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.

Week 25 1/2 is a short podcast, just so folks don't forget me over the week. I want to do justice to the weekend that we had at Geekway this year on the podcast so I thought I'd try to record a bit all week long and we'll have our first EPIC WDYPTW Podcast Thing episode next week. 

I do talk a bit about one Kickstarter that I backed, Wombat Rescue from Eagle-Gryphon Games and designer Matt Wolfe.

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.
