Episode 204 — Well, You Said a Lot of Things

In this episode we get our 4x gaming on. Session reports on games set on land and in space.

Also, if a game falls in the forest and there’s no one there to play it, is it a game? Our first and last segment in the ongoing series we call Non-existent Games.

Episode 15 — Cramer vs. Cramer vs. Cramer, et Malz

Lancaster_0005It’s a Cramer fest!

This week we discuss the merits of making Scotch whisky for clansmen up in Scotland, fighting France for the favor of King Henry, and sewing dresses for the French socialites we just, um, conquered for said King, while drinking the whisky we made, because, well, why make it if you’re not going to drink it, and will this sentence ever stop running?!?

What we’re trying to say is we look at several games designed by Matthias Cramer. Maybe we should stop drinking.

It’s that time of year.  Top 10 lists abound.  People pontificate. This is better than that and that is nowhere near as good as the other, all in order, from 1 – 10.

We decide that we too can count to ten, and make lists, but we like to be different.

So, our New Year’s Eve episode sees us taking on BGG contributor Sarah Reed’s challenge of playing 10 games 10 times each in 2014. We make individual lists (because it’s a list episode, and well, it’s just the thing to do) and then compare them in an utterly thrilling manner.

Unable to leave well enough alone, we add a special Punching Cardboard rule to the madness and count to 11. It all results in a what seems to be a very logical commitment: we decide to play our games.

Find our lists on our 10 x 10 page.  Feel Free to post your own 10 x 10 list in the comments section, and add a game from any other list for your plus one.
