    Season Five, Episode Five - Raiders of the North Sea

    Your favorite Viking boys are back. This week they're raiding villages and pillaging strongholds in Raiders of the North Sea from Renegade Game Studios and Garphill Games. The boys built their raiding parties, presented their offerings and battled for glory in this Viking-inspired worker placement game. Also this episode: It's the return of "Beef or Plug", Rob battles the local teens, Campbell takes issue with Goofy, Josh flames on a game (big surprise) and Ben aka Gart Wolfslinger hangs around for a bit.

    Season Five, Episode 4.5 - Gamicon

    Come gather round now children and listen to a tale of camaraderie, revelry, and perhaps a little bad weather travel to a wonderous gathering called Gamicon. This is an episode that we recorded earlier in the year and wanted to release it closer to the next show so perhaps folks can't plan on checking it out in 2020 - because you know hindsight!  Also in this episode, we talk about speedrunning blind video games and Board Boy Rob shows up midway to give us weather and traffic updates.

    Season Five, Episode Four - Yokohama

    Season Five, Episode Four - Yokohama

    This week your favorite boys traveled overseas to visit the bustling port city of Yokohama - who knew 1868 Japan could be so much fun? In Yokohama, each player is a merchant broadening their sales channels, investing in technology and completing contracts. Only one player comes out on top and (spoiler) ... it wasn't Campbell! Also this episode: Rob and Josh road-tripped to BGG Con and didn't kill each other (we think), Disney+ is a thing and Chris from Meeple Overboard is here to help with a new segment!

A+

After spending 40+ hours listening to this, I almost feel like I know these guys. Most episodes just feel like the low key hangouts that I live for with friends who are just nerding out and having fun. Super informative and would 100% recommend for anyone to listen to, whether you’re only on board for a specific game, or if you’re planning to power through every session. Check it out

Buncha Dorks

If you’re into hearing a buncha dorks talk about dorky stuff for an hour, then this is the right place. Board game culture is starting to get more popular, but some of the more elaborate games can seem overwhelming. Whether you’re a n00b who wants to learn more or a board game vet that’s played them all, this show does a good job of breaking down the mechanics of the games they play, and it doesn’t feel like reading from instruction manual.

V entertaining. V fun.

Two Thumbs Up For These Jabronis.

If I had more thumbs, I’d give more thumbs up. I’m not super into board games, but this podcast makes me want to be. The guys have good chemistry together and are clearly well-versed in what they love. Plus, it’s nice to listen to when I’m wandering around the grocery store!
