Random thoughts on board gaming with my family and friends. I'm a recent convert to the board gaming community, and I am trying to introduce my wife, daughters and friends to some great games to get them over to board gaming as well.
This is now the Blog here on BGG for my personal posts, not for The What Did You Play This Week Podcast Thing information. I'm not sure why I didn't separate the two before, I will probably cross post these this week and maybe next week so folks can switch subscriptions if they like but will soon only post Podcast stuff over there, and more of my personal blog stuff here.
Welcome to Week 73, we're back below 2 hours for this week, we can't make any promises about next week as I know we have another Meet the Gamer Segment with Jessica Wade on that one and possibly another interview as well if everything goes well, fingers crossed, but that's next week, we're here to find out about this week, here we go!

Week 72, man, I couldn't decide if I was going to break these interviews up or not, but ultimately I went with it this way and that makes it just a tad shy of 2 1/2 hrs, but I think it's a fantastic 2 1/2 hours, I honestly do. Next week will be shorter, I promise, no Meet the Gamer Segment and no other interviews, but Week 74 is looking a bit long again. Home Away Boston 2016 fundraiser-Paul Leoncavallo

And just for those who read all the way to the bottom, I fibbed, there is another Meet the Gamer Segment this coming week, kind of happened on short notice, but it was too good to pass up, so next week we get to meet
Week 69 is a little over an hour of What Did You Play This Week Podcast Thing goodness, we've got all the usual suspects plus a new voice for you all, Mike Risley. Along the way we talk a lot of games in 60ish minutes so buckle up, this one goes by pretty quickly.
Hello and welcome to Week 67 of the What Did You Play This Week Podcast Thing, we’ve got an overfilled episode of Board Gaming fun in store for you so I hope you packed your comfortable headphones as the episode was already approaching an hour and a half before we even recorded my family’s portion of the show so I expect that when this is done we’ll be close to the 2 hour mark, I hope everyone is okay with that. We won’t make it an every week thing, but I think you’ll like this one. So, why is this episode so over extended, well first up, we have all of our normal segments, Eric is going to review Entropy and Derek is back with the Voyages of Marco Polo and the small expansion, plus Patrick went out and landed us an interview with the wonderfully affable Stephen Buonocore which easily could have gone over 2 hours, we had so many things to ask that we left out so I hope that he means it when he says that he’d be happy to come back any time, plus we bring back the Meet the Gamer segment with another fantastic guy, Bill Corey Jr. Whew, I’m out of breath just talking about what we’ve got coming! Along with all that, I hosted a game day at our local library on Saturday so I’ve got a handful of games to jabber about and Kerensa and I will sit down and talk a bit about Letters from Whitechapel which I was inspired to dust off and play thanks to The Tattered Board Podcast. Look for a blog post about that coming in the next week as well as I think it may be a review from us or just a big overview. It’s been nearly 11 days since I have posted something to the blog, something that I need to do more regularly so I apologize to any of you that look forward to reading as well as listening.
Week 63 is here and we're rolling in February already. We've got a preview of the new Green Couch Game game Wok on Fire which is coming to Kickstarter, we've got Patrick talking about gaming online, Eric discusses the jackassery that is game shaming and Derek wraps up the final week of his Evolving Review of Mage Knight.
Welcome to Week 62 of the WDYPTW Podcast Thing and welcome to February and a new beginning. We have joined the Pathological Nerdcasters Network www.pncn.rocks be sure to visit the page and show everyone some love over there! Thank you to Jason Hancock for the invite! Looks like a great group of folks to network with and work with to make each other a bit better every week.
**NOTE-THERE IS A 10 SECOND GAP IN THE PROGRAM RIGHT AFTER PATRICK'S CONTRIBUTION, I WAS BATTLING GREMLINS ALL EVENING GETTING THIS PUT TOGETHER AND THAT SOMEHOW SLIPPED THROUGH, MY APOLOGIES.**
3:48 Patrick kicks us off this week, thought we'd do something a bit different this week just kind of due to things that happen to us all. So no review this week from Patrick, just a little life talk. Also I do mention Paul Leoncavallo and his current fund raising efforts for Home Away Boston, please check them out here -->https://www.crowdrise.com/homeawayboston2016/fundraiser/paul...
