The What Did You Play This Week Podcast Thing (board games)

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.

Alright, slow week of gaming so a quick 19 minute episode this week, but it's got some good things in there I think even if it is shorter.

Only two games got to the table this week, Volt:Robot Battle Arena and The Phantom Society. I give a brief overview of both of these. I talk a bit about Kickstarter, nothing new tempted me, but I did keep following Mistfall and I am enjoying watching Best Treehouse Ever just keep climbing.

I do also mention a new podcast to be watching for from friend, Travis Hill. It's called Low Player Count and it's going to be a podcast all about solo and two player games, can't wait for that one to drop. Keep an eye out for it around Sunday of next week. 

Also mention our Board Game Twitter Fantasy Baseball league which I am so going to win this year, and you'll all get to hear a little about it as the season goes I'm sure, but be sure to mention to Anthony from Cardboard Jungle that his team looks pretty bad this year.

Week 18 starts with a bang, don’t forget the contest!! Enter at wdyptw@gmail.com Played some fantastic new games this week and a fantastic old favorite.

Start with playing some Thunder Alley at the church meetup on Monday night, had a great time with that game. Then on Thursday I helped with a Millenial Program at the public library and taught a game of Black Fleet. Saturday got in a couple plays of Tzaar, fantastic abstract that I lost horribly and a game of Ginkgopolis which is easily Top 3 material for me, if not number 1. Sunday we closed out the weekend with some Flying Monkeys and some Pitchcar with the girls.

Talk a bit about a Weigh Loss Challenge over on BGG: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/189001/bgg-weight-loss-challenge

Also touch on some acquisitions and Kickstarter. Picked up a copy of Rokoko and then backed the fantastic Best Treehouse Ever. Also discussed a bit about Mistfall and Wir Sind das Volk.
