This is the feed where you can get all the great podcasts found over at the Boards & Swords website (http://boardsandswords.com). There's the main Boards & Swords podcast, where four friends have fun talking about board games and finding a game they all like, and The Dirtbags of Holding, a RPG actual play podcast showing off the wrong way to play several different roleplaying games.
World 1-1 of Geek Craft with Ken Grazier - Boards & Swords #160
Philip and Chris were already getting lonely talking to themselves, so in this episode, Ken Grazier from Geek Craft joins us to talk about the usual board games, but also things like Super Mario 35 and how bad Chris’ jokes are.
Cartographers Revisited, Among Us, Can we do this by ourselves? - Boards & Swords #159
The Team Swords takeover of the podcast is complete: now can we actually still be entertaining? We revisit Cartographers from Thunderworks Games, so there definitely is some board game talk. Also, Chris revisited his youth. And there might be an imposter….
Tattoo Stories, Nevada City, Lots of Western Legends Talk - Boards & Swords #157
Not only is Western Legends on Kickstarter again, but its on Collin & Cindy's table again. So much Western goodness that Chris might pass out from boredom!

Getting back to recording a “normal” episode, Cindy & Collin talk about Team3 from Brain Games, while Chris talks about the Star Wars Legion Clone Wars set from Fantasy Flight Games & the Viticulture app from DigiDiced and Stonemaier Games.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I listened to Boards and Swords #34. I came into this genuinely interested in the subject matter, I chose this episode because I wanted more info on "Superfight!" but I also am a big fan of Betrayal. The speaker (Chris, I'm assuming) doesn't really have a tone that inspires confidence in his knowledge of the subject matter, he is very halting and seems pretty directionless. I've heard just one episode from one show from a channel that appears to offer multiple shows, so this is not the most in-depth review, but despite my genuine interest and curiosity in the topic of the episode that I chose, I ended up not being able to enjoy this show. It's tough to have a big enough personality to keep a show going with a single person hosting.
