After some setbacks, I rallied and got a fairly decent podcast out this week I think. Not a lot of games played this week, just a play of Eggs and Empires and then a play of Open Sesame. Acquisitions were in full swing though and the Kickstarter hits just keep coming, although Carson City Big Box is wrapping up soon, so if you are wanting to get in on that, be sure to do so quickly.

One of my friends from our local gaming group wanted to record a bit about a game he had played so I said "Let's do it", so please welcome Ray to the podcast, he's here discussing Eminent Domain: Microcosm. You can find Ray on twitter @instgamereview and he also has a review channel over on Youtube, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWiND_d2a4GqIWLpjUKTcCQ/videos give him a watch over there.

We close out the week with some Gen Con talk and my 10-6 list of games that I would rush to buy/demo at Gen Con this year, 5-1 will be here next week!

Good week of gaming with a lot of online games, played 5 games on Board Game Arena this week. Also got Last Will to the table for the first time and Transylvania: Curses and Traitors. Sunday saw some goofing off with AnnaBeth and Gabby with One Night Ultimate Werewolf and Arboretum, which led to our first "official" review for the podcast. Kerensa also joins me to talk a bit about Arboretum after my review to give a different view of the game.

Kickstarter continues to take a chunk out of my wallet, with The Gallerist, Carson City and now Hocus. Be sure to check those projects out.

I was feeling a bit wiped out this evening, so my lovely wife Kerensa offered to step in to do the podcast much to my surprise and I happily obliged. 

Played a bit of Cacao again this week, some Flash Duel, some more One Night Ultimate Werewolf and some Rhino Hero along with swimming, running errands and a day of rained out baseball on Sunday. 

Wombat Rescue is almost out of time, fully funded right now, just working on some stretch goals at the moment, don't miss out on the game unlike any game seen, played or smelt before!!

Also don't forget on the 16th to check out Monster Truck Mayhem on Kickstarter and then on the 18th The Gallerist drops. Get those Kickstarter wallets open and ready to go!!

I hope everyone enjoys the short podcast this week, I'll be back to normal next week I hope.

Week 28 rolls in with some great gaming! I hosted our local game groups quarterly meetup at our local public library, Missouri River Regional Library. We had 11 folks show up to shirk their Saturday chores and play some games and we got some good ones in. 

Cacao, The Downfall of Pompeii, Dead of Winter, One Night Ultimate Werewolf, Cyclades and Arboretum. Then I came home and got to play Carcassonne with Kerensa and Gabby and then Richard Ritterschlag with AnnaBeth and Kerensa. I love it when good gaming happens. 

Kickstarter talk is all about Epic from White Wizard and Wombat Rescue from Eagle Gryphon and Matt Wolfe. Be sure to check out their Kickstarter pages.

Good week of gaming here after Memorial Day, and I'm glad for it as the week after Geekway being barren of games began to worry me a bit. We talk a bit about Machi Koro, Cardline-Globetrotters, Arboretum, Tajemnicze Domostwo and even got a game of Cacao in!

Kickstarter's mentioned were Mottainai and Wombat Rescue.

And we branch out into other random ramblings, hope you enjoy the ramble.

No guests this week, but starting tomorrow I am going to start asking around for the next Meet the Gamer subject and I hope I find someone for next week's podcast, if not, it'll come the week after that.

Super short episode this week as it really was a light week of games this week, with only 2 plays of a couple light party games, Ugg-Tect and Ca$h n Gun$. But what we miss out in quantity we make up in fun. 

Talk a bit about a couple Kickstarters, Xenon Profiteer from TC Petty and The Siblings Trouble from Eduardo Baraf gets a bit of an extended look.
