Random thoughts on board gaming with my family and friends. I'm a recent convert to the board gaming community, and I am trying to introduce my wife, daughters and friends to some great games to get them over to board gaming as well.

It's Week 31 of the What Did You Play This Week Podcast Thing!!!

Fun week of gaming and what I think is one of our better podcasts, but I may not be the best judge of that. We played a handful of games over on Board Game Arena this week. Kerensa and I enjoyed our first play of Last Will and also our first play of Transylvania: Curses & Traitors. Gabby got skunked at Arboretum and when I suggested over on twitter that maybe I should take it easy on her, she posted:



So we're kind of doing it right I think.

Kickstarter chatter is all about my dropping of Epic, my backing of Carson City: Big Box, The Gallerist and the new one on the list, Hocus.

It's Week 30 of the What Did You Play This Week Podcast Thing!!!

We'll call this one, "Back in the Saddle Again". Even though I wasn't really gone.



Thank you to my lovely and talented wife for taking over last week's podcast, it was much appreciated!

Good week of gaming with 9 plays this week of 3 distinct games. Arboretum saw 5 plays over the week at all player counts. Cacao had 3 plays over the week but all at the 2 player count, and we wrapped up the week with a 3 player game of Scoville.



Kickstarter is starting to get a bit crazy, not really a bit, we'll just call it crazy, with me currently backing Epic, The Gallerist and Carson City: Big Box. Plus we have Hocus coming this week on the 25th I believe.

I'm wrestling with Monster Truck Mayhem, really really want to back it, but I just don't know if the money is there. I hate to see this one get pushed off my list as it was one that I was looking forward to quite a bit, but with the amount of Kicktstarter money I've got tied up right now, I just don't know if it's there. We'll see.

If anyone has anything to say about Child of Light, let me know, it's on sale on Steam right now and I was thinking it may be a good one to pick up and see if it can hook my daughter into playing something with more meat, instead of flash based games and such.

Have a great week everyone!!

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: Globetrotter, Arboretum, Mysterium 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.

It's finally here, after a week of waiting, I've finally got the next WDYPTW Podcast Thing episode out and it's the longest one I've done to date at just over 1 hour long.

To help, I do have some time marks for you all this week.

Full write up with photos can be seen on the blog! https://wdyptw.wordpress.com/2015/05/25/week-26-geekway-wrap...

Doing something a bit different this week, I kind of took the week off from recording, but I did put out a little 6 minute "don't forget about us" episode which you can listen to.



We spent 4 days in St. Louis for Geekway to the West with about 1400 friends and fellow gamers and I am a bit beat. My voice is shot and I need to catch up on work from Thurs/Friday. So what I am going to do, is I am going to work this week on putting a big Geekway episode together for next Monday and then we'll be right back on schedule.

In the meantime check out Wombat Rescue on Kickstarter!! It's one of my Top 10 anticipated games for 2015 and it's live!!

Really not a lot going on this week game wise, only got to play two light party games, Ugg-Tect and Ca$h 'n Guns (second edition). Lots of helping family move, lots of sitting in bleachers watching Little Olympics and a little bit of celebrating an 11th birthday.





Games discussed:
Ca$h 'n Guns (second edition)
Ugg-Tect

Xenon Profiteer-https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/167427101/xenon-profite...
