Garrett's Games and Geekiness

This is the blog for the Garrett's Games and Geekiness weekly podcast. Started at the end of January 2006, Garrett's Games and Geekiness is my (Doug Garrett's) weekly podcast. Shelley, my wife, and I are joined occasionally by friends Ric Bretschneider, Greg Parker, Mark Jackson, Scott Alden, and game designers.

Shelley and I have a good time grinning through our first lighter game, but then cannot recommend our second, middle-weight game – at least for 2 players. Tune in to find out why!

Smile by Michael Schacht from Z-Man Games

and

Nusfjord by Uwe Rosenberg from Mayfair/Lookout Games
