That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!
Just posted my 50th podcast! Whew! For this one I brought back Mike Siggins to talk with me about Essen 2003 (which I attended) and Essen 2005 (which he attended). We talk about what games were considered the hits of both shows, and how they're looking nowadays. For the 2003 ones, that's been enough time for BGG ratings to settle in, and compare with the initial Fairplay Scout ratings.
