Welcome the 64th EVER episode of the Botch Games Podcast! In this very special episode, Craig is joined, as always, by his loving family to talk about their played games over the last several weeks. Erin then surprises the group by making us lost the five games we would want to see at our "perfect" game night. Guess what? Then we made a contest out of it! Also, in the now infamous third segment, Craig is joined by fellow WDYPTW contributors Eric and Johannes for a mini-topic-round-up where they discuss such topics as input and output randomness, shelves of shame vs. shelves of opportunity, and conducive gaming environments in and out of the home. Thanks so much for listening!

The New 100: 46-50 (ft. Fabled Fruit, Fuji Flush, Everyone Does Not Come Out, 7Wonders Duel: Pantheon, Miracle Pill)
In the latest episode of the New 100, Craig hits the halfway point! This episode he draws ever nearer to finishing out his end of the year plays in attempt to clear out his backlog, because, you know, he's a slacker. The games covered in this block of five games are Fabled Fruit and Fuji Flush from Friedemann Friese and Stronghold Games, Everyone does not come out from T-club, the expansion to 7 Wonders Duel from Bauza, Cathala, and Repos, and finally The Princess Bride: Miracle Pill from Philip DuBarry. Thanks so much for tuning in and helping us break another monthly record of downloads! Cheers!

In the 63rd EVER episode of the podcast (and possibly the longest), we look back at our favorite games played in 2016. The rules, however, are dictated by Erin and Tyler, leading to a list of games that doesn't actually reflect much. We had a darn good time, anyways, and you should enjoy it as well. In the now infamous "THIRD SEGMENT," Craig is joined by Aaron from Boards Alive and Matt from PONG in a mini-topic-round-up (sponsored by dashes). Topics include, but are not limited to, balancing Board Game time with RPG time, Kickstarter successes and flops, and is playing a game once enough times to give an adequate review. Thanks so much for stopping by!
