Our award-nominated comedy podcast uncovers the hidden indie gems you’ll wonder how you ever lived without, dives deep into the franchises you already know and love, and talks about pretty much everything that’s worth talking about from the worlds of board games, videogames, comicbooks, movies, TV, literature, and beyond.

00:00 - How you might know if you’re Unbreakable. 04:38 - Burgle Bros 2: The Casino Capers from Tim Fowers, is the sequel to a board game we first talked about on Episode 1 way back in 2016. Playing as a team of criminals on a caper, sneaking about and trying not to cause a commotion, this impressive follow up to the first game has been well worth the wait. 15:42 - Games you'll put in a bag (working title). 18:36 - The puzzle-like, reverse labyrinth board game Bandido from Helvetiq and Coiledspring Games has a small footprint, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quality. 23:05 - The understudy for bread. 29:47 - What the f*** is OUTRIDERS, eh? We find out more about Square Enix’s always online combination of Gears of War and Borderlands, how it relates to Cowboy Bebop, and if it’s really a cover-based shooter if it doesn’t want you to stay in cover? 42:59 - Solo tabletop roleplaying in Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu, with Alone Against the Dark, a 7+ hour long openworld-ish gamebook of cosmic horror, deadly encounters, and timekeeping. All that, and chocolate bar conspiracies, with Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Mark (@lithiumproject). A big thank you to Mark Robinson for joining us. You’ll no doubt remember him from Ep85, or from his excellent video game podcast, Link To The Cast. It’s available on all major podcast platforms, and we highly recommend you give it a listen, including Episode 200, which has a whole lot of wonderful guests (plus Pete) talking about their favourite games of the Xbox One/PlayStation 4 generation.

00:00 - The great fountain pen hack of the 1990s. 03:02 - MicroMacro: Crime City from Pegasus Spiele is a curious mix of Agatha Christie, Where’s Wally?, and the EXiT series, that just keeps on giving. 15:25 - Joining the PlayStation 5 club, the most exclusive club of them all right now, surely? Also: how (and why) the PS5 tries its best to keep you playing. 34:39 - Control: Ultimate Edition is creatively risky and every bit is expertly crafted, making it a strong contender for the best AAA game of the last ten years. 45:27 - The Red Cathedral is from Llama Dice, and it’s all about Saint Basil's Cathedral (the one with the “ice gems”). It’s beautiful, and it’s super thematic. 58:11 - How 2 rite propa All that, and a niche joke about the Freemasons, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero), and Sam (@MrSamTurner).

00:00 - Deus ex macbina. 06:54 - The complicated backstory of Bananaman. 10:46 - A bit more on Polis, which we talked about back on Ep122. 15:00 - Seastead’s “altruistic competition”, flexibility in ruleset, and focus on inclusivity is a wonderful special event for two players, from WizKids. 33:28 - Holidaying in virtual worlds, and going for a relaxing wander with Eastshade, where the side quests just might be the main quests. 49:18 - tobyfox's Undertale, and why an annoying dog is representative of so much that’s truly amazing about this gem of an RPG. All that, and apex predator trash cans, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Pete (@PeteySteele). Thanks again to Pete Steele for joining us. You can (and should!) listen to the excellent show he does with Andrew Miller called Two Can Play That Game - a brilliant board game podcast that focuses on playing and reviewing two player games.

00:00 - The magpie. 08:18 - A birthday and a dirge. 20:54 - Relaxed yet competitive, chilled yet tense, Celtic is a set collection game for the family from The Plastic Soldier Company and Pegasus Spiele that, on paper, shouldn’t work, but it really does. And why there’s a lot of value in going back to old board game mechanics. 35:03 - Most manga is rubbish. Finding good manga for grown ups is difficult. But Space Brothers from Kodansha? It’s consistently excellent, slice of life sci-fi. Plus: more manga recommendations. 46:15 - Michaela Kienle and Michael Menzel’s Legends of Andor, published by Kosmos, is absolutely incredible: it’s sprawling and epic, completely approachable, perfect for the whole family, and something to savour. All that, and a shower, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and Sam (@MrSamTurner).

00:00 - Dan’s birthday, Rudy’s Pizza, and Many More. 06:49 - Kris's "Consumption to Creation Ratio". Freaking ourselves out with Chris Bissette’s The Wretched, making memories with Thousand Year Old Vampire from Tim Hutchings, and writing poetry with Allison Arth’s Gentleman Bandit. 26:26 - Kosmos Games throw down the gauntlet with Polis, from Fran Diaz and Enrique Corominas - the art for which you can see on our Instagram. It’s a big, heady, heavy experience, where every decision you make has its consequence, and we love it. 43:30 - Exploring the superb resource that is Taming Gaming from Andy Robertson, which highlights video games that examine various themes through a number of lenses, including how suitable for the whole family they are. All that, and a smart skipping rope, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and Sam (@MrSamTurner).

