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!

It's episode 88 of the show, and it's bittersweet. On the good side, Craig hit release day. On the bad side, each segment only has half the guests. On the good side, the show is a more manageable listening time. On the bad side, no... I think that's it. So a check in the win column, I suppose! In this episode, Craig is joined by Erin in the family segment to talk about their plays and then in the third segment, Derek stops by to talk about necessary and unnecessary expansions prompted by a listener question. It's a good one, so don't skip it (unless you're a Tyler or Matt fanboy, I guess).

The New 100: 71-75 (ft. X-Com Evolution, Lanterns Emperor's Gifts, X-Files, Mechs vs. Minions, Millennium Blades)
In a back to back extravaganza, Craig posts ANOTHER New 100 episode. You;d think he feels bad for missing another main episode. Perhaps he feels guilty for missing his July deadline for New 100 episodes. No matter the cause, he's back with five new games: two expansions, two giant games, and one he was forced to play with no knowledge of the source material. it's a real mixed bag, folks!

In the SEVENTY-FIFTH EVER episode, Craig forgets for the entire show to mention that we're 3/4 of the way to the big 100... But in serious news, Craig is, as always joined by the fam to talk about our plays over the past two weeks. In the third segment, Craig is joined by a VERY SPECIAL guest for a change-up pitch of a segment. Instead of the typical roundtable discussion, Craig and guest review two preview games: Raxxon from Plaid Hat and Before the Earth Explodes from Green Couch! Who knew people trusted any of us with reviewing their games before release! Also be sure to listen for a chance to win a Raxxon code, where you can help save humanity from the evils of the Raxxon Corporation.
