Well, it's 2013, so as usual, we take a look back five years ago and talk about the best games - now that we have half a decade to muse on the subject. We also talk about Lancaster, Man Bites Dog, and Power Grid: the First Sparks as well as other games. Finally, we answer a plethora of questions, including Tom's thoughts on Duel of Ages 2, Space Alert, and more!

Hooray, another episode! In this show, we talk about the Dice Tower Kickstarter - and also get into our favorite topic - great games! We review City of Remnants, Mice and Mystics, German Railways, and Fluxx. Brian takes us back to Hey, That's My Fish!, while James talks about being the villain. The Pirates come on and spread some sort of nonsense, while Geoff talks about cheating some more. We do a three-way smackdown between Marvel Legendary, DC Deckbuilder, and Sentinels of the Multiverse - and end the show talking about what to do when there is a heated rules dispute.

Tom, Eric, and host of others all join forces (like Voltron!) to give you the best of 2012. In this first half of the show, we give our thoughts on the 2012 as a whole, as well as the biggest news stories of the year. We talk about our biggest surprise, and our biggest disappointment. Everyone picks the game with the best components, the game with the best artwork, the worst game, the best card game, best party game, best kids game, and best family game. Lots of fun, and a Happy New Years to everyone!

In this show, we talk about Zombicide, 2019: the Arctic, and Dungeon Command. We also answer a pile of questions, including why we don't talk much about print and play games, Carcassonne expansions, a good baseball game, and superhero games. We end the show talking about our top ten "lucky" games - games that have luck as a major mechanic.