00:00 - We like to eat eat eat Apples and Bananas. We lake to ate, ate, ate ay-ples and ba-nay-nays. 07:14 - Daylife in Japan is a cheap and very cheerful jigsaw puzzle game we’ve played on Switch, by Minimol Games and QUByte Interactive. Want a meditative game to play while listening to audiobooks? This might just be it. 20:43 - Wolfgang Kramer and Michael Kiesling’s Renature is a wonderfully relaxing experience with just enough salt in the pancake (by which we mean “competitiveness”) to lift it to great heights. Also: a big hello to our podcasting pals at Two Can Play That Game. 33:06 - What’s YOUR favourite castle? And have you ever seen Dan and King Ludwig II in the same room together...? 38:30 - A love letter to Bezier Games, Stonemaier Games’ Between Two Castles Of Mad King Ludwig is also super relaxing, and might just be better than the originals they’re taking inspiration from. You can see what it looks like on our Instagram, along with Kris’s completed jigsaw of the Moon. 46:53 - We’ve had two-part question in from @MyTaintedBrain, who asks “What is your favourite genre of board/video game, and what is the last book you read that you really enjoyed? Thanks pal! All that, and dad jokes about The Wiggles, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and Sam (@MrSamTurner).

00:00 - A jigsaw of the Moon. 06:54 - How to play Lost Cities wrong. Very wrong. And incorporating baby-friendly player aids into board games. 12:35 - Reiner Knizia’s Schotten Totten 2 is more thematic, more focused, and easier to get others into it than its previous iteration. 23:08 - A true centrepiece for any happening party. 26:32 - Disney’s new WandaVision TV series is shaping up to be a unique and brave entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 41:20 - Horribly painful car troubles. 50:58 - Frog Detective 2: The Case of the Invisible Wizard was exactly the right game at exactly the right time: it’s short, sharply written, and thoroughly lovely throughout. All that, and Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and Sam (@MrSamTurner).

00:00 - Sam's mug. 04:54 - Kris's mattress. 09:02 - Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, a high concept spy thriller that’s “the first time travel movie”, but perhaps it doesn’t explain itself enough? 27:12 - Knights and Bikes is from Double Fine and Foam Sword, and it’s a completely riotous co-op craftpunk adventure with a great sense of humour. 44:00 - HeidelBÄR’s Coyote and Spicy are brilliant bluffing games with gorgeous artwork that has to be seen to be believed (and reminds us of an animated Johnny Cash...) 57:20 - How a new habit gets started... but will it be a good one? All that, and the #SourceOfAllWisdom, with Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and Sam (@MrSamTurner).

00:00 - New Year's Resolutions Part 1, plus a hot take on Final Fantasy XII. 05:22 - Star Wars: Squadrons is an enjoyably arcade-y VR flight sim that really surprised us. 16:46 - New Year's Resolutions Part 2, cracking eggs, smashing glutes, and Hobbits with trundle wheels. 23:37 - The Mandalorian, and why you don’t have to know anything about Star Wars to enjoy it. 37:22 - What if you could time travel, but no one would believe you if you told them what you saw? When and where would you travel to? Because we have thoughts. 44:41 - Solving picture mysteries with Murder by Numbers, and why Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered is the antithesis of scrolling through Netflix. All that, and why we’re Paul the Octopus, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and Sam (@MrSamTurner). Oh! And!

00:00 - Top tips for job interview success. 04:14 - Secret Santa, part 1 - powered by Mr Lister's Quiz Shootout from Big Potato Games (plus a little bit on Thousand Year Old Vampire too). 12:45 - Looking at ladders on the loo. 15:21 - Secret Santa, part 2 - with thoughts on Fungi/Morels. 24:16 - Abandon All Artichokes from Gamewright is a light and breezy deck building game that everyone who likes board games should own. 33:51 - Gather nine people, pay $450, and spend a couple of days studying lean methodologies, and you’ll be ready for GetKanban, a surprisingly entertaining education tool crossed with a board game. 42:12 - Saashi & Saashi’s Coffee Roaster is an informative, innovative, and very very premium solitaire bag building game that’s taught us a whole bunch about the brew (and taken up a large portion of a table). 50:23 - Secret Santa, part 3 - and a compromising look at Kompromat from Helvetiq. 01:01:16 - Like social deduction games? Enjoy video games? Been living under a rock for the last month? We reckon you’ll be pleased to hear about Innersloth’s Among Us. And if you don’t, you’re sus. 01:11:48 - Secret Santa, part 4 - plus expanding on Colt Express with Marshal & Prisoners from Ludonaute, and a cowboy hat. 01:17:55 - Probably the best launch game on PlayStation 5, a showcase for the new hardware, and a love letter to the history of PlayStation: we talk ASTRO's Playroom and get all misty-eyed for the Multitap. All that, and Collect No Carrots, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and Sam (@MrSamTurner).

