breaker? And why do they always feel like an after thought? (spoiler: because they are)Join our discord! Ju…
 
This week Kitty leaves Chris and Fletcher alone and they decide to talk about work. Kind of. They discuss what it takes to write a digital version of a board game. But don't worry, they don't go too technical, and when they do, they back up and explain what they are talking about. Probably. Oh, and, software development isn't easy - $.99 isn't too …
 
This week we talk about board game tournaments. Probably because we're all participating in the first ever TGT Azul tournament (being run on boardgamearena.com). What makes a good game for tournaments? Why might you want to play in a tournament even if you're not that good? And will Fletcher ever win a game? (that last one will make more sense late…
 
This week we take a deep dive into why we (as a collective whole in the board gaming hobby - yes we speak for all of you) tend to play a game once and move on. Or maybe we don't. Maybe we play the same game over and over and Chris just has a problem. Could go either way on this one...Join our discord! Just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discor…
 
This week we use a new found addition to roll and write games on board game arena as a reason to take about roll and write games (mostly on board game arena). From Yahtzee to Hadrian's Wall we cover EVERY (no we don't) roll and write ever!! (no. we don't. There are thousands, we talk about, like, 6).Join our discord! Just click (or copy/paste) here…
 
This week we have a replay episode from about 3 1/2 years ago where we talk about Euro Games. We did plan to record a new episode, but due to sick kids we just weren't able to make it happen. As long as everything goes as planned though, next week we will talk about Roll & Writes (probably, hopefully, just depends on how the dice come up).Join our …
 
This week we take a look at the different between making your own stuff up or playing published content and stories. What's better? Well we for sure definitively answer that question, honest.Join our discord!

This week Josh joins Chris on the Dice Tower Cruise and they talk about all the games they played with a eye towards the pros and cons of player experience differences in competitive games. What types of games are more prone to causing frustration and what types are more player experience indifferent?Join our discord! Just click (or copy/paste) her…
 
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…
 
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.Join our discord!

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_archiveWant to r…
 
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 FTWJoin our discord!

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 a…
 
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 genera…

Join our discord! Just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/phjS78TKchThis week we're looking back at the last six years to try and determine if games are getting worse or are we just biased based on the size of our board game collection.

Join our discord! Just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/phjS78TKchThis week we have a little fun NOT talking (much) about tabletop games but instead we talk about game shows of the past and present.

Join our discord! Just click (or copy/paste) here: https://discord.gg/phjS78TKchThis week we talk about magic in role playing games, with a bit of a focus on D&D, but we cover some magic in other systems as well.
