That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!

With a little luck, I may get to be a guest on others' podcasts or videocasts during my time away from BGTG. When that happens, I'll post something here on my blog. It's obviously not MY show, but if you like hearing what I have to say about games, you can get some of it here. This year, I was again lucky enough to be part of the Game Night! crew's avalanche of episodes for the Spiel des Jahres, Kennerspiel des Jahres, and Kinderspiel des Jahres. The latter was posted a couple weeks ago, while the main & Kenner award shows were just posted now. Sometimes I feel like the curmudgeon when I get to be on Game Night!, since that videocast is about sharing the enjoyment & appreciation of our games, while I can't get out of critic mode. Working in my favor, though, is the fact that I'm getting to play games with friends I don't see often enough. So it's a fun time regardless.

(Can anyone geekmail me how to CENTER this row of user avatars in BGG formatting?!)


First up is the summary show about the Spiel des Jahres and Kennerspiel des Jahres. Lincoln, Nikki, Dave, Aaron, and I share our opinions about all six nominees, then go on record with our predictions & favorites. A while ago we did the same in a different episode featuring the Kinderspiel nominees.






Here are links to the other episodes where the nominated games were actually played. I was on a few of these, too.

If you're so inclined, please subscribe to the YouTube channel for Boardgamegeek. Lincoln always says that the more subscribers they get, the more control YouTube gives them over how their content is managed & displayed.

Thanks to the entire Game Night! gang, especially hosts Lincoln & Nikki for letting me crash their studio and pontificate with them about some fantastic games.

-Mark
