Hello and welcome to Week 67 of the What Did You Play This Week Podcast Thing, we’ve got an overfilled episode of Board Gaming fun in store for you so I hope you packed your comfortable headphones as the episode was already approaching an hour and a half before we even recorded my family’s portion of the show so I expect that when this is done we’ll be close to the 2 hour mark, I hope everyone is okay with that. We won’t make it an every week thing, but I think you’ll like this one. So, why is this episode so over extended, well first up, we have all of our normal segments, Eric is going to review Entropy and Derek is back with the Voyages of Marco Polo and the small expansion, plus Patrick went out and landed us an interview with the wonderfully affable Stephen Buonocore which easily could have gone over 2 hours, we had so many things to ask that we left out so I hope that he means it when he says that he’d be happy to come back any time, plus we bring back the Meet the Gamer segment with another fantastic guy, Bill Corey Jr. Whew, I’m out of breath just talking about what we’ve got coming! Along with all that, I hosted a game day at our local library on Saturday so I’ve got a handful of games to jabber about and Kerensa and I will sit down and talk a bit about Letters from Whitechapel which I was inspired to dust off and play thanks to The Tattered Board Podcast. Look for a blog post about that coming in the next week as well as I think it may be a review from us or just a big overview. It’s been nearly 11 days since I have posted something to the blog, something that I need to do more regularly so I apologize to any of you that look forward to reading as well as listening.

Welcome to Week 65 of the What Did You Play This Week Podcast, another week and even more games. I’m trying to get the show back to normal this week, even starting to plot out my parts of the podcast well before noon on Sunday, I know, shocking. Anyway, we’ve got Derek talking about Too Many Bones and also he starts the Voyages of Marco Polo segment of the Evolving Review. Patrick talks a bit about what he’s been playing, a brief review of Forbidden Island for Android and his first official review of a physical game, or is it analog, anyway, Patrick is going to review Tasty Minstrel Games’ expansion to Flip City, Flip City Reuse. Eric had a rough day at work today and thus we’ll be Eric-less but I think after a good nap and some gaming he’ll be back up and running, he sends his apologies. . And Kerensa and I have quite a bit to go over for our gaming this week as well! PLUS we’ve got a special Geekway announcement for the show this week, we’re going to unveil the Vendor list for the convention that happens in May of every year. Absolutely my favorite convention and this list has me really excited about the support that Geekway is receiving from publishers.

Week 64 and it's Valentine's Day so we're going a bit bare bones, no bumpers, no intros, no bonus Kickstarter or Acquisition corner, just a lot of content. I was promised a play of Pandemic Legacy tonight so I am trying to get this done a bit earlier than normal.

Welcome to Week 62 of the WDYPTW Podcast Thing and welcome to February and a new beginning. We have joined the Pathological Nerdcasters Network be sure to visit the page and show everyone some love over there! Thank you to Jason Hancock for the invite! Looks like a great group of folks to network with and work with to make each other a bit better every week. 


3:48  Patrick kicks us off this week, thought we'd do something a bit different this week just kind of due to things that happen to us all. So no review this week from Patrick, just a little life talk. Also I do mention Paul Leoncavallo and his current fund raising efforts for Home Away Boston, please check them out here -->

Reminder to other podcasts out there, we do have room for a couple more bumpers if you want to throw them my way. I like adding them to the show and like I said, it gives us a bit of bumper stuff between our segments to make us sound just a little bit professional. Thank you to all of you who have thrown them my way!
