Board Game Chats

Board Game Chats is a podcast where we talk to board gamers just like you!

Fresh off their successful Kicksarter campaign, Chris and Myron welcome new Canadian game designers Pauline Kong and Marie Wong to the show. Marie & Pauline’s first game - Steam Up: A Feast of Dim Sum is a delightful Dim Sum themed set collection game where the player who leaves the table with the fullest belly wins. Myron had the pleasure of learning the game from Pauline during this year’s Gen Con, and Chris was interested in the game after seeing the first teaser for it nearly two years ago. Pauline & Marie are board game enthusiasts who channeled their love of gaming into creating a new game based on their experience with friends and family sharing Dim Sum.

Join Chris & Myron as they learn about how the duo successfully got their Kickstarter funded in 33 minutes, how they came to work together doing magic shows, and how Steam Up delivers a culturally authentic game experience.

You can find Marie & Pauline at hotbananagame.com, Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/hotbananagame) and Twitter (@hotbananagame).

    Board Game Chats

    Board Game Chats is a podcast where we talk to board gamers just like you!

    In this episode Chris and Myron welcome Toronto Game Designer, Christopher Chung to the show. Christopher’s first game, Lanterns: The Harvest Festival is one of host Chris’ personal favorites to teach and play. It’s a beautiful game that uses perspective in a clever way which allows players the opportunity to participate every turn. Like many other guests, Christopher’s journey with modern board games began with an introduction to Catan and blossomed from there into game design.

    Join Myron and Chris as they learn about Christopher’s “dream-team”, his agile approach to design, and his future plans for upcoming events (like Protospiel North 2021 and Breakout 2022).

    A special note of thanks to Steven Sauer, Erica Hayes-Bouyouris and Daryl Andrews for their help with research for this episode.

    You can find Christopher on Facebook (@cchung2112), Twitter (@CChungGames) and BGG (Christerical).

    We really hate to have to talk about this so early...

    However, we are hearing from all of our suppliers that they are anticipating worldwide potential product shortages and shipping delays that could affect the holiday season.

    From gallery of zuzusdad


    So please, expect delays in production and shipping and please place your orders early.

    We don't want anyone disappointed this holiday season.
