A monthly podcast dedicated to the history, evolution, present state, and future potential of our favorite board games.

Episode 24 - Real-Time Games

July 1, 2020

No more taking turns - this month we discuss real-time games! Unfortunately, we are still limited by lockdown audio quality, but hopefully you still find it listenable. Thanks for bearing with us!

In this episode:

    • Brian is a little bit punchy and/or stir crazy, and also has a little bit of a cold. (Just a cold, we promise.)
    • A discussion on Zoom meeting etiquette.
    • We discuss Edgar Cayce - clairvoyant, nutritionist, game designer.
    • Who is going to reissue a WKRP-in-Cincinnati-themed version of Falling?
    • Frank tells us about Corona - the game, not the virus.
    • Our continuing love affair with Vlaada Chvátil...continues.
    • Brian tries and fails to describe La Boca in words.

As always, we appreciate your listening and would love to hear your comments on any or all of these items, and especially a review on iTunes if you have the time and inclination!
