    Second Chance (The Game and Let's Just Call This Season 2)

    We’re back! It’s been almost a year since our last episode. What did we miss? We’ll just say the first 30 episodes were Season 1, and like any TV show worth its salt, we wanted you to wait a year for the next season. Ok not really… we got busy, things got crazy, 2020 happened, … Continue reading 31 | Second Chance (The Game and Let’s Just Call This Season 2)

    30 | Circle the Wagons and Sprawlopolis (Fit in Your Pocket)

    One of our most pleasant surprises over the past few months is discovering Button Shy Games, producers of microgames that consist of 18 cards (or fewer) and come in a minimalistic bi-fold wallet. Certainly the small footprint of these titles is welcome for those of us whose Kallax shelves runneth over. But how much gameplay … Continue reading 30 | Circle the Wagons and Sprawlopolis (Fit in Your Pocket)

Pair that with a quirky, unique dystopian theme, and we are certainly intrigued!

    28 | Tiny Towns (Regular-Sized Meeples, Tiny Towns)

    When we saw the box art and components for Tiny Towns, it just looked like our type of game. There are plenty of wooden bits, oversized cards, friendly and approachable artwork, and a rulebook that’s streamlined and to the point. Maybe this game could scratch the same itch that Kingdomino scratched a year ago. Don … Continue reading 28 | Tiny Towns (Regular-Sized Meeples, Tiny Towns)

    26 | Favorite Weeknight Games (Most Days are Weekdays!)

    If we look back over our gaming stats, most of our board gaming happens during the week. However, after a long day of work, dinner, and kid bedtimes, your brain and energy tank might be running on fumes. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing left for gaming though!

Loving this podcast

I just stumbled upon this podcast recently so have been binge listening. Really enjoying it! I love wine and am enjoying the recommendations! My fav so far has been the cashmere red blend by Cline cellars. It’s fun finding someone with your tastes in hobbies :)

Great gaming podcast!

I took a solo road trip from Raleigh, NC to St Louis, MO, and catching up on this podcast was great company for several hundred miles. It’s a charming format, and I really love the wine-game rating scale. And I learned about some great games that I hadn’t heard of. Looking forward to future episodes!
