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.

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.

It's Episode 89! I guess it's time to let the other half of the regulars show their faces. In this episode, Tyler chats with Craig about porting video games into board games and the difference in how those mediums evoke an emotional response. Yeah, I'm as shocked as you are they Tyler gets that deep. In the third segment, Matt H. and Craig talk about games...all the games. No topic here, there be only games!
