The What Did You Play This Week Podcast Thing

Short week of gaming this week, but a long week of gaming work. I've got two interviews for you all in this episode, but first we do talk about some DrachenStarkCastles of Mad King Ludwig and some Star Realms

I even mention a new Kickstarter that launched this week from Red Raven Games, Dingo's Dreams.

But the meat of this week's podcast are two interviews with a couple of really fantastic people, Ken Grazier and Paul Rogan.

We talk to both about their experiences at this year's GenCon. Ken is kind of a regular and this was Paul's first time.

Ken's Interview starts at the 6:18 mark, and you can hear Paul at the 23:36 mark. 

I owe both of these guys a huge thanks and I really do appreciate them taking the time to be interviewed for the show. 

Be sure to check them out online.

I'll have more links for them on the blog.

Great week of gaming, including plays of GemPacked Cards, a playtest of a new game from Vital Lacerda, Lisboa, JurassAttack!, Five Tribes, Elysium, Ashes Castles of Mad King Ludwig. I had Ray and Bern from my local game group join me on Saturday for a few games. Kickstarter news is all about New Bedford, as that's the only thing tickling my Kickstarter acquisition disorder at the moment, but I'm sure that will change any minute.

Kerensa joins me on this podcast to talk for a few minutes as well. 

Hope everyone has a fantastic week!!

Week 36 rolls in with a whimper but goes out with a bit of a roar with 2 games played on Sunday to salvage a gameless week. Touch on GemPacked Cards a bit, but look for a preview for it in the next week or two and we also got in a first play of the game Rokoko, which I thought was a fantastic two player game, hopefully Kerensa felt the same and we'll get it back to the table this week. 

Kickstarter talk was all about New Bedford and the lack of Consequential on Kickstarter. 

Last but not least I wrap up talking about why I started doing the podcast and blog. In short, I don't know how to do anything the easy way. 

Have a great week!!!

Week 35 rolls in with all the vengeance of a summer that feels as if it were scorned or not taken seriously, man it's been hot. 

Not a whole lot of gaming even though we did have a meetup this past week, but we are gearing up for GenCant and I was the guest on the Docking Bay 94 Podcast and had a fantastic time talking with Jason and Jason, along with learning a bit about podcasting.

This week was a fantastic week of gaming, with 11 plays of 7 different games, two of those had been living in the dust for over a year. 

Gabby and AnnaBeth join me for a few to chat about the week as well. 

Kickstarter was pretty slow for me this past week, I backed nothing new and just keep riding the Hocus and JurassAttack! train.

We finish up the podcast with the continuation of our Top 10 games we are looking forward to come GenCon 2015. We won't be there, but that doesn't mean we can't help fuel the hype and get a bit excited ourselves.

Also, don't forget to check out and join in the fun that is #GenCant, find out more information at www.gencant.com.

Have a great week!!

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!

So week 32 sees us playing some more Arboretum and also previewing the new game coming to Kickstarter from Green Couch Games on July 10th, JurassAttack! I give my thoughts on it and then AnnaBeth and Gabby join me to talk a bit about it as well!

Kickstarter chatter about the ending of The Gallerist campaign and how Carson City Big Box and Hocus just keep on moving along. Also touch on the disappointment that Monster Truck Mayhem was cancelled.

Plus, I finally revive the Podcasts in my ear segment.

Have a great 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.

Ahhh, it's good to be back although I owe a huge thank you to my wife for stepping in last week and helping me out, she did a fantastic job. 

This week was a good week of gaming even though it only saw the play of 3 distinct games over 9 plays. Arboretum and Cacao led the way with a play of Scoville to spice things up a bit. 

The Gallerist and Carson City hit Kickstarter this week and man does my wallet already feel the pinch, why do they do it this way.

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.