00:00 - Crunchy Nut Peanut Butter and very thick milk. 06: 42 - A cartoon-like, one page RPG that is tremendous fun: we’ve played Honey Heist by Grant Howitt and had a great time with some bears in hats. 18:57 - Squirty cream “as a vehicle”. 23:30 - Taking early steps into FIFA 20’s Ultimate Team (and its similarities to Pro Evo’s Master League mode), playing with friends with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, doing cool skids in Lonely Mountains: Downhill, and other paternity cover games. 35:16 - Up for some co-opetition? Rome & Roll from PSC Games is delicious and satisfying, and not just because it reminds us of cheese, dough, and tomato sauce. 48:06 - Illimat from The Decemberists and Keith Baker is the kind of game John Dee (Queen Elizabeth I’s court astronomer) would play. Intrigued? You should be, and we’ll tell you all about this strange and brilliant board game. All that, and they’re grrrrroggy!

00:00 - What’s that banging? What day is it? How old is Sam? 05:32 - And for that matter, what’s your favourite era of time? 11:40 - TRAINS! We talk Ticket to Ride and the digital adaptation of it that we’ve been thoroughly enjoying. 16:20 - Cóatl is crammed full of bright and lovely plastic, has a very pleasing Aztec art style, and is a super elegant bit of game design that’s one of the best in its genre. 25:15 - The Lost Words from Kosmos is based on the children’s book by Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane. It’s a beautifully illustrated, tranquil, light game that’s perfect for high tea. 35:59 - The avoidance of doomscrolling by getting into Reddit - shout out to r/Showerthoughts and r/OSR - plus a discussion about a fantastic post about board games and value. 51:00 - Bingeing Taskmaster (tARskmARster) is exactly what’s needed at the moment. Also if you’re interested in the self portraits Peter and Sam made, pop over to our Instagram.

00:00 - An intensely heated debate: is a Twix a biscuit or a chocolate bar? 07:53 - Tapestry: Plans and Ploys continues to build upon the foundations of the lean(ish) civilization-creating original, and also continues Stonemaier Games’ tradition of featuring beautiful components. 21:07 - Some grumps bang on about how they don’t like Halloween, and an alternative is discussed: Falloween. 31:08 - The Three Stages of Boardgaming, solitaire games, and David Parlett’s Penguin-related money-making schemes. 35:30 - Coiledspring and Gamewright’s Metro X gives us flashbacks to the London Underground and mastering a tube map. Plus: very good nibs. 42:19 - Super-Skill Pinball: 4-Cade is from Wizkids and Geoffrey Engelstein (the Ludology podcast, Gametek, Pit Crew etc). It’s “giddy fun” and, we think, perhaps the perfect solo game. All that, and a spooky podcast pitch, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero).

00:00 - Forgetting names and confusing idioms. 03:10 - A graduation, but whose graduation? 06:10 - Making rum, plus the sweetly thematic Fort from Leder Games, in which you pretend to be kids building bases, using pizza and toys to curry favour with Icky and Sticky. 17:44 - Al's FINEST wine and socially distanced martial arts. 21:52 - From humble packaging comes something we had a ton of fun with; Coiledspring’s Anomia is an extremely good party game. 30:50 - Twin It. Love it. 33:11 - Enola Holmes is fantastic, and Millie Bobby Brown brings a welcome level of handiness to the character. 38:42 - Back to school. 41:10 - Our time with Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game pretty much started with a total party wipe. And it. Was. Awesome. It’s glorious. All that, and the wonderful Richard from the We’re Not Wizards podcast (@werenotwizards), with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero).

