Botch Games Podcast

In the latest Episode of The New 100, Craig continues his seemingly endless journey to play 100 games he has never played before (or apparently one he hasn't played in over a decade, like a cheater). In this episode, he is flushed with confusion as there is no easy way to classigy the games he lumped together in this episode: some light, some heavy, some cards, some dice, a little of everything. Sit back and enjoy the chaos that is Craig in the studio alone.

In episode 58, Craig is joined by Matt Halstad from the League of Nonsensical Gamers to discuss collectible games, why we play them, why we love them, and why so much of our paychecks go to them. Craig is also joined by Tyler to discuss the games the family played and how can not be beaten at Neuroshima Hex. Enjoy the episode as Craig rides Matt's podcasting coattails to avoid doing any real work himself.
