Patrick and Eric in the Morning

Sub 15 minute episode this week as Kerensa and Gabby were to ill to join in the fun which is what I had planned to fill in some time, so instead you get to hear me talk about the games we played and a bit of what I hope to play in the coming week. 

Talk a bit about Kakerlaken Poker, Medina, Pounce/Jerk, Mysterium and Cards Against Humanity.

Also talk a bit about wanting to review a game in an upcoming episode and I think that game will be Medina, if I can get some more plays under my belt. I was quite taken with this abstract, but I'm not sure Gabby  & Kerensa were sold on it as much as I, but we'll see.

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas Holiday, if you don't celebrate Christmas I hope you had a fantastic week just as well. And I hope that everyone has a fantastic New Year. 

I'll be back next week!!

Shorter episode this week, been busy getting ready for Christmas and also with Christmas gatherings. Played some fun games this week including Scotland Yard, The Game of 49, Guillotine, Diamonds and Tajemnicze Domostwo. Nice range of games for us. 

Talk a bit about the 10x10 Challenge and how I feel about it looking back after a year and whether I want to try it again next year. Also going to try to finish the statistics for it in the coming months and also announce the Geek Gold winner of the writing contest for the Challenge.

I tried to get Kerensa to join me tonight but she was too tired, and you'll hear that in this episode. I am hoping at the beginning of the year I'll be confident and knowledgeable enough to actually edit this podcast instead of making it one long random stream of thought, but until then, your stuck with my babbling.

Thank you all for everything, I forgot to mention it at the beginning of the podcast but last week's Anticipated Games cast went beyond my dreams, LibSyn reported 229 downloads of last week's episode. I know that can be a bit skewed, but still it felt fantastic to see that many people listening! So thank you all from the bottom of my heart!!

I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas week! Hope we all get to have fun with our families and friends.

I'll be back next week!!

This week on the podcast we talk about games we've been playing, including: Machi Koro, Bruges, Biblios and The Game of 49. I talk a little bit about some BGG content that I have been following and enjoying and some podcasts and videos that were of interest. Along with that I do my initial Top 10 list, this one is a list of Top Anticipated Games of 2015. 

Thank you all for listening, last week was amazing, I think we were approaching triple digits for downloads and that kind of just boggles my mind. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Once again, if you have any questions, tips or suggestions, feel free to send them my way at or find me on Twitter @Vacabck That also happens to be my handle on BGG as well.

Have a great week everyone, now tell me, what have you all been playing?

Week 3 of the WDYPTW Podcast Thing, Gabby didn't want to join me on audio so I just collected a couple thoughts from her. We talk about Machi Koro, Qwixx, Blueprints, Caverna and Spyrium. Talk a smidge about another podcast out there that has me jonesing for some heavier games, Heavy Cardboard, most recently they have me wanting to try Arkwright. I babble a little bit about the new game KanBan and attempting to learn it. This one clocks in at a bit over 12 minutes, and I used a lower bitrate, let me know if there are any audio issues at the lowered bitrate, I mainly did it after realizing how much room even a 10 minute podcast can take up when you only want to pay for 50 mb of hosting at the moment!

Help me improve, give me feedback!!

Thanks for listening, I can't believe there were 45 downloads for this, you folks rock!
