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.

Well, we've made it to week 17! This week was a light week as far as gaming goes, but I did do some work on the blog, getting it up to snuff so to speak and we released our first Kickstarter preview. This one for Best Treehouse Ever from Green Couch Games and Scott Almes, be sure to check out our preview on Board Game Geek and also over on our blog, and if it sounds interesting to you be sure to check the Kickstarter which is launching on March 20th!

My wife and daughters joined me to talk a little bit this week so if the format is a bit wonky, that's because I'm trying to teach myself how to do add in guests that use pre-recorded material, so I apologise if things get repeated a bit as that'll happen when we have 3 different recording sessions. Mostly we talk about Best Treehouse Ever and Downfall of Pompeii. But be sure to listen as AnnaBeth gives her favorite game, it came as a shock to me to say the least. 

Don't forget the contest we are running for a copy of Sheriff of Nottingham, just email me your favorite "gotcha" moment from your gaming life. You can email me an audio file of you telling the story or you can send it in text as well. Send submissions via email to wdyptw@gmail.com