00:00 - The Home Alone Meal Deal, and first movies. 09:13 - Hotshot Racing looks and sounds great, the racing model is spot on, but you’ll want to put most of your time into the time trial mode, and we’ll tell you why. Also, go watch Get Indie Gaming. 20:57 - Every Breath You Take. Every Slice You Make. 27:45 - Pendulum from Stonemaier Games (them what did Viticulture) is a “rollercoaster” of a board game, a superb experiment in the worker placement genre, and perhaps the perfect board game cafe game. 45:39 - Eulogy For Brannigans. 48:48 - Stay Cool is from the same folk that brought you Decrypto, and if that’s not enough to sell you on it, then you’ll just have to listen to the podcast for more insight into why we like it, I guess. All that, and Adele, with Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero). Want some tea-themed Spotify playlists? Of course you do! Pop to our Spotify playlist page for those.

00:00 - The Egg Saga. 09:40 - A trip to Vale Street in Bristol, and leaving the house for a curry. 12:28 - Ghost of Tsushima, Akira Kurosawa, and the satisfaction of feeling powerful when playing as a samurai. 22:37 - An amazing quad biking adventure in Greece. Top tip: check your headlights before setting out. 28:23 - Set dressing the house and tackling the play-it-at-home escape room Art Heist, from The Fantastic Factory’s TRAPPED series. 38:00 - Sabotage is yet another absolute humdinger of a board game from Fowers Games, and how to spend an extra £500 on it by buying a brand new table. Plus when Kris met Tim on We’re Not Wizards. 49:55 - Getting our cartographer juices flowing by making overworld maps for Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game by using Hex Kit by Cone Of Negative Energy as an “inspiration generator”. 01:03:17 - The debate continues.

00:00 - Fridge biscuits and a shocking revelation about eggs. 08:59 - Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, why it’s Fortnite crossed with Takeshi's Castle, and its obvious similarities with The Last of Us Part II. 26:59 - With UK Games Expo going digital this year - calling it Virtually Expo - we were asked by our pals at Kosmos if we wanted to be part of their booth. We did! And we talk about how our video about food and board games pairings turned out. 33:29 - Fans of Portal, The Stanley Parable, and The Witness are going to really like Pillow Castle’s Superliminal, which plays with scale in a smart and sometimes hilarious way. 41:39 - If you’re getting into the hobby of board games, Reiner Knizia’s name comes up a whole bunch, being considered one of the very best designers in the business. His legacy game is called My City, and we think it’s a great “My First Legacy Game” for people looking to try out the sub-genre.

Can you guess who? 15:08 - We play a spot of the phenomenal party game Herd Mentality from Big Potato, which are the same folks behind Don’t Get Got, which we talked about back in Episode 95. 26:52 - A desire to get into woodworking, and a love of astronomy? ... or was it astrophysics? ... or was it astrology? 31:51 - Dan's Haircut and a Glastonbury story. 38:42 - Alley Cat Games’ Pocket Sub, Gamelyn Games’ Ultra-Tiny Epic Galaxies, and the appeal of small box games. All that, and learning the impossible, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero). OH! AND!

00:00 - 15,000 who-gives-a-toss credits. 11:21 - Skater XL is an entirely skill-driven skating simulation and it's been fascinating seeing it progress from Early Access to full release. Plus the year extreme sports games started coming back, and our history with the best in the genre - y'know, stuff like Skate, Thrasher: Skate and Destroy, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. 29:13 - A smashing yurting holiday, the joys of outdoor BBQ, getting all excited about pizza ovens, and the luxury of indoor toilets. 32:51 - Caliber Comics has a new horror anthology called Descent into Dread: Vol. 1 up for pre-order on Comixology and in print on Amazon, and we've been sent a copy for an early look. And it's been lovely to dip in and out of its genre-blurring, expectation subverting stories. 42:42 - We've been exploring the superb two player series of games from Kosmos. Lost Cities is a game that gets a ton of table time, Kahuna gets better and better the more you play with the same player, and what we think just might be the ultimate two player game: Targi. All that, and pizza-related activities, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero). OH! AND!

00:00 - Exciting adventures with caffeine. 07:33 - "The Enid Blyton and George R. R. Martin crossover you didn't know you needed"... we finally get to play asymmetrical strategy game Root from Leder Games, via the wonderful Board Beans board game cafe. 18:47 - Hypnospace Outlaw, whether or not Zane rocks (he doesn't), the Space Jam website, and an explanation of what Yahoo! GeoCities was. 29:47 - Uncomfortable haircuts and a betrayal (sorry Tony). 33:35 - The best Pringles, plus "flip and write" Kennerspiel des Jahres nominee Cartographers: A Roll Player Tale from Thunderworks Games. 49:30 - A question from @lonegamesman, who asks: "do you consider Kickstarter (board game, video game or other form of project) a force for good or the downfall of civilisation? Or maybe something in between? Do you like what Kickstarter offers as a potential backer?" All that, and six pockets full of despair, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero).
