It's Episode 83! I bet you thought it would take more than two weeks to come out, didn't you? SUCKERS! I should have bet you money, even if it was a conflict of interest in a way, but still! I would have beaten you! In this SUPER ON TIME episode, Craig is joined by the family to hear Erin whine about legacy games, Tyler sneak in something about spagoot, and Craig works to convince Erin he isn't blaming her for hating legacy games. In the INFAMOUS Third Segment, Nolan Nasser stops by to talk about board game art and artists and talk about his new company, Deep Water Games and their upcoming release schedule. Nolan is a joy and you should all work hard to know him, for reals. See you next time, heroes! Wait, that's already taken...

The holiday hiatus is over and we've made it to 2018! In this episode, the family carries on it's usual tradition of listing of their top 5 games they played in 2017.

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.
