    TGT 321: The Lighter Side of Gaming

    TGT 321: The Lighter Side of Gaming

    This week Kitty is back, with some heavy news and a lighter topic.  Don't worry it's all good stuff.  We're talking about filler games!  And why they tend to be dismissed within the hobby as something you don't build a game night around.  But maybe we should give them a chance at the spotlight?  Or not.

    For when it matters, Kitty won and she liked it.  It'll make sense at the end.

    TGT 319: Wagering in Games

    TGT 319: Wagering in Games

    Some people love it, some hate it, we talk about it.  What are the different ways games can using wagering (betting) in games and how does it change the focus of the game.  Could adding wagering to more games level the playing field between player levels by shifting the victory condition include more of knowing who is going to win and not just winning yourself?

    TGT 318: Holiday Recap and TGT Con 2

    We're back from the holidays and we talk all about our break.  And we talk about Great Western Trail.  And we talk about TGT Con 2.  And despite all that, it still seems like an off-topic episode.  A fun, off-topic, episode.

    TGT 317: Most Anticipated of 2023

    TGT 317: Most Anticipated of 2023

    Last week we looked back at 2022, this week we look forward to 2023.  What games are we most looking forward to?  In Chris's case, what Kickstarter is he most looking forward to backing?  And even though this was recorded moments after our last episode, we somehow find some banter about something that happened between episodes.

    Reminder our next tournament that starts on Dec 27th, so go to the Discord to find the signup link.

    TGT 316: Most Played of 2022

    TGT 316: Most Played of 2022

    This week we look back at the games we played in 2022.  What did we play the most?  Why?  Do games on BGA count?  (Of course they do!) And why, after 316 episodes, do we still flub the beginning of the show.  And more importantly, why after 316 episodes does Chris not fix our flubs in editing!?

    Reminder our next tournament that starts on Dec 27th, so go to the Discord to find the signup link.

Cool Piano Guy ,

A Boardgame Podcast to Listen To

Excellent boardgame podcast that isn’t a typical boardgame review podcast. Discussion of boardgame related topics is the Tabletop Game Talk’s focus, not boardgame reviews. Chris, Kitty, and Fletcher (and occasionally Josh) have great chemistry and present a nice diversity of boardgaming perspectives and playing tastes from very casual and lighter games through to heavier games and more hardcore gaming. With over 200 podcast episodes published their commitment to the podcast and their listeners is impressive as they have released a podcast episode every week except for the ever so rare missed Tuesday and they are still producing podcasts discussing interesting topics and clearly having fun doing it. If you are looking for a family friendly boardgame podcast that isn’t another game review podcast, give Tabletop Game Talk a listen.

Great Podcast

Great banter. Interesting subjects. Fun to listen to.

The people and their games

Podcasts sink or swim based on the hosts’ personalities. TGT succeeds marvelously in this department.
They range from the more casual to the obsessed and offer both wonderfully contrasting opinions and enjoyable banter.
They’ve been on my “The Best” playlist for years.
