The Board Game BBQ Podcast

Episode 202: Clinic, Flesh & Blood, Five Tribes

August 9, 2022

Sarah is back so Def and Conor join her to discuss Texan hospitality, the trickiness of Trickerion, tenderhooks vs tenterhooks, and theorising on Vital Lacerda's research methods for Escape Plan. Meanwhile in Sizzling Games, Sarah has been running out of patients (see what I did there?), Conor has been creating chaos in a collectable card-game, and Def has been taking tribes to task.

We recap last week's Question of the Pod: What game from your collection always makes it back to your table?

Finally, in Swear An Oath, Sarah and Def put a curse on Ian O'Toole's house for teaching On Mars to Dan before they had a chance, but Conor came through on his oath and relived some family memories by playing the new edition of Key To The Kingdom. New oaths include Viscounts of the West Kingdom: Keeper of the Keys (Conor), playing Marvel Champions solo (Def), and playing burncycle solo (Sarah)
