Podcast Roundup

It’s back to the daily grind. An extra day off was rather nice. And it’s never a bad time to reflect on where the US was and how far we’ve come, but we still have so far to go. But, in the meantime, gaming. (hey, I don’t like the site being political, so there). Seeing as it’s Tuesday, the work week got a bit of a jump with that day off. So let’s see if we can make this short week feel shorter by listening to gaming podcasts while we go about our daily routines.

This week we have: Game Classy Episode 154: Spoilers; One Board Podcast S1E09: Gotcha Games, Dexterity Mechanic, Junk Art Review; Man Battlestations Podcast Episode 26; Meeples & Miniatures Episode 239: Gaming Review of 2017; Epic Gaming Night Podcast Episode 140: Assembly Required; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 135: Gaia Project, Topiary, Codenames Disney, Passport to Culture; The Cardboard Herald Episode 62: Tristan Hall of Hall or Nothing Productions; Lords of the Dungeon Episode 11: How Long RPG Campaigns Should Last and Dark Earth 1899; SAGA THORSDAY Episode 72: Moors Battleboard and Tactics Pt 2; Blue Peg, Pink Peg Episode 114: Lisboa & 2018 Board Gaming Predictions/Resolutions; The D6 Generation Episode 229: Smirk & Dagger Update and Tech Talk; and The Polyhedron Collider Cast Episode 36: The Games We Are Looking Forward To In 2018.

Well, we’re a day and change into 2018. I hope yours is going well. I’ve already managed to stub my toe so bad that I lost a toenail and whanged my elbow good enough that my left hand’s still a bit tingly. So, needless to say, I’m off to a great start. At this rate, I expect to be in a full body cast by March. O,o
So, while I still have full use of my appendages, let me get you some podcasts to listen to for this first week of the year.

Review Roundup

It’s Saturday. Usually, that would mean gaming. But Friday meant gaming for me, as a friend came over after work and we played some Guild Ball, Bunny Kingdom, and Apotheca. Great way to spend a Friday. So, what am I up to Saturday? Well, I’m in the CMON Offices, helping pack orders for the holiday sale. Yeah, seems people loved those deep cuts. And since I feel partially responsible (as the one they tasked with actually changing the prices on all those things), I felt it only right to help pack everything up. But while I get orders together, I know you’re here for a heaping helping of reviews. Heaping helping because we didn’t have a Roundup last week, due to the holiday.

So, this week we’ve got: Near and Far, Queendomino, The Oregon Trail: Hunt for Food, Dog Might Games Traveler Dice Tower, Campy Creatures, Camel Up, A Game of Thrones Card Game, Colt Express, Truth Bombs, Ex Libris, Star Trek: 5-Year Mission, Slide Blast, Happy Salmon, DownForce, Smash Up iOS, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time, Ink Monsters, The Quest for El Dorado, Reef Route, Crabs, Werewords, Fog of Love, Museum Heist, Crosstalk, Potato Pirates, Tulip bubble, The Chameleon, Ulm, Asset Drop Subscription Box, Tortuga 1667, Dwar7s Fall, The Expanse, Tokyo Highway, and Ulock!

In a way, it’s Wednesday, because it’s the middle of the work week for me. In a way, it’s Thursday, because it’s the penultimate day of the work week for me. But in several ways, it’s Tuesday, because it’s the 2nd day of the work week for me, and I’m also in my Tuesday shirt and… y’know… it legitimately being Tuesday and all… And, seeing as it’s Tuesday, it means it’s time to get you all those Podcasts I know you love listening to.

Let’s see if the system decides to eat this one or not. Anyway, it’s Saturday, and that means I’m happy. I’ve been doing various domestic things this morning in order to be ready for when a friend comes over for some gaming (Guild Ball and Ascension are the most-likely games to be played).

Usually, I’m all like, “hey! It’s Saturday! Go get your gaming on!” and, in a way, I’m still that. But I’m also, “It’s the Saturday before Gen Con… … … I Have So Many Things I Still Need To Do!!!” A couple people have asked me, “are you ready for the show?” My answer is, “you’re never ‘ready’ for Gen Con. You’re where you are in your attempt to be ready, and then the show starts happening, whether you got all you needed done or not.” But I am doing my best to have as much done as possible. That includes getting you your reviews I know you all so desperately desire.

Well, it’s Saturday. My day was looking like it might be a bit dull, but then a friend was like, “Hey, let’s have everyone come over and game.” and I was like, “done and done.

I don’t know what it is about Tuesday that I like. Maybe it’s just that it’s “not Monday.” But it feels like the week’s good and underway. Like, “that mess yesterday’s over with.

I’m sure you all know that I’m not really frantically typing out posts and making sure to hit the “publish” button right as the hour strikes. No, I get these things put in ahead of time… so I can be frantically typing on some other article I need to write or working on a proofing project or something. 😛

But, but but… it’s Wednesday!
I know. I know. But this has been a strange week. Got home from the Expo the other day and spent the first part of Monday at the mechanic to get my car checked out. Then got home and found that, due to a crack in my tub underneath my bathmat, water had been leaking into my bedroom closet. Apparently, it’s been doing it for a while, since the carpet and several boxes were moldy (I lost a whole box of 3.5 and a couple 4.0 D&D books). Then there was the server migration and… yeah, I am ready for the weekend. So, as I sit, waiting for the repairmen to come over to resurface my bathtub, I’m going to pop on some gaming podcasts. Yes, it’s a day late, but better late than never.

I don’t know about you, but my Monday went by in a flash. It seemed I’d just clocked in when it was already almost time to go. But having a very busy day will do that.

Not that I dislike what I do. I love TGN. But… I mean… weekend! I’m sure even professional ice cream taste-testers and puppy-petters are excited for the weekend. Anyway, a way that I’ve found to make that weekend feel like it’s getting here quicker is to listen to some gaming podcasts.
