    Episode 131: Level Back! Expeditions Around the World, Origins 2024 & more!

    It's about time we level back!
    This episode features games that are at least 5 years old.  Sometimes the best games aren't the newest, but tried and true hits.
    Today's 8-bit breakdown goes to Expeditions Around the World, a recent re-release from Super Meeple, of a game originally from 1996!
    We chat about what we're looking forward to at Origins, and Explorer Josh tells us about some of the things you can do at the convention aside from board gaming.
    We finish it off with a retro trivia game!

    Episode 129: Slay the Spire! & TONS of Games from Fun-K Town convention!

    Episode 129: Slay the Spire! & TONS of Games from Fun-K Town convention!

    A great time was had by the whole party at Fun-K Town Convention: Knoxville's grooviest board game con!
    King Scott and Just Patrick are joined by Teacher Ryan and Explorer Josh to recount tales of the weekend!
    Recent plays include Tales from the Red Dragon Inn, Klask, Carson City, Tidal Blades, Dune, and many many more!
    The 8-bit breakdown goes to video game turned board game, Slay the Spire.  This rogue like video game incorporates randomness in all the right ways, to make each play exciting and different.  Does the board game live up to the hype?
    Next week we'll do a double lookback as we wanted to keep this episode focused on Knoxville.  A special thank you to Mike for inviting the podcast, and to AllPlay for providing several copies of Kabuto Sumo for demo!

My Feel Good Board Game Podcast

This is the board game podcast I didn’t know I needed, but can’t live without. I’m a solo gamer, largely because my friends and family look at me sideways when I talk about gaming, but also because I find people in real life exhausting. So, I like to listen to board gam podcasts to stay abreast of new games and to feel like I’m part of the conversation of what I like and don’t like about various games. With this podcast, I feel like I’m in a conversation with a few guys that I’ve been friends with for years. Patrick’s absurd dad-level jokes are 100% my bag. Scott and I share a name, so that’s a great start, but I also enjoy his auditory eye rolls and passion for the games he enjoys. The format is wonderful (especially the 8-bit breakdown) and music is worth tuning in for alone. Great podcast, great guys. I’m sorry that I live in AZ and can’t attend the meetups they discuss. For them, I might actually attend. I mean they’re probably also exhausting, but at least I can try out my dad jokes without fear of retribution.

Fun favorite

This podcast has become a quick favorite! I love the genuine conversation about board games instead of just pushing the latest hotness. These guys know what they like and aren’t afraid to talk about it. I love the 8-but theme and the extra effort put into transition music between topics. Very professional. I hope to meet these guys at a convention one day!

Top Notch!

Always a pleasure to listen to. Their enthusiasm for board games is infectious, the interviews and contributed segments are great, and the 8-bit Breakdown is perfection. Thanks, and keep up the good work.
