Botch Games Podcast (games)

It's that time again, it's time for a new episode! I'm sure you're as surprised as me, and I'm the one posting this. In this not-at-all-special episode, you get the usual crew in the third segment talking about a few games, but mainly chatting about the periphery surrounding games. It's a thing, right? Tyler stops by in the third segment and, whether you want to believe it or not, he actually talks! Hope you enjoy and talk to you soon~

In this, the 97th episode of the Botch Games podcast, we begin with some troubling news: we've put out another episode. Like, who does this, keeps at something this long, almost four years, in some Sisyphean hellscape? Ah well, at least Craig is joined by some wonderful people. Like his lovely wife Erin, who is currently on a 134 game win streak against her ne'er do well husband. Or how about Matt and Derek, making the third segment now 100% full of dads. Enjoy the episode, your medal is in the mail.

Craig is back again with a new episode for your lovely ears. In this episode he celebrates the return of his lovely wife, Erin, to the program after a long and tiring hiatus. Needless to say there's a lot of games to be discussed. In the third segment Matt and Derek are back again and the conversation quickly turns from games to rulebooks to Star Wars to inserts to games. It's a wild ride.

Welcome to the longest Botch Games Podcast that has existed in a very long time. Here you thought just over an hour was the new norm. Well, you were sorely mistaken. But it's the Origins episode, so of course there's a lot to discuss. In Episode 93, Craig wraps up the entire Origins 2018 experience, with a little help from his friends. In the family segment, Tyler looks back at the multitude of games he played both with and without his father. In the third segment, Derek and Matt catch up with their plays before Derek peaces out to make room for full on Origins wrap-up between Matt and Craig.

Can you believe it's already been two weeks? It feels like just yesterday I was staying up past my bed time to post an episode for you lovely listeners, but here I am, red eyes and all. In this episode, Craig is joined, as usual, by the family to chat about their plays including Red Dragon Inn, and a bunch of other games they've all talked about a thousand times. In the third segment, Derek and Matt stop by to talk about oversaturation in the hobby and each of their responses to the release of 3300+ games last year. Strap in, it's a long one, and Craig whines a whole bunch.
