    Shiny New Cardboard High - (Watermelon Sugar High Song Parody)

    Sorry. Sorry Harry Styles. But sometimes an idea takes shape without your control..


    Browsing Boardgaming,
    On a summer evenin'
    Watching playthoughs all night long.
    I want more gaming
    That unboxing feelin'
    The rulebooks' wonderful and warm
    Breathe it in, breathe it out
    I don't know what this boardgame all about
    I'm reading the rules out loud
    I don't know if I could ever go without
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard
    Solo gaming on a summer evenin'
    Hope it changes end of June
    I want group gaming,
    With that human feelin'
    If you've washed, it's up to you
    Breathe it in, breathe it out
    I'll play them all but I have my doubts,
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    I just wanna back it, I just wanna buy it
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Peel off that Shrink wrap,
    And start some sleevin'
    Coz greasy fingerprints are wrong
    I want stretch goals
    Buyer's regret I'm feelin'
    I don't know if I could ever go without
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard high
    I just wanna back it, I just wanna buy it
    Shiny new cardboard high
    I just wanna have it, I'm not going to play it
    Shiny new cardboard high
    Shiny new cardboard

Wizards aren’t allowed to tell you they are wizards...

As I stated in the title, Wizards are not allowed to tell you they are wizards. Richard is not a wizard, he has many flaws... One of which is his dislike of Pogs. For this reason, I can only give this podcast a 5 out of 10. It would be capable of a 10 out of 10 should his position on Pogs change in the future.

Find out more about the Pog episodes from my interviews with the “non” wizard. - Emma May :)

A personal chat with a wizard of podcasting

If you want to find out more about the person behind the game designer, publisher or other tabletop game celebrity, then listen to Richard’s We’re Not Wizards podcast. Always a bit tongue in cheek and always informative and generally just so very enjoyable to listen to. Hat off to this conjurer of the tabletop podcasting realm.

Maybe Sorcerers?

Genuine, conversational podcast all about board games and the people that make and write about them. Sometimes stays on topic, but prone to the odd wild tangent.
