Episode Three - SPIEL/DICE TOWER AWARDS

0 comments
I wasn't sure if I was going to do this but by popular request on my first stream, people wanted to hear my thoughts on the recent Dice Tower Awards. So I though I'd combine the Spiel Des Jahres awards as well as Dice Tower into one big thoughts episode. Watch me go through the awards on their websites and discuss in more detail!

Project: Elite Review

0 comments
Project: Elite is back for a 2020 refresh thanks to CMON in association with Artipia Games. With that you can expect great minutes but also a great cost. But is there enough game in the box to warrant that price tag or is the player scaling not as wide ranging as we might hope?

Episode Two - Feat. Jeremy Howard

0 comments

Well in general I will be doing 30 minute episodes give or take but this was a special case. Jeremy Howard of ManvsMeeple got in touch with me and asked if we could do a chat over Skype. Of course I jumped at the chance and as you might imagine, we talked for........A LONG TIME.......so much so that I didn't want to do 3 separate episodes for one conversation. So after a poll was held, I decided to release it all as one bumper episode!

The introduction to the show goes into detail about the circumstances and then we get right into 75 minutes of conversation about everything from games to theme to publishers to cats to relationship advice. This was great fun to do but a pain to edit!

0 comments
Everytime someone on Facebook asks "who's your favourite YouTube content creator for board games, it's the same people mentioned all the time! The same guests appearing on shows, whether they are big on board games or not, but what about the little channels? And I don't mean myself, though I am small, I'm talking about all the other content creators in our community who have smaller channels, but love to talk about games none the less. Where's the support for them? Well I'm going to do my part and raise your awareness of 10 Other YouTubers you can give your suppport to. The Conditions? Only that they are preparing reviews predominantly on their own channel and they have less than 10,000 subscribers. If you like the video enough, I'll even consider doing another 10 at a later time.
