Ep 111: Sorry, Mr. Franz

Kiwi can't help himself. It's jealously really, he wishes he had even a quarter of the ability of Mr. Klemens Franz when it comes to creating artwork. But he doesn't, he doesn't even have 1% of the ability.

Eric decided he'd go camping and not bring any games to play, so instead Kiwi and bP flip the script and bring the Uwe Roseberg game Caverna: Cave Vs Cave to the virtual table. Published in 2017, by then Mayfair and now Asmodee, this is a 2-player rework of his game Caverna: The Cave Farmers.

Do yourselves a favor, before you listen to this podcast, take 5 minutes and hop on YouTube. Search for "Randy Savage Cream Will Rise to the Top". You're welcome. bP and Kiwi square off as wrestling beetles in the 2021 BoardGameTables.com release, Kabuto Sumo, designed by Tony Miller!

For those traveling to GenCon, be safe out there! Wear your mask, wash your hands, socially distance, and fist bumps for the win!

Ep 108: Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy.

We must be cautious. Unless of course .. we are the scum and/or villains that Obi Wan was speaking of. This week, we played Star Wars: Outer Rim designed by Corey Konieczka and Tony Fanchi, published by Fantasy Flight Games in 2019.

Ep 107: Jimmy Stewart, Eat Your Heart Out!

Kiwi does a really bad Jimmy Stewart impression and an even worse Louis Armstrong impression. Let's just say, Kiwi isn't going to be a SNL cast member anytime soon. Our trio plays It's a Wonderful World designed by Frédéric Guérard and published by La Boîte de Jeu in 2019.

We certainly did! This week, Eric and Kiwi sit down to find out as they play Unmatched by Rob Daviau and Justin Jacobson published by Restoration Games!
