That's a Palm Pilot on the left, and a pink iPod mini on the right. Yes, I've been doing BGTG that long!

In the podcast I asked for suggestions about what to do for my podcasts upcoming 10-year anniversary. That's right, 10 years?! Can you believe it? I can't, and I'm the one doing it all these years. Recently I was even reminded that I said on the podcast that I never expected it to last this long. Yet here I am, and I don't plan to stop.

First episode, March 3, 2005

What I need, though, are suggestions for how I should commemorate my own 10th anniversary. I think mine is actually the longest running boardgame podcast, since Geekspeak was first but eventually stopped. I'm pretty sure Tom's Dice Tower was 3rd, and we all know how successful he's become. In between those two behemoths squeezes my little podcast with its "longest running" honors. I'm proud of that!

What should I do? The actual anniversary is on March 3rd, and I'll aim for a podcast that month to commemorate it.

I think you should have Dave Arnott interview you about how you feel about the hobby, this many more years in. How are you looking at your future in the hobby? Now that you're SO OLD, what place do you think games will have in your life moving forward?

Obviously, this should be the famed "later show" in which you address every single topic that you postponed by saying "That's a subject for another episode."

I think you have enough time before March 3rd to comb through every show and make note of all those promises, right?

Cover the topic: Here are my favorite (newer) games and here are the qualities they share with my old favorites (listing which ones and how).

How about a top 10 of games you actually do hate?
OK, kidding aside, a show about your show and games played over the years with as many of your previous guests and co-hosts would be cool.
