A PODCAST ABOUT BOARD GAMES, CARD GAMES AND TABLETOP GAMING. HOSTED BY SEAN AND RONAN AND COMING OUT OF THE UK.

Episodes

In our Treasure Hunt episodes we have a look at unreleased games and make our predictions as to whether we think they will play like a dream and be deemed a Treasure or cause the worst nightmares and be branded a Trap.

With Spiel 2018 on the horizon we start of our predictions for the big show right here. Twelve games are poked and prodded until a verdict is reached and you might find something useful for your own Essen lists.

Running the gambit are; Carthago, Sailing Towards Osiris, Welcome to Centerville, Loot Island, Founders of Gloomhaven and Altiplano.

With Ronan off galavanting across Ireland, Sean is left alone in the Pit so he invited Natalie to do a Picking Over the Bones episode.

In the episode, they discuss some lighter/family games in the first half with Thanos Rising, Stuffed Fables and Outfoxed before stepping it up in the second part with Blackwood, Pioneers and Anachrony. Can they last the episode without filing for divorce?
