Episode 193: Planet Unknown, Chronicles of Avel, The Smoky Valley, The Transcontinental

June 7, 2022

On Episode 193 we recap the BGBBQ Award winners, discuss what happens when mini painting goes wrong, and we have some exciting news for the pop-culture community in Melbourne. When it comes to Sizzling some games: Mike visits a Planet Unknown, Dan saves the realm in Chronicles of Avel, Sarah tries not to inhale in Smoky Valley, and Adrian travels coast to coast on The Transcontinental.

In the Board Game Bracket we settle the last match-up, Too Many Bones vs Pandemic Legacy, before we cue up the next battle: Targi vs Anachrony. To make sure your favourite goes through to the next round make sure you vote on our socials.

Finally, in Swear An Oath, Dan might be unsettled about playing Unsettled but he did manage to go through the looking glass and Paint The Roses. Mike was on board with Monsters on Board, Sarah already got industrial in the Smoky Valley, and Adrian got philanthropic in Carnegie. New oaths include Silver and Gold (Dan), Viscounts of the West Kingdom (Mike), The Transcontinental (Sarah) and painting a purple phoenix (Adrian).

Episode 186: Praga Caput Regni, All Bridges Burning, Aeon’s End: The Outer Dark

Episode 186: Praga Caput Regni, All Bridges Burning, Aeon’s End: The Outer Dark

April 19, 2022

In this special episode Sarah and Adrian welcome back to the show, and the team - Def!! It's exciting to have him back after a brief hiatus and we certainly missed him. Def doesn't waste any time getting back into the swing of the tabletop talk as the crew discuss Fantasy Realms, the potential of the video game Elden Ring becoming a board game, Stonemaier's announcement of Viticulture World, and how much we love keeping stats. Don't forget our Sizzling Games: Adrian loved exploring the historical roots of Prague, Def has well and truly fallen down the COIN rabbit-hole, and Sarah has been increasing the difficulty of one of her favourite games.

In the Board Game Bracket we settle the last match-up, Eclipse: 2nd Ed vs Marvel Champions, before we cue up the next battle: On Mars v Gaia Project. To make sure your favourite goes through to the next round make sure you vote on our socials.

Finally, in Swear An Oath, Adrian got his Jaws of the Lion Party back together, Sarah played Railroad Ink with the "Pluckman" Dice, and Def - well, no one can remember what his last oath was. New oaths include 1862 (Adrian), The Smoky Valley (Sarah), and Perseverance (Def).

Episode 184: Unsurmountable, Barrage: The 5th Player Expansion, Dinosaur Island: Rawr ’n Write

April 5, 2022

On this episode Adrian, Mitch and Conor wax philosophical with the best pieces of advice that they have ever received, Mitch investigates Schnitzel-gate at the Castle Hill RSL, Conor wrestles with the dilemma of having too many games, and Adrian picks a fight with Mitch over his scathing Batman Returns review. But don't worry - amongst all of this there is still plenty of table top talk.

In the Board Game Bracket we settle the last match-up, Gaia Project vs Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle Earth, before we cue up the next battle: Clans of Caledonia vs Too Many Bones. To make sure your favourite goes through to the next round make sure you vote on our socials.

Finally, in Swear An Oath, Mitch played Marvel United: X-Men and found he enjoys it solo more than with anyone (surprise, surprise!), Conor made light work of The Hood for the greater good of mankind, and Adrian successfully painted the four minis prior to his next game of Kingdom Death Monster. New oaths include Jaws of the Lion (Adrian), play Navajo Wars without the tutorial (Mitch) and Marco Polo (Conor).
