Fillers, Hipsters and Fires, Oh My!

We are back with another episode packed full of gaming goodness! We kick off the show as usual by chatting about what we’ve been playing lately. While Dan was busy crossing off two games from the top of his stack, Tiff took a chance with a social game and Matt picked up a foreign abstract game. We then introduce a new segment to the podcast called “Failed & Flipped” where we will be chatting about games that wore out their welcome in our collection and wound up being traded or sold.

Dan walks through this week’s Filler Feature – Abluxxen – and tells you about his love for a game he just cannot seem to win. Tiff flexes her hipster muscle and introduces Medieval Academy, a great family style drafting game coming to the U.S. this summer. We then close out the show by bringing back the cringe-worthy Keep, Trade, Burn! segment filled with a number of “you suck” moments.

EDITOR-IN-CHIEF/PODCAST CO-HOST : Allow myself, to introduce myself. Boardgaming since the womb, I have an unsound infatuation with buying, playing, discussing, photographing, and writing about boardgames. As a boardgame aesthetics enthusiast (say that 5 times fast) you'll typically find that I spend a large majority of the game examining the design, art, and components. I prefer strategic eurogames but will play just about anything these days (except Arkham Horror). And I love Pearl Jam.
