The 80th episode of the podcast is a weird one. My family has disappeared and I don't know where they went. Please, someone find them and make them play games with me. Seriously though, we haven't played games in over two weeks, so Erin and Tyler get a recording reprieve. For guests, though, Craig is joined by Kimberly Revia from The Cubist and Granite Game Summit and Ruth Boyack from the 5 By Games Podcast. In their chat, the three of them discuss building your own con and the work that goes into it being a successful venture. If you've ever wanted to have your own gig, at home or elsewhere, tune in for the sweet deets.

In the 77th EVER episode of the Botch Games Podcast, Craig is joined by two very special guests to talk about the ethics of transparency and honesty in content creation and discuss their thoughts on paid reviews. Spoiler, we're not fans. In the family segment, Craig is joined by Erin and Tyler to discuss the games they've been playing, break down their thoughts on Unlock vs Exit, and Tyler ruins Craig's punchline. Spoiler, he's sad. It's a great episode, and I'm so glad your earballs get to devour the goodness that awaits you!

Hey look, we still have a show! We're back from our hiatus and ready to roll with lots of new content! In this very fun episode, Craig is first joined by Erin and Tyler to wrap up all their Craig Con plays and hanging out with friends near and far. In the infamous third segment, Matt and Eric stop by and we lament our Gen Con absence while also talking about the interesting marketing maneuvers happening in board games in conjunction with Gen Con and also dish a little bit about the Fear Of Missing Out. We also run a contest for a copy of Rocky Road A La Mode from Green Couch games thank to the Punchboard Media Summer of Giveaways! Listen for details! In this episode, Craig also issues a retraction for some insensitive and ignorant comments in episode 75. He's got a big dumb mouth, and has been sufficiently flogged.

In episode 74, Craig is back once again to bring useless chatter to your earbuds. In this episode, he is joined by his lovely family, Erin and Tyler to talk about the so few, so so few, games they've played over the past two weeks. In the third segment, Craig is joined to two first timers from the What Did You Play This Week Podcast, Derek and Jamie to dig deep into connecting with the community, raising your children as board gamers, and lashing out against board game weight shamers. Haters gonna hate, but the discussion tells you why you shouldn't!

In episode 73, Craig is joined by Tyler and Erin, each in their own segments, to talk about the two weeks surrounding Origins 2017. In Tyler's section, He talks for ALMOST FORTY WHOLE MINUTES about the games he played at the con. If you thought that Tyler was a one trick pony, YOU WERE WRONG MY FRIEND! In the infamous third segment, Erin sits with Craig to talk about her weeks in games sans Craig before Craig himself debriefs over his week at Origins. BE WARNED! The segment is very stream of consciousness and highly introspective between the two of them. As a wrap up, we had a blast seeing and playing with everyone, and we can't wait until next year (but Craig has to be more emotionally prepared). SEE YOU NEXT TIME SUCKERS!
