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!

Let me just say this: It’s just not nice to kill somebody’s dragon before he’s had any time to get to know that dragon. Giants, go for it, but leave the poor dragon alone.

We play a couple rounds of RuneWars and a few other American style games, and we survive to tell the tale. We also go off to war in Kemet’s version of ancient Egypt.

Unfortunately someone didn’t let Ralph live long enough to tell any tales. Mean. Just plain mean.

Spring Break is over and we are back to talk about board game expansions.

What do they add to game play? Are they worth it? Why such a big box? That little box is cute. Where the hell is the Trains expansion? I don’t like these giants. You’re sacrificing who to whom? You got your Carcassone in my Keyflower!

We want Trains, expanded!

Listen for the rain.

Firstly, we really like this episode and feel we were actually good this time out. B, we apologize for the length as we were so busy being good that we ignored the timer we set to constrain ourselves. Well, not so much ignored the timer as spat right in its face.

In our longest episode to date (and hopefully ever) we announce our Game of Tournaments, review The Agents, and dissect the Kickstarter experience. We do a lot of dissection here.

So please enjoy our Scorsese director’s cut of a show and watch for our Game of Tournaments post announcing the 16 games that will be competing for the Unplaced Worker award.

Listen to it here.

It’s a Cramer fest!

This week we discuss the merits of making Scotch whisky for clansmen up in Scotland, fighting France for the favor of King Henry, and sewing dresses for the French socialites we just, um, conquered for said King, while drinking the whisky we made, because, well, why make it if you’re not going to drink it, and will this sentence ever stop running?!?

What we’re trying to say is we look at several games designed by Matthias Cramer. Maybe we should stop drinking.

Listen to it here.

Yes, this was it: our show about nothing, our Seinfeld episode. See what the critics have to say.

“Not since the Pop-O-Matic have we been so enthralled.” ~ Gerbil Monthly
“Is this going on the air?” ~ Justin Bieber
“It was a discussion.” ~ BBC 13
“A few thoughts were completed.” ~ The Journal of Non-Sequitur Dining
“Frank Turner will never hang out with them.” ~ Tattoo Weekly

We promise to be much better next time out.

Listen to it here.

If you thought that when humans set up a colony on Mars we would have a group of industrious scientists working to unlock the secrets of the red planet, you were wrong. According to Travis R. Chance, we humans will do what we do best once we colonize Mars: Exploit and corrupt everything.

We cover the excellent game Infamy on this week’s show, and we get a little help from our friend Craige, who has recently become a hardcore analog game addict. He must’ve taken too much compound in his younger days.

Listen to it here.

Really, you’re sitting there with Candyland spread out on the table and the Wiggles on your stereo? Is this what it means to play board games with your young ones? Oh, the humanity!

Save Yourself!

Trust that your kids can handle something more, something deeper, something that makes you less likely to pack it all in. Throw Galaxy Trucker or Suburbia on the table and Magical Mystery Tour on the turntable (what, no turntable!?!?), and watch your children come alive.

Listen to it here.

Beware, low energy conversation ahead!

The dog days of August are an exaggeration. It’s the dog days of February that really get ya, and as our energy wanes we attempt an intelligent and critical discussion of Russian Railroads. We attempt. Yes, attempt.

Maybe Monday night isn’t the best time to attempt things.

Listen to it here.

Jim loses his bet that we wouldn’t make it to episode 10. We solve the mystery of the infamous Segway death. And we discuss our first Kickstarter game, which propels us into a dystopian future that makes utopias look pretty lame.

Plus, we give Canadians heck for sending us their garbage musicians while keeping the good stuff for themselves.

Where else will you hear “the commodity tokens are adorable.”

Listen to it here.

Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized bone catapults or one bone-catapult-shaped duck?

Or, as an alternative to dying either way, would you rather listen to this podcast? ”Just look at those bones in the middle there.”

All in All a very difficult decision, one similar to the decisions that will break your brain in Vlaada Chvatil’s latest invention. All of this is discussed within.

Listen to it here.
