    TGT On Topic 221: CoOp Difficulty

    This week we talk about how hard Spirit Island is.  And the difficulty of other games as well.  Where should the difficulty of CoOp games sit?  Is too hard bad, how about too easy?  Is there such a thing as a sweet spot for all of them?  No.  but we wish there was...

    Oh, and some people really like stats: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1591774/statistics-2000-games-pandemic

    TGT On Topic 220: Box Inserts

    This week we talk about box inserts.  The good, the bad, and the worst.  Why should we all just throw them out?  Chris tries to answer that (except for one kind that he doesn't know the name of but really likes).

    Oh, and we announce that we'll be getting a new logo soon (updated artwork) as well as new giveaways for 2021.

    TGT On Topic 219: Looking To 2021

    TGT On Topic 219: Looking To 2021

    This week we look forward to 2021, and seem to be the only podcast that decided to put out an episode this week!  (ok, that's probably not true, but it feels like it's true)  In any case, we briefly sum up 2020 and then talk about all the cool things we hope for in 2021.  From kids to conventions, weddings to games, and a whole lot more.

    If you want to bring in the new year with the destruction of the Death Star, start your Disney plus version of Star Wars: A New Hope at 10:02 and 43 seconds New Year's Eve night.  (That'll make sense once you've listen to the start of the episode.)

    TGT On Topic 218: 2020 Kickstarters

    This week we look back at the Kickstarters we backed in 2020.  Or more accurately Kitty and Chris do and Fletcher tells us why he doesn't use Kickstarter.  We also start talking about some Christmas traditions and end with a debate on D&D alignments.

    If you want to bring in the new year with the destruction of the Death Star, start your Disney plus version of Star Wars: A New Hope at 10:02 and 43 seconds New Year's Eve night.  (That'll make sense once you've listen to the start of the episode.)

    TGT On Topic 217: Chess

    This week, inspired by The Queens Gambit (on Netflix) we talk about Chess.  Everything you ever wanted to know, except maybe chess rankings, we just forgot to talk about those.  But everything else, we talk about.  It's crazy entertaining to learn about Chess... no really!

    And we also announce who won our gift card giveaway!

    TGT On Topic 216: 2020 Games

    TGT On Topic 216: 2020 Games

    The first rule about 2020 is that you shall not talk about 2020... or at least that's what it seems.  Monday night Kitty's audio recorder corrupted her audio (and Chris didn't have a backup recording) so we had to re-record on Tuesday night.  Tuesday night Fletcher's audio was all static for the first 20 minutes (but this time Chris learned from Monday and had a backup recording, but it's not as good as the primary recording).  So Fletcher is going to sound a bit distance after the intro and until about 20 minutes in.

    But once we got all the audio stuff figured out (you'd think we'd be good at that by now), we do finally talk about the 2020 games that we've played or are interested in.

    Last reminder: On Dec 14th (all entries must be in by the 13th) we'll be drawing a name to win a $250 gift card.  You can get entries in the following ways:



    Patrons automatically get entries equal to the $ level they pledge at.

    Leave us a review on Apple Podcast and email us with your iTunes name for 10 entries.

    Email us and just say you want to enter will give you at least 1 entry (maybe more depending on the email).

    Play the game at the end of the episode (the last minute) and send us your result will also get you 10 entries.

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.
