Episode 85 - Games only We Seem To Champion

Introduction:   

  • Zany Banter!!

Great podcast if you like minis

These guys cover a wide variety of games, and adroitly avoid making you feel bad for liking games they don’t. Their taste in games varies enough that they cover about the entire spectrum of games, even if they don’t love the same ones I do, they give everyone a fair shot.

They keep it lite, and the show never runs too long, and if you’re lucky, they break out the sound effects.

If you do listen, reach out to them and inform them they are wrong about miniature games, and so very right about sharing their love of boardgames.

Honestly a fun show, without the heavy handedness of some other podcasts out there.

Also, games with minis are awesome, but so are games with cubes, dice, and anything in the Mediterranean.

 

News:

  • Half Truth is a party game for all ages and people, created by legendary game designer Richard Garfield and 74-time Jeopardy winner Ken Jennings. With art by well-known artist Ian O'Toole, the game comes with 500 trivia question cards and each card has a category on it, like "Animals with blue tongues." There are six possible answers, three right and three wrong, and players have to place bets on answers they believe are correct. Players are usually surprised by how well they do. We're all smarter than we think. 
  • Reigns: The Council is an asymmetric party game for 3-6 people about a monarch seeking harmony in their realm, and their advisors vying to influence them for their own goals. 
  • New AZUL: Summer Pavilion
  • Hasbro now owns Death Row Records -- so Dr. Dre presents Chutes and Ladders…. Sorry! Dogg featuring Snoop.
