    TGT Replay 019: Metagaming

    This is the second of our summer replay episodes.  In this episode we go meta.  First meta about the podcast, and then we talk about meta gaming (and cheating).  And then, after the original episode finishes, you get 15 more minutes of present day us (including Josh again) looking back at this episode.

    If you don't want to re-listen to this episode and skip right to the new stuff, then listen to the first minute and then skip to 1:01:50.

    (Where's all the other stuff that goes here?  Well, our live shows will resume in a few weeks (we'll give you plenty of warning) and we'll also start taking listener read credits at that time as well.)

    TGT Replay 004: What Makes a Game Fun?

    TGT Replay 004: What Makes a Game Fun?

    In the first of our summer replay episodes, we'll be going all the way back to Kitty's first episode and asking the question, What Makes a Game Fun... for us?  If this episode seems longer than others, that's because there's about 15 additional minutes at the end of the episode where we (present day Chris, Kitty, Josh and Fletcher) talk about the episode and how things have changed since it's original publication.

    If you don't want to re-listen to this episode and skip right to the new stuff, then listen to the first minute and then skip to 1:05:58.  But really, it's all good, we promise!

    (Where's all the other stuff that goes here?  Well, our live shows will resume in a few weeks (we'll give you plenty of warning) and we'll also start taking listener read credits at that time as well.)

    TGT On Topic 200: Top 10 Games We Want To Play For All Time (TTiGWWiTPaFAT)

    TGT On Topic 200: Top 10 Games We Want To Play For All Time (TTiGWWiTPaFAT)

    This week we ask ourselves, "If we could only play 10 games for the rest of time, what would they be?" - And then we answered it in this episode.  And the lists might surprise you.  We had very little overlap which means you get nearly 30 games worth of ideas in case you ever find yourself stranded on Mars with the perfect gaming group and have the foresight to order a bunch of board games before that happens.

    TGT On Topic 199: Gaming Milestones

    This week we look back at the gaming milestones in the last 120 years.  Well at least Chris's take on those milestones.  We also talk about raw fish.  Chris does one of the worse outros ever, while Adrian Paterson does one of the best reading of the credits ever and doesn't even get credit for it in the episode.  We'll fix that in episode 200 - which is being recored live in 2 days (Thursday, June 18th, 2020).  You can join us live by reading the next paragraph...

    TGT On Topic 197: Painting Board Game Minis

    This week we talk about painting miniatures.  Mostly about board game miniatures, but D&D and Warhammer do make their way into the conversation.  No, no, we're not trying to teach you how to paint over a podcast.  But we will talk about the advantages of painting your miniatures as well as the draw backs.

    To see the minis Chris is referencing in this episode, you can go to his titter page: https://twitter.com/gamemasterchris

Great Show

I really like how they discuss topics in games instead of only explaining games, though I still like that as well. If you're interested in hearing some interesting game board related discussions and not just game reviews, give these guys a listen.

Best board game talk podcast

Kitty is my favorite female perspective in table top gaming. She is always insightful and can disagree with tact. Chris is great at running the show and letting it off topic at times just enough to be fun. Fletcher makes good points, I just wish he would jump in more so we could get to know him a little better.

One of the BEST!

A fantastic and approachable board game podcast. One of the first game podcast I started with. The hosts knowledge and passion really shine through. I love the variety of topics and each topic is presented in a way that is easy to understand. Chris also does a really good job supporting other podcast and individuals in the industry. One of the best podcast in the industry and a great place to start.
