For any of you who listen to boardgame podcasts you might have heard of a little podcast being distributed out of Indianapolis by the name of The Spiel. Stephen Conway and Dave Coleson are real boardgame lovers and it's a real treat to hear them talk about games with so much passion.

Well, in their 47th episode they tried something completely crazy. They decided to bring in some friends (David Schuth, Jason Ober, & Mark Weaver) and play boardgames non-stop for 24 hours. Insane? Perhaps. Entertaining? Absolutely! So here is a complete list of the games played, how long the game took, and who won. If you haven't checked out this podcast this episode might be a real treat for you to get aquainted with these gamers.

So that's all! 20 games in just over 24 hours.

I should point out that every one of these was a learning game for at least 1 person at the table, usually more than 1 person. This greatly affected the playtime. Also they stopped to record a short segment for the podcast which I just added into the playtime each time.

It is a lot of fun to listen to. Also, they did a brief overview of each of the games too, so as you listen you can also find out more about these games. So if you're interested check it out!
