Punching Cardboard Podcast

After gaming together regularly for several months we found we had almost as much fun discussing games after we played. Finding the conversations amusing, we decided to commit some to tape and create a podcast. We hope you enjoy them as well!

But before that extended jam hits we’ll chat about some recent boardgame expansions and German Whisky. We’ll even toss in a story about mirrors in Detroit to round out a full episode. We hope you enjoy.

Time passes quickly, leaving in its wake a trail of unanswered questions.

What was Heavy Con really like? Are the people of Denver as fragile as the Wicked Witch of the West? Are auteurs better at making games? Has Unfair received fair treatment? Can Whiskey be made in a castle. Why do we continue to enjoy Splotter games?

Well, have no fear about the unknown. We’re here to try and sort this mess out. Feel free to play along at home.

Listen to it here.

QUANDARIES:

00:04:46 — Heavy Con
00:19:15 — A Very Opulent Palace
00:20:28 — Colorado Rain
00:25:58 — Knappogue Castle 12yo Irish Single Malt
00:36:44 — Unfair (first take & rant)
01:07:14 — Q&A #1: HiFi
01:14:22 — Q&A #2: The Auteur vs. the Committee

Eric returns from his travels [it's good to be back folks!] for a classic PCP episode and we get down to doing what we do best. We have Tramways in-depth. We have rants. We have disagreements. We have things that went bad.

Add in some raves, some whisky and a meaty trick-taking card game and I believe all the boxes have been ticked. Much fun was had. No animals were hurt. It’s a win-win. Enjoy.

Listen to it here.

32:18 — New Pornographers, Deep Purple, Chuck Prophet, Vagabon, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Jesca Hoop

Episode 104 — I Landed on the Dog

In this episode we try to honor February, that month in which we unsuccessfully try to play games already played and on our shelves. After opening with an in-depth look at all Arkwright still has to offer, we dust off Bruxelles 1893, a 2013 title that has just been reprinted and can be found once again sitting on store shelves, beckoning all newcomers.

In-between we also discuss 1846, Fields of Despair and Jump Drive, all of which have been getting some serious play here in the land of punched cardboard.

We pepper all this game talk with a little whiskey and music because, well, whiskey and music. Art, architecture, trench warfare, railroads, stock markets, distilled grains, space, fuzzy guitars, Catalonian TV: Where else are you gonna get such disparate elements in one show? Have at it folks, and play nice.

Listen to it here.

ORDERS:

03:06 — Arkwright (revisited, with additions)
43:10 — Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition Irish Whiskey
46:01 — Whiskey 101-1 — Types and Grains
53:02 — 1846:The Race for the Midwest (First Take)
58:20 — Fields of Despair: France 1914-1918 (First Take)
68:10 — Jump Drive (First Take)
74:15 — Merli
76:36 — Japandroids, Near to the Wild Heart of Life
84:05 — Bruxelles 1893 (revisited, in-depth)

Your mission should you choose . . . wait. Umm, in a Galaxy far, far . . . no, not that (please, not that). Space, the final . . . uh-uh. Can anyone hear you scream in space? Who is Zarathustra, and why did he Also sprach? I think I’m running out of references here.

Anyway, here be episode 103 replete with an in-depth conversation about Spielworxx’s latest, Solarius Mission. We also get into what the future holds for our gaming lives, answer viewer mail, discuss what hit our tables during Portland’s snowpocalypse and drink some Bruichladdich classic whisky. Get your steak knives out.

Listen to it here.

Just like John Ford filming a classic western, we brave the elements to bring you episode 101 in all it’s Technicolor, widescreen glory. Winter may be wicked outside, but we’re moseying down the trail, single malt in hand, and we’re delivering the low down on a chuck wagon full of games, followed by a full dissection of what life’s like on The Great Western Trail.

Get ’em up.

Well, we made it. Episode 100. An epic journey culminating in an epic show. Yea us!

Yep, this one’s a long one, filled to the brim with hearty conversation. And while we do what we normally do, including covering two massive releases, Princes of the Renaissance and A Feast for Odin, we do take a few moments toward the end to acknowledge the milestone and heap some praise on ourselves (I mean, someone’s gotta do it).

Thanks to everyone who listens because you’re the people who really got us here. In other words, it’s your fault. Seriously, thank you all for tuning in. We really dig this show, and we hope it makes your day when it lands in whatever podcast app you use. Thank You.

Listen to it here.

20:00 — Princes of the Renaissance (1st impressions)
48:03 — In Search of James Hetfield — The New Metallica Album!
