Passion and Analysis

There are many podcasts that talk about board games, and they provide quick reviews so that consumers have an idea of what is good or not. However, few give such a good look at a single game in such an organized manner as Heavy Cardboard. Apart from the many times poker is mentioned there is so much to enjoy, learn about, and discover when listening to this podcast.

I joined the Herd

I love this podcast and the YouTube channel. Edward covers a variety of games, but focuses on the heavier games I enjoy. Our tastes in games are similar, so I find he’s a great source for finding hidden gems I’ve missed.

Additionally, his instructional videos and play throughs are immensely helpful when you’re the one who teaches most new games for your gaming group. They’re a great supplement to the rulebook, which are not always well written. I highly recommend HC if you’re into heavy games.

Update: The might have fallen....

Update. Sadly, the quality has falled in the last year and a half. The podcst is infrequent, and often isn't on the niche that made it "famous." Focus on the YouTube channel has put the podcast clearly on the backburner making it hardly worth the time.

A nice, fresh take on the boardgame podcast. It is nice to see a focused podcast on a single game/game type, instead of the massive overview podcasts we have a current glut of. The only thing that could make this better (and along with others), is to remember the past boardgame instead of focusing currently on the cult of the new.
