We’ve spent over a decade in the tabletop gaming space, as content creators, local store owners, and online retailers. Now it’s time to answer your questions, dive into complex topics, and have an incredible amount of fun along the way -- featuring exclusive updates, candid dialogue, and fascinating interviews with designers, publishers, and visionaries.
Nostalgia and the New Wave of TCGs
It feels familiar doesn't it? An influx of new TCGs hitting the market after a collectible boom, with significant financial success and often without the previously expected focus on rules, organized play, long-term distribution, and market position. This time, nostalgia for that first TCG boom - and the Big Three (Magic, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh) that arose from it - seems to be a driving factor. Join us as we begin to unearth exactly what is happening in this new era of collectible games.
Are Investors Good for Collectible Games?
Getting back into a collectible game - for us, that's the Flesh and Blood TCG - brings you back into the inevitable tension between players and investors. The former is annoyed by rising prices and product scarcity created by hoarded, unplayed products, while the latter is annoyed by players who don't understand how without investors, a game will not be financially sustainable (and will, then, die). Let's try to get to the bottom of it.
How to Run an Incredible Event

What Innovation Actually Looks Like
Having recently implemented a small but long-in-the-works change to our subscription system, we were reminded yet again that innovation is often more unseen grind than startling revelation. Join us for a bit of self-reflection that explains exactly what that means.
KeyForge and The Calling
While we were attending the biggest Flesh and Blood event to date, The Calling in Las Vegas, Fantasy Flight dropped some very significant KeyForge news. Get our full rundown of both, and how those events impact their respective games.
Not every movie is a masterpiece, but the team is great.
On point business gaming discussion!
Seriously though... where can you get thought-provoking, smart, and a phone or gaming discussions that bring in philosophical theories. Yeah this is definitely the podcast for you if you’d like to watch their life streams and want to hear more about their life experiences, or just general table top thoughts. It’s like peeking back behind the curtain of a board game store.
Very enjoyable, thoughtful content
