Botch Games Podcast

We've been putting shows out for four years now, not regularly or anything, but it's been four years, so get off my back about it. In this episode we stick to the NEW NEW format of a one hour show, only going over by 7 minutes. Tyler talks for for almost a half an hour, and Craig holds Matt and Derek to about a half an hour. It's a Thanksgiving miracle.

In this installment of The New Ones, Craig tries his best to upset every board gamer ever by explaining his distaste of some incredibly popular games. There's no accounting for taste, apparently.

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.

It's a wide range of games and four out of five of them are Craig approved!

Welcome to episode 96, where the segments are made up and the points don't matter. In this episode Craig is joined by Erin to talk about Altiplano and in the third segment Matt and Derek talk about Brass and Root respectively. I suppose Craig has some things to say as well, but we all know that's not why you keep coming back.
