essen 2016

Recorded from War Room Studios in Albuquerque, NM : 10/11/16

This episode brought to you by Tasty Minstrel GamesBoardgameTables.com and Meeple Realty – Our guess was our fans could introduce our episodes better than we could, and we were right!  Our first ever fan introduction contest went out without a hitch and we’re certain you all will enjoy it!  Robert Baratheon warns that Winter is coming and we verify that neither of the guys can spell hiatus.  We had a record month in September and its all because of YOU (yes… you). Josh does what Josh does best and talks about food.  We discover that Brandon has a special place in his heart for the puNkin spice.  Man Bear Pig TShirts are available for order, and we want you to wear our colors! ORDER NOW or Man Bear Pig will haunt your dreams. Our Essen 2016 preview is always a favorite segment and we take time to cover many of our most anticipated titles, including a handful of expansions that will make some of our favorite games even better!  We close up with episode with an outstanding interview with Ms. Stephanie Straw.  Stephanie provides an interesting prospective of the Boardgaming world from the eyes of a female, drinks REALLY expensive wine, and insists she should have done better during the Rapid Fire round.
