Episode 29 – B-Day Invasion

***BREAKING NEWS!!*** We have received word from the front that B-Day has begun. Details are scarce but from what we’ve been hearing our Birthday Boy is taking it on the chin. We believed that he had a good plan of attack and was going to take the enemy by surprise but the enemy has fought back fiercely with a bad attitude and it’s really throwing the Birthday Boy off balance. We’ll return every hour on the hour to update this situation. Good luck Birthday Boy and Godspeed.

Episode 25 – I’m Leaving The Room

Hi and welcome back to our masterclass series: Teaching Board Games For Masochists! We’ve all been in this situation right? You’re teaching a game to a group of humans and one of the creatures chimes in with a categorically false conjecture. You then gently, oh so gently, but firmly like the caress of an orangutan, tell them to stay out of it. Teaching this game is your job after all, you began speaking first! How dare they? Then what happens, they get upset right? If by upset you mean they attempt to burrow into your very soul with eyes so hot you feel as if you are staring into the brimstone coals of Satan’s very testicles? Then yes, they get upset.  Would you like to know how to handle this in a way that doesn’t result in a silent four hour car ride home? Well call the toll free number on your screen now and for just ten easy payments of $79.99 I’ll send you my sure fire system on 12 audio cassettes and you’ll be off that couch and sleeping in your own bed again in no time or your money back! (no refunds, exchanges, or liability outside the Democratic Republic of Congo)

G’day mates! And might I add that I am really getting a kick out of that hat your wearing! In this fantastic & gargantuan sized installment of the (Now legitimately) world famous Not Safe For Worker Placement Podcast we open some correspondence from board gaming’s most strategically turtley continent Australia! Oh, what wonders will spill forth from this cardboard treasure trove? Hint: They’re Australia’s #1 export and responsible for 97.3% of the country’s GDP. After gorging ourselves we get around to talking about so many games it will blow the shrimp right off your barbie! (Or the prawns, if you’re in the know) We talk Founders Of Gloomhaven plus an extensive and tense review of Rising Sun and literally everything in between. So hug the closest Koala bear at hand (but wear gloves, those things are riddled with Chlamydia) and get ready for us to bring the thunder from down under! Well, Maurice takes care of that, as usual…

Episode 22 – Err Of The Dog

Well listeners, the hazy afterglow of our celebratory episode 21 has faded and given way to the mother of all content hangovers. We tried to valiantly fight through the pain and dull the effects with coffee and forced smiles but in the end we did what all hard-core, truth accepting podcasts must do  when faced with non-productivity… We got drunk and recorded a new episode! Don’t worry you probably won’t even notice, it’s not like we have a track record of flawlessly professional recordings to compare it to. In this episode we giveaway a copy of Scythe from Stonemaier Games as well as talk extensively of all the games we’ve been playing including: Royals, Bunny Kingdom, Inbetween, Cold Water Crown, Yamatai & many more! Plus Ben regales you with tales of Geekway To The West 2018 and in our Meepleofmadness Music Minute we feature great tunes by Nick Waterhouse & Chicano Batman! Finally in IRL, Leeandra talks about her latest adventures in China & Ben sets the bar of good parenting surprisingly low! All that & more is poised to sail straight into your auditory canals, so sit back, take two aspirin & a cocktail and call me in the morning!
