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.

Really wanted to like it...

I really wanted to like this podcast. Tried two episodes. One involved an 11 minute monologue about ankles, food and poker, then a few more minutes about gaming at a developers house. The other episode took waaaayyy too long to get to any crunch as well, including even more poker talk about how the host played for money and when. Funny enough it was a heavy board game podcast without crunch and with too much filler. This show could be trimmed to an hour if the fluff was pulled out and it would be greatly improved. It stinks though, I really really wanted to like it!

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.
