Off Topic

First we start off with announcements as always (Josh is back too).  This is the last week of our current giveaway – so listen and enter! Chris is back to Kickstarting things again and we get challenged on whether you can get away with coming out as a spy in resistance.  Finally Chris finds a way to sneak in some talk of Too Many Bones.

On Topic

Well we try and figure out whats the differences between a campaign game and a legacy game.  I’m not sure we ever agree, but we do try.  We also talk about some of our favorites, Pandemic Legacy, Risk Legacy, Gloomhaven, Arcadia Quest and we confess that we’ve never played Decent, but should.

New vs. old.  Games we like vs. games we don’t know if we like.  Getting better at a game vs. trying out new games.  All this leads us into the Cult of the New vs the Cult of the Old.  Oh, and Sydnie joins us this week!

TGT 034: Board Games vs Video Games

This week we take a closer look at board games vs. video games.  What draws us to each and why might we play one over the other.

Off Topic

In our off topic segment we get some feedback from our last episode on board game geek.  We learn a few extra tricks and maybe even how a trade works.

We then answer a quick question about the cost of board games.

On Topic

We drill into the differences between board games and video games.  There were a number of times we may have looked like we were preferring one over the other, but in the end, we like them both.

SC 007 A Game In Depth: Pandemic Legacy

We finished it!  It took us 19 games and 6 real months, but we did it.  And we had a great time.  This episode we talk all about it.  And we spoil everything!  Don’t listen if you don’t want to have it spoiled.  But if you want to hear how things went for us, this is the episode.
