This week I'm on someone else's show! BGGer Joe Saul-Sehy (Domino Man)
Joe Saul-SehyUnited States
has a humorous & informative podcast called Stacking Benjamins about personal finance and planning, and he invited me on to talk about boardgames. This guy knows money, is a long distance runner, appreciates Bloom County, rates Big City a 10, and has listened to Boardgames To Go since my beginnings. All good in my book! Too bad he lives halfway across the country from me--I'd like to play some games with him. Maybe the two of us will meet next year at BGG.con.
With the holidays coming up, games can be a good thing to bring out with family. For a long time they've had a reputation of being economical forms of entertainment. Whether that's still true for those of us with hundreds of titles in our collection hardly matters--we're having fun!
On the episode he asked me to give some quick suggestions for games about finance, as well as some party games. I thought it over and came up with For Sale, Chicago Express, and Power Grid, followed by Telestrations, Say Anything Family Edition, and Dixit.
Mark Johnson's occasional and opinionated podcast, Boardgames To Go, now has its own blog on Boardgamegeek.
